Vitaliy Mykolenko – 5

Vitaliy Mykolenko was handed a rare start after arriving at Goodison Park in January. In only what is his third start in the league, Mykolenko looked like a work in progress as he looked a bit out of sync in the first half. Jarrod Bowen did make Mykolenko’s life troublesome in the first half.

After going behind for the second time, Mykolenko darted a series of crosses and Everton dominated a brief spell but all the balls were dealt by the West Ham defence.

Ben Godfrey – 6

Ben Godfrey looked far more defensively sound than Keane in the back four. Godfrey was brave to take on Antonio on a couple of occasions and come out equal or on the top of the West Ham forward. Godfrey did drive the ball forward to build an attack but nothing came out of it. Godfrey made a goal saving tackle late in the game, stopping Antonio in a close one on one situation against Pickford.

Michael Keane – 3

Michael Keane came to Everton’s rescue as he valiantly put himself between Michail Antonio and the Everton goal, blocking a solid shot. Keane was already treading on dangerous grounds after picking up an early booking in the first half. His day went from bad to worse after he roughly tackled Antonio, picking his second yellow and earning a red in the process, leaving Everton with a mountain to climb as they chased a goal.

Jonjoe Kenny – 5

Jonjoe Kenny entered the familiar territory, starting as a right back in absence of Seamus Coleman. The Everton academy product did push forward in the first half, darting in a couple of crosses but the Toffee strikers never really got on the end of the crosses.
