Everton fullback Baines never felt threatened by Man City attack

Everton fullback Leighton Baines felt they had the measure of Manchester City's much-vaunted attack for their 1-1 draw.

An aspect of the performance that pleased Baines was how the Toffees nullified City's attacking threat.

The 27-year-old said: "That's the pleasing thing. The majority of the play was in front of us.

"I thought the midfield lads worked tirelessly for us and did a great job defensively. That kept them off our backs a bit.

"When they eventually did get through to us at the back Jags (Phil Jagielka) and Sylvain (Distin) stood up to them. I thought we did well."
