The Chelsea goalkeeper made two excellent saves at full-stretch to keep out Osman and commanded his penalty area well.
The Chelsea captain returned from injury to replace David Luiz and showed true leadership by popping up in added time with a crucial hand in the winning goal.
Had to be wary of Naismith's moment and made some important interventions in the penalty area, including a great block to deny Mirallas.
Good performance from the Serbian, who had to be alert defensively to the combination between Baines and Pienaar. Also a threat going forward and only denied by a fine save from Howard in the second-half.
Stuck to his task but sometimes struggled with the trickery of Mirallas. Did little in attack although he forced Howard in to one first-half save.
Strong physical presence shielding the back four and denied Everton space between the lines, particularly in the second-half. His passing was not particularly ambitious or creative.
Full of his usual tricks but found it tough to get away from the attention of Everton's players.
The Brazilian playmaker looked well off the pace from the very start. Gave the ball away too much and a virtual passenger before he was replaced by Ramires at half-time.
Kept the hosts ticking along and still showed his knack for making expertly timed runs into the box. Forced Howard in to an excellent save shortly after the restart and provided the decisive goal.
Worked hard and made some clever runs, but nothing quite came off for the Brazilian. Could not find the final ball and mishit shots before being replaced by Torres in the 62nd minute.
The veteran Cameroonian looked sharp early on but lacked a killer instinct in the Everton box. Closest he came was with a left-footed shot straight at Howard in the first-half.
The American made some wonderful saves to keep Everton in the game - especially to deny Ivanovic - but should have done better for the eventual winner.
Very impressive performance from the England centre-back. Dominant in the air against Eto'o and always alert to read danger.
Superb throughout the afternoon as Everton kept Chelsea's considerable attacking threats at bay. Showed all his experience to deny the home side space in the final third.
The Ireland international showed his pace and strength to keep Hazard quiet for much of the afternoon, although some of his starting positions were poor. Dangerous on the counter-attack, too.
The England left-back defended well and constantly looked to bomb forward. Some lovely link up play and dangerous crosses.
Played with intelligent tactical discipline alongside Barry at the base of the visitors midfield.
As has become the norm, some great link up play with Baines and drifted into good areas in the final third. Worked hard defensively to support his full-back.
Twice forced Cech into excellent saves from the edge of the area as he joined attacks and produced dangerous strikes on goal. In general, struggled to get away from Matic but played some neat touches in attacking moves.
Clever anticipation of Chelsea attacks as he thwarted danger and started forward moves with precise passing to team-mates.
The Belgian winger infuriated his manager. Had the beating of Azpilicueta and looked dangerous, but his execution was often poor. Best chance was badly miskicked just before the break.
Hardly had any time to prepare after Lacina Traore picked up an injury in the warm-up, but the Scot didn't let anyone down. Never looked a goal threat but was always comfortable with his back to goal, making the right runs and finding team-mates with the ball.
Added stability and energy to the Chelsea midfield after he replaced compatriot Oscar at the start of the second-half. Fired inches wide from 25 yards late on.
Lively display from the German after coming on for Eto'o in the 69th minute. Fired over with a volley from 10 yards.
Came on for Willian in the 62nd minute but couldn't find a way to goal. One horrible slice went well wide of the post.
