Head to Head

Manchester City hold a 74-68 head-to-head advantage over Everton, with the two sides drawing 47 of their 189 competitive meetings. 

Earlier this season in the Premier League, Manchester City beat Everton 3-1 courtesy of goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva.

Everton Form

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have lost their last two matches, with a 2-1 home defeat against Burnley last weekend coming as a huge surprise. 

Chris Wood and Dwight McNeill put Burnley two up before Dominic Calvert-Lewin reduced the deficit.

They also lost 2-0 at Chelsea and have been an all-or-nothing team for most of the season having drawn just four matches.

The Toffees knocked out Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and Tottenham to make the quarter-finals.

Everton Injuries & Team News

Carlo Ancelotti’s main issue will be in goal, as first-choice goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is ruled out and his deputy Robin Olsen is a doubt.

This could lead to 21-year-old Joao Virginia starting.

Fabian Delph, Abdoulaye Doucouré, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and James Rodríguez will all miss the cup tie. 

Manchester City Form

Pep Guardiola’s side have responded excellently since the recent derby defeat to Manchester United, beating both Southampton (5-2) and Fulham (3-0) emphatically in the Premier League.

They defeated Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-0 in midweek to reach the Champions League quarter-finals, and are still in the hunt to win four trophies this season. 

City have had a simplistic route to the FA Cup quarterfinals, beating Birmingham, Cheltenham and Swansea comfortably.

Manchester City Injuries & Team News

Pep Guardiola has a fully-fit squad, but following a midweek Champions League fixture against Borussia Mönchengladbach it is likely he will make changes.

Zack Steffen is the most likely change in goal, with the likes of Nathan Ake, Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero are all possible starters.
