Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as Fulham beat QPR 4-1 at Craven Cottage. Here’s how we rated the players.
Marek Rodák: 5
Barely troubled by Rangers. Probably the keeper’s easiest game in a Fulham shirt.
Denis Odoi: 8
His first-time cross for 1-0 was right on the money – but he was the wrong side of Sam McCallum for a near Rangers miss. For all that, the Belgian’s was a verycompetent performance.
Caught ball watching for the QPR leveller, but otherwise his stature at the back was top drawer.
Tim Ream: 7
He too was ball watching for the Dykes leveller, and wasted a decent goalscoring chance in the first half, but this was more than compensated by his solid performance at the back.
Joe Bryan: 6
Was sound enough up to his forced substitution on 58 minutes, having read the game well down the Fulham left
Jean Michael Seri: 6
Got bogged down a bit in midfield at times, but struck gold to supply an inch-perfect ball for the third Fulham goal.
Harrison Reed: 7
Always a driving force in centre midfield. Rangers could have done with a player just like him to even up the contest.
Ivan Cavaleiro: 6
Lasted just 32 minutes before a suspected groin strain ended his afternoon. Lively without any significant moments.
Harry Wilson 9:
Excellent. Deft touches, control, decent passes and a thorn in the Rangers defence until he got a rest after 77 minutes and made way for Nathaniel Chalobah.
Neeskens Kebano: 7
Should have scored towards the end of the game, but his work on the left and the supply for the goal that restored Fulham’s lead was excellent.
Aleksandar Mitrovic: 9
Fulham’s man of the moment, who scored twice and might have had more. His terrific turn and shot for the opener and a trademark glancing header for 2-1 underlined his quality.
Bobby Decordova-Reid: 7
Was calmness itself to create space before slotting home for 3-1. That goal killed off Rangers. Shored up the right after Cavaleiro’s departure.
Antonee Robinson: 6
Only a cameo but the Rangers defence parted for him to strike a fourth, albeit with the aid of a deflection.
Nathaniel Chalobah: 6
Another short appearance off the bench, but a chance to get minutes under his belt following his return from injury.
Seny Dieng: 6
Could do little about any of Fulham’s goals and kept his side in the game before half-time when he kept out Mitrovic twice in quick succession from close range.
Moses Odubajo: 5
Had his hands full against the lively Kebano in second half as Fulham finished strongly following the introduction of Robinson.
Rob Dickie: 5
Came out second best in his battle with Mitrovic, who made him pay for being slightly off-balance when he held him off to score his first goal, then evaded Dickie for his second goal to turn the match in Fulham’s favour.
Jordy de Wijs: 5
Restored to the side to help deal with the physical battle with Mitrovic, but like Dickie he endured a tough afternoon – which was compounded with a huge deflection from a Robinson shot that wrong-footed Dieng.
Yoann Barbet: 6
Was probably the pick of the Rangers’ defenders. Moved to left wing-back late in the second half.
Sam McCallum: 6
Back in the team after injury and was stiffly tested by the excellent Kebano, who started on the right wing in the first half. Got forward well in a decent 65-minute performance and then watched on from the sidelines as his side conceded three goals.
Dominic Ball: 4
Struggled terribly against the mobility of Seri and Reed in centre midfield. Needlessly booked after just six minutes for hauling back Mitrovic having lost possession in midfield and was treading a red-card tightrope for the rest of the half. Subbed at half-time for Dykes.
Stefan Johansen: 5
Given a warm reception from the home fans but it was a disappointing return to Craven Cottage for the Rangers captain as Fulham won the midfield battle with Seri and Reed coming out well on top.
Ilias Chair: 6
Kept largely in check in the first half but was better in the second after being moved into central midfield as Rangers came back into the game.
Chris Willock: 7
Hit the post with a stinging effort in the first half and set up the equaliser for Dykes with a magnificent through-ball that split the Fulham defence.
Charlie Austin: 6
Struggled up front on his own in the first half as Rangers struggled to get on the ball, but played a major role for the equaliser by playing in Willock. Withdrawn for Andre Gray in the second half.
Lyndon Dykes: 7
Scored an excellent goal to put Rangers back on level turns as he ghosted past Ream to take the ball past Rodak and score from a tight angle. Gave Rangers a focal point in attack and probably should have started the game.
Andre Gray: 6
Blazed over wildly after Chair delivered a ball to him in the box that he really should have done better from.
Jimmy Dunne: 5
Came on for McCallum and Rangers then shipped three goals. Lost Reid for Fulham’s third to seal the win for the Whites.
