Powerless on the first Fulham goal but should have done better on the second and had some uncertain moments with the ball at his feet.
Asked to step into the Fulham half and pass to his midfield colleagues and did so without fuss.
A constant outlet for United down the right, but his deliveries were hit and miss.
Conducted his usual support job down the left flank to Young and put some teasing balls in himself.
Should have scored with a first-half header and did not have much to think about in a defensive capacity. Clattered three Fuham players with heavy challenges.
On hand to thread passes through to the front lines in an efficient outing.
Encouraging display with his crosses causing Fulham to be alert defensively and he ghosted in behind Riether on a number of occasions.
What an impact his goal could have had on United's season. So often United's unsung hero, but it was shouting his name from the rafters until Bent's sucker punch.
Could not play his natural game after being asked to line up on the right. Delivered some tidy passes including the assist for Van Persie, however.
R. van Persie
Fluffed what he would normally consider presentable chances but popped up just in time to demolish the Fulham barriers.
Failed to take responsibility in allowing Sidwell to escape for the first Fulham goal and was denied by a special Stekelenburg save.
Exceptional display from the Dutch international who made some astonishing saves, not least from Rooney in the second half. Helpless on the goals.
Extinguished some United attacks and also led the breakout which promoted the Fulham goal.
More encouraging signs for Roy Hodgson who would have been impressed by Burn's ability to win almost every ball in the air. A true coming-of-age performance.
A return to form the maligned Dutchman who defended well with a series of blocks and interceptions.
One brave first-half block at the feet of Van Persie epitomized the Fulham display.
Acquitted himself well on his Old Trafford return by patrolling the right part of midfield.
Scored a well-taken volley but put out a number of fires in midfield otherwise with his ability to hassle and harry and force United wide.
Only played the first half but worked very hard and could have made a second through his brave breakaway in the lead up to Richardson's chance.
A tireless, disciplined display from the German. His through ball for the first goal was sublime, and he carried Fulham forward time and again with assuredness.
Was prominent in both boxes with blocks and one end and should have put Fulham 2-0 up on the break at the end of the first half.
Intelligent breaking-up capabilities demonstrated by the Dane who patrolled the area in front of the back four.
Slotted in for Rafael as United sought forward momentum but was caught wrong side in the build up to the equalizer.
Certainly illuminated proceedings with some moments of great quality. Effective display and had a key hand in both goals.
Thrown on to effect the match and tipped the numbers game in United's favor in the Fulham box.
