That game saw Romelu Lukaku continue his fine start to life in Liverpool as the on-loan striker scored his 2nd and 3rd goals in a blue shirt. The powerful striker seems to have struck up useful partnership with Ross Barkley.

The young midfielder scored Everton’s other goal on the night, his first at Goodison Park with MNF pundit Jaime Carragher comparing the duo’s understanding to that of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

While it is very early days to be drawing such comparisons, the pair appear to have developed a real understanding although they will face their toughest test to date when they take on a Manchester City side that has yet to drop a point on their home turf in the league.

They will have to do so without Gareth Barry with the midfielder ineligible to face his parent club on Saturday while Darron Gibson and Kevin Mirallas are doubts. Steve Pienaar is definitely out.

City were handed a footballing lesson midweek when they went down 3-1 at home to Bayern Munich, with the European Champion’s providing a master-class in possession football.

Joe Hart was at fault for two of the Bayern goals in the 3-1 defeat and he could pay the price for his inconsistent display with Costel Pantilimon tipped to make his Premier League debut.

David Silva meanwhile is set to play his first league game since August after returning from a thigh injury.

Everton are unbeaten in their last three games against City, winning two of the games and coming away with a point from their last trip to Manchester. In fact the Blues are something of a bogey team for City with the big spenders only managing three wins in their last 15 clashes.
