Stoke 1 – 0 Fulham
Fulham’s new found style succumbed to Stoke’s recognisable brawn as Charlie Adam scored his second goal for the club with the only goal of the game.
Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross turned in a dominant performance at the heart of the home defence.
The defenders performance was reflected by the stats which show he won 75% of his ground dels and 100% of his aerial duels.
He also racked up a 66.67% tackle success, chipped in with 11 clearances and had 2 shots at goal as Fulham played into the hands of the home side rather than exploiting the nimble footwork of Berbatov and looked like they missed the absent Ruiz and Kacaniklic.
Man of The Match: Ryan Shawcross
