Player Ratings | Everton 2-2 Watford

Jordan Pickford – 5

Made some decent saves but might have done more about Watford’s second as Doucoure’s header went through him. Distribution wasn’t what we’d expect from him either, but not a major culprit.

Seamus Coleman – 4

Not a great day for the Irishman. Found it difficult both defensively and going forward, and scored the own goal to let Watford back into the game.

Michael Keane – 5

Below-par in the second-half especially, allowing Watford much more freedom than they deserved. Solid in the air, but not as much on the ground.

Yerry Mina – 6

Had a couple of decent chances from headers, but was booked for a silly handball early on. Put himself about well in defence though, most of the time.

Lucas Digne – 7

Great free-kick to salvage a point at the death, showing his winning mentality when picking up the ball afterwards as well. Slipped in the lead-up to Watford’s second goal, but can be forgiven for saving his team at the end.

Idrissa Gueye – 4

Just not good enough on the ball, almost a liability at times. Didn’t provide enough protection for his defence either as he normally would, especially in the second half.

Andre Gomes – 6

Contributed an assist for Richarlison’s opener and got about the pitch well, before enduring a difficult second-half amidst pressure from Watford.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – 6

Fruitful in the first half but faded when Marco Silva changed the attacking formation to try and win the game after Watford’s two-minute double. Definitely more effective in his No. 10 role.

Theo Walcott – 5

Better than he has been recently, looking like he had a point to prove with his positive runs after returning to the side. However, often finding it difficult to finish off those positive runs which can be quite frustrating.

Richarlison – 7

Threatening against his former employers, and finished well for the opener before getting his feet mixed up for another crucial chance. A thorn in the side of his former teammates, though.

Bernard – 6

Looked to play some ambitious balls and create chances, but they didn’t always come off. Got back to cover for his teammates when needed too on a couple of occasions.


Lookman (Walcott, 66) – 6

Couldn’t be as effective as he has been in recent cameo performances, but still always looked to make things happen for Everton when on the ball, often dropping deep to receive it.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Bernard, 66) – 6

Looked positive and pacy again but couldn’t really find a way through.

Cenk Tosun (Gueye, 71) – 5

Couldn’t do enough for Everton’s cause during his time on the pitch as they looked to create more opportunities.
