Everton 1-1 Leicester: Player ratings as Youri Tielemans earns Foxes point at Goodison Park

Youri Tielemans secured Leicester a point at Goodison Park as his side fought back from a goal down to draw with Everton.

The visitors dominated early proceedings but it was the Toffees who took the lead as James Rodriguez worked some space before curling a beauty into the far corner beyond Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester forced Jordan Pickford into plenty of saves in the second half and the pressure eventually told as the England stopper was deceived by Tielemans' strike from distance, which he could get a flailing hand to.

The draw keeps Leicester in third, two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, while Everton are seventh.

Let's get into the player ratings.


1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Jordan Pickford (GK) - 5/10 - Made four saves in total but the main takeaway will be that his error cost his side a win.

Mason Holgate (RB) - 6/10 - Had some shaky moments against Harvey Barnes early on but grew in stature as the game progressed. Not much of an attacking threat and subbed off in the second half.

Yerry Mina (CB) - 6/10 - Aerially dominant at the back for the Toffees and a loud presence. Minimised Ayoze Perez's influence alongside partner Michael Keane.

Michael Keane (CB) - 7/10 - A solid outing for the England international. Made one particularly brilliant recovery tackle. Quietly having an excellent season.

Ben Godfrey (LB) - 6/10 - A seriously strong presence at left back, even if it's not his natural position. Attacking game isn't particularly great but little got past him.

2. Midfielders

James Rodriguez (RM) - 8/10 - Curled in a beauty from the edge of the box to open the scoring. Added that bit of stardust Everton needed to get ahead when they struggled during the first half.

Andre Gomes (CM) - 6/10 -
Always happy dribbling past opponents, making a game-high five on Wednesday night, and his passing improved.

Tom Davies (CM) - 6/10 - Everton's central midfield partnership was a little sieve-like at times but Davies recovered from a poor start to have a decent game. Made a couple of crucial interceptions and clearances.

Lucas Digne (LM) - 7/10 - Pushed up the pitch to offer more of an attacking threat. Delivery from wide areas was great as usual. Skipper for the night.

3. Forwards

Richarlison (ST) - 5/10 - Grafted and did his defensive work but couldn't get anything going in an attacking sense.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (ST) - 6/10 - Everyone's favourite FPL striker had little to work with as Leicester dominated the ball. Had an intriguing battle with Leicester's central defenders but will have better nights.

4. Substitutes

Alex Iwobi - 5/10

Gylfi Siggurdson - 5/10

Seamus Coleman - N/A


5. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - 6/10 - Just the one save to make for the Dane, with Everton's attackers misfiring when they got forwards.

Timothy Castagne (RB) - 6/10 - Did well defensively, even if his attacking forays occasionally left Leicester light at the back.

Wesley Fofana (CB) - 6/10 - A poor attempted clearance gifted the ball back to Rodriguez, allowing the Colombian to hit the back of the net. Made sure the error didn't get the best of him though, being otherwise assured.

Jonny Evans (CB) - 7/10 - Exceptional again for the Foxes and got the better of Calvert-Lewin. Cut out plenty of crosses and was positionally excellent.

James Justin (LB) - 6/10 - Booked for stopping an Everton counter in the first half but linked well with Barnes down the left.

6. Midfielders

Marc Albrighton (RM) - 6/10 - Another grafting effort from the former Aston Villa winger. Made some good runs but rarely spotted by those pulling the strings.

Wilfred Ndidi (CM) - 6/10 - Covered ground well in front of Leicester's defence before picking up a knock and being substituted.

Youri Tielemans (CM) - 8/10 - Fired in the equaliser, helped somewhat by Pickford's weak hand. Passing not quite as crisp as it has been in recent weeks but still a mightily fine performance.

Harvey Barnes (LM) - 8/10 - An electric performance from the winger. Got the better of a number of Everton players throughout the game and bagged the assist for Tielemans' goal.

James Maddison (AM) - 6/10 - Started brightly and found plenty of pockets of space. Had a few free kicks in glorious positions but failed to deliver.

7. Forward

Ayoze Perez (ST) - 5/10 - Was dealt with efficiently by Keane and Mina, rarely getting much space to work with. Had to drop deep to get on the ball, contributing to some nice passages of play. He's just not Jamie Vardy, though.

8. Substitutes

Nampalys Mendy - 6/10 - Got well involved after replacing Ndidi, making sure the key midfielder wasn't missed too badly.

Cengiz Under - 7/10 - Some mazy dribbling caught Everton out at times, but decision making was a little off.

Caglar Soyuncu - 6/10 - Didn't have much defending to do upon arrival.
