Top dogs

Everton 1 - 0 Zenit (Эвертон 1 - 0 Зенит Санкт-Петербург)

Top of our group with a game to spare...not too shoddy

It wasn't a classic but that's a job well done. Zenit were a good side, they should never have been down to 10-men (even I saw that from the very back of the upper Gwladys). They close down everything but ultimately the extra man told and an up-and-down Everton won out.

McFadden took some stick for his performance but to my mind he was just trying too hard...he was always showing for the ball, his decision making just screamed of a player who was desperate to make somethnig happen. Looked gutted to be going off when subbed but I have it on good authority that he was celebrating like a proper blue when the goal went in.
