Michael Laudrup's men followed up their historic win over Chelsea by overcoming a late Toffees onslaught to earn a respectable draw at Goodison Park on Saturday

By David Lynch at Goodison Park

  • Tim Howard

    Tim Howard

    Tipped the ball over from Michu's shot in the first half but was the less busy of the goalkeepers.

  • Leighton Baines

    Leighton Baines Top of the Match

    As creative as ever from left-back. Sent in a couple of crosses which arguably should have been converted.

  • Phil Jagielka

    3.00

    Phil Jagielka

    Provided a solid wall in which largely snuffed out any shots from the Swans.

  • Sylvain Distin

    3.50

    Sylvain Distin

    Used his pace well to keep up with the lightning counterattacks from the visitors. A controlled performance.

  • Phil Neville
    1

    3.00

    Phil Neville

    Struggled to keep pace with Swansea's fluid midfield at times but used the ball economically.

  • Leon Osman
    1
    0
    3.00

    Leon Osman

    Worked hard, as you would expect, and moved the ball intelligently through midfield.

  • Steven Pienaar
    1
    0
    3.00

    Steven Pienaar

    Did not have his usual impact up against two defenders down his flank. Still provided some dangerous, whipped crosses.

  • Seamus Coleman

    0
    3.50

    Seamus Coleman

    Started at right-back but got plenty of joy pushing up. Showed some real trickery and put the ball in threatening areas.

  • Marouane Fellaini
    1
    1
    3.00

    Marouane Fellaini

    Marshalled by Chico and Williams for the majority. Should have done better with a first-half chance.

  • Nikica Jelavic
    1
    1
    2.50

    Nikica Jelavic

    His desire to pull wide often left him in positions where he could not harm Swansea and his crosses left a lot to be desired.

  • Victor Anichebe
    1
    0
    3.00

    Victor Anichebe

    Provided his usual aerial menace and pressed the Swansea defence regularly.

Substitutions

  • Steven Naismith
    0
    1
    2.50

    Steven Naismith

    Missed an opportunity to set Anichebe up after arriving as a substitute.

  • Apostolos Vellios
    0
    1

    Apostolos Vellios

    Replaced Anichebe but had little time to make a telling contribution.

  • Michel Vorm

    0
    3.50

    Michel Vorm

    Called into action regularly but dealt with everything thrown at him. An impressive shot-stopping performance.

  • Chico
    4
    0
    3.50

    Chico

    Faced a big test up against the physical threat of Anichebe, Jelavic and Fellaini but largely stood up to it.

  • Ashley Williams
    3
    0
    3.00

    Ashley Williams

    Made some key clearances in the box and worked well with his defensive partner.

  • Dwight Tiendalli
    3
    0
    3.00

    Dwight Tiendalli

    Did not always look certain up against Pienaar and Baines but shackled the pair fairly effectively with Rangel.

  • Ángel Rangel
    1
    2
    2.50

    Ángel Rangel

    Deployed in an unfamiliar right-wing role, the Spaniard did infinitely more tracking back than attacking.

  • Ben Davies
    1
    1
    2.50

    Ben Davies

    Bamboozled by Coleman on several occasions. Stuck to his task with admirable determination, though.

  • Michu
    5
    2
    3.50

    Michu

    Came closer than any other Swansea player to scoring, with a lofted first-half effort. Not provided with an awful lot to work with but looked classy on the ball.

  • Pablo Hernández
    0
    3
    2.50

    Pablo Hernández

    Picked up some good positions but typified Swansea's wastefulness after good build-up. Failed to find Dyer in acres of space in the first half when the winger would have been in on goal.

  • Nathan Dyer
    0
    5
    2.50

    Nathan Dyer Flop of the Match

    Wasted some great attacking positions by failing to get the ball under control. Rightly substituted for De Guzman early in the second half.

  • Sung-Yong Ki
    5
    2
    3.00

    Sung-Yong Ki

    Kept things simple in the middle and launched many of Swansea quick counters.

  • Kemy Agustien
    0
    1
    3.00

    Kemy Agustien

    Made to work hard at the base of midfield by Osman's fluid movement. Did not make too many telling contributions.

Substitutions

  • Wayne Routledge
    0
    0
    2.50

    Wayne Routledge

    Had very little impact bar marking Coleman's runs from deep.

  • Jonathan De Guzmán
    1
    0
    3.00

    Jonathan De Guzmán

    Forced to work backwards as a second-half substitute, with Everton controlling the game.

  • Danny Graham

    Danny Graham

    Had little time to make an impact as Michu's replacement.
