Tim Howard: 5/10
Everton's goalkeeper was rarely involved, only having to make two further saves after the goals he shipped. He was solid enough on crosses but perhaps could have stood his ground for Suarez's first strike.
Seamus Coleman: 6/10
Coleman was at fault initially for Liverpool's first, committing to a 50-50 only to come off second-best to Jose Enrique. The Irishman did recover from this lapse and whilst never seeming entirely in control at the back, he looked dangerous roaming forward, linking up well with Steven Naismith.
Leighton Baines: 8/10
Not his best game for Everton, but Baines was still one of his side's top performers. He created six chances, double as many as any other player on the pitch, all without his left-sided partner, Steven Pienaar. Not helped by Kevin Mirallas' withdrawal.
Phil Jagielka: 7/10
A couple of times he was caught out of position, but Everton's defenders were continually tested with David Moyes enforcing such a high line. Jagielka kept things as organised as possible and continued on with his consistent form as of late.
Sylvain Distin: 6/10
Not as composed as his defensive partner and beaten by Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling on a couple of occasions. He still cleared more than any of his teammates and his pace proved crucial in Moyes' tactics.
Leon Osman: 8/10
The game's top passer, Osman delivered one of his best displays this season and ignited his side's fight-back with a precise strike. One of the standout performers in a fraught midfield battle where few players had time to express themselves.
Phil Neville: 6/10
Tidy in possession in one of his better displays for a while, yet his lack of vision and speed on the ball still restricted his side in such a high-tempo game. His dive was also embarrassing, although he faced it with refreshing honesty in his post-match comments.
Kevin Mirallas: 8/10
A full 90 minutes from the Belgian would have contributed to far more chances for Everton. He was the best player on the pitch in the first period, tormenting young Andre Wisdom, although had to be replaced at the break, injured after a poor tackle from Suarez.
Steven Naismith: 7/10
Naismith finally arrived in Everton colours, grabbing the vital equaliser late in the first half. He took up dangerous positions throughout the game, moved intelligently and seemed to revel in the big-match atmosphere.
Marouane Fellaini: 6/10
Everton's second Belgian caught the eye with some crafty chest control, yet despite his crucial assist, his touch was generally clumsy, his passing wayward and too often he lost possession. Certainly not as influential as he's been so far this season and did not look fit.
Nikica Jelavic: 5/10
Never stopped moving, but Jelavic was hampered by some excellent marshalling skills from Liverpool's defenders. The lack of Pienaar, and laterally Mirallas, did not help his cause, but he should have done better with a header late in the second half.
Magaye Gueye 4/10
Not a substitution many Evertonians were enamoured by, but Moyes' hand was forced. The Frenchman was predominately a spectator, making just 13 passes in 45 minutes of football.
Bryan Oviedo n/a
Never had time to make an impact, but played in more dangerous balls than Gueye in just five minutes of action.
