Rarely troubled by a Chelsea attack which just didn't show up. Handled well in moments of rare danger.
Has admitted a tendency to struggle with nerves in big games in the past but well and truly appears to be over that. Has one of the best deliveries in the league.
Won some crucial headers when the home side found itself under pressure.
Had little to deal with thanks to Torres' ineffectiveness but showed some calmness on the ball.
Some return. Took his goal brilliantly and was the Toffees' main attacking threat throughout.
Like his midfield partner Fellaini, not outstanding but solid and did not waste a pass.
Quietly impressive, the Belgian. Kept things simple and showed bite in the tackle.
Knew exactly when to cut in to clear danger and when to shepherd out wide. Looks just as comfortable at right back as in central midfield these days.
Has not had as large an impact in this spell on Merseyside but his movement and quality make others around him better.
Something of a battering ram, the striker. Did his job well but looked unlikely to cause any threat with his skill. That said, his hard work deserved a chance and he took it brilliantly.
Busy around the box throughout and forced Lampard into the error which led to the opener.
Got a weak palm to the second goal but could do little about the fine strike which marked the first.
Allowed Donovan in from the right for the second goal and did not have a comfortable afternoon against the American.
Looked the only competent Chelsea defender at times, controlling the lone striker when possible.
Still erratic in his positioning and often out muscled by Stracqualursi.
Given a hellish day defensively by the brilliant Pienaar and thus could provide no attacking threat either.
Lost his head a little at times, appearing frustrated at Chelsea's inability to control the game.
Part of a midfield three which suffered against Everton's energetic lineup.
A rare bright spark in the Blues' attack. Bizarrely subbed with the visitors chasing the game.
When will the striker's troubles end? Woeful here again in a team which does not look built to get the best out of his talents.
The young striker's father called for him to be deployed in a central position this week and, in fairness, he could perhaps be less anonymous in that position than he was today.
- 22 R. Turnbull
- 24 G. Cahill
Replaced the injured Ashley Cole and showed some attacking bursts.
- 19 Paulo Ferreira
- 12 J. Obi Mikel
Added little to a toothless Chelsea attack.
His addition, in the place of Juan Mata, was unwelcome by even the Chelsea support. Failed to get involved.
