City can take a step closer to securing the 2017-18 Premier League title on Saturday as they travel to Goodison Park

Manchester City will have the opportunity to seal the 2017-18 Premier League title at bitter rivals Manchester United next weekend if they beat Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

City hold a 16-point advantage over United with just eight games to play for both sides.

Depending on results this weekend, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho will lock horns at the Etihad on April 7 in a tie which could hand the Catalan coach his first top-flight trophy in England.

Sam Allardyce's Everton are unbeaten at home since New Year's Day, however, and are the only Premier League team Guardiola has not beaten while in charge at City.

Will City take another step towards the title, or will the Toffees record their fourth consecutive home victory?

Match Preview

Everton have won six of their last nine home games against Man City in all competitions and remain the only Premier League team to have come away from the Etihad with something to show from it.

The Toffees opened the season with a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture, with Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling scoring the goals.

Should City win the game, however, they would become only the third team to beat all other teams in a single Premier League season, after Chelsea in 2005-06 and Manchester United in 2010-11.

City go into the weekend with a 16-point lead over second-placed Man United, with manager Pep Guardiola currently on 49 top-flight wins from his 68 games in the competition and on the verge of becoming the second quickest manager to reach 50 wins in the Premier League, after Jose Mourinho (63 games).

Everton have proved a thorn in Guardiola's side since arriving in Manchester, with the Toffees' 4-0 victory this fixture last season the Catalan's heaviest ever league defeat as a manager and one of just three occasions in his managerial career he has lost by four goals.

With that in mind, Guardiola and City will be keen to take revenge at Goodison Park this weekend and wmove a step closer to a Premier League crown.
