Produced a world-class save from Zoltan Gera, shortly before a slip allowed Danny Murphy’s shot to beat him. Couldn’t do much about the other two goals.
Operated on the right of a back three at the start; his endeavour’s never at fault but the Scot’s not as well suited to the centre-back role as Carrick.
Composed in central defence, despite the circumstances. Generally handled Zamora well but allowed the striker two touches to tee up Duff for Fulham’s third.
Ritchie De Laet
Had a reasonable first half as the only natural defender in the back three but was withdrawn soon into the second period as Sir Alex shuffled his pack.
The Ecuadorian found opportunities to run at defenders few and far between. When he did get a cross in, Fulham’s defenders dealt with the ball easily.
Won the ball well at times but like the rest of United’s midfielders he wasn’t able to provide much attacking thrust.
Gibbo thrives when he can run into space and push forward but Fulham’s midfielders suffocated the centre of the park. Unable to make an impact.
