    • 90+4 Everton have beaten City again! Great performance from the Toffees to come from behind.
    • 90+3 Everton take it short, obviously, keeping it in the corner as Arteta shields it to win a throw in the end.
    • 90+2 Beckford on the right goes for a ball with Kompany, surely Kompany has fouled him and this could be a second yellow... Just a free-kick, no card. Huge let off.
    • 90+1 City have a free-kick on halfway that Hart pumps in... headed away. Milner crosses but Howard claims through a crowd.
    • 90' Three minutes added time being played.
    • 89' CITY SUB: Jo on for De Jong. Bit late for that, lar.
    • 88' Hacked into touch by Osman for a corner as Milner ran through.
    • 87' Beckford wins a throw off Milner with Everton hanging on.
    • 86' City are piling it on as Johnson, Milner and Lescott have a pop but it's out for another corner.
    • 85' High ball into the Everton box causes problems for Howard, half cleared and Milner shoots, huge deflection off Baines and Howard is stranded but just over!
    • 84' My bad, Zabaleta is off not Milner - so no real concerns there. Milner has switched to right-back.
    • 83' Meanwhile, Zabaleta has picked up a knock that he is trying to run off on the sidelines.
    • 82' I can't work out if that's negativity or stupidity - Mancini should have made a change when the first one went in, and it's taken him nine minutes to sort his act out from the second Everton goal. And now we have nine or 10 minutes with Johnson and Balotelli on the pitch.
    • 81' CITY SUB: And now he brings on Balotelli, Milner making way.
    • 79' And now he brings on Adam Johnson, Vieira making way.
    • 78' ALMOST THREE! Beckford flies in at the near post to meet a heavily deflected cross from Neville but Hart somehow keeps it out, point-blank!
    • 77' Taken short but then the cross is poor. Everton retain possession, all the way back to Howard.
    • 76' Neville buys a corner off Kolarov. City are all over the shop.
    • 75' Everton have a throw on the right. They're still doing all the attacking.
    • 74' Mancini is perplexed. He shouldn't be - Everton decided to take the game to City and City had no response.
    • 73' Two-footed but clean tackle from Cahill. Free-kick, no card.
    • 72' How did he beat Kompany in the air there? What a leap from Osman - who hurt himself in the landing.
    • 71' GOAL EVERTON! Osman with a superb flying header, the kind I never knew he had in him, and it flies into the top left! What a goal! Great cross from P-Nev.
    • 70' WHAT A MISS! Beckford is clearly offside but the flag stays down and he puts wide. Oh, thank cod for that - flag went up late. That would have broken his heart.
    • 69' All Everton now as Beckford and Cahill combine but, eventually, Hart claims.
    • 68' Panic in the City box as first Beckford thinks he is fouled in the box, then Cahill but nothing given!
    • 67' Zabelata is caught a bit late by Osman, who is booked.
    • 66' GOAL EVERTON! Distin with a header that Hart can't keep from the bottom left, super ball from Arteta.
    • 65' EVERTON: Cahill comes on and immediately wins a free-kick wide right...
    • 64' Curled in but Jagielka is fouled. Everton free-kick.
    • 63' Lovely backheel from Dzeko to release Zabaleta, who is tripped by Osman. No card just a chat.
    • 62' Everton on the break, Rodwell in space he sees Anichebe to the right but he gives it away. City counter and Dzeko is in after skinning Distin but he drills it just wide!
    • 61' Rodwell is booked for the challenge, as is Kompany for getting involved.
    • 60' It kicks off after De Jong is taken down by Rodwell! Shoving and wrestling and the ref needs to calm this down...
    • 59' Kolarov gets forward not but fires well wide from the edge of the box.
    • 58' Everton are in again but Beckford's cut-back is behind Rodwell and Milner is back to hack away!
    • 57' Silva is offside on the left as the match takes a breather.
    • 55' End to end this - Moyes going 4-4-2 has opened it right up. That could have been a penalty by the way - Zabaleta seemed to shove Baines as he tried to finish.
