Good early stop to deny Jagielka and made a few other decent saves. Could have dominated his area a bit more for the ball but was let down by his defenders. Some shaky handling too.
Made a huge mistake in the lead up to Naismith's goal by punting the ball straight up in the air, and into his own box, instead of clearing the danger.
Poor header conceded the early corner which gave Jelavic a great chance. Set-pieces were dangerous though, including the equaliser.
Partly to blame for Everton's first when involved in a mix-up with Gorkss. Marking was non-existent on Naismith. Lucky to not give away a penalty for handball, too. Fine block to deny Hitzlsperger after the break though.
Shambolic on two occasions in the run-up to Everton's first, hesitating in the area and generally being lackadaisical. Lucky to escape punishment when hacking Naismith down inside the box. Booked for poor challenge on Coleman.
Not tight enough to Fellaini, who found plenty of space in midfield. Cleared Jagielka's header off the line and won the free kick from which they equalised, though.
Quiet game as Reading were dominated in midfield. Didn't offer much going forward.
Wasteful in possession and was outplayed in midfield. Put in some important tackles after the break though.
Had little ball with which to assist his team, but worked hard in the second half as the game was stretched.
A. Le Fondre
Lots of running early on, had a brilliant chance to level the scored but failed to hit the target. Rose and headed very well indeed to get his side level. Should have done better with another chance after the break, but scuffed it. Tucked away the penalty he won to claim all three points.
Poor hold up play and wasted most of what ball he got. Not as effective as Le Fondre, though he did set-up his partner with some fighting play to dispossess Hitzlsperger.
Had a rush of blood when he charged out of goal, giving Le Fondre a brilliant chance straight after Naismith's goal. Could do nothing about the goals.
Solid at full-back, and tracked back with some fine tackles. Was clattered by Gorkss in the first half and did well to carry on. Made a goal-saving sliding tackle on Le Fondre in the second half, but then gave away the penalty.
Clumsy foul on Le Fondre early on but rarely tested thereafter in the first half, caught out by the forward a few times after the break.
Saw an early instinctive toe poke saved well by Federici and had a header cleared from the line. Maybe could have taken control of the box for the goal.
Some decent deliveries from the wing, caught out a few times at the back but generally solid.
Had some joy on either wing, should have done better with a decent chance 20 minutes in but hesitated with his shot. Just lacking normal creativity.
Was denied a fine goal when trying to lift the ball over Federici, with the keeper producing a good stop. Lively in midfield. Important block from a Tabb volley early in the second.
Found space in front of the Reading back four and caused the defence numerous problems with his strength - namely in the build-up to Naismith's goal. Quiet game by his standards, though he hit the post after the penalty.
Saw a typical long-range drive spilled by Federici, which nearly allowed Jelavic to get in. Gave away a foul in build-up to Reading's equaliser. Should have done better with a good chance after the break, before gifting the hosts one of their own.
Snatched at an early chance which he should have done better with. Helped assist the goal and should have won a penalty when his shot hit Morrison's hand.
Found space in a crowded box for his goal, giving himself an easy finish. Always looked dangerous when running in behind and proved hard to pick up. Would have had a fine assist if Osman beat Federici with his one-on-one. Also should have had a penalty when brought down by Gorkss.
