I think Ream was out of position several times for once. I'll chalk it up to being paired with Odoi then Kalas, but still, he was magnificent in terms of attack and recovering in defense.

However, my match ball goes to Stefan Johansen. Another unsung hero performance. He slotted in some great passes, maintained composure and was in every single one of our attacks. He didn't have the comfort of Cairney, and had to stay on his toes for Norwood's inconsistent passing quality. StefJo is box to box as can be and he just put in such a worker's performance.

Ream for me. Thought Johansen had a poor game in all honesty. Worked hard though.

From Gentleman Jim's commentary it sounded that Ream was MotM, with Bettinelli putting in a very sound performance (referenced as 'commanding his area well', sweeping when facing danger).  But my sort of MoM would be G Jim himself for "Pulis has always been a gesticulator."

Tough one, this week.  Had to go with Norwood.

Bettinelli for me. Kebano was brilliant too but he only got 10 mins.

I'd go for that. Pulis has got that extra 'something' which imo makes him extremely unlikeable. The result could't have happened to

a more deserving git.

I went for MacDonald.  A captain's performance.  He was everywhere, putting in short passes, long passes, timely tackles and some match-winning sweeper plays.
However, I have a niggling doubt I should have given it to Bettinelli.  He psyched out two players who were clean through.  He might not have had to make stunning saves, but they both missed because of his size, presence, positioning and bravery.  And his distribution was the best I have ever seen from a Fulham keeper since we adopted the keep-ball game that so many of our fans want us to abandon.  That's one of the biggest reasons we were able to win today.

Think, for me it was Ream - cool & collected under pressure. Acknowledge the shouts for Bettinelli & Johansen, though.

Betts for me for the 1v 1 against Gestede and the coming out for the through ball and getting there before Braithwaite and a couple of fine saves as well

Good to see that there were a number of players who merited the m o m.
Shows that a number of players did well in what was a difficult and challenging game.

In terms of contributing to the result all fourteen played their part, but I was impressed by our determination to keep a clean sheet.  For me Ream held together and inspired so much about yesterday's win.  There was real fighting spirit within the team and that is really encouraging.

Norwood. He is clinical. A characteristic which we really missed last season.
