Three things to look out for when Manchester City host Everton
John Stones faces his old club this Saturday, as Manchester City host Everton in the pick of the three o’clock kick offs. The England international moved across Lancashire in a £47.5 million move this summer, and has settled in well at Eastlands under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.
The footballing public was waiting to see how City would respond to their first moment of adversity, and they were are about to find out. Guardiola’s side were well beaten by Spurs at White Hart Lane last time out, but welcome back Spanish forward Nolito from suspension, and star man Kevin de Bruyne is not too far away either.
City still look a formidable side, and any club that finishes above them will have a good chance of winning the title. Everton won four of their first five matches under Ronald Koeman, but have had two indifferent results of late; losing 1-0 away at Bournemouth and being held to a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park by Crystal Palace.
