Four consecutive clean sheets for the Toffees at least indicates that Everton are robust at the back, although Ruzomberok, Stoke City and Hadjuk Split are hardly world-beaters.

Indeed, the fact that Ronald Koeman’s side played on Thursday night doesn’t aid their cause ahead of the runaround they are sure to be given at the hands of Manchester City on Monday night.

Last season, this fixture ended in a 1-1 scoreline although we saw two Stekelenburg penalty saves in that match as City threw the kitchen sink at their north-west rivals in what was to be several matches where Pep Guardiola tried to comprehend how his team didn’t win the game.

City have subsequently strengthened since then, with Kyle Walker and Danilo playing as wing-backs for the title favourites, with Fernandinho operating in a central midfield spot and then David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne getting forward in support of Aguero and Jesus.

The Citizens were in blistering form ahead of the new season and a 2-0 win at Brighton was canny enough, with this first home game a chance for Manchester City to lay down a marker in the same way that Manchester United did against West Ham last weekend.

Everton will hope that Michael Keane, Ashley Williams and either Phil Jagielka or Cuco Martina can operate successfully as part of a three-man defence, although Koeman surely can’t hope to hold out for ninety minutes and this is the sort of game where Wayne Rooney might turn into a luxury player for away matches.

Perhaps City will need to be patient but they have the attacking weaponry to get goals and averaged two per home game last season without Aguero and Jesus playing in tandem.
