Liverpool huffed and puffed but failed to break-down a defensive West Ham United side at Anfield today.
Playing all the football, Brendan Rodger’s side had a goal by Sturridge ruled out for offside and a nailed-on penalty on Steven Gerrard denied by the referee.
In the end, Liverpool had to settle for a 0-0 draw.
It keeps them clear in 7th place, outside the top four but the chase for 5th place and Europe is still very much alive.
Had to make a few saves in the 2nd half, was solid throughout.
Saw plenty of the ball, contributed well going forward.
Composed in defence, marshalled the backs well.
Made one great block to prevent a Cole goal, looked assured.
Linked up well with Coutinho and Suarez, class full back.
Made some good interceptions including a goal-line clearance, allowing Gerrard play a more advanced role.
Was always involved in the midfield action.
Dominated the match with his passing and attacking runs, should have had a penalty and had a shot blocked on the line.
Ran at the packed defence time and again, tried his best.
Was well-shackled by Collison, bit wasteful with the ball, still a huge threat.
Went off inside 35mins due to illness.
Came on and had a goal wrongly ruled out for off-side, did ok.
