This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Manchester City and Everton at 15:00 on Monday 1st January 2007 in the Premiership.
Everton face a trip to Manchester City at City of Manchester Stadium on Monday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Toffees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 44 and win only 15 of the 77 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2005, with Man City running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a Premiership match.
