Just about kept his head above water in the face of constant attacks by the visitors
Made an excellent last-ditch tackle on Downing early on to set the tone for a committed display in the face of wave after wave of red attacks.
Tenacious display by the right back, who defended solidly and supported the attacks with zeal and commitment.
Impressive display by the Frenchman as he justified his manager's continued faith in him.
Flickered only intermittently but was the inspiration behind QPR's fightback with a series of confident runs late on.
Gut suckered into some poor positions by Liverpool's early enterprise but eventually found his feet and demonstrated that he is more than a midfield security guard with some fine touches and runs.
Trapped in a Liverpool-generated hurricane in the first half-hour but never gave up and showed his desire by jumping between Carragher and Henderson to begin his team's fightback with a fine header.
The king of social media offered little in the way of princely action with some hit-and-miss distribution from his right flank station. Booed by a significant section of the home fans when he was subbed.
The whole stadium could feel the anguish of the Frenchman when two blistering drives went narrowly wide of the goal in the first half but everyone could feel his joy when the ex-Red stole a yard and emphatically headed in the equalizer.
Held the ball up well and provided a focal point to the home team's attacks, particularly late on.
Commanding enough for an hour but did not look like saving any of QPR's late goals.
Has barely had a rest this season, and it is starting to show. The Spaniard fell short of the high standards he set in the first half of the campaign with some mixed decision-making and distribution, and his woeful attempted clearance late on allowed Mackie through on goal to score the winner.
Never stopped ear-wagging his teammates or referee Howard Webb as he urged Liverpool on, firstly from center back and then when he moved across to right-back following Kelly's departure. Will be apoplectic that Derry squeezed between him and Coates to head the first QPR goal.
A solid half-hour for Liverpool's impressive right back before he was forced off by injury.
Dominant for 70 minutes but fell asleep late on when Cisse stole a yard and headed in the equalizer, and should have done more to stop the ball getting to Mackie late on.
All-round excellence from the Liverpool talisman, who began on the right of the midfield three before switching into the center after Adam's substitution. He was equally dominating in both roles.
Tenacious and impish in equal measure, he guarded the Liverpool defense like a bull terrier and never stopped snapping at the heels of his opponents.
There were some nice touches from the Scot in central midfield after being recalled to the team but the game also passed him by a little before injury prompted his withdrawal at halftime.
Began like a house on fire as he linked brilliantly with Suarez and Gerrard but flickered only intermittently thereafter.
Got in some great positions across the front line but his touch let him down too often before he scored Liverpool's second
Excellent outside of the box, but not so lethal in it. His link-up play with Liverpool's attacking midfielders was superb and he played a crucial role in the second goal when he wriggled away from two defenders and sent a drive against the post.
- 32 Doni
Filled in capably enough at center back until the late Rangers fightback after replacing the injured Kelly but it was with a truly sensational scissor kick that his contribution will be remembered. Great imagination, stunning technique and even better connection. Not bad for a substitute stopper.
- 38 J. Flanagan
- 6 Fábio Aurélio
Looked a little lost on the right after replacing Adam at half-time. Embarrassingly allowed little Derry to wriggle in front of him for QPR's goal.
- 33 J. Shelvey
Replaced Suarez late on to little effect.
