Minute Commentary
90' BRILLIANT BERBATOV ORCHESTRATES FULHAM WIN
Dimitar Berbatov was at the heart of everything as Fulham beat Aston Villa 2-0 at Craven Cottage. The Bulgarian created his side's first goal in the 21st minute with a through ball for Steve Sidwell, who slid the ball home from a tight angle. Then another Berbatov through pass, this time an aerial flick, sent Ashkan Dejagah into the box, where the Iranian was fouled by Leandro Bacuna. Berbatov himself stepped up to roll the penalty into the bottom corner, sending Brad Guzan the wrong way. Fulham were the superior side throughout and spurned numerous chances to extend their lead, most notably when John Arne Riise's header struck a post in the second half. Villa were outfought in every department, but they did manage to create a handful of opportunities; Christian Benteke enjoyed the best of these, but was denied by Maarten Stekelenburg on every occasion. This was a timely win for the Cottagers, who had lost six on the bounce, and it lifts them back above Crystal Palace. Is this there where the revival started? Time will tell.
90' FULL TIME FULHAM 2 ASTON VILLA 0
It's all over here at Craven Cottage, where Fulham have beaten Aston Villa by two goals to nil.
90' CURLER FROM BENTEKE
Christian Benteke takes over as Albrighton moves inside from the right, curling in a a dangerous first-time shot that Stekelenburg tips over the bar with a flying save.
90' NO HARM DONE
Marc Albrighton hangs up a free kick from deep, and Ciaran Clark manages to get his head to the ball, but it loops harmlessly into Stekelenburg's gloves.
89' NO JOY FOR RIISE
Kasami rolls a pass into the path of Riise, who approaches the area and connects sweetly with a left-footed shot, but Guzan holds onto it without too many problems. It looks like the former Liverpool man won't be getting his goal today.
87' INTO ROW Z
Sidwell dummies Dejagah's cutback from the byline with a clever stepover, allowing Pajtim Kasami to smash a woeful shot hight into the stand behind the goal.
84' NO PENALTY
Villa appeal loudly for a penalty as Agbonlahor seems to be tripped by Aaron Hughes inside the box. The ref's hand goes to his pocket, but something changes his mind. It's not looking good for the visitors.
81' DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION
Villa make a last desperate roll of the dice with a double change. Matt Lowton replaces Herd, while Andreas Weimann makes way for Marc Albrighton.
79' RAMPANT RIISE
Riise looks determined to get a goal. This time the full back runs 30 yards up the left flank before unleashing an absolute screamer from distance that finishes mere millimetres wide of the left-hand post.
77' SUBSTITUTION
Rene Meulensteen sends Damien Duff on for Kacaniklic.
75' BLUSHES SPARED
Clark counts his lucky stars after his wayward clearance, which was flying into his own net, bounces back off Herd.
73' SUBSTITUTION
Giorgos Karagounis receives a huge ovation as the battered and bruised midfielder is replaced by Pajtim Kasami.
70' DEJAGAH GOES FOR GOAL
Steve Sidwell rolls a short pass to Dejagah, who shimmies left and fires in a low shot from 18 yards. Guzan gets down quickly and holds onto the ball for dear life as Dejagah arrives to pick up the pieces.
67' YELLOW CARD
Chris Herd has committed a few niggling fouls, so it's the last straw when Giorgos Karagounis reaches the ball first and the defender scythes him down without a second thought. Mike Dean brandishes the yellow card.
65' OFF THE POST
Guzan flaps at Karagounis' cross and misses, allowing John Arne Riise a free header. The Norwegian is disappointed to see his effort bounce off the base of the post and away.
62' NOWHERE NEAR
Berbatov knocks Karagounis' pass first-time into the path of Scott Parker, whose sliced effort sails comfortably wide of the right stick.
61' WASTEFUL WESTWOOD
The visitors push men into the box as Ashley Westwood prepares to take a free kick inside Fulham's half, and there's groans from the travelling fans as the sheepish midfielder floats it over everybody and out into touch.
59' SUPER EFFORT
A tasty dribble from Karagounis sees the Greek leave Delph for dead and launch a shot from 20 yards that skims the top of the crossbar. Brad Guzan looked beaten there.
58' SUN IN PARKER'S EYES
Parker nearly heads through his own net while trying to clear Westwood's corner from the right, the skipper indicating that the sun was in his eyes.
55' BERBATOV ON THE VOLLEY
Riise slides in to relieve Fabian Delph of the ball and passes short to Parker, who glances up before guiding a lofted pass onto Berbatov's boot. The striker goes for a spectacular volley, which flashes wide of the near post.
