Alex Iwobi – 8

Started the game brightly and carried the momentum from the previous games into this tie. Unarguably, Iwobi has now put up some of the best displays in an Everton shirt in last few games. Playing in an slightly advanced role, the Nigerian was always ready to test Ben Chilwell and use his trickery to get past the Blues. His crossing still needs polishing but one cannot complain about his overall displays.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 8

Won the penalty by making a really smart touch and falling don on the ground. It was of course a Edouard Mendy mistake but DCL needs to get credits for his play. He won another penalty in the second half only to be ruled out due to an offside call. The Englishman may not have been on the scoresheet but worked hard in keeping the pressure up top.

Richarlison – 7

Missed an early one on one, not testing Edouard Mendy. Was presented with a mouth-watering opportunity on the counter when Sigurdsson threaded the ball to the Brazilian. Richarlison again showed the qualities a hard working attacker, constantly helping the team in defence while running down the left flank withmenacing pace and intent. He had a couple of chances to increase Toffees’ advantage but neither of the efforts made past Mendy.
