Ukraine pair Oleksandr Zinchenko and Vitaly Mykolenko shared a touching moment on Saturday, as they shared an embrace in the build-up to the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Everton.
We are underway!
Pep Guardiola’s side suddenly have some more pressure on them as they find themselves well and truly in a Premier League title race.
For much of the season it has seemed like Man City might run away with it at the top of the table, but a recent defeat to Tottenham has got Liverpool right back in the hunt. The Reds trail City by just three points.
With Jurgen Klopp’s side in Carabao Cup final action this weekend, City have the chance to pull away slightly again with victory at Goodison Park this evening.
Everton have showed promising signs under Frank Lampard, particularly at home to Leeds, but there have also been defeats on the road against Newcastle and Southampton.
The Toffees are 17th in the table so cannot afford to keep picking up defeats, but their season is unlikely to be defined by what they manage against City.
