Rarely tested beyond taking a difficult first-half cross.
Kept the threatening Sinclair quiet and showed attacking endeavour throughout.
Looked bright and clever but saw his night cut short by an injury with only half an hour on the clock.
Troubled little by Graham aerially.
Showed both sides of his game well with solidity in defence and a couple of forward bursts which got the crowd on their feet.
A constant attacking threat on the left and provided numerous crosses which merited some better finishing.
Kept the ball moving and provided a midfield anchor for Everton to build on.
Everton's best attacking outlet, perhaps best when enjoying a stint on the right. His pace and trickery often create gaps but he regularly finds little support around him. Provided a great cross for the opener.
Showed great passing range throughout and involved himself in several clever exchanges to get the Toffees moving.
A bundle of energy and clever movement throughout. Leapt brilliantly to take his goal.
Not as involved as usual due to the concentration of attack down the wings but ran well and created space.
Made a string of great saves but was powerless to stop the opener.
Guilty of going to sleep at the corner from which the Swans conceded.
Forced off with an injury after a desperate goalmouth scramble. Had looked comfortable up until then.
Worked tirelessly to keep the game goalless before the whole backline were guilty of a lapse in concentration for the opener.
Provided great solidity in the midfield and showed nous to become an extra man in defence when necessary. Substituted at half time due to injury.
Beaten on numerous occasions by both Drenthe and Gueye.
Failed to put a stamp on the game as a man who is usually the Swans biggest attacking threat.
Provided a few dangerous crosses but never looked like scoring.
A lovely passer of the ball but couldn't get a grip in an overrun midfield.
Shielded the defence well and made several last-ditch clearances before falling victim to a tactical change which saw another striker brought on.
Had very little to work with but should have equalised with a second-half header.
- 1 J. Mucha
- 15 S. Distin
- 20 R. Barkley
Helped his side maintain possession and frustrate the visitors to hold out for a win.
- 11 D. Stracqualursi
Missed two great opportunities to put his side ahead after coming on as an early substitute, but his pace was a threat.
- 14 J. McFadden
- 25 G. Tremmel
- 16 G. Monk
Did well coming into the game to maintain solidity.
Didn't shine as much as the man he replaced, Gower, but kept the ball moving.
Had too little time to effectively influence the attack as Everton pushed for a comforting second goal.
