Charlie Nicholas is tipping Manchester City to claim a 3-1 victory at Everton in Saturday evening’s game at Goodison Park.

The Citizens head into the clash looking to string together a series of positive results after one defeat and one draw allowed Liverpool FC to build a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Manchester City are aiming to try and win the Premier League title for the third season in a row and they currently find themselves five points behind Jurgen Klopp’s title hopefuls.

Pep Guardiola’s men are now gearing up for a trip to an Everton side who have only won two games in the top flight this season and have lost three of their last four.

And former Arsenal star Nicholas is tipping Manchester City to have no problems in securing the three points when they head to Goodison Park this weekend.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “Although Marco Silva got a good result in the week against Sheffield Wednesday, he is under serious pressure.

“Their home form was good and then they bombed against Sheffield United. I don’t know what their agenda is.

“They signed Moise Kean, who looks lively and decent, but has been given very little service, and then you have Richarlison, who sometimes doesn’t look interested, and the talented Gylfi Sigurdsson behind.

“Idrissa Gueye going to PSG was a big blow. They brought on Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun against the Blades and took Bernard off, who was their best player.

“What is Silva’s goal? If they concede first, what are they going to do? And what happened to Tom Davies? He is on the bench but isn’t close to the first team. City will keep the ball and pick Everton off when they attack. Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are all scoring. They recovered pretty well from embarrassment at Norwich.”

Manchester City are aiming to retain their title this term after they won the Premier League by a single point last season.

The Citizens are also looking to challenge for the Champions League this term as they look to win Europe’s elite club competition for the first time.