    • 54' Baines fires straight at Hart now! Beckford holding it up to play him in.
    • 53' This is a cracker already - Beckford, who came on for Hibbert at the break, fires just at Hart after twisting and turning into the box.
    • 52' Milner pokes well wide in the end from that Kolarov corner.
    • 51' DZEKO JUST WIDE! Free-kick from Kolarov on the left, curled in and the Bosnian attacks with a header but just beyond the top left. Corner awarded, Howard got a touch!
    • 51' GREAT SAVE HOWARD! On the counter Silva plays Toure in with a superb pass and the Ivorian shows pace and power to work himself into a one-on-one but Howard spreads himself to block. Way to hustle.
    • 50' Another corner won by Baines, Everton seeming to have realised that if City are weak anywhere it's full back.
    • 49' A succession of corners as Everton pile it on... Kolarov clears this one... Baines in but Zabaleta this time heads away.
    • 48' Everton have a free-kick 30 yards out... Taken short by Arteta to Baines who shoots low and it ricochets off the wall AND DROPS TO RODWELL but deflected inches wide with Hart beaten! Toure I think.
    • 47' City go back to Howard after keeping ball for a while. Down the other end Dzeko goes down but play on.
    • 46' The second half is underway at Goodison.
    • 45+1 Half-time and City lead through Toure's goal.
    • 45+1 One minute added time being played.
    • 45' Neville is harshly booked after a clash with Kolarov.
    • 44' Kolarov goes down in a heap after Toure's super backheel played him clean through! Excellent tackle from Jagielka the replay confirms.
    • 43' RODWELL HEADS WIDE! Superb cross from Hibbert on the right and an excellent leap, but he puts the header just past the top right!
    • 42' Lescott is penalised for a foul on Anichebe. The free-kick is cleared though, throw on the right.
    • 41' Great low ball by Silva from the left and Tour tries to slid into a finish but it spins off the side of his foot and well wide, Jagielka putting him off.
    • 40' Hibbert is forced to put behind for a corner under pressure from Silva.
    • 39' De Jong gives away a free-kick on Neville. Getting a bit scrappy now.
    • 38' Dzeko is left in a heap by Anichebe but no foul says the ref and the Everton striker helps the grinning Bosnian up.
    • 36' Osman is down after a challenge with Kolarov and then De Jong. Didn't look like he was caught, an awkward twist on his ankle it seems.
    • 35' Almost a great move as Kolarov puts in a low ball but hoofed away from Dzeko as he was set to finish.
    • 34' Hart puts it long and, after some pinball, it drops to Dzeko but his shot is blocked by Jagielka.
    • 33' Clever back header from Lescott this time back to the keeper Hart.
    • 32' City are in their stride now, knocking it about crisply and first to the tackle too.
    • 31' Everton fail to clear Kolarov's corner, the Serb gets it back on the left and feeds Dzeko and it opens up for him but he fires straight at Howard.
    • 30' Dzeko holds it up for Kolarov, who wins a corner off Osman. City in charge now.
    • 29' It matters not as Toure bags a beauty! Lovely skill by Silva on the right to flick the ball up, kill it dead and slide Toure in, and a rasping finish across Howard and into the top left.
    • 28' City should have scored again there as Milner found himself in acres of space on the right and - with Silva and Dzeko to aim at - he got his cut-back all wrong.
    • 28' Anichebe is furious after he goes shoulder to shoulder with Lescott, he thinks he was fouled but really that was nothing.
    • 27' There is what looks like an orange Sainsbury bag on the pitch. Play on as City come forward but Silva is crowded out, Neville clearing.
    • 26' Some head tennis on halfway sees City win the free-kick this time but Lescott dithers and is closed down, much the home fans' joy.
    • 25' Milner is given a final warning after a foul deep in the Everton half.
    • 24' Lescott heads the corner to touch on the Everton right. Baines and Hibbert exchange passes but the cross from Hibbert ends in a foul by Heitinga.
