Everton is going to welcome the team of Manchester City at Goodison Park in the first semifinal match of the tournament Capital One Cup. Here is our soccer prediction.
Everton reached the semi-finals of the tournament after a 2:0 success as a guest over Middlesbrough. In the Premier League, they have difficulties and the 11th place in the standings at the time indicates that this tournament looks like a good chance for ranking in European tournaments next year. Against Manchester City, Roberto Martinez can count on Phil Dzagielka. The central defender of Everton is recovering from an injury and will replace Ramiro Murray in the starting lineup of Everton. Because of various traumas, the other players, who will miss the derby are Thys Browning, James Mccarthy, Tony Hibbert, Steven Pienaar and Bryan Oviedo. Roberto Martinez will bet of Gerard Delofeu and Kevin Miralas, and as the sole striker, we will see Romelu Lukaku.
Manchester City qualified for the derby after an easy success over Hull City with 4:1 at home. In the Premier League, the Citizens have been quite volatile. This is also due to the many problems that Manuel Pellegrini has with the team. Against Everton, the experienced specialist again won`t be able to rely on the captain - Vincent Kompany, who has an injury, but because of injuries we won`t see also Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri. After a long festive cycle, Manuel Pellegrini will make quite a few changes in the team. At the Goodison Park, in the team of Citizens will see players who rarely begin as holders, as Zabaleta, Caballero, Fabian Delf, Jesus Navas, Fernando and Wilfred Bonnie. Two stars of Manchester City - Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure are not going to play today.
Both teams traditionally make effective matches between themselves. Despite the changes that we see in the boards of Everton and Manchester City, the expectations of experts are many hits tonight.