52' CLASSIC RIISE
John Arne Riise rolls back the years with a piledriver of a volley after Scott Parker swings a ball across the pitch from right to left. Nathan Baker pops up to get his head in the way and concede a corner. Fulham take it short, allowing Alex Kacaniklic to cross for Senderos, whose header is caught impressively by the diving Guzan.
49' VILLA RE-ENERGISED
Villa seem more energised now; they're piling forward in search of a goal, but gaps are being left at the back.
46' SECOND HALF
The teams are back out and the second half is underway. Paul Lambert isn't waiting around to change things, bringing the anonymous Karim El Ahmadi off for Aleksandar Tonev.
45' FINE 45 FOR FULHAM
Fulham have turned on the style we all forgot they had with an impressive first half that's produced two fine goals. The first came in the 21st minute when a classy move saw Steve Sidwell run beyond the defence and slide the ball home from a tight angle, and it was no less than the hosts deserved. It was two after 30 minutes, Dimitar Berbatov playing Ashkan Dejagah through with a sublime piece of skill, the Iranian taking a tumble in the box under pressure from Leandro Bacuna. Berbatov himself stepped up to roll an impertinent penalty into the bottom corner. Villa have looked relatively solid at the back but haven't done enough in midfield, their best chances coming when Christian Benteke flashed a header wide and then drew a decent save from Maarten Stekelenburg with a drive from the edge of the box. They're far from out of this game, so stay tuned for all the action from the second half.
45' HALF TIME FULHAM 2 ASTON VILLA 0
It's half time here at Craven Cottage, where Fulham have a two-goal advantage over the Villains.
45' HURT FOR HERD
Berbatov accidentally catches Herd with an elbow to the jaw as the pair contest a high ball. The Australian receives a spot of treatment but is quickly given the all-clear.
45' CURLED WIDE
Leandro Bacuna, who has had some success with free kicks this season, curls the set-piece over the wall but outside the posts. It looks like Villa will be going into the break without a goal.
43' RIETHER'S TRANSGRESSION
Villa have another free kick just outside the box after Riether has a sneaky tug of Christian Benteke's shirt as the striker tries to turn for a run on goal.
40' HANDBALL
Berbatov jumps to block Ashley Westwood's cross and ends up stopping the ball with his hands just outside the area. Westwood himself takes the free kick, which is easily cleared by Senderos.
37' BRILLIANT BERBATOV
We're really seeing what Dimitar Berbatov can do now. The Bulgarian plays a pass into Sidwell, who has his back to goal, then runs around the entire Villa defence to collect the return pass and bring a desperate parry from Guzan. It's just a pity that he doesn't play like this more often.
35' SILKY SKILLS
A superb piece of skill from Berbatov sees the former Manchester United striker beat two men with a little shimmy before swivelling to find Ashkan Dejagah on the right with a raking pass. A pity that his teammate, who smashes an attempted cross into touch, can't match up.
32' DRAGGED WIDE
Gabriel Agbonlahor slides a pass through the channel for Delph, who tries his luck from close range but ends up dragging an effort wide of the far post.
30' GOAL!!! FULHAM
DIMITAR BERBATOV steps up to roll the most casual penalty you've ever seen into the bottom-left corner. Brad Guzan dives the wrong way after being completely deceived by the striker's body-shape.
29' PENALTY
Berbatov plays a beautiful through ball into the path of Dejagah, who races into the box and then seems to bump into Bacuna before taking a tumble. The referee awards what looks like a harsh penalty.
29' TROUBLE FOR FULHAM
There's mayhem in front of the Cottagers' goal as two Villa flick-ons see the ball fly across the goalmouth. Sidwell very nearly heads into his own net as Stekelenburg fails to take charge of the situation.
27' KARAGOUNIS BACK IN ACTION
The crowd give a generous cheer as Karagounis returns to the action. He's not one to wimp out.
24' MAN DOWN
Karagounis is wiped out by Chris Herd, who jumped fairly to head the ball but couldn't avoid piling through his opponent. The midfielder is forced to leave the pitch for treatment to his head.
21' GOAL!!! FULHAM
A lovely move by the Cottagers sees Giorgos Karagounis play it into Dimitar Berbatov, who flicks it up with his back to goal and plays a one-two with Ashkan Dejagah. The Bulgarian then slips it through the defence for STEVE SIDWELL, who looks to have taken the ball too wide but then surprises everybody by scooping the ball into the net from a near-impossible angle.
18' YELLOW CARD
Fabian Delph is booked for a late tackle, meaning that he'll incur a one-match suspension for amassing five yellow cards.
