Anders Limpar says he's in love with Everton defender John Stones

John Stones was in excellent form as Everton beat Manchester City 2-1 in the Capital One Cup.

Anders Limpar has professed his love for Everton defender John Stones on social media.

Limpar, who represented Everton during his playing days, was watching the Capital One Cup semi final yesterday evening and he was impressed by a trio of Toffees players.

Everton won the tie 2-1 at Goodison Park, and Romelu Lukaku, Stones and Muhamed Besic all drew praise from the Swede on Twitter.

Everton’s win over City was highly impressive, and they are now in a promising position as they look to book their spot at Wembley.

The Toffees took the lead in the first half, when Ramiro Funes Mori tapped in from close range.

They were pegged back when City equalised through Jesus Navas, but Roberto Martinez’s side responded immediately through Romelu Lukaku.

Everton then held on to their advantage, and they now have a lead to protect ahead of their visit to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the month.

The winner of Everton’s tie against City, will face either Liverpool or Stoke City in the League Cup final in February.
