Westwood broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when finishing Matej Vydra's pass from the penalty spot.

Wood then netted his eighth goal in as many games with a thunderbolt, turning on Josh Brownhill's pass and picking out the top corner.

Saved by the woodwork when Anguissa's drive came down off the underside of the bar, but had little else to do. Eased some of the pressure with a number of high claims and punches and made several routine stops to deny Cavaleiro and Mitrovic.

Here are the RATINGS.

Had a shaky start to the game when Lookman and Robinson found some space down the left hand side, but slowly grew into it. Delivered a superb raking pass in the build up to the opener and looked far more assured after the break.
Limited Fulham's productivity down that side of the pitch, severely negating the threat of Cavaleiro and Tete. Covered well when necessary, provided an outlet in more advanced positions and bravely stuck a toe in at crucial moments.
Clean sheets don't come easy in the Premier League, but Tarkowski makes it look easy as times. Made a sublime intervention to thwart Lookman early on and just got better from that point. Almost scored with a first half header, which would've capped a fine display.
Captain fantastic. Mitrovic, Decordova-Reid, Lookman or Cavaleiro didn't get a look in and the skipper stood in their way without breaking a sweat. Whether the threat came from out wide, through the middle, high ball, low ball, Mee dealt with it stoically.
The midfielder put in a real shift down Burnley's right hand side. The former Bristol City man should have a movie named in his honour - "The Interceptor". Battle hardened in the middle of the park and claimed an assist for Burnley's second.
Things didn't quite go his way at Craven Cottage, but he stuck to the task and kept trying to make things happen. Worked hard against the ball, preventing Tete from getting forward while allowing Taylor to advance. Showed plenty of heart.
Cool and composed in midfield, taking the sting out of the game when needed. Protected the ball well, allowing his team-mates to readjust, and economical in possession. Turned the ball over, helping the Clarets get on the front foot.
Brilliant from start to finish and, despite putting in a typically workmanlike shift, still looked to have plenty in the tank after 90 minutes. Excellent defensively and on hand to turn home Vydra's pass to open the scoring at Craven Cottage.
Eight in eight for the New Zealander, who is in scintillating goal-scoring form for the Clarets. Took his goal tremendously well, picking out the top corner from Brownhill's pass. It was a finish that was illustrative of his confidence at present. Battled well in the final third.
Continuously turned water into wine for the Clarets. Ran hard and either won possession high up the pitch or forced Fulham's defence to concede a throw-in. Did impeccably well to keep Lowton's pass alive to tee up Westwood. Deserved a goal for his efforts.
Did everything that was asked of him when introduced after the hour. Ran the line well, giving the Fulham defence minimal time on the ball, and almost found the net when Areola beat away his attempt from inside the area.
