Could do little about the goal but made some smart saves in the second half.
Showed the ability which makes his injury troubles all the more frustrating. Provided some fine crosses for Carroll.
Hugely uncertain at times and looks far from ready to claim a first-team place even from the ageing Carragher.
Got forward well but allowed Riise to go past him too easily for the visitors' opener.
Forced to take on more than usual due to Coates' reluctance but did well in a long-running battle with Dempsey.
Scores regularly when starting but had few opportunities to move in behind thanks to his team-mates' inability to pick a pass.
Struggled to take charge of midfield but was withdrawn at half-time meaning an FA Cup final starting berth surely awaits.
Misplaced numerous passes and gave away needless fouls in attempts to be tenacious in retrieving possession. A poor performance.
One of the Reds' more encouraging performers. Attempted to make things happened and showed an eye for a pass on several occasions.
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.
Looks a spent force and was no different here, even when moved to a central position late on.
Held the ball too long at times after coming on but rarely challenged.
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.
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.
Beaten by Carroll in the air several times but made a vital stop on the line from a Shelvey shot.
Comfortable against Kuyt when the Dutchman moved to a central position in the second half and only looked troubled when challenged by Carroll.
A disciplined performance which showed the sort of experience and ball recycling skills his former club sorely lacked in the middle tonight.
Rarely truly threatened the cool-headed Aurelio who closed the Irishman's options brilliantly.
Continued his fine form with a performance full of invention and running.
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.
Saw less of the ball than Dempsey and struggled to really find opportunities to shoot.
Battled in the middle and helped kill the game as a contest.
Rattled the post with a fine effort moments after coming on and gave more impetus to the Fulham attack.
