Could do little about West Ham's goals and the rest of his duties were performed with ease. Notably, his one-on-one save against Cole, kept Fulham in with a shout of equalizing.
Kept on top of Sears, which was enough and got forward on several occasions. Solid job by the Mexican who has made the left-back spot his own since his move in the summer.
Played some incisive balls up to the attackers but had a few moments of rash defending.
Was caught wandering and as a result, Piquionne gave West Ham the lead. Did better than his center-back partner in the aerial duels with Cole.
Easy header for Fulham's opener, but lost out to Cole in the air on several occasions. And his mistake led to Cole's goal.
Instrumental in the first half and subdued in the second. Looked frustrated at the lack of attacking options his fellow team-mates provided, but his passing was usually superb.
Superb cross for Fulham's opener but the midfielder insisted on coming inside, which took away his side's width.
His mistake led to West Ham's equalizer. But the midfielder recovered well and won his fair share of challenged in the center before being taken off in the second half.
Excellent at tracking back and showed some neat touches but often left Andrew Johnson isolated in attack.
Ran the line as best as he could on his own but had difficulty in getting past Upson. Was often seen chasing the ball rather than holding it up, or even taking a touch.
Hauled off just after the break to chants of 'you don't know what you're doing' aimed at manager Mark Hughes. The American wasn't as influential, but should have remained on the pitch due to his ability.
Could do little about Fulham’s opener, and was frequently seen lambasting his defense due to poor marking. Looked comfortable though, and held onto the ball well on a zippy Craven Cottage surface.
Between him and Upson, they kept Andrew Johnson under wraps. Although, he and his defensive partner were to blame for leaving Hughes free for Fulham’s goal.
Couldn’t match Parker’s work rate, but he did manage to win a few challenges in the center.
Had trouble with Davies, which is worrying considering he is not one of the quickest wingers in the league. The Fulham midfielder had plenty of opportunities to cross the ball and Gabbidon could not close down quick enough.

Similar to Gabbidon, didn't shut down quick enough and seemed content to play long balls up to Cole from the back. West Ham need to distribute the ball better if they wish to climb up the table.
Had Andrew Johnson’s number from the off. The England international has been criticized for poor marking, and between he and Tomkins, they should have picked up Hughes for Fulham’s opener. But other than that, he did a fine job of tightening West Ham’s defense.
Hassled in the center and provided the cross for Piquionne’s goal. For West Ham’s survival, it’s imperative the midfielder stays fit for the duration of the season.
Had little opportunity to get on the ball and therefore had little chance to shine. Showed decent work rate when tracking back though.
Very quiet other than his goal in the first half. Often left his strike partner Cole isolated.
Didn’t really convince on his first return to the side after his loan spell at Scunthorpe. Was often beaten to the ball by Salcido.
West Ham’s most dangerous player in the opening half, not a big achievement considering the quality of their attacks. But the forward held the ball up well and won his share of headers. Took his goal superbly.
