Could do little about the goal but made some smart saves in the second half.
Hugely uncertain at times and looks far from ready to claim a first-team place even from the ageing Carragher.
Forced to take on more than usual due to Coates' reluctance but did well in a long-running battle with Dempsey.
Got forward well but allowed Riise to go past him too easily for the visitors' opener.
Showed the ability which makes his injury troubles all the more frustrating. Provided some fine crosses for Carroll.
Struggled to take charge of midfield but was withdrawn at half-time meaning an FA Cup final starting berth surely awaits.
Scores regularly when starting but had few opportunities to move in behind thanks to his team-mates' inability to pick a pass.
One of the Reds' more encouraging performers. Attempted to make things happened and showed an eye for a pass on several occasions.
Misplaced numerous passes and gave away needless fouls in attempts to be tenacious in retrieving possession. A poor performance.
Looks a spent force and was no different here, even when moved to a central position late on.
Definitely looked like one of the hosts' more senior players as he led the line and did well to create chances whilst feeding on scraps.
Flapped at a first-half cross to almost concede but handled well in the face of rare Liverpool attacks.
Did not face an opponent with the pace to trouble him in Maxi and gave a suitably calm performance.
Provided the cross which led to the Fulham goal and marshalled Kuyt excellently in the first half.
Comfortable against Kuyt when the Dutchman moved to a central position in the second half and only looked troubled when challenged by Carroll.
Beaten by Carroll in the air several times but made a vital stop on the line from a Shelvey shot.
Always intelligent on the ball in a deep role and rarely wasted a pass.
Had a chance taken off his toe by team-mate Pogrebnyak in the first half but showed some nice touches at times.
A disciplined performance which showed the sort of experience and ball recycling skills his former club sorely lacked in the middle tonight.
Continued his fine form with a performance full of invention and running.
Rarely truly threatened the cool-headed Aurelio who closed the Irishman's options brilliantly.
Saw less of the ball than Dempsey and struggled to really find opportunities to shoot.
- 1 B. Jones
- 38 J. Flanagan
- 23 J. Carragher
Held the ball too long at times after coming on but rarely challenged.
- 49 J. Robinson
Played on the right for the whole of the second half and saw his threat entirely dampened thanks to Riise's intelligent decision to force him onto his weaker foot.
Lifted the crowd upon his arrival and provided one cross which Stewart Downing would do well to learn from in his short cameo.
