Player Ratings: Everton 2-1 Hull City

Steven Pienaar scored just seconds after coming off the bench to keep Roberto Martinez's side in fifth place in the Premier League table, just four points behind leaders Arsenal

    Tim Howard

    Could do nothing to prevent the equaliser and will be more disappointed with his defence for allowing Hull to see so much of the ball in dangerous positions.

  • Leighton Baines

    Leighton Baines

    As impressive as ever going forward but was beaten down his flank by Aluko for Hull's equaliser. Involved in most of Everton's attacking play.

    Phil Jagielka

    Solid. Never looks under pressure but clearly missed his long searching punts up field. Martinez will likely look to address that as he moulds a short passing game.

    Sylvain Distin

    A shaky afternoon for the Frenchman. Put Howard under unnecessary pressure with a heavy back pass and missed a few interceptions. The equaliser came from his side also.

  • James McCarthy

    James McCarthy

    Fitted in really well to his new side and offers the battling qualities that Martinez was looking for. Helping ease the pain of losing Fellaini.

  • Gareth Barry

    Gareth Barry

    His range of passing will prove crucial in the absence of Gibson. Has all the ability to pull the strings in the middle and did exactly that today.

  • Ross Barkley

    Ross Barkley

    Will be keen to book his place on the plane to Rio with England and is doing his chances no harm with recent performances. Often tries to do too much but always looking for the killer pass. Lively game.

  • Leon Osman

    Leon Osman

    Started the game brilliantly and was involved in all of Everton's meaningful exchanges. Replaced in the second half by Pienaar and may find his position under threat soon enough.

  • Seamus Coleman

    Seamus Coleman

    Had very little to do defensively. Loves getting forward and did so to great affect today. At times played the wrong pass but always involved.

  • Kevin Mirallas

    Kevin Mirallas Top of the Match

    Opened the scoring and was unlucky with several chances after that. His trickery proved too much at times and looked back to his best.

  • Romelu Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku

    Everton fans must have wondered what was going on when he left the pitch without scoring. A frustrating afternoon for the Belgain, who did not offer as much of a threat as usual.

    Steven Pienaar

    The super sub made his long-awaited comeback from injury and scored the winner having only been on the pitch for 20 seconds. Has been missed.

  • Arouna Kone

    Arouna Kone

    Offered more of a threat than Lukaku but was wasteful with a key chance that should have put the game beyond doubt.

  • Steven Naismith

    Steven Naismith

    Brought on very late but saw a lot of the ball. Has the knack of being in the right place at the right time.

  • Allan McGregor

    Allan McGregor

    Not at fault for either of the goals conceded and did very well to keep Everton at bay deep into the second half.

    Liam Rosenior

    Will have been relieved to see Baines not bombing forward as often as we are used to. Solid at the back but replaced for a more attacking option.

  • Maynor Figueroa

    Maynor Figueroa

    Seemed unable to cope with the trickery and pace of Mirallas and will be glad to see the back of the goalscorer.

    Curtis Davies

    The stand-in captain gave the sort of performance that his manager will have been looking for. Commanding and composed.

  • Abdoulaye Diagne Faye

    Abdoulaye Diagne Faye

    A real no-nonsense centre-back who is a handful at corners. So it proved with two first-half headers that perhaps should have troubled Howard more.

  • Tom Huddlestone

    Tom Huddlestone

    An extremely accomplished midfielder who appears to have settled well into life at Hull. Rarely loses the ball and breaks up play superbly.

  • Jake Livermore

    Jake Livermore

    A quiet afternoon from the man on loan from Spurs. His pace looked a threat at times but was not used often enough.

  • Sone Aluko

    Sone Aluko

    Provided the assist for Hull's goal and looked a handful all game. Productive afternoon.

    Did not see a great deal of the ball with his side having to contain Everton for lots of the game.

    Robbie Brady

    His pace was well used on the counter attack when needed but often failed to provide the link up play that his position requires.

    Stephen Quinn

    Brought on deep into the second half and did not inspire the comeback the Steve Bruce would have wanted.

    George Boyd

    Seemed to enjoy the physical battle in midfield once introduced but failed to impose himself on the game.

    Y. Sagbo

    Replaced Graham early on and offered a real physical presence that troubled Everton. Took his goal very well.
