Largely untested for much of the game and could do little about Pienaar's fortunate opening goal.
The left-back limited Magaye Gueye's impact and was one of the hosts' biggest attacking threats. Saw two efforts palmed away well by Howard.
Had a tougher task on his hands than his fellow full-back in keeping Baines and Pienaar quite but did well. Had less attacking impact as a result, though.
The centre-back was a calm presence against the potentially dangerous Jelavic and Anichebe. Kept the latter shackled particularly well.
Unlucky to see his clearance go in off Pienaar but was solid for the most part, bar some occasional lapses.
Worked some fine positions but never produced the final ball to make it all count.
Went down too easily at times but was a tricky customer - the sort which the Everton defence did not enjoy dealing with.
Was undoubtedly Bolton's best performer on the day. Won his tackles and got forward with real energy. Provided the assist for Sordell to equalise.
His name was roundly booed by visiting fans fully aware of his ties with Liverpool. Responded by producing a solid, if unspectacular, defensive midfield performance.
Worked hard alongside Spearing to get his body in front of an on-rushing midfield but showed little quality in possession.
Was occasionally bullied by Distin and Jagielka but evidenced predatory instinct with his front post run and finish in the first half.
Came on in the last five minutes to a rapturous ovation.
Just could not seem to get the ball as a late substitute stationed out on the left.
Replaced Sordell late on and had little chance to influence matters.
Was more regularly worked than his opposite number but produced some good stops.
Struggled to get his trademark pin-point crosses to hit home for much of the game but kept going.
Looked as composed as ever at the back, providing a defensive wall for the Toffees even when they were on the back foot.
Beaten to the front post for Sordell to equalise but shackled the youngster well.
Spearing and Vela's attempts to quieten him were admirable and, though he did break through increasingly regularly in the second period, his impact was not as telling as he might have liked.
Reverted to a deeper, central midfield role and subsequently did not provide the attacking thrust for which he has been hailed this season. Battled hard, all the same.
Forced Eagles inside well and did not look threatened for much of the game at right-back.
Wasted a great opportunity in the second period by misplacing a lay-off in the box. His frustration grew increasingly clear as the game wore on.
Had looked bright before succumbing to injury early on. David Moyes had expressed caution over using the Belgian here and will rue doing so.
Still looks short of the confidence which saw him make such an impact upon his arrival in England. His best chance came from a delightful through ball but the heaviness of his touch spoke volumes.
Had a few headed chances which he failed to convert. Showed some real sloppiness in possession when the ball was on the deck.
Came on in the second half to help Everton push Fellaini up and made the vital contribution, crashing the ball home in the dying seconds from the edge of the box.
Put in an ineffectual performance out on the right after replacing the lively Mirallas.
