Manchester City v Everton Preview, Premiership, Saturday 5th October 2013

Manchester City head into this game on saturday afternoon having had a difficult start to the new season campaign and new manager Manuel Pellegrini will no doubt already been under be pressure to keep his job having seen his side lose twice already.

Things got even worse midweek with their 3-1 defeat at home against Bayern Munich in the Champions League where they were completely outplayed and dominated through out the whole 90mins and failure to win this game on saturday afternoon could see the 60 year old manager looking for a new job next week.

Everton have had an excellent start to their new season and currently remain the only club undefeated in the league table after six games played. New manager Roberto Martinez will be delighted with his players performances and the defeat against Fulham in the league cup does not seem to have had any negative impact on the confidence of his side and everyone involved at the club will feel they can add more misery to Manchester City fans by winning this game on saturday.

Manchester City v Everton Match Betting Odds Market.

Manchester City have been struggling to win games this season so it does come as a bit of a surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a best price of 4/6 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) currently available.

The Draw could be a sensible cover play here at odds of 3/1 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) as Everton have proved extremely difficult to beat in the league this season and Manchester City do seem to be in a run of bad form at the moment.

Everton have to be the value here at a current best price of 9/2 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets, No Deposit Required for New Customers) as they are unbeaten in the league this season and playing some excellent football at the moment under the guidance of new manager Roberto Martinez.

Manchester City v Everton Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I would expect many people to have Manchester City down as a home win on their weekend coupons, but for me that does look a risky choice as with the way Bayern Munich ripped them apart midweek in the Champions League match it gave a clear indication that this side has problems and with Everton currently unbeaten in the league this season and playing some excellent stuff under Roberto Martinez the away side could easily add more misery to Manuel Pellegrini and his side by winning this game.

Joe Hart will have been blamed for the first Bayern Munich goal midweek and it does seem like the England number one is struggling at the moment with his form as he has already conceded seven times this season, three of those coming in last weekend’s defeat against Aston Villa who were missing both Benteke and Agbonlahor.

Everton do have the players in their side that can score important goals and Lukaku will certainly keep the Manchester City defence busy this weekend and for me the away side do look the value play here at odds which in my opinion are overpriced.

The goal stats suggest only one or two goals to be scored during this game, so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score, Total Match Goals and First Goal Scorer could also provide some additional value in what looks like being a very tight game.
