Key quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: “We’re not going to change our style of playing because of Everton. We will try to play as an offensive team, to create chances and to score the most amount of goals we can. We don’t think it will be easy because Everton have conceded goals recently. Every game is different."

Gael Clichy: “Everton is always a difficult place to go. Like Stoke, Everton were always a hard-working team, concentrating on set-pieces and you knew you were in for a tough 90 minutes.

“Now, they have great quality throughout the team as well so it’s not just a battle anymore, it’s a battle plus quality. At Goodison Park, with their fans behind them – some of the best in the country I believe – we’re in for a tough game on Merseyside and two hard games at the Etihad.”

Roberto Martinez: "“It is always important to make home advantage count. But in the same way you need to make the most of being at home, you need to be able to cope with playing away and not being affected by the home team’s support."

Out: (Everton): Hibbert, Oviedo, Browning, McCarthy
