On hand to make terrific saves from Coutinho and Henderson in the Hull goal and offered an assuring presence.
Held firm on the right side of Hull's back three and went close with a flashing near post header too.
Occasionally struggled one on one with Jordon Ibe but kept Hull's shape well at the back.
Came up with a huge, captain's goal to set the hosts on their way to safety in the fight against relegation.
Kept Hull ticking over in the center of midfield by linking the play between his defenders and attackers. Earned a standing ovation.

Provided a stunning assist for Dawson's goal and was again among the Tigers' best players as his consistent season continues.
Provided some good balls into NDoye early on and forced the Liverpool rearguard to retreat with his dribbling capabilities.
Dictated the tempo of Hull's play with his metronomic passing and also upset Balotelli on occasion with some bruising challenges.
Fine delivery from out wide led to a stream of Hull chances and he also put in a shift as left wing back.
Sought to control the midfield area with snapping challenges and a wide range of passing. Almost scored from a header.
Not his night on a goal-scoring front but did plenty of good work in occupying Liverpool's defenders.
Powerless to prevent the Dawson header and was under pressure from many similar Hull deliveries.
Given plenty of time and space to carry the ball out from the back and dealt with NDoye pretty well.
Gave away a few balls in his own half but was a good attacking outlet and could have provided a late first-half equalizer but for errant finishing.
The marshal of the Liverpool defense was on hand to nod a number of headers away but was posted missing on the Dawson chance.
Peripheral on his left-wing station and aside from a few forays forward, struggled to make an impact.
Had a decent outing in midfield and set up a golden Coutinho chance as well as going close himself on a couple of occasions.
The most dangerous player in red. Constantly hit the byline to get crosses into the box and was a constant source of creativity.
Did his usual job of keeping Liverpool ticking over with short and simple passing as well as blocks and interceptions.
Again, the PFA team of the year nominee was elusive and menacing. Forced a great save from Harper in the first half.
Played in a curious right-back, center back hybrid role and while he was solid in possession he was left exposed one on one.
Static in the Liverpool attack and one misjudged back-heel attempt at goal when other options were available summed his night up.
