With there only being a few weeks of the season left and it being an international break, let's see some overall assessments.
Pickford - 7 - Unfortunate for him that he's had to play behind a kid (Kenny), a multitude of average to terrible Cbs and a journeyman RB playing LB (Martina) all season but he's looked very good to me. A massive improvement on the likes of Joel and Howard in recent seasons.
Martina - 5 - I thought he was embarrassingly poor at RB but ironically has done alright at LB even if he does contribute to an attack once every 20 matches. Seems a solid pro but we should be doing better than him.
Keane - 4 - Some might think that's harsh but after a fairly decent start, I just can't believe how poor he's looked. His lack of pace and mobility is big concern for me and I can only hope we find the right CB partner for him. Whatever we paid for him was too much.
Klaassen - 2 - Has to be really. He hasn't had a sniff and was a passenger earlier on in the season. He does look like he might have something about him, though when you consider his price tag, He has been a miserable signing.
Sandro - 1 - Awful when he was on the pitch despite us clearly persisting with him and generally not good enough to get in a side crying out for an attacking threat. Already out of favour at Sevilla and can't see him being here next season.
Sigurdsson - 7 - A bit like Pickford that he's come into a poor team but I think his class has shown more and more throughout the season. His shooting ability, strength on the ball, unbelievable work rate and technical ability means he's absolutely been a success. A solid Pre-season and more stable Everton should see him flourish next season.
Vlasic - 5 - Just not had enough game time for whatever reason but he has produced some good stuff on the pitch... Toyed with a 6 but I just don't think we've seen enough of him despite obvious potential.
Rooney - 7 - Dipped at certain times this season but I didn't expect so many goals from him to be honest and considering his recent reputation then I commend him for staying at a good fitness level. Been an asset to us this season.
Tosun - 7 - Too early to say but good signs so far. Lacks pace but clearly a strong finisher and I think he's got the physicality to be a success in this league unlike say, Nikicia Jelavic.
Walcott - 7 - Similar to Tosun not enough time to judge but made a bright start. Showed the class he's gained from his experience at Arsenal.
