BBC Sport - Everton 1-1 Man City: Roberto Martinez remains upbeat

Everton have platform - Martinez

Everton boss Roberto Martinez says his team's 1-1 draw at home to Manchester City provide a "platform" to build on for the second half of the season.

The visitors took the lead at Goodison Park when David Silva's deflected shot was glanced in by Fernandinho, but the Toffees equalised when Steven Naismith headed in a Leighton Baines free-kick.

Leighton Baines recorded his 45th Premier League assist, more than any other defender in the competition's history. Graeme Le Saux is second with 44.
