Manchester City’s only win in their last seven Premier League games against Everton came in September 2011, when Mario Balotelli and James Milner scored in a 2-0 home victory.
Everton have won each of their last three home matches against City. It’s 92 years since they last won four successive home matches in this fixture.
The two clubs met on this date in the top-flight 101 years ago; City won 4-0 at their then-Hyde Road ground.
Everton’s FA Cup defeat by Wigan last weekend was only their second home defeat in 17 matches in all competitions this season. Their other defeat came against Chelsea in December.
The Toffees have only failed to score in four of their 28 league games this campaign; however, three of those have come in the last seven matches.
David Moyes’s side have conceded more headed goals (14) in the Premier League this season than any other club.
Everton have drawn 12 of their league games, a joint-league high with Stoke and Norwich.
If selected, Leon Osman will be making his 300th start in all competitions for Everton, while Nikica Jelavic will be appearing in his 50th match for the Toffees. He has scored 18 goals for the club.
Victory would provide Manchester City with their 1,800th win in league football.
Manchester City have won their last two Premier League matches and kept clean sheets in them both.
They have shut out the opposition in six of their last eight league matches, and kept a league-high 13 clean sheets in 28 games this season.
Roberto Mancini’s side have only dropped four points from winning positions this season, winning 14 games and drawing two. It’s the equal-best record in the Premier League alongside Manchester United and Arsenal.
City’s only defeat in 13 meetings against top-half opposition came in December’s Manchester derby against United (W7, D5, L1).
That was an excellent match for Everton, even with only 10 men.
I really felt like they were the better team and definitely deserved the win.
