Manchester City haven’t been able to call themselves Premier League leaders in nearly two months’ time — Dec. 15, for one night only, to be exact — but the defending champions have the opportunity to completely erase what was at two different times a seven-point deficit to Liverpool with a win away to Everton on Wednesday. (Watch live at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Though it might only be temporary — until Liverpool are once again level on games played — Pep Guardiola‘s side would apply even more pressure than the Reds have felt in recent outings by reclaiming the top spot.
Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for something of a favor from the blue half of Merseyside, though the likelihood of such an upset seems unlikely with the Toffees having won just three of their last 12 games in the PL.
