Did well when called into action particularly in making a desperate double save in the second half to keep his side in it.
Ensured that Liverpool fans don't long for the return of Jamie Carragher with a calm performance at the back.
Solid when under rare pressure but failed to track a Graham run which almost saw the striker touch the ball in from close range.
The left-back has looked increasingly comfortable in a Liverpool shirt and put in another assured performance.
A solid showing from the right-back. As willing to support the attack as ever and reassuringly solid in defence.
A poor performance from the midfielder saw him rewarded with a half-time substitution. Henderson's talent is undoubted but his potential to flourish in an unfamiliar right wing role is yet to show.
The winger replicated several of his previous performances for the Reds in looking threatening but failing to provide the killer pass on several occasions.
Did little to show that he could make the absence of Steven Gerrard go unnoticed and had to be careful after an early yellow card for a petulant clip on Allen.
Outnumbered in midfield by the opposition but showed good workrate and executed several late runs into space to drag defenders out of position.
A real threat in the air but hampered by a lack of support throughout. Should have done much better than to hit the bar from 6 yards early on. Replaced by Craig Bellamy on 75 minutes.
As busy as ever and always willing to take possession but frustrated by a brilliant Swansea defence.
Looked the only Swansea player feeling the pressure after kicking the ball out of play on three occasions. Despite constant possession for the hosts had very little to do until 2 world-class saves in the last 5 minutes kept the Swans in it.
Part of an imperious defensive combination which, despite at times struggling to cope with Andy Carroll, continually won the second ball.
Showed ambition to get forward when given the opportunity but at times struggled to stop the combined threat of Downing and Enrique.
Comfortable throughout and did brilliantly to stop Dirk Kuyt when in on goal late on.
Was troubled little by a poor Henderson performance in the first half and kept to his task well under the pressure of Dirk Kuyt in the second.
Worked hard for his team and looked threatening on the counter. Had a good chance to put the Swans ahead in the second half but couldn't beat an onrushing Reina.
Worked hard in a committed midfield but should have done much better when skying a late chance in front of the Kop.
An impressive showing from the Swans winger. A constant threat on the left hand side of midfield and carved out Swansea's best chance after beating his man and providing a dangerous inswinging cross.
Another in a long list of good performances from the young midfielder. Controlled the Swansea midfield and showed a keen eye for releasing others into space.
Closed the spaces between defence and midfield and helped to frustrate the hosts on numerous occasions.
Worked hard as a lone outlet for the Swans but will regret not gambling on a Routledge cross which passed everyone in the first half.

Had little time to link with Luis Suarez but created an urgency that Liverpool had thoroughly lacked beforehand.
Improved on Henderson's showing on the right but dithered when through on goal in the second half and allowed the Swans' defence back in.
