Coleman relieved by win over City

17 March 2013 07:41

Seamus Coleman says Everton repaid their fans for the FA Cup loss to Wigan by beating Manchester City 2-0 on Saturday.

Goals from Leon Osman and Nikica Jelavic condemned Roberto Mancini's side to their fourth consecutive defeat in matches at Goodison Park, despite the hosts losing midfielder Steven Pienaar to a red card in the second half.

And Coleman said the win achieved the team's aim of repaying their supporters after Everton were surprisingly dumped out of the FA Cup quarter-finals by Wigan.

"It was utterly disappointing to go out (of the FA Cup)," Coleman told Sky Sports.

"We went out there today and tried to repay the fans and I think we did that.

"That was what we came to do. Winning games is what we're about. It wasn't the Everton team last week, we just didn't turn up."

Everton took the lead thanks to a 30-yard strike from stand-in captain Osman, and the 31-year-old expressed his delight with his side's victory, although he admitted it was difficult to grind out a result against the Premier League champions.

"Joe (Hart) is a fantastic keeper, to beat him from that range, I'm delighted," Osman said.

"It went in the back of the net and it gave us the goal we needed to try and win the match.

"Difficult to play with 10 against any team, let alone the champions. But we kept them at bay and I don't think they had many chances.

"It's what we've got to concentrate on. We're trying to get up as high as we can."
