The short distance Everton must travel to face Manchester City doesn’t reduce the scale of the challenge the Toffees face.
Manchester City welcomes Everton to The Etihad Stadium on Wednesday in the Premier League. Manchester City has the best home record in the league, having earned 24 points from 10 games. Everton has had difficulty winning home and away games in 2015-16.
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is expected to be healthy enough to play against Manchester City, having suffered a slight ankle injury last week. Lukaku is the Premier League’s joint-top scorer this season (tied with Jamie Vardy with 15 goals) and has scored 12 times in his last 12 outings in England’s top flight.
Manchester City will be without captain Vincent Kompany, without whom it has struggled.
When: Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 2:45 p.m. ET
