Gomes (7) â€“ A couple of good saves but dropped two crosses and was a mess for the Everton goal.
Corluka (7) â€“ Mostly classy and skilful (and slow) as usual. Ably assisted Kranjcar going forward, poor (non existent) challenge at corner for Yakubuâ€™s goal.
Bale (7) â€“ Familiar enterprising stuff going forward, though quieter in the second half as we were pushed back.
Dawson (6) â€“ Really struggled against Yakubu in the second half. Shocking distribution put us under pressure.
Bassong (7) â€“ Did well during the second half given what was going on around him.
Modric (8) â€“ All those in the middle who played lost possession far too often during the game, Luka though coped best with the close attentions of the Everton midfield and also scored a goal to remember.
Huddlestone (7) â€“ Fine pass for the first goal and was using the ball skilfully until chopped down by Heitinga and carried off.
Palacios (7) â€“ His non-stop running and tackling just about outweighed his casual and over confident passing.
Kranjcar (7) â€“ Showed a lot of running and fight. Was often our best hope of a goal after the break.
Defoe (7) â€“ Made one and nearly got on the end of a couple of Bale crosses.
Pavlyuchenko (7) â€“ Pretty quiet but showed a true strikerâ€™s instinct for his goal.
