Man City 0-1 Everton Highlights
Tim Cahill’s winner deep into injury time gave Everton a dramatic victory against Manchester City at Eastlands.
Cahill rose to meet Leon Osman’s corner to head past City’s Joe Hart as the game looked certain to end in deadlock.
Mikel Arteta struck the bar with a free-kick early on and Shaun Wright-Phillips hit the woodwork for City.
Marouane Fellaini forced a fine save from Hart, while Everton’s Tim Howard did well to deny Robinho and Stephen Ireland to set up the late win.
Everton boss David Moyes was ecstatic at the final whistle, especially after seeing his own side fall victim to an injury-time strike against Aston Villa last Saturday.
City, in contrast, were jeered off by their own fans, unhappy that they had been unable to break down an injury-hit Everton side.
Everton’s striking resources were wiped out completely when Victor Anichebe was ruled out with a back injury – forcing Cahill to play as an emergency attacker.
It did not stop Moyes’ side playing a full part in a highly entertaining first 45 minutes, which brought plenty of opportunities for both sides.
