CM) Jordan Henderson – 6
Worked hard in the centre of the park, taking over the captain’s armband from Gerrard when he was replaced.
RM) Lazar Markovic – 6
A quiet night for the Serbian, for whom a blocked volley was arguably his most notable moment.
LM) Alberto Moreno – 7
Endured a couple of scrappy moments, but worked hard up and down the left hand side, never stopping running.
AM) Philippe Coutinho – 8
Made one brilliant run to set up Gerrard for the shot that hit the post, another good night for the Brazilian.
AM) Steven Gerrard – 6
Hit the post with one outstanding effort from range. Replaced mid-way through the second-half, having battled just to be fit for the game.
ST) Raheem Sterling – 8
Scored a wonderful solo goal to fully justify his extended winter break. His individual moment of brilliance has put the Reds in with a real chance of progressing.
