Everton vs Man City – Cahill to return to scoring ways

| 07.05.2011

Tim Cahill may not have scored in his nine Everton appearances in 2011, but 7/4 may represent decent value that he ends this barren streak at Goodison Park against Manchester City with a goal inside the 90 minutes.

First Goalscorer

Cahill’s last Everton goal came in a 2-1 win at Manchester City in December and he has proved a thorn in the side of the Citizens on a regular basis in their latest meetings.

The Australian has scored the opening goal in three of the last four games that he has started against Manchester City and is 6/1 to break the deadlock again.

Cahill’s chances of adding his name to the scoresheet are also enhanced by the fact that Everton have only failed to score once in their last 14 Premier League games with Manchester City.

Yaya Toure is a danger on the counter attack and from set pieces for Manchester City and therefore, he may be overpriced to grab the opener at 9/1.

Match Odds

Everton have been by far the dominant force in their latest meetings with Manchester City and this is not the only reason why it is a surprise that they are the outsiders at 9/5 in the Premier League odds to claim victory.

The Toffees have triumphed in six of their last seven showdowns with Manchester City and are also unbeaten in their last nine Premier League games this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester City may have virtually assured their finish in the top four with back-to-back Premier League wins, but their away form leaves a little to be desired.

Roberto Mancini’s team have only won one of their last seven on the road and look short at 6/4 to claim victory all things considered.

A £30 stake on the scorecast of Everton beating Manchester City 2-1 and Cahill scoring first would return £1350. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
