- 25 Pepe Reina
Won everything aerially and dominated Long and Odemwingie.
A key part of the Reds' attack in wide areas again but made an error at a crucial time to gift a goal to the visitors.
Can hold on to the ball at times for too long but is always efficient defensively.
Occasionally tried to win things which he had no right in going for and caused the rare moments of uncertainty at the back from which the Reds suffered.
Not yet ready to hold down a central midfield role as proved by his performance. Unfortunate to see his shot cannon back off the bar in the second half.
Quite simply, the Argentine makes Liverpool play better. Involved in several impressive exchanges but failed to find the goal which he seemingly always gets.
Part of a weak midfield which was generally bypassed by the hosts. Misplaced several passes but showed bite in the tackle as always.
Monstrous in the air and showed some fine touches with the ball at his feet. Difficult to see his goal threat at times though.
Back to his best. A creative live wire up front but showed the wasteful finishing after some fine footwork which has characterized his season.
Not the Dutchman's best performance in a red shirt. Sloppy on the ball and struggled to get involved.
Commanded his back four but was let off several times by the hosts' profligate finishing.
The best contribution to the Baggies' defensive effort. Marshaled Kuyt well but did struggle when Johnson doubled up.
Struggled just as much as Olsson at times but did help put in some crucial blocks as the Reds dominated.
Had an incredibly uncomfortable afternoon up against Suarez's trickery and Carroll's aerial threat. Didn't look able to deal with either.
Much of the hosts' attacking threat came down the right as Jones was woefully exposed by Maxi's movement.
Part of an anemic West Brom midfield performance, even against the inexperienced Henderson and Spearing.
Crashed in with several tackles but looked ineffective on the ball.
Subbed in the second half after a hard working performance of little attacking intent.
Denied brilliantly by Reina in the first half before a quiet but disciplined performance.
More involved than his strike partner Long and gave Agger a few moments of discomfort. Took his goal coolly under pressure.
Won a brilliant header to set Chris Brunt free in the first half but struggled otherwise and took the inexplicable decision to turn his back on goal when through late on.
- 32 Doni
- 16 S. Coates
- 23 J. Carragher
- 34 M. Kelly
Had little chance to affect matters in the middle as the Reds pushed the ball wide in search of a goal.
Failed to provide the killer cross which had been asked of him.
Added impetus that had been lacking down the right-hand side.
