"Alvaro Negredo has scored no goals in 14 appearances since returning from injury, after bagging 23 in 33 beforehand (all comps)."

Under 2.5 goals is 2.56/4.

Everton have won nine of their last 13 Barclays Premier League meetings with Manchester City (D1 L3). They are 5.14/1 to win.

Roberto Martinez has lost eight of his nine Premier League encounters with Man City (D1). City are 1.768/11 to win.

Yaya Toure needs one more goal to become only the second central midfielder to score 20+ goals in a PL season (after Lampard with 22 in 2009-10). Toure is likely to be priced at 3.211/5 to score.
