Blackburn 0-0 Everton Highlights
Everton had to settle for a point after dominating an eventful clash against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
The visitors were furious as Andrew Johnson’s late strike was ruled out by a belated offside flag after James Vaughan robbed keeper Brad Friedel. Everton were in control, with Manuel Fernandes denied by Friedel and also hitting an upright with a free-kick. Blackburn’s David Bentley twice tested keeper Tim Howard and Roque Santa Cruz missed a glorious chance late on. Everton were boosted by the return of Tim Cahill after suspension and Leon Osman after injury – and David Moyes’s side took charge in the first 45 minutes. David Dunn was booked for a wild challenge on Mikel Arteta after 21 minutes, and then somehow escaped a red card when he deliberately handled right infront of referee Alan Wiley. Wiley awarded a free-kick but then, to general amazement, took no further action against the Blackburn midfield man.
