The fireworks were early, and controversy was in the house as well.
Cleverley collected the last pass of a neat bit of Everton possession, and cut neatly to give the Toffees the lead with a left-footed shot in the 7th minute.
But minutes later, Everton defender Matt Pennington was shoved aside by Callum Wilson on the left side. No call came, and Pennington stopped to remonstrate for a second as Wilson shouldered the ball forward. The move ended with Pugh beating Howard, and it was 1-1.
