Read the full Liverpool player ratings below:
GK) Simon Mignolet – 6
Had a surprisingly quiet night – had little chance with Hazard’s expertly taken penalty, which sent him the wrong way.
RCB) Emre Can – 6
Will feel hard done by to have given away the penalty. Thankfully for the Reds, he didn’t allow the incident to phase him and responded well, looking very confident on the ball.
LCB) Mamadou Sakho – 7
Looked solid throughout, dealing well with Chelsea’s considerable threat. Took no prisoners with his hard-man approach, but kept it fair throughout.
CB) Martin Skrtel – 7
Continued his battle with Diego Costa, dealing well with the powerful Spaniard and putting in a dominant performance in the air.
DM) Lucas Leiva – 7
A typical Lucas performance with the Brazilian working hard in front of the back four, helping restrict Chelsea’s chances and starting a number of counter attacks.
