Manchester City Vs. Everton Live, 2011 Premier League: Halftime, Organized Toffees Keep It Scoreless

Everton and Manchester City haven't been able to manage a goal between them in the first 45 minutes of their match at the Ethiad Stadium, but it's still been a fairly entertaining game. There actually haven't been any true clear-cut goal scoring chances, but there's something just a little bit delightful about the way Everton are defending against a world class City side. David Moyes has set his team up brilliantly, and they're doing well to keep it comfortably 0-0.

The central midfield trio of Marouane Fellaini, Phil Neville and Jack Rodwell has done a great job at taking away space for City to create anything in the middle. They've done a decent job of keeping their width and getting some crosses in, but Everton are defending well. Tim Cahill is also doing a good job of coming back and working on defense from his striker position. Basically, Everton are playing for 0-0 and doing it well.

Roberto Mancini has yet to take a point off of David Moyes in their meetings in the Premier League, but it feels like Moyes will be very content with a draw in this fixture.
