Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Everton

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash against Everton.

Manchester City will be looking to make it back-to-back Premier League victories when they welcome Carlo Ancelotti's Everton to the Etihad Stadium on New Year's Day.

Pep Guardiola's side returned to winning ways against Sheffield United on Sunday and will now be eyeing their 14th league victory of the 2019-20 campaign.

The reigning champions are currently third in the Premier League table, one point off second-placed Leicester City but 14 points behind leaders Liverpool, who also have a game in hand.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash.
