Generally alert and quick off his line and expressed his frustration with the sluggishness of the players in front of him when he looked to distribute the ball. Had little chance to stop Oscar's header before Hazard beat him from the spot.
Showed glimpses of his ability to break forward but wasted one good chance when played through by Suarez and did not test Bertrand as much as he might have liked.
Defensively solid, but could have offered more width and support to the winger in front of him.
Not responsible for the errors that led to the goals and brought the ball out of defence confidently and aggressively despite the lack of life in front of him.
Guilty of losing Oscar at the near post when the Brazilian headed in Mata's corner to put Chelsea in front. Otherwise he and Agger did well in preventing the Blues' front four from playing through them.
Looked uncomfortable as the foremost of Liverpool's central midfielders as he was frequently caught in possession by Mikel and Ramires. In fairness, he had little space to operate in as the Reds struggled to stretch the game.
Never likely to bring a game to life on his own but he stuck to the task despite Liverpool's poor start and carved out a couple of decent openings. His neat flick back to Suarez led to the equaliser.
Kept his eye on Mata and restricted the Spanish playmaker's influence but he found it more difficult to cope with Ramires' jinking runs forward.
Moved the ball left and right in a deeper midfield role and endeavoured to break forward to support the attack to some effect. Denied by Cech when played through on goal by Sturridge early in the second half.
Showed some enterprise early on but nothing really came off for him and he was replaced at half-time by Sturridge.
The best and the worst of the Uruguayan's polarising game was on display. Led Liverpool’s second-half revival and popped up with the last-second equaliser, but courted controversy with his nibble on Ivanovic and gave away a second-half penalty with a clumsy handball.
Made an excellent save from Gerrard early in the second half but could not stop Sturridge from levelling. A generally dependable display.
Still looks a significant step down from Ashley Cole despite his best efforts, and was stretched by Liverpool's better play down his flank.
Stuck tightly to Suarez in the first half, and was not afraid to follow the Uruguayan when he dropped into deeper positions. For the most part, he can consider his a job very well done but he could not stop Suarez from sneaking in for a late leveller.
Kept Coutinho in front of him in the first half and Sturridge had much more joy on the right or in the middle than on the left. Chose to focus on his defensive duties more than bombing down the flank.
Plays an important part in bringing the ball out of defence when Chelsea choose not to field a natural deep-lying playmaker, and was defensively reliable as he, Mikel and Ivanovic proved difficult to beat until Suarez snuck in for a dramatic equaliser.
Aggressive in the tackle and dangerous when he was able to manoeuvre into space on the attack, slipping some dangerous through-balls into his team-mates around the opposition penalty area. An accomplished display.
Looked the most threatening of the Chelsea front four and located Torres on a couple of occasions with some neat one-touch passing. Sent Reina the wrong way to restore the Blues' lead.
J. Obi Mikel
He and Ramires did an excellent job in denying Liverpool space through the centre of the park. Mikel made some timely interventions and used the ball well despite becoming more stretched after Sturridge's introduction in the second half.
Generally restricted to coming deeper to retrieve the ball as the centre of the pitch became very congested. His corners led to both goals as Oscar headed in before Suarez handballed.
Connected perfectly with a Mata corner at the near post to send Chelsea into the lead but otherwise struggled to find space in which to operate when he came inside from the left flank.
Worked hard and peeled off the Liverpool defenders to good effect but was simply too slow in picking his final ball or shot when he got into dangerous positions.
His immediate impact was remarkable after he replaced Coutinho at half-time, as he sent Gerrard through on goal before rattling the post with his own 25-yard drive. Then tapped in on the run to bring Liverpool level and led the charge in the final minutes, first flicking brilliantly for Henderson to set up Shelvey before his cross was nodded in by Suarez at the death.
