Everton legend Peter Reid hails performance of Muhamed Besic v Manchester City on Twitter

The Bosnian was again in top form for Everton against City.

Muhamed Besic has recently been putting in some fantastic performances for Everton after overcoming the injury troubles that plagued him early in the season.

The Bosnian international has been in fantastic form, with Manchester City the main recipient of his tremendous form.

He was excellent in the Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg last week and again last night he was covering every blade of grass as City struggled to defeat Everton despite a dominant performance.

In the end the game ended 0-0 and Everton will be pleased with such a hard fought point - with Besic again key.

It was not a performance that went unnoticed for one of Everton's greatest ever central midfielders.

Peter Reid tweeted last night:

The pair actually share certain characteristics when it comes to their playing styles and that might be one reason why Reid is such a fan.

Reid won the FA Cup, First Division and European Cup Winners' Cup during his time as a player with Everton - their last great silverware era.

This current Everton crop have the raw potential to go on and pick up some silverware themselves.

Hopefully Besic will play a massive part in that.
