Man City lose at home to Everton - drift out of title race

Manchester City have lost ground in the English Premier League title race after a 2-1 defeat to Everton at Eastlands on Monday night.

Man City had a chance to sit top of the table at Christmas, but the home loss means that this honour goes to Manchester United instead, who are 5/4 favourites to lift the trophy in May.

Manchester City started slowly and found themselves 2-0 down inside 20 minutes with Cahill and Baines both scoring for Everton.

Although City dominated the game, with 25 shots to 4, the home side could only pull one goal back in the second-half - via a Jagielka deflection for an own-goal - and Everton hung on to win despite being down to 10 men.
