Everton vs Man City lineups

Idrissa Gueye had to be substituted during the defeat to Tottenham and is a major doubt for this game. His replacement Andre Gomes scored and is in line for his first start of the season after a long time out with a calf problem.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (thigh) is pushing to be a part of Dyche’s midfield options, while veteran fullbacks Seamus Coleman and Ashley Young also face late checks.

Projected Everton lineup (4-5-1, right to left): Pickford (GK) — Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko — Harrison, Onana, Garner, Gomes, McNeil — Calvert-Lewin

City fans were excited by the return of Kevin De Bruyne to first-team training during the Club World Cup, although this game is almost certainly comes to soon during his recovery from hamstring surgery. 

Rodri was the victim of a horror tackle from Fluminense’s Alexsander and had to be substituted in Jeddah, although the Spain midfielder appears to have come through effectively unscathed.

Erling Haaland is pushing to return from the foot problem that has sidelined him from City’s past four games across all competitions, while Jeremy Doku (thigh) is expected to miss out once again.

Projected Man City lineup (3-2-4-1, right to left): Ederson (GK) — Walker, Dias, Ake — Stones, Rodri — Silva, Lewis, Foden, Grealish — Alvarez.
