A dip in form from Pep Guardiola's side in November and December appears to be firmly behind them, with City now on a nine-match winning run in all competitions after easing past Brentford, an ominous run of form as the title race begins to kick into gear.
The lunchtime kick-off offers City an opportunity to go above Liverpool, at least until the Reds face Burnley later in the day, while last season's treble-winners still have a game in hand to come too.
Everton are on a run of three straight draws in the Premier League, though the point they picked up last time out against Tottenham was not enough to lift the Toffees out of the relegation zone.

Man City vs Everton prediction
There is a familiar feel to City's winning run, as they start to show their best form heading into the run-in just as they have in previous seasons.
The defence has not been entirely convincing but the goals are flowing, and Everton have not won away in the Premier League for nearly two months. City can be expected to cruise to victory and move to the top of the table.
Man City to win, 3-0.
