The FA Cup dream over for another year, the key men were shuffled around as Neil Thompson kept one eye on a monster clash with Coventry in midweek.
But who were the stand-outs and who struggled to keep up the pace? Let’s take a look at our player ratings from a big night at Goodison Park.
1. Fisayo Dele-Bashiru - 5
On for Bannan with 20 to go. Struggled to make his presence felt.

2. Jack Marriott - N/A
On with 10 to go.

3. Matt Penney - 5
Hardly surprising that he failed to get to speed with things straight away. He needs game time. Was unlucky to come on - with half an hour to go - as Everton stepped up their game.

4. Joey Pelupessy - 6
Had one or two bright moments and was progressive in his passing in the first half, but he lost concentration for Everton's second in losing Richarlison. Made some good interventions and battled hard as ever.
