Manchester City suffered an evening of mixed fortunes at Eastlands last night. City faced Everton and had the opportunity to go top of the Premier League for the first time in 81 years.

However, City slumped to a surprise 2-1 defeat, falling behind to two quick goals from David Moyes’ side. At half time, City found themselves 2-0 down. Despite managing to pull one back in the second half, and seeing Everton lose Victor Anichebe to a second yellow card, the Eastlands outfit could not fight their way to a draw – and themselves lost Kolo Toure to a second yellow.

Roberto Mancini did have some good news for the City faithful though, as captain Carlos Tevez withdrew his transfer request and pledged his loyalty to the club. There had been strong rumours that Mancini would strip the Argentina striker of the captaincy, but the Italian worked hard to convince Tevez his future lay with City and the 26-year-old has performed a U-turn.
