The Chelsea No.1 has been under a lot of criticism of late, but was not provided with an opportunity to prove his worth, as he barely had anything to do all game. Might have done better with the low cross that brought Dempsey's goal, and was worryingly reminiscent of the Tottenham goal last time out. A flaw in his make-up perhaps?
Looked great in the first half, and very strong going forward. When the game went to 1-1, however, he was caught out of position and looked a little laboured.
As always, the Brazilian centre-back played with an attacking mentality, lofting a number of decent aerial passes over the visitors' defence. He also did not shirk on his defensive responsibilities, making a number of crucial interceptions.
As expected, the Blues' skipper took abuse from the visiting fans with every touch. Despite this, he put in a captain's performance, winning every defensive header. He was also unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
An average performance by the left-back's standards. Got forward well and made some strong tackles but not an outstanding performance.
Did well before being substituted, and may have a right to feel aggrieved at his manager's decision to replace him.
Another great display from the young midfielder. Closed down everything that came through the centre of midfield and put in a number of solid tackles. Definitely a bright future for this boy.
Did not really provide much in the Chelsea midfield. Had a couple of shots on goal but gave possession away cheaply on multiple occasions.
A good first half from the former Liverpool player, but in the second half he changed back to the more and more familiar Torres, not looking confident at all.
The Spaniard was good today and finished well to score the hosts' goal.
A great performance from Sturridge, causing Riise all sorts of problems down the right wing. Unlucky not to score with a couple of good attempts on goal.
Fantastic performance from the visitors' stopper, who kept his side in it on a number of occasions towards the end of the match.
A strong performance from the centre-half, beating Torres to every header and making no mistakes throughout.
Struggled to deal with Sturridge, but looked better in the second half as Frei began to track back more and support his full-back.
Did well coming forward and also managed to fulfil his defensive duties, keeping Chelsea's left side quiet.
A good display from the former Arsenal man, putting 100% into every tackle and showing good awareness.
In the first half he looked like he didn't want to know, but in the second he was the visitors' best outfield player. Great pace and skill.
A classic performance from the centre midfielder, dictating play for the away side and tracking opposition midfielders.
Showed good strength, but failed to create much or get a shot on target.
Always a spark for Fulham in attack and did really well to meet Ruiz's low cross to score with a perfectly timed run across the face of David Luiz.
Looked Berbatovesque today, with some casual but exquisite control and a good assist.

Came on late for Bosingwa but did not really have time to make an impact.
Came on for Lampard and gave the Blues a better attacking option, driving at the opposition defence a number of times.

Came on late and showed strength to create some half-chances. Could not manage to find a strong partnership with Torres.
