Manchester City vs Everton

Guardiola insists he will stick to his own gameplan for City's meeting with Everton on Monday 

Sigurdsson signed for Everton on a £45m deal from Swansea last week and by his own admission, lacks match fitness.

"He will get time next week".

Head-to-Head: In the last five encounters between the two teams, Everton won two while Manchester City managed one, drawing other two.

"It's going to be a tough game on Monday night". Everton are now looking to become the first team he's failed to beat in any of his first three matches. After playing at the Etihad Monday night, the Blues face a return leg in Croatia in the Europa League and a trip to play Chelsea next weekend.

Ahead of the game Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said: "We try to have the best squad possible for the long season".

I'm not sure where Gylfi Sigurdsson will come in and he might put him on the bench, but I think he needs games and I'd throw him straight in alongside Rooney in that 10 position and let them interchange as Rooney likes to float.

City captain and centre-back Kompany was a keen observer and felt the goal showed numerous qualities some critics claimed deserted Rooney over a hard final couple of seasons at Old Trafford remain in full working order. You can also get the team news and Opta stats!

Everton opened their league campaign with a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Goodison Park. "Stoke made it really hard and if you now that, and you keep the clean sheet and the points at home, it is a flawless result". The venue of the match Manchester City vs Everton is at City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is looking forward to the clash and he said: "We know in seven days we play three away games, hard ones, which starts on Monday with City".

The weight of possession and opportunities created and taken by City will get them home in this one.
