Had very little to do bar watching Steve Sidwell's first-half header go agonisingly wide.
Had linked brilliantly with his compatriot Tevez as the striker dropped out wide in search of the ball. An industrious presence before he was subbed on the hour mark with an injury.
Dealt with everything thrown his way and picked the right passes from the back as City dominated possession.
Worked well with Silva down the left and consistently forced Duff onto his weaker foot when challenged one-on-one. An intelligent performance.
The least busy of City's two centre-halves but did well when called into action by rare moments of Fulham threat.
Drove forward with the ball and battled hard up against a determined Fulham midfield. Deserved to be on the winning side having worked so hard.
Energised the hosts' attack and took both his goals brilliantly. The second, a deft chip when in one-on-one, was particularly delightful.
Moved to right-back after Zabaleta's withdrawal but had been practically playing that position all day given his lack of attacking threat. Could not recreate his performance against Arsenal.
Unlucky not to provide an assist with a perfectly legal sliding tackle in the second half. Did not have as much impact on City's threat going forward as he might have liked but never shirked a challenge.
His shot allowed Silva in to open the scoring early on but, apart from a couple of impressive flick-ons, the Bosnian was quiet from then on.
Harried Fulham's defenders relentlessly and deserved a goal. Unfortunately the ball would not bounce for the Argentine, but his manager will be just as pleased with his performance.
Should have done better to push Dzeko's early effort further away from goal. Went down too easily as Silva bore down on him to grab his second.
Both of City's goals came from his side of the centre-back pairing - a fact which is indicative of his under-performance in comparison to Hangeland.
Easily prevented Milner having an impact but, bizarrely, could not control Pablo Zabaleta. Dithered on the ball when going forward.
Did well to control Silva's movements onto the left flank but should have followed the Spaniard in for the opening goal.
Marshalled Dzeko excellently and did well not to get flustered as Tevez buzzed around him. One of Fulham's more composed performers.
Did not fear City's physical threat in the middle and dropped into the box to block shots on a number of occasions.
Part of an excellent defensive effort which inevitably tired in the second half. The Fulham midfielder went toe-to-toe with Barry and Garcia but did little with the ball.
Made some darting runs which threatened the City defence but they were too irregular for him to truly provide hope for Fulham.
Attempted to conjure some magic on the break on several occasions but was too easily crowded out. Not a memorable showing from the Costa Rican.
Continually cut back onto his wrong foot instead of attempting to swing in beyond Gael Clichy.
Showed some moments of class but spent too long skulking around the pitch berating his team-mates - who were putting in significantly more effort.
