Rarely tested as West Brom's new-look attack failed to fire, but made decent saves to deny Anichebe and Anelka.
With no orthodox winger to defend against he was free to bomb forward, and he did so with drive and discipline.
Troubled by Anichebe's physicality if not his skill, but the visitors' lack of attacking invention kept his workload manageable.
Robbed too easily by Anichebe on one occasion, but otherwise performed his defensive duties diligently.
Generally marshaled his defense well and looked to be progressive on the ball. Got turned too easily by Anichebe after the break, and was let off by the Nigerian's poor finish.
Looked tidy enough on the ball but too often seemed to be on a different wavelength to Ruiz, Kacaniklic and Berbatov.
Put in his usual shift, winning and recycling possession to ensure his team won the midfield battle.
Fulham's biggest threat in a sterile first half. Ran at his full back with pace and conviction every time he got the chance, and linked up well in the opposition half, even if his final ball was wayward at times.
Knitted everything together in the midfield, winning tackles and distributing sensibly. Took his goal well, too.
It wasn't his day, but he never stopped trying. Twice he found the net to be denied - correctly - by the assistant referee's flag, as well as narrowly missing with a flying kick from a Ruiz cross that would have been one of the goals of the season. Not at his most inspired, but always a pleasure to watch.
Drifted in and out of proceedings, but grew in influence in the second half as West Brom went for broke. The quality of his deliveries from the right twice nearly allowed Berbatov to get on the scoresheet. His day ended in agony when he was stretchered off in injury time.
Made a very good save to stop Berbatov making the game safe, and could do little about Sidwell's volley.
Dealt with Fulham's attacking interplay relatively well in the first half, but had more problems when West Brom pushed up in search of an equalizer after the break.
Unsurprisingly had little chemistry with Amalfitano going forward on the right flank, and Kacaniklic kept him more than occupied defensively.
Troubled by Berbatov's movement on occasion, but made no major mistakes and wasn't directly responsible for the goal. Popped up with a towering header in injury time to level things up.
Didn't get close enough to prevent Ruiz swinging in some very dangerous crosses from the right, and his lack of pace was also a problem at times.
Assured on the ball, but sometimes gave away silly fouls which broke up the play and occasionally put his side in danger.
A mixed debut. Wayward passes were interspersed with dangerous crosses and always underpinned by a good work ethic until Sinclair replaced him in the second half.
Was his side's only threat in the first half with speculative efforts from range, but couldn't find an equalizer. Played one good pass in behind which Anichebe wasted. His corner provided the late equalizer for McAuley.
Provided an effective shield for the back four until he was withdrawn just after the hour.
A 'handful', as they say. Troubled Hangeland and Senderos in the air despite having next to no service, and did well to generate a chance for himself after the break, but his finishing was poor.
Showed no real flashes of his undoubted talent as he eases his way back into action. Defended diligently in the first half and linked up reasonably well without ever looking a threat.
