The American was typically solid under crosses and looked sharp off his line. Was given no chance with Di Santo's opener, with the ball taking a wicked deflection off Tony Hibbert before flying into the top corner.
Got his goal and proved to Everton just how important he can be after remaining at the club despite rumours of his departure in the summer transfer window. Gave Franco Di Santo no room to move and looked to build play from the back. An impressive shift.
The Frenchman worked hard to quell Rodallega, who showed impressive movement throughout, and stood up to the powerful South American, rarely getting beaten to the ball.
The young Irishman was in electric form down the right-hand, causing new boy Patrick van Aanholt all sorts of trouble. Was unfortunate to see his drilled cross left unconverted on the half hour mark.
Playing against his old club, Baines delivered a performance of the quality we have come to expect from him. Ploughed down the left to cause Lopez plenty of problems and whipped in a number of excellent balls.
Full commitment as ever from the full-back who never stopped running for his side’s cause. Whipped in an excellent ball towards Marouane Fellaini on the 20 minute mark but the Belgian failed to meet it. Got his assist late on to provide Vellios with his first Premier League goal. A fine display all-round.
Was a little isolated out on the left and opted to move inside to have more of a say on proceedings. Pitched a wicked ball into the area early on but was largely wasteful, causing a number of Toffees attacks to break down. Brought off shortly after half-time.
The catalyst behind Everton’s attacking play, Osman drifted from his marker superbly on a number of occasions and stretched the Latics midfield to breaking point. A little less successful on the ball, wasting a couple of passes as the Toffees broke
It’s easy to forget that Fellaini is only 23 years old and his maturity appears to be growing week after week. Kept the ball very well, linking up with Rodwell and moving the ball on comfortably.
Dominant in the centre of midfield for the Toffees, breaking up play when Wigan counter-attacked and saw an effort fly wide after only two minutes. Showed good movement but still lacked that final touch of class.
The Australian will be expected to find his goalscoring touch following the sale of Jermaine Beckford and the long-term injury to Victor Anichebe. Was unfortunate to see his header crash against the bar and was a nightmare to defend against in the air.
Ali Al Habsi
Could do nothing about Jagielka's equaliser and will have been disappointed to concede after a quiet first half in which he directed his defence well and looked confident under a barrage of crosses from Hibbert, Baines and Coleman.
Had a nightmare at Eastlands last week, giving away a penalty and struggling against Kun Aguero and looks to have lost a little confidence allowing both Leon Osman and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov a little too much time on the ball down the left wing.
The Honduran started in an unfamiliar centre-back role but adjusted well, flying in with an inch perfect tackle on Coleman early on and proving dominant in the air. Proved himself to be a very adaptable performer.
Looked to take responsibility at the back alongside the youngster Van Aanholt and did very well in monitoring Cahill, who was an obvious threat in the air.
P. van Aanholt
The young Chelsea loanee was kept very busy by the flying Coleman down the channel and looked a little out of his depth on a number of occasions, getting caught flat-footed by the rapid Irishman.
Has shown glimpses of his undoubted quality this season but struggled to get time on the ball at Goodison Park. Looked dangerous in and around the area but will have been frustrated by his side's wastefulness in possession
The Spaniard was brought back into the side having started as a substitute at the Etihad Stadium and showed some classy touches in the midfield, adopting a deeper role in midfield and dictating the pace of the Latics' steady counterattacking play.
Failed to gain a strong foothold in the game throughout the opening exchanges as the hosts kept hold of the ball. Went missing for long periods as his balls failed to reach Rodallega and Di Santo far too often.
Was heavily tracked by youngster Jack Rodwell in the middle of midfield and was kept largely quiet but was involved in the build-up to Di Santo's opener and didn't stop working.
Always looked a threat with his movement off the ball and was just about caught offside with a threatening run after only three minutes. Held the ball up well but certainly tired towards the end.
F. Di Santo
The young Argentine will be determined to prove that his recent brace against QPR wasn’t simply a flash in the pan and got his third goal in as many Premier League games, with his deflected strike flying past Howard.
- 1 J. Mucha
- 5 J. Heitinga
- 18 P. Neville
Wrapped it up late on with a cool finish past the despairing Al-Habsi.
- 20 R. Barkley
Was brought on as Everton chased the game with just over 20 minutes remaining and made the ultimate impact, latching on to Tony Hibbert's superb cross with only five minutes to go give his side the lead.
Played in Drenthe for Everton's third after coming off the bench late on and impressing at Goodison on his Toffees debut
