MCI Vs EVE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: New look Everton side face their toughest test of the new era.
Note- After the Teams came out, we have made some changes to the team
OUT: E Moares, N Otamendi, R Sterling, S Aguero
IN: J Pickford, Fernandinho, Richarlison, R Mahrez
Unbeaten in the three encounters they have stepped out in ever since Carlo Ancelotti has taken over at the club, the new manager effect has been telling at Everton. Ancelotti’s magic has been quick to rub off at the club with the Italian serenading the team in his colors gradually to see him win two straight matches ahead of today’s encounter.
Defeating Newcastle United 2-2 the last time around to move all the way into 10th place, Everton no longer look the drab and dreary outfit that they were a month back. And as the side looks to keep making massive strides in the points tally under Ancelotti’s tutelage, they’ll be up against their biggest test under the manager come today.
When the side takes on Manchester City, the club’s revival will be scrutinised and examined thoroughly. In City, they are taking on a side who are hungry to redeem their faltering season and try to keep squirming their way into the title challenge, something they managed to do the last time around with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United.
City will find it tough to refrain Everton from scoring but that shouldn’t deter them from winning this tie. Their attacking might is something which is way too strong, a unit which will guide the side to three points on the day against a yet to be stabilised Everton defence.

MCI Vs EVE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Missing out on the last encounter after having received a red card for his bizarre challenge against Wolverhampton, Enderson plays out his one match ban to return for the side today. And he’s going to be coming into our side as well with the player clearly a better option than Pickford, a shot stopper who has the ability to rake in some solid points through his saves.
MCI Vs EVE Dream11 Defenders
With the both the sides being languid in defence, the backline from either side didn’t really lure us in for this one. However, price constraints and an imminent need to shelve out staggering amounts in the ensuing dockets meant we had to indulge in the four picks over here.
And all of our selections are based on the attacking impetuous these defenders provide to their side’s attacking sorties. We begin with our duo from Everton, one which comprises of both the fullbacks in the form of Seamus Coleman and Djibril Sidibe, two players who can keep torching down the park and come up with either a goal or assist in between them.
Elsewhere, Hernandez was clearly not an option from City with the player doing little in the attacking front for City. Nicholas Otamendi has scored once this season, something which alludes to his ability to hammer in a header to see us bring him in along with LB Benjamin Mendy for the day.
MCI Vs EVE Dream11 Midfielders
The most heavily deliberated facet of our Dream 11 side, there were a slew of options to choose from. We indulged in a plethora of perusal to usher in the most viable options for the day, beginning with Kevin de Bruyne from Manchester City.
The midfielder has been the focal point of his side’s travails this season, traversing past defences with ease to show why he’s the talisman for his side. He came up with the one goal and assist in the bygone encounter to see us indulge in his services along with CDM Rodrigo Hernandez.
Bernard Silva is left out with the player not enduring the best of times out on the pitch and with David Silva returning from injury, Bernardo’s role could be limited for this one. Elsewhere, Richarlison has the 6 goals but his price tag of 10 credits and waning form sees us move away from him with us opting for the enigmatic Bernardo instead.
MCI Vs EVE Dream11 Strikers
Scoring for his side the alt time around, striker Sergio Aguero showed why he’s such a vibrant player and pivotal performer for Manchester City to make him our first pick for the day. The side’s top scorer with the 11 goals, Raheem Sterling is being brought in as well as part of our duo from the side.
Elsewhere, Everton will be represented by Dominic Calvert-Lewin with the striker leading the ranks of goal scorers with the two goals around the last time taking his tally upto 8 goals for the season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin de Bruyne is our captain while Sterling is the vice-captain.
