The right-back didn't have too much to do from a defensive standpoint. Pienaar drifted around and Baines rarely got forward for a change. He was composed in possession throughout.
Managed to deal with Stracqualursi well with Hill. Also managed to be felled by his own skipper - Joey Barton. It looked painful but he continued and led the line well.
Troubled by Drenthe early on and was reluctant to tread forward for fear of exposing his flank. Second half he was much more purposeful, pressing on and getting at Hibbert when he could.
Guilty of missing a good headed chance in the early stages, nodding Buzsaky's cross over. Defended well though and kept Stracqualursi quiet.
Not a great day at the office for the captain and is really lacking in form at the moment. His role appears undefined - it's hard to tell if he's supposed to be a defensive midfielder or provide support to the attack.
Started wide left but is always given the freedom to drift inside. This was one of his better days and indeed he was unlucky to see a curled effort hit the post. Won the free kick QPR which equalised from too. Was replaced by Jamie Mackie with 15 minutes remaining.
Sat deep in the anchorman role and looked to prevent Everton playing. Had QPR's first chance but flicked Buzsaky's volley just wide. Had a volley himself in the second half that flew wide but was competitive in his holding role.
Showed his class with a couple of well-delivered set pieces and came close with a volley that was helped wide by Shaun Derry. Midway through the half his 20 yard free kick forced Howard into a good save. Flighted a lovely ball for Zamora's goal and hit a number of speculative efforts. A fan favourite and a solid performer today.
Tried hard but another lacking form. He floats about looking for space but could not make anything happen in the pockets he did find, while his crossing was poor throughout. Bad game.
Took his goal very well, muscling in and slamming a header home. Did ok in his hold up play but was too easily dominated by Heitinga at times.
Made one decent save from Buzsaky but his palm on Zamora's header was in vain as the power beat him. Perhaps could have been more commanding and come to claim the cross.
Flicked on well from Drenthe's cross midway through the half to set up his Dutch team-mate, with the defensive duo relatively solid throughout the game.
Had the tricky task of dealing with an in-form Taarabt. Did ok in places but struggled to pick up the movement of the Moroccan as he drifted inside.
Coped with Wright-Phillips well in the first period but was a lone character at times. Very little action down the left but did a solid if unspectacular job.
Had a good opportunity to open the scoring but his touch from Distin's flick on wasn't firm enough to trouble Kenny.
Battled away as expected in the middle of the park but didn't provide enough quality going forward.
Such an imposing midfielder who always impresses. His workrate was excellent today and was exemplified by his tackle that turned over possession in the build up to the opener.
He looks at home back in the colours of the club he'd probably call home and showed good awareness to nip in and roll the ball to Drenthe for Everton's opener. Drifted in and out of the game but looked good when he found space.
Caused Armand Traore a host of problems in the first half before collecting Pienaar's pass and smashing a 25 yard strike past Kenny. Was booked for a bad tackle on Taarabt and though he continued to threaten, the risk of dismissal saw him replaced by Jelavic.
Worked tirelessly, as is expected of the Toffees' new found cult hero, but failed to pose a serious goal threat aside from the many set pieces.
The Aussie pounced on an early loose ball to volley onto the crossbar with Everton's first chance. Gave a steady showing but didn't offer enough of a threat as he continues his route back from injury. Replaced by Leon Osman.

Entered the fray late on.
Came on for Tim Cahill but couldn't impose himself on the game.
- 20 R. Barkley
Croatian made his return from injury, coming on for Drenthe. Scored a disallowed goal and ruined a number of promising chances with poor decision making.
