Former Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson boosted his old club's title chances by firing Everton to a stunning 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Gibson lashed home his first goal since quitting Old Trafford earlier this month as the Barclays Premier League leaders slipped up at Goodison Park.

The visitors hit the bar in the first half through Samir Nasri but Everton, who earlier saw a Denis Stracqualursi effort cleared off the line, again proved stubborn opposition for City.
