Had little to do as Fulham failed to register a shot on goal.
Perhaps lucky not to have been sent off for tugging back Bent when the Fulham striker would have been clean through on goal but was defensively sound against Duff.
Was the more composed alongside Collins and handled Taarabt well. Could have been more precise with his distribution from the back.
Often opted to play the ball long which was unsuccessfully held by Maiga on most occasions. Wasn't given much to think about by Bent throughout the game.
Could have ventured forward more often to help out Downing as he was rarely tested by Kasami.
At times, the midfielder felt the wrath of the home support as he lost the ball on the edge of his own box. Opened the scoring with a deflected effort after the breaking having dispossessed Sidwell in central midfield.
Had the beating of Richardson on West Ham's right flank and his delivery was much more precise than Jarvis' crosses from the opposite wing. Should have put the hosts two in front but blazed his shot over from close range. Provided a superb low cross for Carlton Cole's goal.
Failed to see a lot of the ball in the first half and struggled to link up with Maiga. Tried an elaborate overhead kick when he had enough time to chest the ball down and shoot, and his effort was comfortably saved by Stekelenburg. Brought off for Ravel Morrison who was far livelier.
Saw a lot of the ball and West Ham's counter attacks often started through the midfielder but his passes needed to be more accurate to damage Fulham.
Often got the ball in promising areas but his crosses rarely found their target. Could have opened the scoring had Maiga's touch not taken the ball away from his path. A nervous performance which ended with him being replaced by Joe Cole.
The Mali international was often isolated in attack, which did him little favours, but his movement was static and easy to defend against. After a dismal shot which failed to test Stekelenburg, he was replaced by Carlton Cole.
Needed to be alert to Downing's curled effort in the first half and the Dutchman got a strong hand to the shot. Fooled by the deflection on Diame's strike for West Ham's opener and could do little about the hosts' following two goals.
Won almost all of his aerial duels with Maiga and was given little trouble from the West Ham striker's inadequate movement. Should have been alert to Carlton Cole for West Ham's second goal.
Rarely given problems by Maiga but should have picked up Carlton Cole for West Ham's second.
Was caught out by Jarvis on occasions but the West Ham winger failed to take advantage with his deliveries from wide areas. Given more of a problem by Morrison when the 20-year-old was introduced.
Accurate in possession but combined with Sidwell in central midfield, Fulham's lack of pace and urgency allowed West Ham to have a comfortable afternoon.
Rarely got the ball in dangerous areas and had little joy up against Demel. Brought off after 65 minutes for Ruiz.
Was Fulham's brightest outlet but was crowded out by West Ham's defence before he could cause any damage. Linked up well with Ruiz at times when the 28-year-old was brought on.
Had three of Fulham's five efforts on goal which were not blocked and failed to hit the target with each. Another passenger in the visitors' attack.
Struggled to cope with Downing at times and he allowed the West Ham winger too much room to get his crosses into the box - as highlighted by West Ham's second goal.
Dispossessed by Diame which led to the West Ham midfielder scoring the opening goal from the edge of the area. Did not get forward enough to have an impact on Fulham's insipid attacking play. Substituted off for Karagounis.
Could not link up with Taarabt and the striker was subsequently given little service as Fulham opted to start most of their attacks through the Moroccan.
