Fans can watch the Manchester City vs. Everton football match live online and see one team with Premier League title hopes and another hoping to sneak into the Champions League.
Manchester City is just three games behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League standings and has a game at hand, while Everton has a chance to finish in the top four if they can overcome Arsenal, who is four points ahead for the final Champions League spot.
The teams face off Saturday at 5:30 pm local time.
It seems that Everton picked the wrong year to sit at the fringes of the Champions League. In seven of the last 11 seasons, their point tally of 69 would have earned them a slot, but as it stands they need to win and get some help from Arsenal. They do need just one more point to secure a Europa League spot, but manager Roberto Martinez said he isn’t thinking about that.
“We don’t look at it that way. We have 69 points and we want to beat that. We don’t take it lightly,” he said. We need six points because I still think 75 points will be very much an exceptional figure, wherever it takes you. The only thing you can control in football is what you can do. Seventy-five points in the last three seasons would have got you in the top three. We are not a team who are happy just to do enough, that is not in our nature.”
Fans who watch the Manchester City vs. Everton football match live online will see a City squad desperate for a win for any hope of catching Liverpool. They will not have history on their side, as Everton has beaten Man City in their last four matches at home.
Manchester City could get a boost from the return of playmaker David Silva, who missed last week’s win against Crystal Palace with an ankle injury.
“David is a very important player for us. He will be in the squad list,” said Manuel Pellegrini.
