The game was fairly uneventful until the Spaniard’s 25-yard drilled shot deceived goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen and left him unable to keep out the strike.
Who would you prefer alongside Yerry Mina?
Sam Allardyce’s side would have considered themselves unlucky to be behind after chances from Ivan Campo and the late Gary Speed, but they were unable to convert any of their opportunities.

Still one of the best goals I’ve seen at Goodison. Arteta a class act in that playmaking role from the side https://t.co/Vw2ycHPDR5

He won that game single-handed. Goalie got sent off early doors if I remember correctly?
