Roberto Martinez: Not happy with Jonathan Moss

The Toffees went ahead through Romelu Lukaku, before goals from Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero fired City ahead.

Then a big call came when Seamus Coleman was adjudged to have shoved Pablo Zabaleta in the box. Aguero took the penalty and the ball cannoned in off goalkeeper Tim Howard to seal the win - but Martinez was not happy.

"Today we started really bright, we wanted to score the first goal - it was important today but we couldn't keep the lead for long enough," Martinez said.

"You don't want to see red cards in games - there were eight yellow cards but I don't think it was that kind of game. It was a very open, fascinating game of football.

"But the game wasn't controlled at all by the referee."

And on the penalty he added: "If that is a penalty, it's an impossible game - it should never have been a penalty.

"I think that it was an emotional decision from the referee.

"He killed a very good game for both sides."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
