Manchester City are hoping Phil Foden will be fit to play as they host Everton this weekend, looking to keep pace at the top of the Premier League table.

Pep Guardiola ’s side comfortably beat Man United before the international break to move into second place, with just one defeat to their name since the opening day of the campaign.

Everton are struggling for consistency this term and after a good start to the campaign, they have recently gone five without a win and have dropped into the bottom half of the table.
