Manchester City continue their quest for the quadruple when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final.
The Citizens are 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and eased into the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, having already booked a place in the Carabao Cup final.
Everton vs Manchester City Latest Odds
Having won their last six consecutive matches against this opposition, City are 1/3 (1.33) favourites with bet365 to move one step closer to this trophy by coming out on top on Merseyside.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have lost their last two games in the league but can be backed at 15/2 (8.50) to bounce back by pulling off a big upset here.

Everton vs Manchester City Team News
Jordan Pickford, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and James Rodriguez are all ruled out through injury, with Robin Olsen facing a late fitness test.
With a fully fit squad to choose from, the guests could offer the likes of Zack Steffen, Benjamin Mendy and Sergio Aguero a rare start in a reshuffled line-up.
Everton vs Manchester City Preview
Whatever team Pep Guardiola chooses to go with, it is hard to see their pursuit of a clean sweep of trophies being derailed at a ground where they have won on each of the last four consecutive visits by two clear goals.
What’s more, the Toffees come into this clash missing a number of key players through injury and on the back of a disappointing defeat against Burnley – their fourth loss in six home matches.
With just four regulation time wins on home turf in their last 16 matches in all competitions, the hosts certainly don’t look capable of upsetting a City team that has enjoyed 24 victories in the previous 25 fixtures.
Everton vs Manchester City Tips and Predictions
Instead, odds of 5/6 (1.83) seem like decent value on Everton losing by at least two clear goals for a sixth game in seven against this opposition.
