It has been three long weeks of waiting, but Manchester City are finally back in action this afternoon as they visit Goodison Park to face Everton.
Pep Guardiola’s men will be hoping for a win to move them one step closer to the inevitable Premier League title that awaits, but have a history of struggling at Goodison and last season were on the wrong end of a 4-0 drubbing.
Paul Tierney is today’s referee and here are the starting lineups selected by Guardiola and his counterpart Sam Allardyce.
Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Jagielka (c), Baines, Walcott, Schneiderlin, Bolasie, Calvert-Lewin, Rooney, Tosun
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany (c), Otamendi, Laporte, Fernandinho, Silva, De Bruyne, Sané, Sterling, Jesus
The match can be viewed on BT Sport 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
