10-Man Everton Thrash Man City As Liverpool Fall 3-1 Away To Southampton


Everton manager, David Moyes celebrated 11 years in charge of the Toffees as his 10-man side all but put the nail to the coffin of Manchester City’s already-slim title hopes.

The hosts had a Kevin Mirallas goal disallowed before Leon Osman smashed home a superb 30-yard curling effort.

City failed to produce a stellar performance despite Steven Pienaar’s dismissal following a booking for a studs-up tackle on the hour.

The visitors had a strong penalty claim turned down late on but Everton sealed the win through Nikica Jelavic’s shot.

Substitute Jelavic’s superb breakaway injury-time effort rounded off a perfect afternoon and fully deserved win for the home side and manager Moyes following a difficult week.
