Made good reaction save midway through first period but had precious little to do either side of that. Had no chance with Gayle's goal as it flashed past him.
Got back well to clear Kebe effort off the line and had another comfortable afternoon on the right of the back three. Rarely troubled by subdued Chamakh.
Hardly required in the first half as Jerome did nothing to threaten him or the rest of the backline. A solid if unspectacular display.
Had his moments but was the best of Liverpool's centre-backs. Won plenty of tackles and won the majority of his headed duels with Kebe.
Claimed assists for first two goals and again showed that he can be continued to be utilised further forward should Rodgers require. Assured defensively too.
Worked his socks off as he stepped into Lucas' shoes in the middle of the pitch. Won tackle after tackle and barely misplaced a pass. The Brazilian wasn't missed.
Struggled defensively with wing-back role and conceded the free-kick which led to the consolation goal. Better going forward but final ball was sometimes lacking.
Run across the edge of the box helped create the opener and ran Jedinak from one side of the pitch to the other with regularity. Should have scored when close range effort bounced up onto the crossbar.
Tucked away penalty with competent ease and helped break up play in the middle of the field. Passing sometimes was astray but by no means a bad performance.
Marked Anfield return with a goal and was at his industrious best. Still not fully fit, as disappointing second half showed, but didn't need to be fully firing to trouble Palace defence.
Brilliant run and finish for the second goal lit up Anfield. Partnership with Suarez blossoming all the time. Worked tirelessly to pressure defence.
Had no chance with any of the three goals and saved well in the first half as his goal was peppered. Almost a spectator in the second period as hosts became complacent.
Silly pull on Sterling gave away soft penalty that in the end put game out of Palace's reach. Poor going forward.
Poor header allowed Sturridge run on goal for the second strike. Pace allowed him to stay with Liverpool strikeforce but struggled to impose himself.
Led the defensive effort but was totally outfoxed by Sturridge for the second goal. Otherwise solid.
Lost the ball on too many occasions and allowed Enrique to get round the back of him for the first goal. Showed little going forward.
Troubled Sakho on occasions and saw weak effort cleared off the line by Toure. Substituted at half-time with visitors chasing the game.
Did little to shield his defence and barely got close to Moses. Premier League possibly too much of a step up.
Misplaced passes and failed to support defence enough for a central midfielder. Did best work when on the flanks.
Caused some threat in the opening exchanges but soon faded as game was taken away from the visitors.
Absent without leave for much of the match as he again looked lost. Substituted in the second half after offering little threat.
Skrtel's easy first half was largely down to the lack of threat the former Stoke man showed. Constantly under instruction from his manager, was eventually withdrawn at the break.
Made a difference after half-time introduction. Showed some nice touches and kept the ball well.
Showed exactly what Holloway has been missing with performance full of pace. Will be key in battle for survival.
Scored excellent header and arguably should have had another beforehand. Pace caused problems.
