Carlo Ancelotti’s reign as manager of Everton started well after a 1-0 win over Burnley and it’s clear that the Italian is aiming to make the Toffees difficult to beat between now and the end of the season.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The former Chelsea manager has earned a reputation for making his teams defensively organised and it’s clear that Ancelotti will look to nullify Manchester City for the New Year’s Day trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Both sides are sure to show a few changes for this encounter considering the hectic schedule of fixtures that take place at this time of year, with Pep Guardiola privately conceding defeat in the Premier League title race but keen to continue the winning habit.

City will certainly want to get ahead of Leicester City in the pecking order although the reality is that the Champions League has become more significant than ever to Guardiola who has recently had to contend with the departure of right-hand man Mikel Arteta.

The game looks ripe for Everton to successfully set their stall out and keep the scoreline down, with the Toffees aiming to hit their north-west rivals on the counter-attack through lively players such as Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

While a home win looks heavily likely, we’re happy to go with the prospect of three goals or less being scored, with the Toffees boasting a five-game unbeaten run at the time of writing if you include the 2-2 EFL Cup draw with Leicester.

Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina are the centre backs tasked with taming the likes of Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero, while we might see Tom Davies drafted in alongside Fabian Delph to add some steel.

This bet allows for the prospect of a City 3-0 winning scoreline while there’s the possibility that the Toffees can limit their opponents to one or two goals.
