Pep preview: INJURY NEWS

Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne's minutes must be managed carefully if the pair are to maintain top form.

The dynamic duo featured in Saturday's Boxing Day triumph over Newcastle, as City ran out 2-0 winners, thanks to goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres.

De Bruyne, who was rested in the midweek Carabao Cup quarter-final success at Arsenal, captained the side to victory, while Aguero continued his comeback from injury with a cameo display from the bench.

Guardiola was delighted with the contribution of both players but - previewing Monday's trip to Everton, which takes place 48 hours after the Newcastle win - highlighted the importance of rest and recovery.

Asked for an update on the health of his squad, with Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus absent having tested positive for COVID-19, he replied: “The rest are well.

CARLO ANCELOTTI PREVIEW

“We did better away [so far] this season but there is only one reason: if we had our supporters behind us at Goodison Park, we’d have won more games.

“We are pleased, we won a lot of games, this is the fifth game we won away this season and this is really good

“We don’t have to look [at the future] too much, we have another game in two days and have to try to do our best to prepare for this game.

“It is almost impossible but we have to try.”

LAST MEETING

The last time we met with the Toffees came on New Years' Day as a second half Gabriel Jesus braced proved enough to secure all three points at the Etihad Stadium.

Phil Foden thought he had given City the lead in the first half after he tapped in a Riyad Mahrez cross, however VAR ruled the Algerian was offside in the build-up.

CITY+  SIGN UP TO ACCESS EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

Into the second half and City's patience finally paid off when Jesus picked up the ball on the edge of the box and curled an effort past Jordan Pickford to put Guardiola's side ahead.

Minutes later Jesus and City had a second as the Brazilian capped off a wonderful team move by sliding the ball in at the back post to deservedly double our lead.

The visitors did pull one back in the final stages, but it proved too little too late for the Toffees.
