Anxieties and pressure are mounting in the Premier League, according to reports from TopBettingReviews.com as matches weed out teams that traditionally stood strong.
Liverpool lost to Chelsea this last weekend, in spite of the fact it was on home turf.
With that loss, the Reds now lead the Blues by a mere two points, and carry a three-point lead over the Manchester City squad that has played only one less match than the other two clubs.
If they manage to win their last three matches, City stands a chance of snatching the EPL title.
Everton has a chance to land in the top four ranking, but will not be able to win the EPL crown. This in itself will be a big gain for them, guaranteeing them a spot in next season’s Champion’s League.
Trailing behind Arsenal by just four points , the Toffees will be facing City as home underdogs. They ranked fourth place in the EPL after winning last Monday night’s game.
The Premier League odds had favored Manchester City posted at -130, with Everton at +350, and a draw line of +280. Manchester had defeated Everton 3-1 earlier in the season.
The question now is, which Everton squad will play this next match? They lost a home game against Southampton, in between two other home games they won, against Arsenal and Manchester City.
Everton’s strongpoint? Their defense. It has conceded the third fewest goals in the EPL.
This strong defense will be put to the test when pitted up against a City offense that has not only scored the second most goals in the league, they have outscored Everton by 36 goals this season.
Man City, since losing to Liverpool, has drawn once and has consecutively won twice. Goals scored over the three-match span total seven.
Everton’s strong defensive lineup will have much to contend with while playing Man City’s strong scoring history. The strong partnership of Yaya Touré and Edin Dzeko has resulted in a combined 31 goals this season.
Football fans around the globe await the match to see who comes out on top.
