Manchester City v Everton - Preview and possible lineups
City: Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne could both return to the Manchester City team, although it will be a late decision on both. Mendy and Danilo remain out in the long term.
Everton: Idrissa Gueye was taken off against Watford last time out, but otherwise Everton have a full squad to pick from.
Guardiola: Last season one of the secrets was that, after we dropped points, immediately we were able to make another big run winning games. Of course, it is important. We have to focus on what we have to do beat them. The Christmas time is here. It is the toughest part of the season in terms of the opponents, results and so on. We must try to keep focused. It is a top side, I am really impressed with how they played so far.
Silva: We know City are a good team, with a very good manager. It is a challenge, but our players have shown they like this type of game. In some moments we are more happy with our performance and have got good results - in other moments we will have to improve. We will continue to work had to improve and to get results for the club and the fans.
