It was a real mix of performances in Liverpool's line ahead of midfield.
Stewart Downing put in a very hard-working shift, tracking the dual threat of Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar going towards his own goal, but on the ball offered comparatively little in the opposite direction.
He beat Baines for skill a couple of times, but delivered no quality balls into the box and failed to link up well enough with Daniel Sturridge.
Henderson again worked hard and was involved in most of the Reds' play going forward, with his energy and ability to pass first-time a welcome change to the tempo for most of the match, but he was a little off with his passing at times in terms of accuracy. It was a little surprising when Henderson was substituted, but a change in system was needed for the Reds to try and win the game.
Philippe Coutinho was certainly the most technical and creative of Liverpool's side again, showing great craft to spin away from Leon Osman in the first half on a number of occasions. The second half saw him play the best couple of passes, as Sturridge had a couple of chances to score, but ultimately he couldn't find the right finish himself from a couple of shots of his own.
Frequently Everton had to resort to fouling the Brazilian to stop him, but there wasn't the consistency from the team in getting Coutinho on the ball to open up the Blues regularly enough.
