Not tested all that regularly by a surprisingly wasteful Liverpool attack. Beaten all ends up by the Suarez chip which hit the bar and beaten twice by Gerrard from the penalty spot, though he could do little about either.
Assured in the air but troubled by the trickery of Suarez on the ground. Fared better against Sturridge.
Sterling's tendency to occupy the opposite flank meant he didn't really have a direct opponent and he never had to fully extend himself. Well protected by Downing.
On hand to score the controversial equaliser after Carroll had pressured Mignolet into dropping the ball. Otherwise delivered his usual combination of inconsistent technique and muscular play.
Did OK against the most prolific strike partnership in the league, although he was helped by the unwillingness of Suarez and Sturridge to pass to each other in dangerous positions.
Dovetailed well with Carroll and seemed determined to hurt his boyhood club. Could not score but hassled the Liverpool midfield effectively.
Worked hard to disrupt Liverpool's passing rhythm in midfield, but had little influence going forward.
Gives everything on the pitch but doesn't seem to have a forward thinking pass in him.
Still a bizarre choice as a winger and never really troubled Flanagan, though he carried out his defensive duties reasonably well.
Had excellent moments but his crossing from open play never found a man, though his set-piece deliveries were occasionally dangerous.
It's clear why Rodgers didn't want him - he's about as subtle as a sledgehammer - but he caused the Liverpool defence more problems than just about anyone this season. Held the ball up well, dominated his aerial duels, brought people into play and pressured Mignolet (unfairly?) in the build-up to Demel's goal. Unlucky to only find the crossbar with another towering header.
Perhaps fouled by Carroll in the build-up to Demel's equaliser but equally perhaps should have been stronger. Was otherwise largely solid, though West Ham did not test him often enough.
Marshalled the defence as well as he could in the face of the Carroll bombardment.
Troubled by the physical presence of Carroll and gave away a couple of needless free-kicks, but made no decisive errors.
Not given too much to think about by Diame and got forward to provide an attacking outlet. Arguably fortunate to win Gerrard's second penalty.
Bombed forward at very opportunity but tracked well by Downing, who also gave him something to think about going the other way.
Even in his twilight years he retains the ability to be a match-winner, and his contribution was crucial here. His passing was incisive from open play and both of his penalties were dispatched nervelessly. Has never won the Premier League title and, on the strength of this display, clearly believes this is his season.
No one in the Premier League appears to know how to deal with his combination of pace, skill and intelligent movement off the ball. His final ball let him down here though.
More threatening in the first half than the second, his through balls dangerous and frequent on the counter, but this was not his most influential day. Hauled off at the break.
Used the ball intelligently and battled well but could not affect the game in the final third.
Not possessed of the golden form of a few weeks ago and was far less threatening that Suarez, even though he did manage to sting the palms of Adrian in the second half.
Had two chipped attempts which hit the crossbar and forced Adrian into a number of saves but was unusually wasteful, as well as needlessly selfish at times.
