A virtual spectator for most of the match. Other than picking the ball out of the net after the three goals had nothing to do.
Defended solidly but the two mistakes he badly were ruthlessly exposed, first when he deflected Bale's shot into the net for the opening goal and then when he was bamboozled by Lennon's pace and trickery for the second. Nearly scored the equaliser with a brilliantly worked free-kick.
Completely out-manoeuvred by Walker in the build-up to the opening goal but attacked with intent and rarely caught out by Lennon and Bale.
Commanding in the air in both penalty boxes and comfortably won the battle with Adebayor.
Outfoxed by Bale's flick for the second goal and then stretchered off seconds before half-time after appearing to twist his knee following an innocuous-looking challenge.
Anonymous before the break but far more influential afterwards when the pace and accuracy of his corner kicks caused Spurs huge problems. Subbed with 20 minutes left.
Tenacious and energetic display by the rejuvenated midfielder. Made some excellent runs and would have opened the scoring in the early minutes but for an excellent parry by Friedel.
Showed there is plenty of life in the old maestro by pulling the midfield strings in the second half as Fulham overwhelmed Spurs. Subbed late on.
Far more involved in the second period, when he was a lively link between the midfield and Zamora, after an off-key first half.
Fluffed a brilliant one-on-one opportunity against Friedel before the break and denied a goal in the second period by King's brilliant interception. At the heart of Fulham's second-half comeback with his skill and intelligent movement.
Not everything he did came off but worked like a trojan, shielded the ball well and caused Spurs' two centre-halves countless problems in the second period.
Kept Fulham at bay with seven or eight mighty fine saves either side of Kaboul's own goal. One of the goalkeeping displays of the season.
A poor headed clearance contributed to Fulham's first goal but otherwise read the game superbly and ensured Spurs did not cave in to Fulham's second-half onslaught. Made a brilliant goal-saving interception from Dempsey.
Unfortunate to be credited with the own goal after King's misplaced clearance bounced in off him. Looked a bit confused by the tempo of Fulham's second-half onslaught but hung in well to make some fine interceptions.
Slept-walked through the first half against the initially poor Duff but had to earn his corn after the break as Fulham slammed the foot on the accelerator.
Looked a bit jittery at defensive assignments but his sporadic romps forward were laced with menace. Had a major hand in the opening goal, when he out-paced and out-manoeuvred Riise. Lucky not to concede a penalty when he clearly handled the ball in the box during a late Fulham attack.
R. van der Vaart
Virtually anonymous before he was hauled off after 65 minutes to bring his brilliant run to a shuddering halt.
Produced some fine passes but was far less influential than usual as Spurs struggled to knit together many meaningful moves.
Looked a bit dazed after taking an accidental whack on the nose from Sidwell early on but his commitment could not be questioned as he threw himself into a series of excellent interceptions to maintain Spurs' lead.
Barely touched the ball before or after his brilliant solo goal, in which he bamboozled Baird before belting emphatically past Schwarzer to put Spurs 2-0 up. Sacrificed in the 79th minute as Spurs shored up their midfield.
Appears to have mislaid his mojo after his early season excellence. Heavy of touch and flat of foot as he struggled to provide his team with a reliable focal point.
Claimed the first goal with a slap-shot from an almost impossibly tight angle, although TV pictures showed that the ball had deflected in off Baird on the line. His outrageous flick set Lennon on his merry way for the second. Always looked the most likely source of danger on an afternoon when Spurs created little.

Came on just before half-time and used his experience to support Fulham's attacks and quell the threat on his flank.
Fulham lost a little of their midfield direction after he replaced the exhausted Murphy.

Had some excellent touches, including an exquisite pass to put Dempsey through on goal.
