Report

Anders Lindegaard – The Dane had nothing to do in the first period but was on top form after the break, making three top saves from Andy Johnson and another from Clint Dempsey. Continues to impress whenever he’s given his opportunity.

Phil Jones – A hugely disappointing night for United’s in-form defender-cum-midfielder who could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after a first-minute elbow to the face from Dempsey eventually brought his participation to an end after 20 minutes.

Chris Smalling – An extremely impressive return to his former club and favoured position at the heart of the back four, alongside Evans. Made some vital blocks after the break as Fulham began to enjoy more possession.

Jonny Evans – Another efficient and solid performance from the Northern Ireland international who is growing in confidence with every game.

Patrice Evra – The Frenchman was rarely troubled and he made sure he got forward well to support Nani and later Young in attack.

Antonio Valencia – Another lively display from the Ecuadorian who looked bright in attack and adapted well when he had to switch back to the defence following Jones’ departure. Went close to finding the net when picked out by Nani in the area, but saw his shot blocked by Stockdale. Set  up Berba for United’s fifth.

Ryan Giggs – You begin to run out of superlatives to describe United's veteran star. Ran the show for the Reds in midfield, brilliantly set up Nani for United’s second and claimed a deflected third to make it 22 consecutive seasons of goals in the top flight.
