Rarely tested beyond doing well to hold a powerful Kone effort in the first half.
Back into the swing of things at left-back. Provided his usual attacking menace with some excellent crossing and defended well.
Kept things simple with the ball but defended well down the right-hand side.
Wasteful with the ball for much of the first half but provided a brilliant through ball for Suarez to double the Reds' lead. Went on to score himself after that confidence boost whilst producing his best performance for the club in some time.
Had little to do at the back but marshalled Kone and Di Santo with ease when he needed to.
Looked rock solid in defence as ever and passed the ball well from the back.
Fought brilliantly when challenged physically and passed the ball much more crisply than in recent weeks.
Pushed his team on despite not making any significant attacking contributions. Forced to battle by Wigan's industrious midfield and was well up to the task.
Bullied out of the game in the first half but improved vastly in the second, dragging the Latics' defence everywhere.
Made some dangerous runs and had a blistering shot palmed away by Al-Habsi but was subbed on the half-hour, presumably due to injury.
Another performance of utter genius. Struggled somewhat in the first half, as did the rest of his team, but turned it on the second to score twice and torment the Wigan defence.
Ali Al Habsi
Had little chance with the first two goals but palmed Sterling's shot into the path of Enrique for the third.
Committed some cynical, intelligent fouls to break up Liverpool's flow in the first period. Given the run around by Suarez for much of the second, though.
Should have had an easier afternoon up against makeshift winger Jose Enrique but was regularly beaten on the outside.
Destroyed by Sterling in the lead up to the opener, though wasn't helped by a poor back pass. Seemed to lose his confidence after that and struggled.
Looked so solid in the first half but dragged all over the pitch in the second as the visitors struggled.
Came off second best after a clash with Raheem Sterling and had to be subbed in the first half.
Did a good job getting up and down the left, pushing Wisdom back as much as possible.
Threatened on the break occasionally with his trickery but fought a losing battle against the tidy Wisdom.
Played a large part in stopping Liverpool playing at the start of the game, but was dominated by Gerrard and Allen in the end.
F. Di Santo
Had little to feed on but showed no touches of note to encourage his team to hit him into feet. Anonymous.
Has a few tricks up his sleeve and needed that as he fought an almost lone battle against the Reds' defence. Needed help from his team-mates and did not get it.
Another player introduced when the game was effectively up. Did little to change the flow of the game, which was an almost impossible task to begin with.
Thrown in at the deep end after Watson's withdrawal and failed to cope with Henderson's excellent movement, allowing his midfield foe plenty of time on the ball.
