David Lacey in the Observer:

Yet once Torres had been taken off with this week’s Champions League action in mind, Liverpool lost their cohesion and discipline, and after goals from Erik Nevland and Clint Dempsey, plus the sendings-off had put the contest beyond their reach, the Fulham supporters chanted “We want four,” which added insult to injury considering that Hodgson’s side had scored only four times in all their home league games this season.

John Aizlewood in The Sunday Times:

Fulham, lest we forget, were without their own injured platoon of Andrew Johnson, Danny murphy and Simon Davies. As poorly as Liverpool played, Fulham were admirable and they scored with their first attack. Diomansy Kamara collected Schwarzer’s ;long punt and found Damien Duff on the right. The Irishman crossed low. As Emiliano Insua slept soundly at the back post, Bobby Zamora nipped in to sweep home.

Glenn Moore in the Independent on Sunday:

Fulham took full advantage of their numerical superiority with Nevland setting up Dempsey for a decisive third with a few minutes left. “It was a great win,” said Hodgson. “We are getting better as a team but the results have not shown that.”

John Ley in the Sunday Telegraph:

And in the 73rd minute, Fulham were ahead again when Konchesky crossed, Reina punched the ball to Gera, his headed pass went back into the goal area and Nevland scored from close range to claim his first goal since May.
