Ian Hine rates who shone and who struggled at the Amex Stadium.

A couple of great saves in the first half, one excellent down to his right at the near post. No chance with the equaliser. Apart from the goal, not much for him to do in the second half
Allowed Richarlison to get in front of him for equaliser but otherwise solid. Always looking for the forward pass
Blocking, organising, standard Lewis Dunk. Could possibly have conceded a penalty but arm adjudged to be natural. Took over free-kick duties in the 85th minute but his drive was beaten away by Pickford
Always makes himself available for Albions possession-based defensive work. Not much opportunity to get forward in first half. Tired in the second half but managed to find the energy to surge forward to create the opening for Trossard.
Passing not quite on point in first half. Was getting forward but often caught in possession. Subbed off on 64 for Schelloto
Quietly efficient in midfield and made some timely interceptions, as well as a fine covering tackle. Picked up a yellow and was quiet in second half. Gave the ball unusually often.
Very lively in early stages but became quieter. Allowed Everton midfield too much of the ball at times. Came back into the game in the second half
Very lively. Impressive in midfield. Carried on where he left off in the second half, ever willing to work an opening. Good low shot well saved by Pickford towards the end.
Superb free-kick rocket that flew past Pickford. Always willing to link up with front-runners. Found space in the box to glance home a header that was ruled out for offside. Subbed on 64 for Trossard
Another busy performance but quieter as Everton came into the game later. Good play with his back to the goal. Perhaps fortunate to draw the penalty but his foot was definitely trodden on. Subbed after a good afternoons work.
Always prepared to run the channels and caused problems for Everton defensive line. Smashed home the penalty, keeping his composure after a long VAR deliberation. Energetic to the end.
Brought on after 65 minutes for Montoya. Saw a few trademark galloping runs and looked very lively. Caught out of position a couple of times but was able to recover.
Lively as soon as he came on. Created space down the left, causing problems for the defence. His low cross was turned into his own net by Digne.
Only on for 12 minutes but made himself busy with his back to goal. Used experience to keep possession at the end
Would feel he might have done better with the freekick. A few good saves in the second half but was well beaten for the penalty and could do nothing about the winner.
Involved in all Evertons good work. Swung in corner for Richarlison goal. Good tussle with Webster. Good delivery from corners in the second half, which caused problems for the Albion defence
Quiet first half. Hands full looking after the lively Connolly. Steady second half and perhaps unlucky to concede the penalty for treading on Connellys foot.
Quiet first half but dealt well with the threat down Albions right flank. A few problems I n the second half with the overlapping Schelloto. Yellow card on 85 minutes for a poor tackle on Maupay 25 yards out.
Always willing to link with Walcott and keen to overlap. Perhaps lucky with high arm in the first half. Quieter second half but still willing to get forward
Saw lots of the ball early on but largely ineffective with his distribution. Came into the game a little more in the second half but still unable to get a real foothold in the game
Conceded free-kick that led to Albions opener. Otherwise quiet
Some good moments and worked hard to link play with Richarlison, particularly in the first half. Quieter in the second period and struggled at times to get his foot on the ball. Substituted with 19 minutes to go.
Lively first half, causing problems for Dan Burn. Always willing to try and get in behind. Drew a fine plunging save from Maty Ryan. Similar in the second half but started to fade before being substituted on 71 minutes.
Injured after innocuous slip on 27 minutes. After treatment he was able to walk off but couldnt continue. Gylfi Sigurdsson came on
Always snapping at the heels of the defenders in a feisty first half display. Did well to get in front of Webster for the equaliser. Faded in the second half
Came on after the injury to Bernard. A couple of good moments including a shot straight into the arms of Ryan. Quiet second half
Came on after 71 minutes and caused a few issues
Brought on after 71 minutes and timed his run to perfection for the goal that put Everton ahead.
