City fell at the semi-final stage to eventual winners Arsenal last season and have waltzed through their three FA Cup fixtures this term to reach the last eight.

Guardiola also witnessed his troops edge Everton 3-1 in the Premier League back in February – a game that saw the Toffees restricted to just three shots all afternoon.

And Everton themselves are on something of a blip of late, having lost to Chelsea and Burnley in their previous two outings.

The Merseysiders have reached just two FA Cup semi-finals since losing the 2009 final 2-1 to Chelsea. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Everton v Man City on TV and online.

Our prediction: Everton v Man City

Facing a Manchester City side ravaged by injuries would be tough but Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has the unenviable task of coming up against a fully-fit Guardiola unit.

And it’s hard to see how Everton can match City’s intensity over 90 minutes and come away with a win here. The Toffees were limited to just a handful of shots when these sides last met and realistically City could have scored more than the three bagged at Goodison that day.

Don’t be surprised if the visitors go ahead early in this encounter and suffocate Everton.

Our prediction: Everton 0-3 Man City (15/2 at bet365)
