Everton proved a thorn in City's side yet again with Darron Gibson's goal on the hour enough to give David Moyes' side a 1-0 win.

The Blues started brightly but couldn't breach a makeshift home defence during a frustrating 90 minutes on Merseyside and now lead the table on goal difference only from Manchester United.

This was never going to be a walk in the park for the Premier League leaders.
