Manchester City hope to start writing their next book beginning at Everton

After winning the FIFA Club World Cup and securing their fifth trophy of the calendar year Manchester City will be hoping to begin their next book with a win at Goodison Park over Everton. After victory in Saudi Arabia secured every available trophy for Manchester City under Pep Guardiola the City boss is keen to start over.

Tonight’s clash will see City look to kick on following last week’s success. They will also be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League. While the performances against Liverpool, Tottenham and Crystal Palace were good enough they ultimately fell short as the champions threw away late leads to come away with draws. City only sits 8 points behind current league leaders, Liverpool with two games in hand. It’s a familiar position for the treble winners based on what has happened in previous seasons.

Speaking with before tonight’s clash the City manager was proud of his side’s achievements but keen to start again. He said: “It’s nice, I have the feeling the job is really done. I thought about it when we won the Champions League but then Super Cup, we didn’t have it, Club World Cup, we didn’t have it, now we have everything. Now it’s (time) to go to the book shop to buy one and start to write again. This is what we have to do.”

Tonight’s trip to Goodison Park to face Everton will present a challenge within itself. Sean Dyche’s side has played well so far this season, especially at home. If it wasn’t for the 10-point deduction they’d comfortably sit 10th in the Premier League table.

But it’s challenges that Manchester City thrive on. There will be no better place to start a new book than at a tricky venue against an opponent who will be up for the occasion.
