Arteta Rocket Sinks Hull

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Everton made it six games unbeaten with a 2-0 victory over Hull City in the Tigers’ first Premier League visit to Goodison in 2009.

Newly-promoted Hull were enjoying life in the top-flight having made a promising start, but would later go into freefall and only narrowly avoid the drop.

A 2-2 draw at the KC Stadium earlier in the campaign showcased the merits of Phil Brown's side, but Everton were in no mood for sharing the points in the reverse fixture.

Ahead of kick-off on 10 January, the Toffees sat sixth in the table, five points above Hull with 20 games played apiece.

But by half-time, that gap had widened as Everton recorded only their third home victory of 2008/09.

Marouane Fellaini nodded home a trademark Leighton Baines cross on 18 minutes before Mikel Arteta sent a free-kick roaring into the back of Boas Myhill's net moments before the interval.

The result cemented the Blues' place in the top six and another clean sheet made it six fixtures without conceding.
