Simply powerless to stop both Kasami's outrageous volley and another sublime strike from Sidwell just before half-time. Perhaps could have taken greater command of his area for the goals that followed, while his kicking was poor.
Looked static and flat-footed, especially when Berbatov and Bent combined. Will be hugely disappointed to have conceded from two set-piece situations, while his passing was also poor.
The least troubled of Palace's back four. The right-back has been one of Palace's best performers and kept Kasami quiet down his own flank, while also bringing a hint of adventure going forward.
Showed touches of Iberian poise on the ball, though struggled to influence the game in a meaningful way. Often found himself on the left wing and was replaced by the genuine pace and width of Thomas at half-time.
Like the rest of the Palace team, Moxey often defended well in open play, with the Eagles stunned by two sensational long-range strikes. The left-back largely stifled Ruiz, though his crossing was wayward when he ventured forward.
Opened the scoring with a powerful header, leaping high above Hangeland, though he lost Berbatov for the Bulgarian's goal. A mixed bag from the centre-back, who struggled to contain Fulham in the second half especially.
Was handed his first league start of the season and was a bag of tricks, running at the defence and jinking past tackles. For all his intent, though, he was let down by a virtually non-existent end product.
Was too keen to try and replicate his wonder goal against Sunderland when better options were available. Worked hard in the centre of the pitch, though Palace very clearly lost the battle for possession in midfield.
While Palace may not always look cut out for the Premier League, Jedinak does. Broke up play and devoured loose balls, though lost Senderos for the Swiss defender's goal and used the ball poorly.
Provided the cross from which Mariappa opened the scoring but drifted out of the match after that early contribution. Rarely exposed the Fulham defence before being replaced by Chamakh.
The club-record signing continues to underwhelm. Looks incapable of leading the line in the Premier League and never overly worried the Fulham centre-backs. Mercifully replaced by Phillips.
Back in the starting XI after picking up an injury on the opening day of the season. Largely performed well, though was rarely tested in truth, and might have done better for Mariappa's goal.
Was solid at the back, though never overly worried, and linked well with Ruiz when he strutted forward. Also assisted Kasami's screamer with a floated ball forward.
As is becoming a regular occurrence, the tall Norwegian was easily bested in the air, out-jumped by Mariappa for the opening goal. Was occasionally beaten for pace and too passive with his passing. Replaced at half-time.
Fulham struggled massively to play the ball out from defence, with Senderos a large contributor to that, though the defender scored an acrobatic effort which crawled beneath Speroni.
Produced one of the goals of the season, chesting Riether's long pass before volleying the ball past Speroni from range. An outrageous goal from a player that had struggled to escape Ward's shackles beforehand.
An enormous source of frustration in possession - he saw plenty of the ball but did so little with it - though struck an absolutely sumptuous volley to give his side the lead, the ball dipping in just beneath the crossbar.
Often looked worried by the pace of Bolasie and the overlaps of Ward, though coped quite well. Very fortunate not to give away a penalty for a late challenge on Delaney that was missed by the officials and picked up a booking.
Like Sidwell, Parker was busy on the ball and combative off it, though he failed to feed the offensive talent ahead of him with his sterile, sideways passing. Fulham need him to be more adventurous.
Provided two assists, both from set-pieces, which extended Fulham's lead and put the result beyond doubt. Was less effective in open play, though, and has yet to really fire this season.
The striker came close to joining Palace during the summer, though on this showing, the Eagles might consider it a bullet dodged. Was peripheral to the extreme and missed what few chances came his way. Taken off for Duff.
The brooding Bulgarian has been off the boil this season and struggled to get into the game in the first half. Perked up after the break, however, flicking a header past Speroni to extend Fulham's lead and showed some typically exquisite touches.
Came on at half-time for Campana and offered some semblance of width, though never really got going.
Replaced Puncheon as Palace chased an unlikely comeback. Offered some decent hold-up play, though was largely ineffective and never troubled Stekelenburg.
Entered the fray in place of the ineffective Gayle. Did not fare much better than the former Peterborough man, though was given little service.
