Manchester City have only won one of their last eight Premier League games against Everton (W1, D1, L6).
Their sole victory in that run was a 2-0 home win in September 2011. That is their only clean sheet in their last 15 games against the Toffees.
City have scored in their last 53 Premier League home matches – an on-going club record in the top flight. Birmingham City were the last team to shut them out, in a 0-0 draw on 13 November 2010.
They have scored eight goals from crosses in the Premier League this season – twice as many as the next best side.
City are the only team in the division yet to concede in the first half this season.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have lost a league-high six points from winning positions this season. They lost only seven points from winning positions in the whole of 2012-13.
Pellegrini has won both of his previous matches against Everton: 2-1 victories home and away for Villarreal in the Champions League qualifying round in August 2005.
Victory would give Everton four Premier League wins in a row – a feat they last managed between February and March 2008. That sequence included a 2-0 victory at Manchester City.
The Toffees are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League. However, they are one point and two places worse off than at this stage last season.
They can equal their longest unbeaten start to a Premier League season of seven matches, set in 2006-07.
Romelu Lukaku has scored six goals in his last five Premier League appearances. He has only played 220 minutes overall in that period, so averages a goal every 37 minutes.
