Match Summary

Everton scored on their first attack, a great cross from Pienaar headed in by Fellaini but strangely ruled out for offside.
Mucha had to make a good save. Keith Southern then left the field. Osbourne got another one on target for Blackpool that forced another fine save from Jan Mucha.

Both sides rang the changes at the break, Howard, Osman and Anichebe coming on for Everton.

Blackpool had been pressing the blues all game and they hot there just rewards on 64 mins whe a simple ball in from a corner was met with a free header by Sylvestre that easily beat Howard in the Everton goal.

It didn't get any better as more of David Moyes's squad were rolled out, and Blackpool's kids scored a soft second goal to wrap things up, despite Anichebe hitting the bar. Not exactly inspiring stuff from the Blues, who played as if they'd spent the last week on the beach instead of training hard for the new season.
