Made a couple of good stops, the first to deny Johnson. Could do nothing about Sterling's volley that crashed off the bar. A simple catch from a Gerrard effort.
Presented Sterling with a great opportunity after his misplaced clearance in the first 10 minutes, but saw the shot saved. Had a couple of chances to get forward, but was mostly pegged back with either Downing or Enrique attacking.
Recovered from a knock to the ankle, but played a few risky passes that put Williams under some unnecessary pressure. Mostly did well when he faced Suarez.
Was a little slow to close down Johnson early on before a decent cross. Had a big problem when Suarez and Sterling broke late on, but stayed calm and perhaps got a bit lucky when the latter put too much on his pass.
Mostly dealt well with Suarez, but the Uruguayan got the better of him occasionally. Saw a header cleared off the line, though it looked to be veering wide.
Worked the ball out from under his feet and curled a shot towards the far corner that just didn't bend enough. Wriggled away from Johnson before firing over. Found Michu well with a cross, and was a problem for the Reds to deal with when on the ball. Had a dangerous free kick tipped wide by Reina.
Got a good shot in early that was palmed wide by Reina. Put in a decent ball that Shechter couldn't get a touch on. Looked lively but couldn't carry over his form from the first half into the second and was subbed.

Completely fluffed a great opening for the team. Should have passed when in a four-on-two situation, but shanked a shot miles wide. Was replaced late in the game after an ineffective second half.
Made some good interceptions, in particular from Gerrard's silly back heel. A solid performance as ever, kept it simple with a typically high pass completion rate.
Just couldn't get on the end of a Routledge through ball. Didn't get enough service from the midfield, but equally didn't really show signs that he can permanently oust Danny Graham from a starting role.
Struggled to get on the ball in the opening half, but wasn't shy of a shot when he did, though most were blocked. Was a lot more dangerous in the second period, as he advanced into the striker's role but saw a penalty shout turned down.
Made a good stop early on from Routledge. Was brave in the second half and took a boot to the face for his troubles, but recovered. Made a good save from Hernandez's late free kick.
A very impressive performance. Put in a great ball that Enrique couldn't direct on target. Showed great feet on more than one occasion, and would have opened the scoring but for a good save from Tremmel.
Dealt well with Shechter, but was troubled more by Michu in the second half. Survived a very soft penalty shout as he would have expected to.
Looked dangerous cutting in off the wing, but was guilty of taking one too many touches on occasion. Couldn't get a solid contact on a good cross from Johnson. Linked well with Suarez. Made a good block on Michu 10 minutes before the end.
Made some good blocks on Michu's shots in the opening 45 minutes, but was largely untroubled throughout with Agger man-marking the Spaniard.
His first start of the Premier League season and alongside Allen was likely to be under close scrutiny, but started well. Was a little anonymous though, and replaced late in the game.
Was always going to be a difficult trip for the 22-year-old, but he did well mostly. Crisp passing was marred slightly by a couple more fouls than he needed to make, but a good performance.
Attempted a silly back heel that almost led to an opener for Swansea. A sloppy first 45, with some misplaced passes. Had a curled effort in the second half but it was simple for Tremmel. Made one fine pass for Johnson, but nothing came from it.
Surprisingly switched to left-back by Rodgers, and made a decent start. A bad mistake let Dyer in late on and led to the collision between the winger and Reina, and he was subbed moments later.
Had an opportunity early on that he should have done better with. Hit a brilliant effort on the volley that struck the crossbar. Less influential in the second half. Overhit a vital pass to Suarez on the break that could have opened the scoring.
Was his usual lively self around the box, playing a fine ball for Enrique but he was just offside. Looked a cut above the rest, but as is sometimes the case, was lacking a finish to match his super work-rate.
Came on at half-time, and slotted nicely into the centre of midfield. Made a very sloppy clearance that almost led to a goal though. Earned a free kick in a dangerous position.
Came on for Routledge and almost immediately saw a volley blocked. Got into a collision with Reina after a Downing mistake.
Joined the match late in the second half, and didn't get too many opportunities to impress, but made a couple of good runs off the ball and put in a decent cross.
Replaced the ineffective Henderson, but had little time on the ball. Nonetheless, forced a good stop from Tremmel in his short time on the pitch.
