Everton 2-1 Sunderland – Premier League – 10th November 2012
The afro-tastic Marouane Fellaini was once again the star man for Everton, after the Belgian midfielder inspired the Toffees to a comeback win against Sunderland.
The Black Cats had taken the lead on half-time, courtesy of ex-Citizen Adam Johnson with his first goal for his new side. And Martin O’Neill’s men could have gone further ahead, only to miss a number of decent chances.
However, after the break the home side pushed for a goal and it eventually came when Fellaini fired home from a pass by sub Steven Naismith. Then, just three minutes later, Everton were ahead after a magnificent flick from Fellaini set up Nikica Jelavic, who curled home the winner.
The result sees David Moyes’ men go fourth while Sunderland continue to hover perilously close to the drop-zone
