Evertonian Grant Bell was crowned the FIFA 14 king at Liverpool's Bierkeller on Wednesday as hundreds of supporters turned out to take part in a special fan versus player tournament.
 
The loyal Blues in attendance got the chance to see first-team stars James McCarthy, John Stones, Seamus Coleman and Ross Barkley compete in a knockout battle of the EA SPORTS video game, with the latter pair progressing to the final.

And it was the younger of the duo, Barkley, who cruised to a 3-1 victory, earning the right to tackle Bell, the victor of an earlier tournament between as many as 64 fans.
 
However, that was where Barkley's good luck ran out as the 19-year-old crashed to a penalty shootout defeat, following a 2-2 draw in which he had produced the night's standout moment by notching a goal with his own in-game alter ego.
