As Baines’s cross curled in, Victor Anichebe leapt with Vincent Kompany and the ball flew on, apparently destined for a goal-kick. But Seamus Coleman didn’t give up. Kolarov turned his back as Coleman angled the ball towards Cahill.Kompany had moved out, fearing Coleman might cut the ball back to Rodwell, who was lurking on the edge of the area. Cahill, unmarked and dangerous, had all the time he needed to meet Coleman’s clipped cross with a firm header past goalkeeper Joe Hart.Leighton Baines put Everton 2-0 up by half-time but Victor Anchibe was sent off on the hour.City pulled one back when Yaya Toure’s shot deflected in off Phil Jagielka, but Kolo Toure was red carded late on. Coleman, exhausted by a stunning performance, was replaced with 15 minutes left to a rousing reception from the travelling Everton fans.At the final whistle those fans enjoyed a rendition of ‘2-1 and we spent f*** all’.It seems David Moyes capture of Coleman is looking like the bargain of the decade.IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN COLEMAN V GIVEN, BUT SHAY ON BENCH AS SEAMUS SHINES was last modified: December 21st, 2010 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
