Fellaini on target as Everton hinder Manchester City again

 
 

MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) - Marouane Fellaini played a decisive role at both ends of the pitch as Everton held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Fellaini, Everton's outstanding player of the season, put Everton ahead with his eighth goal of the campaign on a ground at which his side had won on four of their previous five visits.

However, it was also Fellaini's tug on Edin Dzeko's shirt at a corner that led referee Lee Probert to award the penalty from which Carlos Tevez equalised.

The point took City top of the table ahead of Manchester United's late game at Reading.
