STAR PREVIEW Man City v Everton

first_img[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ohn Wayne et al starred in the classic 1960’s film The Longest Day and it felt a little like The Longest Match at Anfield last night with Liverpool eventually prevailing 6-5 in the penalty shoot-out. Justice for Liverpool after Stoke’s first half goal from Marko Arnautovic was well offside, but no so just for punters (including me) who were on the DRAW at half-time.Now the very real prospect of the first Merseyside final in 27 years if Everton can progress against Man City tonight.There’s a reasonable chance too as Everton hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg at Goodison.That could well dictate tactics from Everton who need just a draw to get to Wembley and draws are what Everton do for fun. They have now drawn eight of their last 13 away games!Everton will be without both midfielder Muhamed Besic (hamstring) and winger Kevin Mirallas (tendon) but Man City have bigger problems with Eliaquim Mangala, Vincent Kompany, Aleksandar Kolarov, Wilfried Bony and Samir Nasri all sidelined.City boss Manuel Pellegrini has said that Willy Caballero will take over from Joe Hart in goal.Pellegrini added: “It’s the third time we’ll play Everton in one month – we know their team. The most important thing is to try to play another final at Wembley. That is our target. After we lost to Everton 2-1, I said that if we don’t qualify for the final, it’s not because of that game but because we can’t win at home at least 1-0.”Man City v EvertonCapital One Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg19:45 Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Jan 2016 PREMIER Man City 0-0 EvertonJan 2016 CAPITAL ONE CUP Everton 2-1 Man CityAug 2015 PREMIER Everton 0-2 Man CityJan 2015 PREMIER Everton 1-1 Man CityDec 2014 PREMIER Man City 1-0 EvertonMay 2014 PREMIER Everton 2-3 Man CityOct 2013 PREMIER Man City 3-1 EvertonMar 2013 PREMIER Everton 2-0 Man CityDec 2012 PREMIER Man City 1-1 EvertonJan 2012 PREMIER Everton 1-0 Man CityThe DRAW is tempting at 7/2 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK DRAW for 6 points at around 7/2 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: LOSS 4.51 POINTSWhat’s your view?
