Match of the Mid-Week

Everton V Man City

Everton v Manchester City 17/02/2021 21:15
MY11 SAY 1-2

Two legendary managers face-off, as Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton will be welcoming Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to the Etihad Stadium, as both clubs bid to close the gap on Liverpool.

 

In 46 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Everton have won 18 games, while Manchester City have won 19 matches, with the other 9 games ending in a draw. Guardiola’s charge have won their last 5 encounters, scoring at least 2 goals in all.

 

Everton will be without Richarlison, Allan, James Rodriguez, Fabian Delph, Lucas Digne, and Jean-Philippe Gbamin due to injury. Manchester City, on the other hand, will be without Eric García due to injury, while Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus will miss due to a positive COVID-19 test.

 

A win for Everton will take them level on points with Merseyside rivals Liverpool, but they face off against Manchester City, who are yet to hit top gear, but are defending well. This looks like a close game, but Guardiola will likely laugh last over Don Carlo.

Match of the Mid-Week

Sevilla v Villarreal 29/12/2020 17:00
MY11 SAY 2-1

Arguably the standout fixture for the next La Liga matchday will take place at Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan on Tuesday, as Sevilla will be hosting Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal.

 

In the last 27 La Liga meetings between these two teams, Sevilla have won 11 games, while Villarreal have won 8 matches, with the other 8 games ending in a draw. Five of their last eight meetings have ended in draws.

 

Sevilla will be without Fernando, Tomas Vaclik, and Sergio Escudero due to injury. Villarreal, on the other hand, will be without Saidy Janko, Javi Moyano, and Kiko Olivas due to injury.

 

Both teams are unbeaten in their last five games, but Sevilla have amassed more points, while Naija star Samuel Chukwueze has struggled for game-time with the Yellow Submarines. This will be a close all-out encounter, but the Nervionenses will do enough to edge this encounter.

Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, and Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard both have several things in common, and they were both top players in their playing days, controlling the midfield with finesse.

Mikel Arteta started his managerial career as an assistant to Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, and he recorded a few successes with the Cityzens. He took over as the coach of the Gunners on the 22nd of December 2019, and he has managed the team 52 times, winning 29 games, losing 15 matches, and 8 games ended in a stalemate.

As manager of Arsenal, the 38-year-old Spaniard has won 2 trophies, beating Chelsea to win the FA Cup last season and he won the Community Shield at the start of this campaign. Lampard, on the other hand, had a playing career filled with lots of laurels, but he is yet to lift any trophy as a manager.

Both managers have faced each other 3 times, winning one game each, and the other match ending in a draw, but with Arsenal’s recent crisis, you may want to fancy the 42-year-old Englishman to come out tops in the London derby.

 

Do you think Arteta can shock Lampard and Chelsea?
