Would be harsh to fault the stopper for Lukaku's goal. Had pulled off some superb reflex saves before then.
A busy afternoon dealing with Everton's switching wingers. As dependable as ever. Didn't seem too interested in getting forward.
A captain's performance. Was always likely to be in for a difficult afternoon up against Lukaku but dealt with his threat very well.
Replaced with an injury just before half time. Was enjoying a fine afternoon before that with some key last-ditch blocks.
Another left-sided victim with most of the Villa play coming down the right flank. Final pass often lacking.
A quietly productive afternoon. Didn't often try anything too special but keeps play ticking over well. Always looking for the ball.
Seems to glide across the turf when in possession and forces attacking situations. A real threat all afternoon and linked up with Agbonlahor on many occasions.
A quiet afternoon. Didn't see a great deal of the ball with a lot of Villa's play coming down the left flank. Defended well when required.
A lively display from the former England international. Worked hard to pressure the Everton defence and proved a menace all afternoon.
Should have broke the deadlock in the first half when through one-on-one with Howard. Indecisiveness cost him and was reduced to long range efforts from then.
Unsurprisingly, the main goal threat for Villa. Missed a penalty early on and squandered several clear cut chances. Involved in almost all attacking play but failed to do what Lukaku could and find the back of the net.
A brilliant display of goalkeeping by the American. Produced a superb stop to keep out a Benteke penalty and pulled off several top class stops throughout.
Didn't get forward as much as he would have liked but defended well when needed. Linked up with Osman well for the goal.
Was given the unenviable task of keeping Benteke quiet and, although the Belgian saw a lot of the ball, he did his job well. Looks every inch an established international.
Back to his best after a nervy display last week. Rarely looked troubled. Defies his advancing years.
Was at his best, as always, for Everton down the flank, playing a key role in Martinez's side's win. More is certainly to come from Coleman this season.
Seemed to be everywhere for the visitors with a real energetic display. Rarely loses the ball and looks a good signing.
Offered just as much energy as in his previous games for the Toffees, proving his importance to coach Martinez.
Enjoyed his return to his former club and capped off a productive afternoon with an assist. Experienced display.
Saw his first half strike rattle the crossbar but often tried to do too much in the final third. Replaced early in the second half.
Was at his menacing best as he bullied the Aston Villa defence for the duration of the 90 minutes. Scored once and was lively throughout, winning this particular round in the Battle of Belgium.
Linked up superbly with international team-mate Lukaku, despite failing to register a goal.
