Jan Mucha: A torrid day in goal for the Slovakia international as Wigan fired three goals past him inside four first-half minutes, with the third strike by Jordi Gomez leaving him frozen on his line. 5/10.

Seamus Coleman: Repeatedly beaten on the left flank by Maloney. 5.

John Heitinga: An average performance on a poor day for the Everton defence. 5.

Sylvain Distin: Missed an early header then failed to stop Figueroa's header which gave Wigan the lead before he was outpaced by McManaman for the second. 5.

Leighton Baines: A relatively quiet performance from the Everton left-back, although he did come close to scoring for Everton with a powerful free-kick after the break. 5.

Phil Neville: Suffered a disastrous first half after he played a ball across the face of his own defence to tee-up McManaman for Wigan's second goal before he was replaced at half-time following a yellow card for a wild tackle on Jean Beausejour. 4.

Leon Osman: Along with Distin, was to blame for not marking Figueroa for Wigan's first goal. Earned a yellow card for a reckless challenge on Gomez. 5.

Marouane Fellaini: Did not match his usual influence in the match although he did offer Everton some physicality in the box. Was booked for tripping Maloney early in the second half before he was substituted for Gibson to boos from the crowd. 5.

Steven Pienaar: Looked lively in the first half but was unable to make any real impact on the game. 5.

Nikica Jelavic: Was Everton's main threat in the first half and forced a good low save from Robles but did not make his presence felt at the set-piece. Handled the ball in another attack and looped the ball over the bar in a game where he was far from his best. 6.

Kevin Mirallas: Created Wigan some problems with pacy breaks up the right wing and thought he had pulled a goal back for Everton midway through the second half, only to be beaten by the offside trap. 6.


Victor Anichebe (on for Neville, 46 minutes): Helped to shore up the Everton defence in the second half. 5.

Darron Gibson (on for Fellaini, 67): Was a steadying influence after the departure of Fellaini. 5.

Ross Barkley (on for Mirallas, 79): Stood up well to the physicality of Figueroa in his brief time on the pitch. 5.


Joel Robles: Had little to do during the first half but denied Baines and Fellaini after the break. 6.

Paul Scharner: Recovered from being struck in the face by Mirallas early on to remain solid in the Wigan defence. 7.

Antolin Alcaraz: Dealt well with Everton's rare attacks on goal in his first start since several months out with a groin injury. 7.

Maynor Figueroa: Climbed the highest to in the box to head Wigan's first goal following some good positioning in the box. Made no serious errors in defence in a physical performance. 8.

Emmerson Boyce: A solid performance from the Wigan captain. 7.

James McCarthy: Forced a great stop from Mucha which earned the corner which led to Wigan's opening score. Another steady display. 8.

Jordi Gomez: Fired Wigan's third from the outside of the area as the Everton defence remained static, and was one of the visitors' main threats. 8.

Jean Beausejour: Put in some testing crosses but was not always as accurate as Wigan manager Roberto Martinez would have liked. 7.

Callum McManaman: Outpaced Distin with a break down the right to blast Wigan's second goal before coming off due to injury five minutes before the break. 7.

Arouna Kone: Headed over Mucha's bar in the first half before he teed up Gomez for Wigan's third. A strong presence in the Everton box. 8.

Shaun Maloney: Unlucky not to score when he crashed a shot into the post after 10 minutes and almost set up Gomez and Kone with good runs down the left wing. Booked for a strong tackle on Mirallas. 7.


Ryo Miyaichi (on for McManaman, 40): Made a few surges forward but made little impact before he was replaced himself in the second half following a crunching tackle by Mirallas which saw him carried off on a stretcher. 4.

James McArthur (on for Miyaichi, 72): A steady performance from the bench. 5.

Roman Golobart (on for Alcaraz, 90): Too little time to make an impact. 4.
