Manchester City must not give Wayne Rooney time to think when they host Everton, according to midfielder Fernandinho.

The Iceland global completed his hugely anticipated move to The Toffees from Swansea City last week for a club-record fee of around £45million, and could go straight into the visiting side for Monday night's mouth-watering clash.

Manchester City vs Everton: Manchester City is ready to take on Everton in the English Premier League today.

"Everything will be quicker, less speculation".

Everton opened their league campaign with a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Goodison Park.

Both City manager Pep Guardiola and his Everton counterpart Ronald Koeman played for Barcelona, with Guardiola, a Catalonia native, going on to become the most successful manager in the club's history. By considering the Premier League entrance, both teams picked up with some impressive and they also like trying the same in future games of this tournament. In terms of results, you never got good results when you play the last game on a Monday.

The managers and the clubs will work quicker and not wait for the last second. But I expect a good game and to win, of course. "I don't like that, but it is what it is", he said.

"I'm considering the opponent like Everton will be tough".

Long time absentees Ross Barkley, who suffered a hamstring injury, and James McCarthy (knee) remain sidelined while Sandro Ramirez can make his appearance against City. "So it's a point where we can win games in the last minutes".

"Even the goal he scored for Everton at the weekend against Stoke, the way he recognises that he needs to get in the box, marks him out". But it was the past.
