Everton vs Man City team news: three ruled out and two defenders doubtful - gallery

Everton and Manchester City injury news ahead of the Premier League fixture at Goodison Park.

Everton look to take another step towards Premier League survival when they welcome Manchester City to Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Toffees know they have a battle to retain their top-flight status this season. With three matches remaining, at least one more victory will be required - although it could be more depending on relegation rivals Leeds United, Leicester City and Nottingham Forest.

Yet Sean Dyche’s side are heavy underdogs when they face City. Pep Guardiola’s men are closing in on a third successive title, while they’re in the Champions League semi-finals and have reached the FA Cup final to boot.

Everton head into the game after a shock 5-1 victory over Brighton last time out. And they can take heart from the 1-1 draw they earned against City when the two sides met at the Etihad Stadium on New Year’s Eve.

Ahead of the encounter, here’s a look at the latest injury news for both sides.
