Carlos Tevez's penalty saves Manchester City in 1-1 draw with Everton
01 December 2012 05:02
Carlos Tevez scored from the penalty spot to cancel out Marouane Fellaini's opener and salvage a 1-1 draw for Manchester City at home to Everton as they were denied a chance to go two points clear at the top of the Premier League.
City remain unbeaten in the league this season but the draw means neighbours Manchester United could sneak three points ahead depending on the result of their trip to Reading on Saturday evening, with Roberto Mancini's men currently on top on goal difference.
Influential Toffees midfielder Fellaini drew first blood for the visitors on the 33rd minute at the Etihad Stadium as he saw his initial headed effort from close range parried by City goalkeeper Joe Hart before bundling home the rebound. But Fellaini went from hero to villain 10 minutes later when referee Lee Probert pointed to the spot after he appeared to tug Edin Dzeko in the penalty box and Tevez made no mistake slotting home past Tim Howard down the middle.
