    Tim Howard

    Had little to do but looked assured throughout. Pulled off a good save from Crouch in the second half.

  • Phil Jagielka

    3.00

    Phil Jagielka

    Given the task of keeping Crouch quiet and did so with ease. The captain has had more testing afternoon's than today.

  • Bryan Oviedo

    4.00

    Bryan Oviedo

    Deputised for the injured Baines and capped off a fine display with a goal. Always looking for the ball and provided some quality deliveries.

  • Sylvain Distin

    3.00

    Sylvain Distin

    Bounced back from a stuttering display against Liverpool with a solid defence showing. Kept Walters out of the game.

  • James McCarthy
    26

    4.00

    James McCarthy

    Another outstanding display from the summer signing and he is proving to be worth every penny of the £13m that Everton parted with. Energetic and keen throughout.

  • Gareth Barry
    22
    1
    3.50

    Gareth Barry

    Quietly effective from the Manchester City loan man. Kept the game ticking over and provided some quality distribution in key areas.

  • Leon Osman
    19

    3.50

    Leon Osman

    Back in the side to replace Barkley and was instrumental to his sides' play. Wasn't afraid to get stuck in.

  • Steven Pienaar
    25
    2
    3.50

    Steven Pienaar

    His trickery and showmanship terrorised Stoke all game and linked up well with Oviedo in Baines' absence.

  • Seamus Coleman
    25
    1
    4.00

    Seamus Coleman

    Had little to do in the way of defending and pushed forward with quality when needed. Deserved his goal.

  • Gerard Deulofeu
    89

    4.50

    Gerard Deulofeu Top of the Match

    At the heart of literally everything that the home side created. Proved himself to be more than just a super sub with a goal and two assists. Staked a claim for a starting spot.

  • Romelu Lukaku
    45
    4
    4.00

    Romelu Lukaku

    Deserved his late goal after an afternoon of hard work and strong hold up play. Clearly enjoying life at Everton.

Substitutions

  • John Stones
    13

    3.00

    John Stones

    Introduced late on. Had little defending to worry about.

  • Nikica Jelavic

    Nikica Jelavic

    Set up Mirallas late on and showed touches of quality.

  • Kevin Mirallas

    Kevin Mirallas

    Brought on late. Nearly scored with a right footed strike.

  • Asmir Begovic
    13

    2.50

    Asmir Begovic

    Would be harsh to criticise the stopper despite conceding three goals. Pulled off some solid saves.

  • Erik Pieters
    3
    2
    2.00

    Erik Pieters

    Given a stern test from the excellent Deulofeu and will be in no rush to see the Spaniard again.

  • Muniesa
    15
    2
    2.50

    Muniesa

    Handled the obvious threat of Lukaku well and will be pleased with his display after a busy afternoon.

  • Ryan Shawcross
    6
    4
    2.50

    Ryan Shawcross

    Solid in the air as ever. Would have liked more protection from his midfield at times but did nothing wrong as far as goals conceded go.

  • Geoff Cameron
    6

    1.50

    Geoff Cameron Flop of the Match

    The game seemed to pass him by and did little of note throughout the contest.

  • Glenn Whelan
    4
    5
    1.50

    Glenn Whelan

    Cut a frustrated throughout and at times looked overran in midfield. Deservedly booked early on in the second.

  • Steven N'Zonzi
    4
    3
    2.00

    Steven N'Zonzi

    Didn't provide enough protection for his back four in front of a lively Everton midfield but used his aerial threat in advanced positions well.

  • Charlie Adam
    7
    2
    2.50

    Charlie Adam

    The former Liverpool man seemed to relish facing his old rivals and was a central figure for Stoke. Will have wanted more help from his team mates.

  • Jonathan Walters
    4

    2.00

    Jonathan Walters

    A very quiet afternoon. Was provided little service and never looked like troubling Everton's defence.

  • Oussama Assaidi
    4
    5
    2.00

    Oussama Assaidi

    His manager will have seen him as the creative option for his side but did was comfortably dealt with by Coleman.

  • Peter Crouch
    5
    4
    2.50

    Peter Crouch

    His sides' best effort fell to the former Liverpool man and was unlucky not to pull a goal back. Linked up well with Jones late on.

Substitutions

  • Brek Shea
    5
    2
    2.00

    Brek Shea

    Brought on late to try and salvage some pride but the game was beyond reach by then.

  • Kenwyne Jones
    14

    2.50

    Kenwyne Jones

    Offered moments of genuine quality that his side had been lacking before his introduction. A rare positive for Stoke.
