With the Citizens struggling to hit top gear in attack, Al Hain-Cole does not expect them to find goals too easy to come by against Ancelotti’s men

Carlo Ancelotti has the chance to really endear himself to the Everton supporters when his side take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

The former Napoli manager has already made an extremely promising start to life on Merseyside, overseeing consecutive wins over Burnley and Newcastle United.

However, he is priced at 19/2 (10.50) with 888Sport to make it three in a row with a shock victory over the league champions.

The Citizens bounced back from a surprise 3-2 defeat against Wolves to beat Sheffield United 2-0 on Sunday, and are clear 7/25 (1.28) favourites to come out on top once again in this one.

Three of the last four league meetings between this duo at this stadium have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 24/5 (5.80) on offer for this one to also finish up all square.

John Stones and David Silva are both doubtful, while Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane remain long-term absentees.

Alex Iwobi, Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are all ruled out, although Morgan Schneiderlin and Beni Baningime could be in contention following injury.

While his impact has been impressive, Ancelotti must be grateful to caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson for laying some groundwork in his three matches in temporary command – following up victory over Chelsea with combative draws against Manchester United and Arsenal.

Having conceded just once in two games under the new boss, the Toffees must fancy their chances of making life difficult for Pep Guardiola’s team at a ground where they have conceded a fairly modest six goals in the last five league visits.

With City looking far from their sparkling best thanks in part to the busy fixture list, odds of 41/50 (1.82) seem like decent value on them seeing under 3.5 goals for a seventh league home game in eight when they face a revitalised Everton.
