Rarely tested but was fortunate to see a Brunt effort blocked by Long after making a fine save to deny Scharner.
As steady as ever defensively but his crossing leaves a lot to be desired.
Ensured Shane Long had little opportunity to do anything with what little ball he received.
Uses the ball brilliantly from full back and was a creative force again.
Had an incredibly quiet afternoon beyond allowing Scharner past him for West Brom's best chance.
Kept the ball moving and had his customary long-range shot but wasn't exactly a creative force.
Though he was not awarded the Everton opener, his clever turn deserved the fortune of the generous deflection on the subsequent shot. Subbed at half-time injured.
A constant threat to the West Brom defense. Created the second with his incisive running and cleverly timed pass.
Kept the ball brilliantly and showed sufficient bite in midfield. Marked his 100th Premier League appearance with a mature showing, the type of which he has increasingly given this season.
The goals appear to have dried up for the Australian midfielder but his aerial presence, which is bizarrely prevalent for man of his stature, allowed Jelavic to make all the right runs.
Not his finest performance with the ball but always provides menace with his movement.
Had no chance to prevent the opener after a wicked deflection but made an excellent stop in the first half to deny Fellaini.
Clumsy in the tackle and consistently worried by Pienaars runs in from wide.
Turned far too easily by Osman in the lead up to the opener. Never looked assured as Hibbert continually worked space on the left.
Allowed Baines and Pienaar to spark several Everton attacks from the left.
Awarded a goal that he would hardly have wanted after Osman's shot flew in after his attempted block. Marshaled Jelavic relatively well after that.
Gave West Brom its best chance with a shot across goal in the first half but hardly put his stamp on the game as West Brom were dominated in the middle.
Had very little effect on a toothless West Brom attack and was rightly substituted.
Has provided goals from midfield in the past but failed to effect the game going either way today.
Could have had a much brighter afternoon had Shane Long not accidentally blocked a certain equalizer. Did little else, though.
Anonymous throughout. Though Shane Long had been poor in attack, his desire to make things happen surpassed that of Odemwingie, making the Nigerian's performance arguably worse.
A poor performance which wasn't helped by the fact he was often stationed 20 yards from any of his teammates.

Had been on the pitch just a matter of moments before he produced a fine finish to double his side's lead.

A halftime replacement for the injured Osman, didn't match his teammate's performance but ran hard.