    • 23' Arteta it is, he shoots and it takes a big deflection off the wall to bobble wide. Corner.
    • 22' Everton have a freek-kick now, on the edge of the box, a touch to the left... Baines and Arteta over it... The distance favours Baines, the side Arteta...
    • 21' Good work from Neville now to win a corner on the left. Distin attacks but hooked clear by Kompany for a throw.
    • 20' Cool keeping from Hart to play the backpass simply to Lescott but he panics a bit and Everton have it back.
    • 19' Baines to swing this in from the right but, after some head tennis, City are able to clear.
    • 18' Corner to Everton now on the left, Osman to send far post but off the head of Heitinga and behind for another corner as it took a touch off a City player.
    • 17' Arteta thinks he was fouled by Milner, who then slides in on Baines to give away a free-kick.
    • 16' Distin gives it away to Milner but Baines recovers excellently and Everton come forward...
    • 15' Almost an excellent counter from City but Toure's ball wide for Silva is just beyond him. It was opening up centrally, should have taken it on.
    • 14' It's a nice bright day at Goodison and the pace of the game reflects this: slow and summery. Neither side really going all-out at the moment.
    • 13' Osman drags a low effort well wide of the far post, he had more time than he realised.
    • 12' That was some miss. Vieira can't believe it, and neither can Silva, who did all the hard work.
    • 11' WHAT A MISS BY VIEIRA! Again brilliant first touch from Silva on the left, this time to play it across Howard and to Vieira with the open goal, but he blasts it over.
    • 10' Arteta clips De Jong and City have a free-kick on the right. Taken short.
    • 9' A high punt lands for Silva on the left, magical first touch from him and he shifts it on to his left before drilling a wicked low shot across Howard and inches wide of the far post!
    • 7' A very low-key start to this match it has to be said.
    • 6' A bit of magic spray at the base of the spine for Toure and he seems okay.
    • 5' A City player is down, Yaya Toure I think after an awkward landing following a header.
    • 4' Everton field a couple of long balls aimed at Dzeko.
    • 3' A nice City move stalls when Kolarov's cross is too deep.
    • 2' Hart is called into action twice, coming to the edge of his ball to claim high ones into his box.
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 14:55 Despite not having two 10p pieces to rub together, Everton boss David Moyes claims he is not envious of Manchester City's massive wealth. Maybe he should be...
    • 14:50 Phil Dowd is the only Premier League referee to have given 100 or more yellow cards this season.
    • 14:45 City's last eight Premier League goals have been scored by eight different players.
    • 14:40 Everton manager David Moyes has won all three matches against Roberto Mancini - he also won his first three PL matches against Gary Megson, Gianfranco Zola and Harry Redknapp. The only previous manager he won his first four matches against was Megson who he won his first six PL matches against.
    • 14:35 Everton and Manchester City have met 155 times in the league. Everton have won 58, Manchester City 58 and 39 draws. They have met 27 times in the Premier League. Everton have won 14, Manchester City nine and four draws.
    • 14:30 My word, Roberto Mancini is a conservative coach. With the Champions League beckoning, out goes the mercurial magic of Adam Johnson and Mario Balotelli; in comes the honest endeavour of James Milner and Edin Dzeko.
    • 14:25 EVERTON: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Arteta, Heitinga, Neville, Osman, Rodwell, Anichebe... Subs: Mucha, Bilyaletdinov, Beckford, Cahill, Gueye, Coleman, Vellios... MAN CITY: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, De Jong, Vieira, Milner, Toure Yaya, Silva, Dzeko... Subs: Given, Wright-Phillips, Adam Johnson, Jo, Boyata, Balotelli, McGivern... Referee: Phil Dowd (Staffordshire)
    • 14:20 City can all but guarantee fourth place and Champions League qualification if they win today - defeat here would set the nerves jangling when they face rivals Tottenham in midweek.
    • 14:15 Welcome to LIVE coverage of Everton v Manchester City from Goodison Park!
