Had very little to do as Everton dominated possession. Survived one minor spill in the first half.
Combined as brilliantly as ever with Pienaar. Forced Stam back constantly with his tireless running.
Despite his advanced years, the Frenchman seems to have retained his pace of old. Was forced to use it as Wigan tried to exploit the hosts' high line. Defending poorly to let Kone in late on, however.
Did well to shackle Arouna Kone when Wigan could have been dangerous on the break. Did slice a clearance in the second half, though it was not in area which caused much trouble.
Did not hugely influence the game as Everton attacked down the flanks but struck the bar with a wonderful strike in the first half.
Found space out wide due to Wigan's unusual formation but did not always capitalise. Worked hard.
Everton largely stumbled in attack but Osman typified their willingness to keep going. May have been fortunate with the deflection for his goal but if you don't buy a ticket...
Regularly drifted to the right to threaten Wigan and won the ball well in midfield. Subbed off at half-time, presumably with injury.
Not always a convincing crosser from right-back but rarely tested defensively by Wigan's wing-backs.
Battled hard up front but largely failed to spark. Should've done much better when played through one-on-one early in the second half.
Threw in some ill-advised challenges out of frustration and was mostly shackled.
Ali Al Habsi
Commanded his box well under great Everton pressure. Unfortunate to be deceived by a deflection for Osman's goal.
Beaten regularly on the right-hand side and did little with the ball in advanced positions.
Looked the least comfortable of Wigan's back three and it was perhaps unsurprising the opener deflected in off his hand given the nature of his performance.
Kept Jelavic and Anichebe under wraps for most of the game but will have been disappointed to see his side concede from a set piece.
Needed to help Stam regularly on the right-hand side as the full-back struggled to contain Pienaar and Baines. One of Wigan's brighter performances.
Used the ball intelligently and tackled well to ensure Everton did not turn their domination into chances.
Occasionally looked uncertain of his position in midfield when Everton had the ball. Replaced with 20 minutes remaining.
Put in some excellent crosses from the left but allowed Osman inside him too easily for the Englishman's opening goal.
Underlined why he and McArthur have become such a highly rated midfield partnership. Provided a solid bases to break from on the counter.
Had something of a thankless task trying to turn water into wine up top. Unfortunate not to score when denied by Phil Neville's tremendous block in the second half but got his goal late on after refusing to give up on a bouncing ball in the box.
Provided the short corner from which Everton got their second and went close with a long-distance effort.
Deployed in an unusual midfield role as a late sub. Kept things ticking over.
Replaced Gibson at half-time but had little impact from the right of the pitch.
