Everton fans react to Muhamed Besic's performance against Manchester City on Twitter

Besic impressed in the heart of Everton's midfield in last night's win over Manchester City in the League Cup.

Everton put themselves in a good position to make it to the League Cup final after a 2-1 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their tie at Goodison Park last night.

Ramiro Funes Mori opened the scoring on the stroke of half time for the hosts after tight opening exchanges which saw both sides have their moments.

Jesus Navas came off the bench to equalise in the final quarter of the game but Romelu Lukaku got on to the end of a delicious Gareth Barry delivery only a few minutes later to give Roberto Martinez's side the advantage going to the Etihad Stadium in three weeks' time.

At the heart of the game for the Toffees was Muhamed Besic. Having made an impact in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham at the weekend from the bench, he was given the chance to start at Goodison Park and was a huge presence in the middle of the park.

He managed to keep his opponents quiet - in particular Yaya Toure - while his ability to break up the play and drive seemed to spur his side on. As a result, if Twitter is anything to go by, Everton fans were impressed with his performance.
