Premier League Preview: Manchester City - Everton

Both sides are on good streaks, but with the Toffees having faced a testing 120 minutes in midweek, will they have the legs to deal with their fresh-faced opponents?


PROBABLE LINEUPS

MANCHESTER CITY

Hart
Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy
Barry, Toure Yaya
Silva, Aguero, Nasri
Dzeko
EVERTON

Howard
Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines
Coleman, Fellaini, Barkley, Drenthe
Cahill
Saha


Manchester City looks set to return to the same lineup which drew with Fulham last Sunday after a midweek defeat of Birmingham in the League Cup, despite Owen Hargreaves' impressive debut.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Roberto Mancini, but the midfield pairing of James Milner and Nigel de Jong are set to miss out again with a concussion and a foot injury respectively.

For Everton, Victor Anichebe is the only player missing with a long-term groin injury, while manager David Moyes can look to a strong set of deadline-day loan signings to bolster his team.

The form of youngster Ross Barkley is reportedly attracting the interest of Chelsea and Manchester United already, and it looks likely that the 17-year-old will play on Saturday.
