Everton secured a 2-1 win over Manchester City in their semi-final first-leg tie on Wednesday evening, having them an advantage heading into the second leg.
Ramiro Funes Mori netted the opening goal in first half injury time, capitalising on a rebound from a Ross Barkley shot to place the ball past Willy Caballero.
Everton took advantage of a Manchester City performance which was calamitous at times, with Yaya Toure completely off form, and the centre-back partnership of Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala broken up at half time to thrown Martin Demichelis into the fray.
It was another performance which made people question the real strength of City’s side, and Everton will head into the second leg knowing that they have a real chance to make the League Cup Final.
Following the game, three of the successful Everton team took to Twitter to react to the amazing performance against City.
Top performance from the lads, the fans were brilliant aswell. Some atmosphere that.— Ross Barkley (@RBarkley20) January 6, 2016
