Had little to do until the Swans took the lead, after which he was called upon to make a string of fine saves to deny Johnson, Ruiz and Dempsey in particular. He capped off a fine performance with a superb stop from Dempsey's penalty.
Played superbly alongside Williams to keep the likes of Johnson and Ruiz quiet for the first hour or so. Another impressive display for an ever-improving Swansea defence.
Did well to support Sinclair early on but was forced to stay in his own half as Fulham pressed for an equaliser. He kept Moussa Dembele quiet until the Fulham man was replaced late on.
A stalwart in the heart of defence, denying Dempsey and Ruiz any significant time on the ball.
Kept Dempsey quiet for much of the match, and supported Routledge well down the right flank. He was forced to check his forward play once Fulhma began pressing for an equaliser.
His pace troubled Riise all afternoon, and his delivery was menacing at times. One of the main attacking outlets for Brendan Rodgers' side, Fulham struggled to contain him for much of the match. Replaced by Dyer on 89 minutes.
Played well alongside Gower at the heart of the hosts' midfield. Although he was less sparkling than team-mates Routledge and Sinclair, his passing was assured throughout.
Dictated the pace of the play from the middle of the park. He and Leon Britton retained possession superbly for the hosts, denying the visitors the chance to string some passes together.
Posed a real threat to the Fulham goal with his pace and composure on the ball. His best chance came early in the second half, but he was denied by Schwarzer after some excellent control.
Provided excellent balance to Routledge on the other flank. His shot was turned in to his own net by Dempsey to give the Swans a deserved lead early in the second half.
Made a few impressive saves in the first half, not least to deny Leroy Lita from close range. He was faultless for Swansea's first goal as Dempsey deflected a Sinclair shot beyond his reach.
Impressive display at the back when dealing with aerial balls in to the box, but the pace of Moore and Lita unsettled the big defender at times.
Looked fairly composed alongside Hangeland, but will be disappointed to have allowed Graham space from the corner to seal the victory for the Swans.
Exposed for pace by the lively Routledge, who troubled him all afternoon. He looked dangerous from set pieces but was unable to trouble Vorm with his viscious left foot.
Often exposed by the pace and trickery of Scott Sinclair, and was rarely able to break out of his own half.
Another player who struggled to unsettle a composed Swansea midfield. Replaced by Sa on 79 minutes.
Struggled to make an impact after some fine recent displays as Britton and Gower bossed the midfield. Replaced by Frei on 77 minutes.
Battled well in midfield but was often left chasing shadows as Gower and Britton controlled the flow of the game for the home side.
Unfortunate to deflect Sinclair's shot beyond Schwarzer, the American's miserable afternoon was compounded by his penalty miss late in the second half.
Came close to grabbing an equaliser for Fulham but was denied by the superb Vorm. The former Twente man was unable to get the ball often enough to make a significant impact on the game.
Tested Vorm on a couple of occassions but the impressive Dutch 'keeper denied him. Often seemed isolated as the home side retained possession superbly in the middle of the park.
- 25 G. Tremmel
- 20 F. Bessone
- 16 G. Monk
Almost made an instant telling impact as he rattled the Fulham woodwork just a minute after coming on to the pitch.
Replaced Routledge for the final few minutes as the hosts sealed a hard-fought victory.
Replaced Leroy Lita to great effect for the final 15 minutes as he grabbed the goal to settle the home side's nerves.
- 14 S. Dobbie
- 38 N. Etheridge
- M. Briggs

Denied once by Vorm, then won a penalty for Fulham with a run in to the box only for Dempsey's spot-kick to be saved.
- 17 B. Riise
- 15 M. Gecov
Came on for Simon Davies as Martin Jol switched to 4-3-3, but was unable to break through the hosts' rearguard.
