Against his old club, the American had little to do other than pick the ball out of the net after Hernandez's goal. Strong hands to tip an effort from Welbeck over the crossbar in the second-half.
Surging run and shot forced de Gea into action within 20 seconds. Dribbling ability was always a threat but United seemed to get wise and showed him inside.
The Dutch defender lost concentration and lost his man as he allowed Hernandez to put United ahead from close range in the 19th minute. Always looked vulnerable against the Mexican striker's exceptional movement.
A strong defensive performance from the full-back but he hardly crossed the halfway line, even when Everton were looking for a goal in the second-half.
Defensively solid against Park and his left foot was always a threat in attack from crosses and set pieces. Rattled the crossbar with a free-kick from 25 yards towards the end of the first-half.
Showed good awareness and was dominant in the air against Hernandez. Lack of pace exposed once by Welbeck but a relatively untroubled display.
The Russian winger was virtually anonymous in the first-half and looked like he was still half asleep. Replaced at half-time by Barkley.
Handed the floating role behind Saha usually occupied by the injured Tim Cahill. Tidy on the ball and got himself in some decent positions to shoot at goal. One snapshot in the first-half was struck slightly too close to de Gea.
The Belgian midfielder looked good in the first-half but faded as the game went on. Tidy on the ball and a threat at set-pieces, but he didn't have the creativity to break down United in the final third.
Appears to be making more use of his talents and showing some drive. Very classy on the ball and forced de Gea into a flying save in the second-half with a powerful left-footed shot.
A frustrating afternoon for the former United striker. Superbly marshalled by Vidic and couldn't work a yard of space to get a sight on goal. Looked tired in the second-half and was too static before being replaced by Gueye in the 84th minute.
There had been talk that the Spaniard might be dropped because of concerns over how he would cope with the high ball, but he was rarely tested in that regard by Everton. Showed solid handling and produced some good saves including an acrobatic effort to deny Rodwell in the second-half.
Dodgy moment in the first minute as he allowed Coleman to run at goal but reacted well, with a strong display against the dangerous Irishman. Also played his part at the other end, delivering the cross for Hernandez's goal in the 19th minute.
The 19-year-old has looked more comfortable at right-back this season than his preferred central defensive role. Solid against Bilyaletdinov and then Barkley while producing some powerful forward runs.
Handed a surprising start after his red card last weekend but repaid Sir Alex Ferguson's faith with a solid display. Showed good anticipation to deny Saha space.
Things could have been very different in the Manchester derby had United's captain played. The Serbian was a reassuring presence at the back and made some excellent tackles on the edge of the visitors' penalty area.
Dictated the tempo for United in central midfield before he was replaced by Nani in the 56th minute with an apparent knee strain. Intelligent on the ball and made good decisions, including a role in Hernandez's goal
A typically hard-working display from the South Korean as he played in three different positions over the 90 minutes. Good tactical awareness defensively but lacked quality in the final third.
The Scot still doesn't look at his best but his energy levels seemed to step up a level. Nicked possession a number of times and kept his passing efficient.
Kept his place in the side despite the re-introduction of Hernandez to the starting line-up. It didn't quite click for him in the final third but he tested Howard with a dangerous shot from a tight angle in the second-half.
The Mexican striker celebrated his new five-year contract - announced on Monday - by using his predatory skills to win the game for United with an effort from close range in the 19th minute. His excellent movement was always a threat before he was replaced by Berbatov in the 66th minute.
Played virtually as a midfielder on his return to Goodison Park, where he received a rather less hostile reaction than he might have expected. Put in a good shift with his pressing work and was always a danger when he had time and space on the ball.

Replaced Bilyaletdinov at half-time and looked classy on the ball without having a particularly significant impact.

Replaced Cleverley in the 56th minute and worked hard on the left wing, keeping his shape well without producing too much in attack.
The Ecuadorian replaced Welbeck in the 73rd minute and his pace offered the visitors a release ball in the closing stages.
- 7 M. Owen
Came on for Hernandez in the 66th minute and produced some classy touches while remaining typically economical with his running.
