Everton 1-0 Man City: Citizens Feel The Pressure As New-Boy Gibson Fires Toffees To Victory (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Everton 1-0 Manchester City – Premier League – 31st January 2012

Roberto Mancini’s nouveau riche Citizens just can’t seem to put any decent daylight between them and their Manchester rivals in the race for the title. Once again, City stumbled to a surprise defeat against a hard-working Everton side.

Former United midfielder Darron Gibson was the goal-hero for the Toffees, firing home on the hour-mark after a Leighton Baines corner. City did their best to respond, but sorely lacked the influence of their Ivorian midfield general, Yaya Toure.

French schemer Samir Nasri did hit the woodwork on a couple of occasions, but this definitely wasn’t one of City’s best performances.

With  new signing Nikica Jelavic paraded around Goodison at the break, and a fine win against the league-leaders under their belts, things are looking up for David Moyes’ men. As for City, the question remains; despite all their wealth, will their lack of experience in a title fight be their downfall?

Oh, and one Everton fan handcuffed himself to Joe Hart’s goal-post towards the end of the first-half, which caused a five-minute delay. No doubt, we’ll see more on this rather bizarre incident on Pies’ very soon.

    Best thing he’s done for United in his entire career. Good luck to Gibbo, hopefuly things will work out with Everton, but is it me or does he look like he’s turned 40 over night in that picture?
