Flapped at an early corner and Ramirez ended up heading in the opening goal. Hardly the American's finest moment, but he made for it by producing an excellent stop late on from Lambert. Everything else he coped with well and with minimal fuss.
Put in a couple of wild tackles and his passing raised some eyebrows before halftime, but he wasn't punished by Southampton. Relatively comfortable afternoon.
Very potent threat on the right hand side and although his final ball was a little sloppy at times, it was excellent at others. His fantastic cross set up Jelavic's second and he tormented Nathaniel Clyne.
The England international was excellent up against a potentially tricky Southampton frontline. His pace helped deal with Lallana and his strength helped keep Lambert fairly quiet.
Got forward with typical enthusiasm, but was caught out at the back more than once and the first occasion should have resulted in a Saints goal. As the match progressed Everton dominated, leaving Baines with not much to think about defensively, but he remained aware nonetheless.
The Belgian was everywhere; in attack, in defense and helped control the midfield for Southampton. His first touch was a little clumsy at times, but he was effective nonetheless. Commanding performance.
Post braided-hair, Pienaar was disappointing today. The attacker was involved a lot and his linkup play with Baines was good, but he insisted on cutting inside more often than not and Southampton were more than alert to this, stopping him again and again.
Few players in this Everton team are as consistent as Osman, and again he showed why he is just as important as the likes of Fellaini and Jelavic. His passing was accurate, he got the wide players involved and he scored the equalizer. Very few reasons to fault him.
Apart from the opening stages when Southampton posed a slight threat going forward, Neville had a fairly quiet afternoon. He kept his passes short and followed Gaston Ramirez around to good effect, with the Uruguayan not having a massive influence on the match.
The summer signing's passing was a bit wayward at times, but his pace and movement caused problems, while he played a role in two goals, with his run for Jelavic's first strike a particular highlight.
A physical presence throughout, he was always looking to burst through the Southampton defense, but his control was often letting him down. However, his persistence paid off as he gave Everton the lead with a great finish across the goalkeeper, and then he got his second with a back-post header. Jose Fonte found the Croatian unplayable.
Twenty-year-old Argentine Gazzaniga was making his second Premier League appearance of the season, and he certainly wasn't short of petulance. Everytime he had the ball he took as long as possible, effectively time-wasting from the 10th minute. He didn't do a great deal wrong, but could have done better from Jelavic's second goal by closing the angle more.
Had his heart in his mouth for a moment in the second-half after tackling Jelavic, but the referee rightly waved play on with the right-back's tackle timed perfectly. Considerably better than Clyne on the other side and helped keep Pienaar's threat to a minimum.
Had quite a battle with Seamus Coleman and was getting destroyed by the Irishman at times. Two Everton goals came from his area of the pitch and he didn't get forward very regularly either. He has seen better days.
Made some excellent last-ditch blocks in the first-half and appeared to be winning the duel with Jelavic, but the forward was too powerful for his first goal. He found Fellaini even harder to contend with, but despite the tough afternoon he didn't disgrace himself.
The Japanese defender looked very calm and composed, while his use of the ball from the back was decent too, but his positioning for Osman's goal should have been better as he was drawn to ball, rather than covering the Everton midfielder.
Apart from the first ten minutes or so, Everton completely controlled the midfield, meaning Davis was overrun. In the first-half he offered minimal resistance to Neville, Osman and Fellaini, and while he saw a bit more of the ball after halftime, he didn't have much influence.
Opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a header at the back-post, but apart from that the Uruguayan was rather anonymous as Southampton threatened rarely. The expectations of Ramirez are so high, but he can't go everything by himself and today he was not given much support.
Similarly to Davis, Everton had dominated for the most part in midfield, and the youngster found it hard going, particularly when trying to lend a helping hand with Fellaini. He did however, put in some good tackles in the second period, breaking up play on the edge of his penalty area.
Very quiet afternoon for the Saints captain. When he was involved he was mostly in his own half and he didn't get one run at Seamus Coleman, a full back who is definitely weaker defensively than in attack. A disappointing afternoon all round.
The former Burnley man had a fantastic opportunity to put Southampton 2-0 up in the first-half, but he missed the target from nine yards and he contributed hardly anything else until he was substituted late on for Mayuka.
Had his fair share of the ball in attack and used it well enough, but those behind him were not good enough on the day to create much for him. Looked isolated in the first half, while after the break he floated out wide too often.
