Osman wants refs to protect Everton team-mate Fellaini

Osman said: "When you are as effective as he is, teams are going to find a way to stop you. That's up to him and us as a team to find ways around that," Osman said.

"I don't need to go into how the ref was. People are going to try to stop him playing and being effective for us.

"On other occasions we have been okay with that and found ways around that, playing in different parts of the field, but apart from the opening half-an-hour on Saturday, we couldn't really operate."
