Here are our player ratings for Everton from the 1-1 draw against West Ham.
Everton and West Ham United battled to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup last night, which leaves both teams staring at a replay and another fixture in an already busy schedule. Romelu Lukaku scored Everton’s only goal.
Here are our player ratings for the game.
Robles – 6
Did a decent job and made good saves when he was called upon under pressure.
Coleman – 6
Wasn’t able to get forward as effectively as he has done in big games, but did a decent job defensively.
Jagielka – 6
Looked nervous at times and couldn’t find options when looking to move the ball forward.
Distin – 5
Didn’t look fit and was at fault for West Ham’s goal.
Oviedo – 6
Much like Coleman, he tried to get forward but couldn’t because it would have threatened the side’s defensive stability.
Barry – 7
Did a positive basic job in front of the back four. There were signs that he’s slowly getting back to his best.
Besic – 8
The best player on the pitch for the home side. He grabbed the midfield by the scruff of the neck and tried to make things happen.
Naismith – 7
Won’t be happy with his performance but he worked his socks off and deserves praise for that.
Barkley – 6
He’s not suited to a wider role and it showed. Looked far more dangerous when he drifted in to play through the middle.
Mirallas – 6
Popped up in a variety of positions trying to have an impact on the game.
Lukaku – 7
Worked hard and kept his composure for his goal at a vital late moment in the match.
Eto’o – 5
Struggled to get into the game and picked up a needless booking.
Stones – N/A
McGeady – N/A
