Seamus Coleman sat out most of the 2-2 draw with Leicester, returning to full fitness to face Arsenal. After a sloppy first few touches, Everton's reigning Player of the Year opened the scoring with a back-post header and added an assist in the defeat to Chelsea.
Goals can often inflate a defender's rating and Coleman will be disappointed with his defensive showings thus far. Both Arsenal goals came from his flank and, as with most of Everton's back line, he was unusually inconsistent against Chelsea.
As with Coleman, Baines added an assist against Chelsea and has been typically prominent in attack, causing Leicester particular problems down Everton's left. He grades slightly higher than Coleman for his defensive work, which has been marginally more reliable.
Everton's left has been less porous than the right-hand side and Baines kept Willian, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain relatively quiet during his individual match ups.
A 'D' may seem harsh but Stones' only involvement was against Leicester. Initially playing out of position at right-back, the youngster struggled to add any threat in attack and seemed hesitant in his positioning at the back.
He finished the game as part of a three-man defence and was caught out for Leicester's winner, leaving Chris Wood free to slot home an equaliser.
