Phil Jagielka reserves judgement on Everton boss Sam Allardyce

We've got to go out and get our game plan in place and master that throughout the 90 minutes to get a result against a team that's riding high.

"It's a big challenge for us and one we should really look forward to on the basis that we're coming off back-to-back wins and we have a good home record".

Guardiola said Sergio Aguero, who missed Argentina's two friendlies during the global break with a knee injury, was doing better but suggested he was unlikely to feature against Everton. "So go and do your very best and see if that's good enough on the day".

"My decisions (are made) to beat Everton, not thinking about Liverpool".

Stones left Everton for City in 2016 in a 47.5 million-pound ($67 million) move and Guardiola's comments suggest he should be fit to face Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield on Wednesday.

Sam Allardyce - one called "The" Big Sam by Guardiola - is in charge of the ambitious Merseyside club now, which has won consecutive league games for just the second time this season after an early season flirtation with the drop zone.

"It's a massive game for us to go out and show what we've got". He has recovered from the blow that forced him off during England's friendly against Italy, but must sit out due to concussion protocols. Sergio Aguero may return after a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Wayne Rooney also has yet to net in the Premier League this year, but he was on target the last time these two teams played.

Everton have won six of their last nine home games against Man City in all competitions (D1 L2), winning 4-0 last season under Ronald Koeman.

Defeats to Wigan and Basel in the FA Cup and Champions League have marred their unbeaten stretch in every competition, but nobody has been able to hold a candle to the free-scoring north west team in the Premier League this term.

Manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Stones picked up a head injury during England's 1-1 friendly draw with Italy.

This is the ideal game for Sam Allardyce.

"I know people have gone on about him conceding goals for Everton this season but that's not the stat you look at as a goalkeeper, you look at the sort of saves he makes. he's always there when needed". I'd be shocked if Everton got anything out of this game.
