Fulham's best efforts were not on target so he didn't have a huge part to play.
The more uncertain of the two centre-backs. He spooned a clearance right to the feet of Richardson for Fulham's best chance.
Not troubled defensively and was a constant outlet on the right. Accurate delivery all game long.
City's defensive leader in the absence of Vincent Kompany. Assured, calm and rarely made to look uncomfortable. Crowned it all off with a goal.
Could have scored a goal in either half but was denied by Stockdale. Typical showing with plenty of entries to the opposition third.
Made some decisive bursts from midfield to instigate City chances and commanded the midfield area before smashing in a late fourth.
Played a key part in the goals and could have had another couple himself. Very good display from the England man.
An exquisite goal midway through the second half brought a hat-trick for the captain. His other two were from the spot. Domineering display.
Had one brilliant chance in the first half but was denied by Amorebieta. Won the second penalty and occupied Fulham through his clever use of space all afternoon.
Charged with taking City's set-pieces but didn't feature much in open play until Fulham went down to 10. Set up Toure's third.
Did well to put himself between the ball and Amorebieta in winning the first penalty but had precious few chances to speak of. Missed one bizarre late opportunity.
Made some spectacular saves but was helpess on the goals.
Could just about cope with Negredo in the one-on-one battle but too slow to set about City's attackers with any sort of effectiveness.
Had a good first-half chance when playing in midfield and was shunted to right-back after Amorebieta's red. Great goal-line clearance from Demichelis.
Was probably Fulham's most effective player in an attacking sense; almost scored and set up a great chance for Riether.
Given a tough examination by Milner and Zabaleta. Uncomfortable all afternoon.
Shifted across to centre back when Amorebieta was sent off but did not fare any differently there than he did at right-back.
Inept display from the Venezuelan. Gave away two clear penalties for which he saw red. Partly made amends with a brilliant goal-line clearance.
Got his foot in to block and intercept in the first half but didn't feature much on the ball in his own right.
Put himself about the midfield with a feisty display and even popped up in the City box with a chance. Gave up a bizarre late chance to Negredo inside his own box.
Barely featured and was withdrawn early in the second half.
Did well to lead the line in a desperate team, coming short when needed. Could have scored with a bit more composure.
