Everton midfielder Leon Osman was proud of his wonder goal in victory over Manchester City.

The midfielder also hopes Saturday's expert defeat of Roberto Mancini's champions can be the springboard to propel the Toffees back into Europe.

Osman told evertonfc.com: "Joe [Hart] is a fantastic keeper and to beat him from that range, I can't ask for more. I'm delighted.

"Maybe it bobbled a little bit as I hit it but it went in the back of the net and it gave us the goal we needed to go on and win the match."
