Everton skipper Neville: Saha opener came too early

Everton skipper Phil Neville admits going ahead inside the first minute worked against them in yesterday's FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea.

Louis Saha had put Everton ahead with the quickest goal in Wembley FA Cup final history after 25 seconds but, in the end, Neville felt it worked against his team.

"The early goal was funny - we took our foot off the gas," he said. "We had a great chance with Saha's header at 1-1 but the second goal was a killer."
