Maarten Stekelenburg: 8.5/10

The Dutchman enjoyed his best game in an Everton shirt. Despite two crucial stops from De Bruyne and Aguero’s penalty efforts, he also made numerous saves throughout the game, including an acrobatic save to deny De Bruyne’s long-range effort in the second half.

Seamus Coleman: 6/10 

Coleman endured a troublesome time on Everton’s right-hand side and barely had a chance to go forward. He provided too much space for Silva to deliver in the cross for Nolito’s goal but was otherwise solid in defence.

Ashley Williams: 8/10 

Undoubtedly the Welshman’s toughest test in an Everton shirt, but the former Swansea player was up to the challenge. Williams lept a close eye on the City attackers and was almost faultless throughout the game. The Welshman received a yellow card late in the game, for what was his only bad challenge in the match.

Phil Jagielka: 5/10 

Jagielka would have been keen to impress the England manager, who was at the stands, and barring the two penalties that he conceded, he put in a solid performance alongside Ashley Williams. 

Bryan Oviedo: 5/10 


The Costa Rican was given a torrid time in the first half by the quick-footed Sane and the defender was lucky to have nothing come of the pressure. He showed signs of improvement in the second half and it remains to be seen if he can continue to keep Baines out of the line-up.

Gareth Barry: 7/10 

Barry put in a tireless shift against his former team. The veteran midfielder was forced to play within his own half for most of the game and played a key role in guiding Everton to a valuable point.

Idrissa Gueye: 7.5/10 

The former Aston Villa midfielder was equally as good as Barry, if not better. He played on the back foot for most of the game but did well to keep the City attackers at bay and stop them from taking more chances at goal.

Tom Cleverley: 6/10 

Cleverley operated in a much deeper role than he has previously played in at Everton. He was part of an impressive collective defensive effort from The Toffees and was replaced by Funes Mori in extra time.

Gerard Deulofeu: 6.5/10 

The Spaniard was forced to play through most of the match with his back facing goal but had a lot of running around to do as Everton sat back and played on the counter.

Yannick Bolasie: 6/10 

It was Bollasie’s deft touch that put Lukaku through on goal for the opener, although the former Crystal Palace winger was hardly involved apart from that. He moved more centrally in the second half and was taken off in the final few minutes.

Romelu Lukaku: 8/10 

The Belgian was a frustrated figure for most of the 90 minutes. But when he did get a clear-cut chance on goal, the forward expertly finished off to score the opening goal of the game.


James McCarthy: 5/10 

McCarthy replaced Duelofeu just before 60 minutes as Everton were looking to sure up the midfield. 

Kevin Mirallas: N/A 

Mirallas was brought on to the pitch with five minutes to go to add fresh legs to the team.

Ramiro Funes Mori: NA 

The Argentinian came on in stoppage time to help run down the clock
