Commanded his defence well and came to collect the ball when given half a chance.
Kept the clean sheet he would doubtless have been desperate for in his last Merseyside derby. Went out on a high, evidencing all his qualities as a defender and leader.
A classy performance from the Dane. Made sure Victor Anichebe did not get a look in and distributed the ball excellently.
Looked unsure of his touch at times and did not always find his man when in good positions. Did not let that affect his defensive work, however.
Tracked Mirallas well, refusing to be outmuscled by the Everton wideman in their numerous duels. Got forward to good effect.
Unfortunate to be sacrificed as Brendan Rodgers added another attacker to his line-up. Continued his recent run of fine form with a performance full of energy and creativity.
Looked a little over-eager in the opening stages as he clattered into tackles. Noticeably calmed as the game progressed and controlled the midfield excellently.
Battled well in his first Merseyside derby and should have had an assist after providing a wonderful pass for Sturridge to go in one-on-one.
The Brazilian's recovery continues apace. Snapped into tackles like the Lucas of old and passed the ball accurately from his deep position to launch counterattacks.
Did not make a telling contribution in attack but provided good width for the hosts. Substituted late on as Liverpool changed their system.
A source of frustration for Liverpool. Flitted in and out of the game constantly and took too long when presented with an excellent chance early in the second half. Needs to add consistency to his armoury.
Did not have the most difficult afternoon, with Jagielka and Distin clearing up almost everything in front of him.
His crosses and set-pieces were one of Everton's biggest threats and the full-back was rarely troubled defensively.
Gave a classy defensive showing, nipping in to steal the ball on a number of occasions and nullifying Sturridge's threat well.
Worked well with Jagielka to keep Liverpool at bay. Used his pace well to track the dangerous runs from the hosts' midfield. Headed home but saw the goal disallowed for a push.
Worked as hard as ever but was occasionally wayward in his distribution from right-back.
An understated performance from the diminutive midfielder. His team did not control possession but he was intelligent in using the ball at all times.
His battle with Lucas Leiva was one of the highlights of the match and the Belgian will be pleased with his efforts in that regard. Used his frame and quick feet well to trouble the Liverpool defence.
Struggled to find his range but worked hard in the middle of the park to keep things ticking over. Fired a free-kick over in the first half and received no further opportunities to shoot at goal.
A livewire in the opposition half. Kept Liverpool's defence shuffling across with a number of clever exchanges, but didn't get the chance his industry deserved.
Outpaced Liverpool's defenders several times but always looked more threatening on the break than with the ball. A mixed afternoon for the winger.
Needlessly shoved Reina to cost his side a goal in the second half. Fed off scraps all day but still arguably should have done more to trouble Liverpool.
