Was untested for much of the match, rarely forced into saves despite Liverpool's superior possession, and was powerless to stop Suarez's close-range header. Did brilliantly to race out of goal and tackle Suarez when the Uruguayan was clean through.
Very active down the right flank, exploiting the space left behind Enrique. Linked well with Mata, then Moses, ahead of him. Kept Liverpool's left flank under wraps. Solid and effective.
Largely untroubled, forming a solid partnership with both Terry and Cahill. Liverpool's sustained possession meant the danger was always ahead of him, which played to his strengths. A threat on set pieces.
Largely dealt with Johnson's threat well in the first half, though was rarely troubled. Liverpool's change in shape in the second half saw him match up against Sterling, competing well. Got forward with more frequency, worrying Wisdom.
Had a mixed evening on his return from suspension, grabbing a goal before leaving the pitch on a stretcher after half an hour. Gave Agger the slip to power a header past Jones for Chelsea's opener, and had shown signs of his leadership and authority before then.
J. Obi Mikel
Starved Gerrard and Suarez of space in hole, closing gaps and stifling their influence, but didn't use the ball especially well, passing backwards and sideways. Should have scored but kicked only air when six yards out from goal. Lost Carragher for Liverpool's equalizer. Gave away a lot of fouls, chopping down players.
Drifted in and out of the match with a less consistent threat than Mata or Hazard. Could have given Chelsea an early lead, racing onto Hazard's through ball, but he put too much power into his attempted dink. Replaced by Moses with 15 minutes remaining.
Showed his final third threat in bursts, playing Oscar in for an early chance. Should have doubled Chelsea's lead but hit his volley wide when in space in front of goal. Looked dangerous, with his speed a particular worry for Carragher, but didn't play on that weakness enough.
Played well, orchestrating Chelsea's attacks. Look very dangerous coming inside off the right flank and onto his wonderful left foot. Should have doubled Chelsea's lead after racing onto Oscar's through ball, nutmegging Carragher only to blast the ball over the bar. Produced a trademark pin-point cross from which Terry headed Chelsea into the lead.
As busy as ever in midfield, and has formed a solid, central midfield wall alongside Mikel that is incredibly tough to break through. Played Suarez onside for Liverpool's equalizer, and didn't contest the header with the Uruguayan.
For all Chelsea's attacking talent, the Spanish forward was given few chances to score and carved out none for himself. He was quiet until subbed with 10 minutes remaining. Had a near-post header well saved by Jones. Showed flashes of his old acceleration, but was largely ineffective.
The back-up keeper was largely solid, producing a fine save to deny Torres' near-post header. Not always as commanding as he should have been on set pieces, but powerless to stop Terry's bullet header.
Lost Terry for the Chelsea captain's opener, allowing him a free run at Mata's cross. Used the ball well, stepping up and carrying the ball out of defense. More comfortable in a back four, bailing out his defense.
Worried by the speed of Chelsea's attack in transition. More comfortable on set pieces. Less composed on the ball than the centerbacks either side of him. Lost Mikel to flick Suso's corner onto the head of Suarez for Liverpool's equalizer.
Brought a lot of width down the left flank, but rarely got the better of Azpilicueta, being forced inside. Frustratingly flagged offside unnecessarily on several occasions. Used the ball well and brought solidity down the left. Had a shot well saved by Cech in the final moments.
Was a bit more penetrative in the final third than Enrique, but his final ball often let him down. Left quite a lot of space behind him for Hazard to exploit, forcing Wisdom to cover. A stricter referee might have sent him off for his elbow on Oscar. Moved to left back in the second half.
Played well in the first half, showing confidence and composure. Often forced out wide to cover Johnson. Played a weak header back towards Jones that Hazard almost intercepted. Shifted to right back in the second half and was worried by the overlapping runs of Bertrand. Looked good going forward.
Used the ball quite well, retaining possession and dictating his team's measured control of the match in the first half. Probably didn't do enough offensively, using the ball quite conservatively, and was sacrificed in the second half as Liverpool pushed for an equalizer.
Lined up much more centrally than he has done in the past, allowing Enrique to bomb down the left flank. Was quiet as a result in the fast half, but perked up the second when he moved to the wing, committing player and running at defenders, proving a lightening-quick threat.
Worked hard but wasn't hugely influential, came into the match more offensively as Chelsea pushed forward. Much of his best work was done in his own half, pressing Chelsea, tracking back, covering space, blocking shots.
Showed for the ball, fought to find space, providing an out for his center backs. Contributed to Liverpool's good first half possession, but regularly lingered on the ball too long, losing the ball and allowing Chelsea's spring-loaded attack to counter.
Struggled to get into the game, with Ivanovic and Terry, then Cahill, repelling him. Dropped deep but was swarmed by Mikel and Ramires. His teammates carved out few chances for him, but was in the right place to grab Liverpool an equalizer, heading in from close-range. Could have got a winner but was tackled by Cech.
