The former Manchester United man was given very little to do in the first half by the visitors but was alert early in the second, getting down well to stop Kagawa's effort from distance. Pulled off a fine stop to deny Rooney late on also.
The youngster has had an outstanding second half of the season at Goodison Park and delivered yet another fine performance in central defence. Rarely looked troubled.
Got forward early on, advancing past Kagawa with ease as he motored up the right flank. Was a menace on the wing throughout and made Everton's second by playing in Mirallas.
Started a little shakily with a rushed clearance on the half-volley but soon settled alongside Stones. Did not give Rooney an inch in the area before being replaced at half-time.
Could very easily have been playing in red in this game but proved again just how big an asset he is to his side, coolly dispatching from the spot to give his side the lead just before the half-hour mark. Outstanding all game.
Looked to spread the play from the middle with a number of lofted passes to the flanks that opened up United. Barely put a foot wrong.
Returned to the side after suffering with a muscular injury and slotted back in sublimely. Pivotal to his side's play in the middle of the park, keeping hold of possession expertly.
Such an exciting player with the ball at his feet, Barkley showed the other side of his game with some incredibly hard work down the left flank, tracking Nani throughout.
Caused all sorts of problems in the air for Evans and Jones and won his side a penalty with a dangerous shot on goal which was blocked by Jones's arm. Lacked a little industry in the second half.
Should have put his side ahead on the 22nd minute but lashed an effort way over with a rushed shot on the half-volley. Was an otherwise calm head behind Lukaku however, opening up acres of space with some instinctive running off the ball.
The Belgian struggled to escape the attentions of Buttner in the opening exchanges but soon drifted inside and had much more of an influence, running at the United defenders at will. Doubled his side's lead with a fine finish, having broken the offside trap.
Could do little to keep out Baines's penalty and was let down by Buttner as Mirallas made it 2-0. Looked frustrated by his team-mates' efforts again.
Made a mess of his attempt to block Lukaku's shot and gave away a penalty for handball. Did not look comfortable with Lukaku, who had the beating of him in the air all afternoon.
Has been struggling with a long-term calf issue but started alongside Jones in the centre of defence. Perhaps fortunate not to concede a penalty after Naismith's volley hit his arm in the area 20 minutes in.
Tucked in centrally to deal with the aerial threat of Lukaku but struggled on the flank, wasting a number of passes in an advanced position when United countered.
Stepped in for the absent Evra and showed his inexperience at the highest level, criminally playing Mirallas onside as the Belgian made it 2-0 to the hosts.
Kept hold of the ball well alongside Fletcher deep in midfield but struggled on the turn as Everton advanced. Did not provide enough tempo to trouble the hosts.
A passenger at the base of United's midfield as, like Carrick, he struggled to keep up with Everton's pace on the break.
Had a threatening start as he linked up well with Mata but became a peripheral figure thereafter, with Baines having no trouble in keeping the Portuguese quiet. Just not good enough again.
Overcame a recent toe injury to start against his former club as captain but was rusty with his passing, chipping a number into the path of Baines when a ball across the floor would have been sufficient. Deteriorated in the second half with a woeful performance.
Showed plenty of movement off the ball as he looked to draw the Everton defenders out but was largely ineffectual. Went missing when it mattered.
Bagged a double last time out against Newcastle and was again the man who looked most likely to make something happen for his side. Deserved better options than those around him.
