Player Rankings: Fulham v Manchester United

Here’s how I scored the lads for yesterday’s momentous victory against United.

Schwarzer – 8/10
Kept United at bay with a string of excellent stops in the second half. Demonstrated he truly is world class, if we needed any reminding.

Paintsil – 7/10
A great display – and wonderful to see the big smile back on his face during the customary lap of honour.

Hughes – 7/10
A huge relief to see him in the line-up, there having been doubts whether he would be fit, and was his usual reliable self.

Hangleand – 8/10
One word: awesome. I don’t rate our chances of hanging on to him in the summer but he is, without doubt, one of the best defenders to ever pull on a Fulham shirt.

Konchesky – 7/10
As strong and as solid as ever. Didn’t give United much room to move down the right flank.

Dempsey – 7/10
Strong, committed, fearless.

Murphy – 8/10
What a season he is having! With the departure of Bullard, Murphy is free to pull all the strings in midfield and is clearly relishing the opportunity. A fantastic display.

Etuhu – 7/10
Getting better with each game and his understanding with Murphy is improving all the time.

Davies – 7/10
A typical Davies-esque performance: full of running and energy, topped off with some superb passes and a fierce shot which VDS did very well to stop.

Zamora – 7/10
Only the cheating hands of Scholes prevented him from getting a very well deserved goal. Was a constant thorn in United’s side…all he needs now are some more goals.

Johnson – 7/10
The man never stops running! Caused United’s back four all sorts of problems and combined well with Gera for the second goal.

Substitutes
Dacourt – 6/10
Came on late but gave a solid performance

Gera – 7/10
A masterstroke by Hodgson, as it turned out. You will struggle to see a better taken goal. Excellent stuff.

Kamara – 6/10
Not much time to make an impression but ran his heart out for the cause.
