Player ratings: Martinez's reign hits new low as Everton put in spineless derby performance

Anfield Pitch

Everton were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield by Liverpool, and had a man sent off.

It was a huge couple of games for Roberto Martinez's side, but if Everton put in the kind of performance they showed against Liverpool at Anfield then their season will be over on Saturday night. 

Everton were in the game in the first half and had some purpose to them until headed goals from Divock Origi and Mamadou Sakho seemed to declare the game over.

Their situation wasn't helped when Ramrio Funes Mori's challenge on Origi resulted in a red card - meaning he will miss the trip to Wembley when they take on Manchester United, and give Martinez more defensive headaches for the clash with Manchester United.

Liverpool added to their tally further with goals from Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho and only a flurry of oles with the home side in possession that seemed to last a lifetime could make things worse - and summed up their lack of fight.

It's hard to be positive if you're an Evertonian after a night like that - but here's how they rated.

Joel RoblesMade a couple of saves early on to keep the scoreline level, and some stops prevented the scoreline from being worse than it was. One of very few to get some kind of credit but you can't score a goalkeeper highly if he's conceded four times - 5

Bryan Oviedo - He was clearly targeted by Liverpool, didn't look comfortable at all. Thought he was too nice, such as helping opposition players up when they were on the floor when it was clear they were having a breather - 3 

John Stones - Don't think he was caught on the ball as much as he usually does - that was what I put in the first half. But his misplaced pass contributed to Coutinho's goal. The damage was largely done by then, and then he went off injured - 3

Ramiro Funes Mori - First half he put in a brainless challenge that led to a free kick and you always sensed his head would go. Then the challenge on Origi happened - 0

Leighton Baines - Never really looked comfortable all night but hardly the worst culprit - 4

Gareth Barry - In early exchanges thought he looked solid, but pretty non-descript - 4

James McCarthy - One of the few that looked up for it and wanted to give a couple of players an earful - notably Coutinho in the first half, but there wasn't any real quality - 4

Aaron Lennon - Largely anonymous, got caught out giving a cheap free-kick away that ultimately led to Liverpool's opener. Poor - 3

Ross Barkley - A couple of little bursts when he looked dangerous going forward, then went missing - 3

Kevin Mirallas - Actually looked a bit dangerous earlier on, especially on the counter-attack. Had a shot - which was rare from Everton - 5

Romelu Lukaku - Isolated, disinterested. Actually forgot he was playing - 2

Substitutes:

Mohamed Besic - No idea what he's supposed to do when he comes on really. It seemed unfair, and he played centre-back for the most part - 4

Tom Cleverley - Actually don't remember him doing anything - N/A

Steven Pienaar - The same as Cleverley. What on earth is he supposed to do? - N/A