17' OFF THE LINE
Fulham are the ones who break this time, sending Ashkan Dejagah racing through the middle. Guzan charges from his line to nick the ball away from the Iranian, but it falls kindly for Kacaniklic. He tries to slot the ball into the bottom corner, only to be denied by Ciaran Clark on the line.
16' STRAIGHT AT THE KEEPER
Fabian Delph seizes on Senderos' mistake to find Benteke with a pass infield. The Villa man takes aim from the edge of the area, hitting his shot straight at the grateful Maarten Stekelenburg.
15' SLOW AGAIN
The last few minutes were a bit frantic, but it hasn't lasted; the game has settled back into a lazy rhythm, with the two teams showing each other a little more respect than necessary.
12' BENTEKE OFF TARGET
Sascha Riether misses the ball completely as he tries to deal with a long ball down the channel, allowing Agbonlahor to seize the initiative. The striker plays a cross into the area for the charging Benteke, who can only direct his header wide of the right-hand post.
11' CALM DEFENDING
John Arne Riise finds some space down the left wing and tries to worm his way into the area, only to find Leandro Bacuna blocking his way. The right back calmly puts his body in between opponent and ball to shepherd it out for a goal kick.
8' GREAT SAVE
Alex Kacaniklic's corner from the right drops to the back post, where Dimitar Berbatov sends a perfect header towards the top corner. The quality of the effort is matched, however, by a flying save from Brad Guzan.
7' PATTERN EMERGING
A pattern is taking shape, whereby Fulham press and Villa look to break out with rapid counter-attacks. One such quick-thinking move sees Gabriel Agbonlahor find Christian Benteke with a sweet through pass, but the Belgian's touch is heavy and Phillipe Senderos is able to relieve him of the ball.
4' CAGEY START
The two sides are both feeling their way into the game at the moment, with neither too willing to commit men forward in thse early stages. Fulham have had the lion's share of possession so far.
1' KICK OFF
Following a rousing minute of applause in honour of Nelson Mandela, referee Mike Dean blows the whistle to get this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash underway here at Craven Cottage. The atmosphere is jumping; let's see whether the players can channel some of that energy and enthusiasm.
0' LINE-UPS ANNOUNCED
Rene Meulensteen has made just the one change from the defeat to Tottenham, replacing Pajtim Kasami with Steve Sidwell. Villa bring Chris Herd in for the injured Antonio Luna, while Christian Benteke and Andreas Weimann replace Ron Vlaar and Libor Kozak, who has a toe injury.
0' ASTON VILLA TEAM NEWS
The hosts could find themselves short in defence, with Ron Vlaar having picked up a calf injury in midweek and Antonio Luna struggling with a groin problem.
0' FULHAM TEAM NEWS
Brede Hangeland's absence continues after the defender chose to have surgery on a troublesome sciatic nerve problem, while Darren Bent is ineligible to play against his parent club.
0' ONE TO WATCH
Fabian Delph has been Villa's outstanding player this season, the midfielder putting in consistently impressive performances in the team's engine room. Paul Lambert has previously said Delph should be considered for England, but last week's spectacular goal against Southampton has done considerably more to raise his public profile. He'll be key to winning the midfield battle today.
0' GIVEN EYEING EXIT
Shay Given is hoping for a January move away from Aston Villa. The out of favour keeper has enjoyed his month on loan at Middlesbrough, and feels he still has a lot to offer at the age of 37. With Brad Guzan not going anywhere soon, it may be that a transfer is the only way of getting some first-team action.
0' DON'T GO DIMITAR
Dimitar Berbatov's agent has declared that the Bulgaria striker wants a move away from Fulham in the January transfer window, but centre back Aaron Hughes would clearly miss him. The Craven Cottage stalwart said: “He is a vital player for us. You have seen that in his role and contribution to our team. We need all of our players performing at the highest levels”.
0' REF WATCH
Mike Dean is the man to take charge of this afternoon's encounter. The experienced official has shown an average of 3.56 yellow cards per match this season, so he won't be taking any nonsense from the players.
0' FULHAM V ASTON VILLA
This afternoon's early kick off sees the meeting of two teams in the midst of very different runs of form. A disastrous spell for Fulham has seen them lose six Barclays Premier League games on the bounce and change manager in an attempt to alter their fortunes, while Aston Villa's five-game unbeaten run is their best since the opening seven matches of the 2011/12 season. The Cottagers' new manager Rene Meulensteen has no time to bed in; with his team starting the day in 19th place, he needs to start delivering results right now, and today would be a good day to do it. Join me, Luke Ostler, at 1.30pm for all the action from Craven Cottage.
