Fulham's best efforts were not on target so he didn't have a huge part to play.
City's defensive leader in the absence of Vincent Kompany. Assured, calm and rarely made to look uncomfortable. Crowned it all off with a goal.
Not troubled defensively and was a constant outlet on the right. Accurate delivery all game long.
Could have scored a goal in either half but was denied by Stockdale. Typical showing with plenty of entries to the opposition third.
The more uncertain of the two centre-backs. He spooned a clearance right to the feet of Richardson for Fulham's best chance.
An exquisite goal midway through the second half brought a hat-trick for the captain. His other two were from the spot. Domineering display.
Charged with taking City's set-pieces but didn't feature much in open play until Fulham went down to 10. Set up Toure's third.
Had one brilliant chance in the first half but was denied by Amorebieta. Won the second penalty and occupied Fulham through his clever use of space all afternoon.
Played a key part in the goals and could have had another couple himself. Very good display from the England man.
Made some decisive bursts from midfield to instigate City chances and commanded the midfield area before smashing in a late fourth.
Did well to put himself between the ball and Amorebieta in winning the first penalty but had precious few chances to speak of. Missed one bizarre late opportunity.
Made some spectacular saves but was helpess on the goals.
Shifted across to centre back when Amorebieta was sent off but did not fare any differently there than he did at right-back.
Given a tough examination by Milner and Zabaleta. Uncomfortable all afternoon.
Had a good first-half chance when playing in midfield and was shunted to right-back after Amorebieta's red. Great goal-line clearance from Demichelis.
Inept display from the Venezuelan. Gave away two clear penalties for which he saw red. Partly made amends with a brilliant goal-line clearance.
Could just about cope with Negredo in the one-on-one battle but too slow to set about City's attackers with any sort of effectiveness.
Got his foot in to block and intercept in the first half but didn't feature much on the ball in his own right.
Put himself about the midfield with a feisty display and even popped up in the City box with a chance. Gave up a bizarre late chance to Negredo inside his own box.
Was probably Fulham's most effective player in an attacking sense; almost scored and set up a great chance for Riether.
Barely featured and was withdrawn early in the second half.
Did well to lead the line in a desperate team, coming short when needed. Could have scored with a bit more composure.
