TEAM NEWS

John Stones returns to the starting XI and Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus are among the substitutes for Manchester City’s Premier League game against Everton.

The former Toffees defender, who was an unused substitute against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, comes into the side in place of Kyle Walker, who drops to the bench.

Grealish is back in the squad after a three-match absence due to a shin injury, whilst Jesus is involved for the first time since our draw with Southampton last month after recovering from a knock sustained on international duty.

CITY: Ederson, Stones, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodrigo, Gundogan (C), De Bruyne, Bernardo, Foden, Sterling.

SUBS: Carson, Slicker, Walker, Ake, Jesus, Grealish, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Mahrez.

EVERTON: Pickford, Coleman (c), Holgate, Keane, Kenny, Allan, Doucoure, Van de Beek, Gordon, Iwobi, Richarlison.

SUBS: Begovic, Patterson, Gray, Townsend, Mykolenko, Branthwaite, Rondon, El Ghazi, Dele.

LAST TIME OUT

City's 15-match unbeaten run was brought to an end as Harry Kane's dramatic late strike secured Tottenham a 3-2 victory.

Guardiola's men had twice come from behind at the Etihad Stadium through Ilkay Gundogan and a stoppage time Riyad Mahrez penalty, but the Spurs captain stole in to head home a 95th-minute winner.

FORM GUIDE

Defeat to Tottenham aside, City travel to Goodison as the Premier League leaders.

Guardiola's men are unbeaten on the road since defeat on the opening day to Spurs, and have won 19 of our last 22 matches in all competitions.

Everton were beaten 2-0 by Southampton in their last encounter and currently sit 16th in the Premier League table.

However, Frank Lampard's men will be buoyed by their recent home form, winning each of their last two matches at Goodison Park.

PREVIOUS MEETING

Rodrigo's thunderbolt was the pick of the bunch as City breezed to a 3-0 victory against Everton at the Etihad Stadium in November. 

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva added to Rodrigo's strike to complement an utterly dominant display by Guardiola's men.
