Manchester City to win away to Everton
Everton scores goals, but defensively they are very unstable. Martinez’ men have dropped to 11th in the Premier League and are 6 points behind European qualification. There is although a shortcut to Europe through the Capital One Cup. They will try to win the semi-final first leg and go to the away game with higher expectations. However, their defensive inconsistency is a big issue. Robles is expected to start instead of Howard.
Manchester City looks well capable of exploiting that weakness. Sergio Aguero scored the winner at Watford on Saturday and the way that the match was turned around must be a big boost to the Citizens. Kompany is out, but City is learning to play well even without him. Boni is also out.
