Had little chance to get to Gerrard’s well-placed free kick that got Liverpool back on level pegging in the first half. Liverpool gave the Scot pot-shots here and there but he was never properly challenged from open play.
The former Wigan man had few problems going up against Moses and Johnson, not letting much get past him on the left flank.
Helped Davies suppress any threat from Suarez for the majority of the game, allowing the striker a minimum of shooting opportunities.
Dealt well with Suarez for most of the game and even had his own excursion into Liverpool’s final third with a header that dropped just a few inches wide of the post.

Dealt confidently with Liverpool’s switching wingers, only letting them pass on the odd occasion to carry on the threat. Shifted up from right-back to winger after the inclusion of Rosenior and looked even better in his more familiar position.
Had a decent game but marred his performance by electing to clamber to the ground in the Liverpool box instead of staying on his feet when challenged by Lucas, earning a yellow card from Howard Webb for simulation.
Opened the scoring with a fortunate shot that deflected off of Skrtel enough to bamboozle Mignolet and put Hull ahead. Had a reasonable game overall.
The midfielder put in a solid performance throughout, capping it off with a well-placed goal that put the Tigers back in the lead after Gerrard’s equaliser.
Sitting in the whole in front of the defence, made a decent afternoon of it and encountered little trouble until Coutinho came on and he was made to work a bit harder. Put the game to bed by forcing Skrtel into heading the ball into his own net.
The captain played well and kept Hull moving through the channels before being taken off midway through the second half.
Always a threat on the counter, the striker’s efforts caused Liverpool plenty of trouble at the back throughout the game and ultimately led to the visitors' demise by effectively setting up the third goal.
Caught out by Livermore’s deflected shot, a spooling ball that lifted overhim and into the far corner. Had little else to do until Hull’s second, which was not helped by his defender’s lack of ability to clear the ball, but the Belgian could have done more to get a hand to the ball.
Got fewer chances to get forward as he would have liked and the Hull attackers kept close the England international, this pressure leading to one or two clumsy errors. Left acres of space in the build-up to Hull's third, allowing the hosts to finish off the game.
Starting his second consecutive game following a decent performance in the recent Merseyside derby, the young full-back dealt with Hull’s attackers for most part but there were occasions when his lack of experience did shine through slightly.
Coming in for Agger, the centre-back did well for most of the game but was one of two main culprits for Hull’s second after getting tangled with Skrtel in the Reds' box. Almost repeated this during the run-up to Hull's third.
The Slovakian was a little sloppy, his clearances ineffective and caught in possession one too many times. Getting mixed up with Toure for Hull's second and then heading into his own net for their third topped a terrible afternoon for the defender.
Coming back into the fray, Moses was out to impress and might have asked a bit more from himself. Not to say that the attacker offered nothing on the offensive but just needed a little more conviction. Was partially at fault, too, for the opening goal, losing the ball that lead to Livermore’s deflected shot.
Got his team back on par with a perfect free kick into the bottom corner after whipping it round the Hull wall. The Reds’ captain looked solid and confident throughout.
Battled hard in midfield as the anchorman and kept Liverpool in motion, although the Brazilian did lose possession a little too easily at times.
As energetic as ever but with no real end result. The midfielder lacked a bit of spark and never looked too confident in the 50-50s.
Another who needs to impress manager Rodgers was Sterling and looked very active during the course of the game, getting Liverpool into good positions.
Missed the usual help from partner Sturridge, as well as the creativity of Coutinho, leading to a tepid performance by his high standards. The striker had the odd shot on target but Hull constantly recognised his threatening behaviour and quelled his advances for the most part.
