MATHEW RYAN 6: A curious afternoon. No great saves to make but was beaten by three goals plus a Gana Gueye shot which came back off the post.

BRUNO 8: Perhaps the most assured Albion player in possession and defended quite well, including a memorable moment when he took the ball off Bernard.

SHANE DUFFY 6: Thoroughly tested back on his old stamping ground and did some good stuff – but was also caused problems by two-goal Richarlison.

LEWIS DUNK 6: Played most of the game on a booking and was heavily involved in two goals, one for each team. Heading past England squad colleague Pickford won't give him much consolation from a difficult afternoon.

GAETAN BONG 7: Had his hands full down his flank and did some decent last-ditch defending, the best moment coming in the second half.

ALIREZA JAHANBAKHSH 6: Still adapting. Penalty shout against him when he won the ball challenging Digne. Corners produced the first two goals! Late curler tested Pickford.

BERAM KAYAL 6: Drove forward when he could. Customary energy and no sign of a fifth yellow card leading to a suspension before making way late-on for Andone's debut.

DALE STEPHENS 6: Not what he would have hoped for on 300th career league start and first appearance at Goodison. Lots of grafting in vain attempt to repel Everton's grip.

JOSE IZQUIERDO 5: The Coleman-Walcott link was always a threat and the Colombian could have given Bong more help at times. Substituted midway through second half.

SOLLY MARCH 6: Not much opportunity to get into the game, but delivered perfectly for the goal. Replaced with 20 minutes left.

GLENN MURRAY 6: Quiet 350th career league start for Albion's 100-goal man. Fed off scraps up against Keane and Zouma.


ANTHONY KNOCKAERT: Tough to make impact at ground where he saw red last season.

YVES BISSOUMA: No chance of foothold in place of March.

FLORIN ANDONE: Minutes at last, straight after Everton's third.
