Tested by a couple of early efforts (and saved spectacularly from a long-range effort in the second half, despite the award of a goal-kick) but a largely untroubled clean sheet for the Pole. Survived only one scare when getting into a tangle with Chris Smalling.
Slotted in comfortably at right-back and was unflustered throughout. Clearly his height was an asset when defending set-pieces and he even got forward to have a late shot saved by Mark Schwarzer.
Solid as a rock in defence and always in control. The captain attacked the ball with his customary aggression and managed to keep Bobby Zamora quiet.
Was never going to let anybody down again against his former club and this was another polished performance. Produced a couple of
excellent slide tackles and his distribution was impressive.
Looked sharp and combined superbly with Nani down the left flank. Determined in defence and lively when trying to join in the attack. He's a class act when in this form.
His second goal of the season and another display of pace and purpose. Stretched the Fulham defence with his direct running and his seamless return has been a real boost for Sir Alex.
Played some quality passes from midfield but was unable to shoot with his usual venom when presented with a couple of openings from the edge of the box. Shifted to the right flank for a short while before Fabio's introduction but looked more at home in the middle.
