Could not be faulted for the first or third goals, but will be disappointed to have let Fellaini's header slip through his hands, and could be seen apologising to the home fans afterwards.
Attempted to get forward as Villa looked for an unlikely route back into the game, but could do little to stop the onslaught from the Toffees in the first half.
Struggled to cope with Everton's attack during the first half, but improved notably after the break and dealt especially well with Mirallas.
Along with his fellow defenders, looked lost as the visitors ran riot in the opening 45 minutes, and was put out of his misery with a red card on the hour after tripping Jelavic when through on goal.
Villa's only standout performer, with two fantastic blocks to deny Jelavic and Naismith at the beginning of the second half. Filled in well at centre-back after Clark's dismissal.
Had Villa's only effort on target in the first half, but was outshone greatly by the Toffees' midfield and was one of many to have little impact.
Looked lost as the likes of Fellaini and Pienaar ran rings around the entire Villa midfield. Replaced by Lichaj on the hour.
K. El Ahmadi
Gave the home fans something to cheer when he pulled a goal back with 15 minutes remaining and was one of the hosts' better players going forward.
Made some threatening runs in the first half, but faded as the game went on and struggled to have any effect in a disappointing display.
Made virtually no impression on the first 45 minutes, and was subbed off at half-time for Holman.
A willing runner up front but could not make any impact on the game due to a severe lack of service. Saw one goal-bound effort well blocked by Baines late on.
A virtual spectator in the first half with just one shot on target to deal with, but should have done better with El-Ahmadi's goal.
Rarely troubled at the back, and got up the other end well to provide a perfect cross from out wide on the right for Fellaini to head in Everton's second.
Showed all his regular enthusiasm to bomb forward from left-back, and provided the cut-back for Jelavic to score the Toffees' third goal.
Nullified the threat of Bent well and was unlucky not to score when his powerful header came back off the underside of the bar.
A quiet game for the Irish midfielder, although he did produce one superb pass to Jelavic which led to Clark's dismissal.
Dealt with the pace of N'Zogbia without too many problems and showed a willingness to join the attack on occasion. An assured display at right-back from the veteran.
Followed up his excellent performance against Manchester United with another fine display. Headed in the second goal and showed some incisive passing going forward.
A solid if unspectacular display. Disciplined in midfield and rarely wasted a pass as others around him pressed forward at will.
Opened the scoring with an unstoppable 25-yard effort and looked bright going forward, linking up well with Fellaini and Jelavic.
Set up Pienaar's opener and could have been on the scoresheet himself were it not for a fine block from Baker.
A tireless worker up front. The Croatian got his reward just before the break, tapping in Baines' pull-back with a typically clinical one-touch finish.
Came on for Herd after 60 minutes and showed some promise going forward, but by this time the game was over as a contest.
Gave Villa a new dimension in attack and almost set up a thrilling finish when he hit the post late on after coming on for Bannan.
Introduced at the break in place of Delfouneso and had one half-chance to reduce the arrears which was well defended by Everton.
Came on for Naismith and looked to revel in Villa's disarray, looking bright and pressing forward well as Everton looked to add to their lead.
Thought he had opened his account on his debut only to be denied by the linesman's flag. A bright introduction after coming on for Gibson.
