Man City will try to maintain their 100% win record of this season as they will meet Everton at the Goodinson Park this week. Their formidable form might produce a nail-biting match as Roberto Martinez’s team have made a good start with four points from their opening two matches.
Manager R. Martinez will be happy to see his team’s good performance on the pitch. The highly motivated Toffees have shown their determination in the field.
They drew the opening match against Watford coming back in the game after conceding two goals. Barkley and A. Kone’s goal secured them one point in the opening match. In the second match, they defeated Southampton by 3-0. Their star striker Romelu Lukako scored twice against Southampton which showed his determination to emerge as the league’s one of the best strikers. Ross Barkley has been in superb form since the beginning of this campaign scoring two goals in two matches and assisting one in the second match. With these two players in good form, Martinez will definitely have a formidable attack to trouble the back four of Man City.
Man City have been quite impressive since the beginning of 2015-16 season. They achieved all the six points from the opening two fixtures.
Beating both West Brom and Chelsea by 3-0 deficit, Manuel Pellegrini’s team will be highly motivated for their 3rd consecutive win. Their star striker Sergio Aguero is back and scored a superb goal against Chelsea to prove that he is hungry for goals. David Silva was as usual brilliant in both games providing assists and controlled the midfield superbly along with Yaya Toure and Fernandinho.
