Roberto Martinez has blasted the soft penalty the decision that condemned his side to defeat at Manchester City.

He said: “To say I was unhappy with the penalty decision is a bit of an understatement.

“I’m really disappointed with that action because although it’s clear contact, contact is allowed.

“I didn’t think it was a penalty at all. It will be interesting to see what Manuel Pellegrini thinks about it.

“It is a ball that is played into the 18 yard box and the defender is allowed to go and challenge it.”

Lee Carsley has given his opinion on the defeat to Manchester City in his Sunday ECHO column. The referee didn’t help, says Cars, but concedes the Blues weren’t at their best at the Etihad.

Lee writes: “We didn’t get a lot of help from the officials but I didn’t think we did enough to win the game and with 20 minutes to go there seemed to be a lot of tired Everton legs out there.

“That’s probably due to most of those lads having played in a large part of our recent matches with four games in the last 10 days.”

The referee CAN be crucial – but at least Eto’o is a leader and Barkley can change the tempo of a game. Here’s the four things we learned from the Blues’ 1-0 defeat at the Etihad yesterday.
