Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez earned a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage to maintain his side's Champions League hopes and give Fulham a European hangover.
The hosts still had their famous victory against Juventus fresh in the mind when they found themselves behind to Roque Santa Cruz's opener, with Tevez then extending the lead before the break in the Barclays Premier League clash.
Fulham are comfortable in mid-table and boss Roy Hodgson illustrated his Europa League and FA Cup priorities by taking off key players - but Danny Murphy pulled a goal back from the penalty spot, before substitutes Nigel De Jong and Shaun Wright-Phillips missed further opportunities to seal the win for City.
