Sunderland 0-1 Everton: Player Ratings

Your chance to tell us we're wrong.

Alex Livesey

Vito Mannone - 6

Slightly shaky, though the defensive performance at Spurs would be enough to give anyone the shakes.

Phil Bardsley - 6

Okay, committed-ish. Largely ineffectual though. That position needs a little dynamism added to it for us, but we've known that for a while.

Marcos Alonso - 7

Beaten down the side for the decisive goal, but Deulofeu is a very tricky customer in fairness. Attacked very well and always provided an outlet.

Wes Brown - 5

Once again in the wrong place at the wrong time, which is happening to him far too often.

John O'Shea - 6

Good solid return to the side, I thought. Sunderland's Mr Inconsistency.

Lee Cattermole - 7

Generally very good, despite the odd wayward pass. Nice that he is finally finding consistency and maturing into a player just when we can't keep him any longer. Lovely.

Jack Colback - 6

Pressed the ball well, but did precious little thereafter.

Ki Sung-Yueng - 8

Sunderland's smallest irritant, no question. Very unlucky not to get himself a goal and the only attacking player to offer a consistent threat.

Adam Johnson - 6

In and out of the game a little too much.

Fabio Borini - 7

Loads of running, tremendous character. Probably should have scored but still a good performance.

Connor Wickham - 7

Held the ball well for the most part and made sure he was involved. Hugh decision to make over him in the summer.

Seb Larsson - 5

If he played with the passion with which he moans, he'd be beyond reproach. Sadly, that's far from the case.

Smallest Irritant: Ki Sung-Yueng

A welcome return to form for the Korean, but ultimately not enough. He was a genuine attacking presence and never let his head drop like we have seen previously from him.
