Everton v Man City: Can the champions push Everton fans over the edge?


Bookmark and Share

Everton fans were left feeling blue last weekend following their embarrassing FA Cup exit at home to Wigan Athletic. This weekend they have the chance to restore some pride by beating the champions Manchester City, but can David Moyes lift his players for this huge game or will they suffer another bad day at the office?

The omens look good for the Toffees as Goodison has never been a happy hunting ground for the visitors. In fact, City have only triumphed on Everton soil twice during the Premier League era. Their last success came in 2009 thanks to goals from Robinho and Steven Ireland.

Despite the gloom surrounding the club right now, Everton have only lost five games this season - that's one fewer than City themselves! Only Chelsea have left Goodison with all three points in the Premier League so the home fans should be expecting a response from their players.

However, City have finally found some form, winning their past four games in a row without even conceding a single goal. It may be too late to snatch the title off their neighbours United, but they are not going to give it up without a fight between now and May.

So who will come out on top? Here is what our pundits think
