First half quick analysis

Mignolet: Made one fantastic stop at 0-0 and has been excellent at launching counter attacks.

Johnson: Sloppy on the ball, like too many others, and not enough decisiveness in the final third.

Flanagan: Working hard and offering a wide option, but doesn't have the technique to always beat his man.

Skrtel: Solid so far, other than letting Maiga in behind him once.

Sakho: Beaten once in the air for Maiga's header, but other than that has been very solid.

Allen: Winning the ball back, recycling possession regularly and keeping the tempo going. Good game.

Gerrard: Too sloppy in possession and not having enough of an impact in breaking the Hammers down.

Coutinho: Dropping deep to get the ball and looks the Reds' best bet to cut West Ham open.

Henderson: Some good runs off the ball but no real end product yet.

Sterling: Making some excellent runs behind the defence, but missed one great chance to score and needs better concentration at the moment of shooting or passing.

Suarez: Busy as ever and always looking to link quickly around the edge of the box. Shooting has been a little off-form so far.

Second half quick analysis

Mignolet: Nothing he could do about the goal. Played well all game.

Johnson: A poor all-round game which was saved in part by an excellent cross for the all-important third goal.

Flanagan: Defensively sound, lacking in attack.

Skrtel: A little unlucky with the own goal but Liverpool contribute to their own problems at the back.

Sakho: A revelation on his return to the side. Has to stay in the XI.

Allen: Best game in probably close to a year. No coincidence it comes when he reverts to his holding role.

Gerrard: Played well in parts but lax in possession. Injury will be a concern ahead of Christmas fixtures.

Henderson: Improved after the break and was heavily involved in a lot of the buildup play.

Coutinho: Excellent game all-round, constantly pressed and probed.

Sterling: Showed flashes of his ability but needs to be more decisive in the box.

Suarez: Won the game again late on. Showed great quality throughout the 90.
