Had little chance to get to Gerrard’s well-placed free kick that got Liverpool back on level pegging in the first half. Liverpool gave the Scot shots here and there, but he was never properly challenged from open play.
The former Wigan man had few problems going up against Moses and Johnson, not letting much get past him on the left flank.
Helped Davies suppress any threat from Suarez for the majority of the game, allowing the striker shots on goal at a minimum.
Looked to deal well with Suarez for most of it and even had his own excursion in Liverpool’s final third with a header that dropped just a few inches wide of the post.
Had a decent game, but marred his performance by electing to clamber to the ground in the Liverpool box instead staying on his feet when challenged by Lucas, earning a yellow card from Howard Webb for simulation.

Dealt well with Liverpool’s switching wingers confidently, only letting them pass on the odd occasion to carry on the threat. Got shifted up from right-back to winger after the inclusion of Rosenior and looked even better in his more familiar position.
The captain played well and kept Hull moving through the channels before being taken off midway through the second half.
The midfielder put in a solid performance throughout, capping it off with a well-placed goal that put the Tigers back in the lead after Gerrard’s equalizer.
Sitting in the whole in front of the defense, Huddlestone made a decent afternoon of it and didn’t encounter too much trouble until Coutinho came on in the second half and was made to work a bit harder. Put the game to bed by forcing Skrtel into putting the ball in his own net.
Opened the game’s scoring with a fortunate shot that deflected off of Skrtel enough to bamboozle Mignolet and put Hull ahead. Had a reasonable game overall.
Always a threat on the counter, the striker’s efforts caused Liverpool plenty of trouble in the back throughout the game and ultimately led to the visitor’s demise by effectively setting up the third goal.
Caught out by Livermore’s deflected shot and couldn’t reach the ball that lifted over him and into the far corner. Didn’t have too much else to do until Hull’s second that wasn’t helped by his defender’s lack of ability to clear, but could have done more to get a hand to the ball.
Didn’t get too much of a chance to get forward as much as he’d have liked and the Hull attackers kept close the England international, this pressure leading to one or two clumsy errors. Left acres of space in the buildup to Hull's third, allowing the hosts to finish off the game.
Starting his second consecutive game following a decent performance in the recent Merseyside derby, the young fullback dealt with Hull’s attackers for most part, but there were occasions when his lack of experience did shine through slightly.
Coming in for Agger, the center back did well for most of the game, but was one of two main culprits for Hull’s second after getting tangled with Skrtel in the Reds' box, with both defenders failing to clear it and Meyler following up with the goal. Almost repeated this during the run-up to Hull's third.
The Slovakian was a little sloppy in this game, with clearances not being made in an effective manner and getting caught in possession one too many times. Getting mixed up with Toure for Hull's second and then heading into his own net for their third topped a terrible afternoon for the defender.
Coming back into the fray, Moses was out to impress and might have asked a bit more from himself during his time on the pitch. Not to say the attacker didn’t offer Liverpool anything on the offensive, but just needed a little more conviction. Was partially at fault, too, for the opening goal, losing the ball that lead to Livermore’s deflected shot.
Got his team back on par with a perfect free kick into the bottom corner after whipping it round the Hull defensive wall. The Reds’ captain looked solid throughout and put in an overall confident display.
Battled hard in midfield as the anchor man and kept Liverpool in motion, although the Brazilian did lose possession a little too easily at times.
As energetic as ever, but with no real end result. The midfielder lacked a bit of spark and never looked too confident in the 50-50s.
Another who needs to impress manager Rodgers was Sterling and he looked very active during the course of the game, getting Liverpool into good positions to attack from.
Missed the usual help from partner Sturridge, as well as the creativity of Coutinho, leading to a tepid performance compared to those that we know him best for. The striker had the odd shot on target, but Hull constantly recognized his threatening behavior and quelled his advances for the most part.
