Fernandinho looked to have secured all three points for Manuel Pellegrini’s men when he nodded in a deflected David Silva shot but Steven Naismith swiftly equalised

Steven Naismith’s late equaliser ensured that Manchester City fell two points behind Chelsea in the Premier League title race after being held by Everton at Goodison Park.

City struggled to find a clinical finish to their approach play in a goalless first half but looked to have secured all three points when Fernandinho nodded in David Silva’s deflected shot on 74 minutes.

Their lead was swiftly erased, however, as Naismith headed in a pinpoint Leighton Baines free-kick four minutes later to secure the spirited hosts a share of the spoils.
