Johnny On The Spot: City have only themselves to blame for losing a golden opportunity to get crucial points on the board. In -7c temperatures, The Blues start was unbelievably sluggish and the midfield was conceded to the usual uber-physical Everton side who could not believe the space they were being afforded. As for City's appalling defending during an insane opening 20 minutes, the less said the better...The making of great sides is their ability to fight back and City would have pulled off an amazing turnaround were it not for an erratic referee, pisspoor linesmen and an exceptional performance from ex rag Tim Howard who brilliantly repelled a barrage of sizzling City shots. However, a furious Roberto Mancini will not accept that this was just a bad night at the office. It was an unbelievable game.

Got to HAND it to Everton and their three keepers. How on earth we got nothing from that game is beyond me.

Can't believe we got nothing out of that. Shocking. Even Sky were on our side about the handballs, what was Walton playing at, he had a clear view of them and two of them were blatent, though two were very arguable and can be forgiven for not being given. As soon as Balotelli's chip hit the post I knew the 2nd goal wouldn't come.

highlights how important De Jong is in my opinion to us as a defensive unit. schoolboy mistakes for the two goals conceded and gave us a mountain to climb. good thing about christmas is games come quick and fast to try and get back on track and at least the Tevez saga is over now

Yeah the defence suddenly goes from Champions League class to Sunday League class when De Jong isn't offering them insurance in front of them.

I counted 8 hand balls from Everton tonight, two of which were in the box, and one of which was as blatant a penalty as you'll ever see. Not one of them got punished by Peter "Toffee-nose" Walton. Funny that. We can't blame the ref for our defense switching off though, and once Everton had the lead they parked the bus, fouled and wasted time (are your shoes clean yet Tim Howard?). Still, with the number of chances we had we could and should have won this game. Well done Everton, but remember - you're still 5 points from the drop, we're 3 points from the top. Know where I'd rather be.

2 from the top actually but the rags have two games in hand. But I'm not sure about others, I never expected to mount a title challenge and am surprised we are this high up, tbh, our squad has gelled quicker than I expected with a couple of exceptions.

Incredible scenes at the end from an Everton perspective. The players and fans celebrated like they'd won the cup!

Stu don't compare your defence to Champs league, try Championship. Give Tevez another 40m bonus to shut up til Feb or June, tacky and he didn't score last night in a game I am estatic you lost. Buy Tim Cahill for 40m and that would be a good piece of business.
