Not a fault for the goals. Had a decent game, his handling and kicking were good.
Was OK defensively a week after coming back from a head injury. Got forward as much as he could and provided the Black Cats with a decent outlet on the left.
Poor defensively, he struggled with Zamora all afternoon particularly with his physical presence which he had no answer for. Moved up front midway through second half.
Had a better game than his defensive partner but was caught cold for the Fulham goals. Was good in the air against Zamora and Gudjohnsen. Put his body on the line a few times for his team but had a nightmare second half.
Provided the Black Cats with a great outlet down the middle. His distribution was excellent especially as he was man-marked for most of the game. Never shirked away from a tackle and was a thorn in the side of the Fulham defence all afternoon.
Used his skill and trickery to beat his man but his final ball was poor. Led the line well despite size mis-match against Senderos.
Had a decent game, passed the ball really well. Stamped his authority in the midfield with some crunching tackles. Struggled in the second half as Fulham took a grip on the midfield and the game.
Final ball let him down too often but he always looked for the ball and never ducked a challenge. Had a poor second half and was substituted.
Ahmed El Mohamady
Got forward and threatened for the Black Cats, his speed and strength was at times too much for Salcido. Poor defensively.
Always looking for the ball, provided good movement, and tried to support Sessegnon whenever he could. Didn't help his side enough defensively in second half captiulation.
Used the ball intelligently and was good defensively, strong in the tackle. Didn’t look out of place despite only being his third game in the league
Handled and kicked extremely well. His command of his box from corners helped his defenders cope with Sunderland’s dangerous set pieces.
Was perhaps the weak link in the Fulham defence as most of the Sunderland play came down his side of the field. Put in a few rash challenges which could have cost him and the team on another day.
Didn’t have any debut nerves and you wouldn’t think he’d been out for a while. Was dominant in the air as he faced little opposition. Struggled with towards the end due to lack of fitness and game time.
Had a solid game in the Fulham defence, was troubled at times but for the main part he defended well. Tried to get forward to support Davies.
Coped with the pace of Sessegnon extremely well. His positional sense was crucial when Sunderland threatened, as he cut out many passes in his own six yard box.
His crossing was always a danger to Sunderland, switched to the left in the second half to attack Elmohamady and this paid off as he slipped past the Egyptian to score a sublime goal. Good finish for the second as well, made excellent runs.
Made some excellent runs from deep and opened up the Sunderland defence with some pinpoint deliveries to the strikers.
Composed game for the Fulham captain. Didn't see much of the ball in the first half but helped his side dominate the second half with some excellent passing.
Good composed finish for the goal. Made good runs across the Sunderland backline which caused them trouble at times.
Was brilliant up front and gave Onuoha all sorts of problems . His strength holding the ball up was the focal point of Fulham’s attacking play. Had a hand in all three goals gave all the Sunderland defence a game to forget.
Held the ball up and was difficult to pick up. His presence alone made the Sunderland defence adjust their marking which was crucial in Fulham's build up play.
