Football Insider rates the Everton players after their 1-1 draw against Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League encounter at Goodison Park.

Maarten Stekelenburg 4 – Made a poor error in judgement by rushing out to meet a through ball, was punished as a result by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s chipped goal. The experienced player should have known better.

Seamus Coleman 6 – Was unable to showcase his attacking talents and thoroughly tested by Anthony Martial. Fans will be concerned after he was forced off injured.

Ramiro Funes Mori 6 – Replaced Phil Jagielka in the starting line-up and looked settled, but always looks vulnerable to a mistake.

Ashley Williams 6 – Dealt well with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s presence and one of few players who looked assured.

Leighton Baines 7 – Stayed composed by converting a late penalty to earn his side a valuable point.

Idrissa Gueye 8 – Was excellent in breaking up play with his interceptions and involved in a fascinating battle with Paul Pogba. Everton’s best player and earned his team a penalty after being fouled by Marouane Fellaini.

Gareth Barry 6 – Steady display in the midfield and picked up a usual booking for his combative approach.

Kevin Mirallas 5 – Extremely quiet performance by the Belgian, but did spring to life on one occasion to bring a good save out of United goalkeeper David De Gea.

Tom Cleverley 4 – Offered very little going forward against his former side and was withdrawn after a dreadful afternoon.

Yannick Bolasie 6 – Managed to get several good crosses into the box, but didn’t get on the ball enough.

Romelu Lukaku 5 – Had the physical edge overUnited defenders Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo, but was unable to exploit that and create any chances in front of goal.
