Manchester City

We take a look at Manchester City teams news ahead of their Premier League clash against Everton this weekend.

While Manchester City looked quiet this January transfer window, they created a lot of buzz in the week that after deadline day. That’s because they’re about to close in on the signing of Savio, a 19-year-old winger who is currently plays at surprising Girona.

Savio currently is on loan at Girona, the shocking title contenders in La Liga.

Manchester City teams news against Everton

Savio looks set to complete the move this summer. Manchester City have a fully fit squad, as they look to clash with Everton.

Star players Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland and hattrick hero Phil Foden are all fit to start against Everton. This may be the return game for Manuel Akanji as Pep Guardiola eases him into regular playing minutes carefully.

Shifting gears to the Toffees, Arnaut Danjuma (ankle) and Dele Alli (groin) are out with injuries.

Seamus Coleman (knock), Amadou Onana (knee), Abdoulaye Doucoure (thigh), Ben Godfrey (calf) and Andre Gomes (calf) are all doubts.

This is a match-up of two sides at opposite ends of the table. Although they do have one thing in common- FFP concerns.
