I’d have loved to play this game in St Petersburg but instead it was in Liverpool. I’d had a good chat and a drink with some Zenit fans on the train but said goodbye to them at Lime St so I could go to Maharaja, the Keralan restaurant I really like. I had a dosa and a cabbage thoran, just like last time!
Result: Everton 1 Zenit 0 Man of the Match: Tim Cahill
Verdict: Lucky Maharaja
