It was great getting back to Goodison after a couple of months rest. All Evertonians were raring to go and the atmosphere was electric. Blue, blue, electric blue. As I got to my seat to my seat the crowd were introduced to Kevin Mirallas . Welcome to heaven Kevin.
Jags and Sylvain got the nod in the middle of the back four. Hibbo and Bainsey were the full backs. In the middle of the park Moyesy went with Gibbo and Phil with Ossie and Peanuts on the flanks. And up front Felli and Jela.
Everton were on the front foot from the start. We were up for it big time. In saying that United were putting about also
It was Felli who had our first effort and he done brilliantly to create the chance himself. It was from a Bainsey throw in that he beat Valencia and Carrick down the left hand side. He burst into the box but the angle got acute but he still managed to hit the post.
Everton were playing some great stuff. Great passing play involving Jela and Ossie ended with Peanuts having a goal bound shot saved by the very strange looking De Gea.
Everton were on top creating good chances and it was Felli at the heart of most things. He was causing mayhem for the United defence.
United first effort on goal was a free kick from a lad who used to play for us, but Tim Howard was up to the task.
Peanuts had a header tipped over the bar from the corner by De Gea. It really was impressive stuff from the Blues. And you have to say it was De Gea that was keeping United in the game.
Felli created another chance, this time for Ossie. The big man headed the ball into Ossie who turned and hit a volley on its way but peacock head saved again.
The last effort of the half was a brilliantly taken free kick by Bainsey but once again his goal bound effort was saved by the ugly one.
It was a great first 45 from the blues, the only thing missing was an Everton goal

Everton started the second half the way they finished the first, on top. It was again Felli who was causing the problems. He headed down for Ossie to lash a volley against the bar with De Gea beaten. It wasn't going to be one of those nights was it?
No it wasn't. Ten minutes later we got the goal we deserved. And who else was going to get it but Marouane Fellaini. It was a great Gibbo corner that was flung over and a towering Felli header ended up into the bottom of the net.
Oh my days the Old Lady erupted. The goal was everything we needed and deserved.
United came at us for the first time in the game. The last 20 minutes were hard to watch at times, but it was a night for heros and Everton had them all over the park. Jags and Sylvain died for the cause.
There was a heart in the mouth job when somehow Jags blocked an effort off the goal line. Well done Jags. We were under the cosh when Seamus Coleman came on for the tiring Leon Osman after 80 mintes and then Jela who had run himself into the ground came off for Nace making his Premiership debut
Felli came off also to run the clock down. Johnny replaced him. Everton managed to see it out to complete a superb victory against the multi millions of United.
Felli was incredible from start to finish. He was just unbelievable. Without doubt his best performance in an Everton shirt. He was the stand out performance but There m
I'm trying not to get too excited about this performance from Everton but I just can't help it. We gonna win the League and now you're gonna believe us.
