Manchester City have the chance to return to the top of the Premier League table on Wednesday evening.
City are playing The Toffees at Goodison Park, as the original game was due to be played on the weekend of the Carabao Cup final – which Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking to defend.
This game now offers the Premier League champions the chance to return to the summit for the first time in two months – whilst Liverpool will be hoping for a favour from their near neighbours.
See below for a preview on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
