Everton to win 2-1

Everton are in danger of relying on their home results too much right now, with Sean Dyche’s side going since the 1st October without victory away from Goodison Park.

In their recent defeat away to Manchester United, they barely looked capable of landing a glove on Erik ten Hag’s men, although they earned draws in their previous two away fixtures.

Now, back at home, they must take advantage of their passionate crowd and the poor form shown recently by their opponents.

Fulham, indeed, have lost their way in recent times. Not only have they lost their last four in a row in the Premier League, in addition to an FA Cup Quarter Final, they must also do without their top striker for eight games due to suspension.

Mitrovic was a shining light for the Cottagers this season and he will be missed upfront, especially in physical games like this.

Everton FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Won three of their five home games under Dyche 

     Lost just two of their last 14 league games against Fulham

Reasons to be fearful:

     Looked toothless against Manchester United last weekend

     Conceded five in their last three games

You feel that Everton’s fate remains very much in their hands, having collected 10 points from their five home games under Sean Dyche.

It’s a run that has lifted them out of the bottom three, albeit only on goal difference. Even their away form has improved slightly, with two points from their last four fixtures.

That said, they looked short of ideas and quality upfront against Manchester United, with the inexperienced Ellis Simms leading the line. 

With Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury struggles continuing and Neal Maupay lacking any great consistency, they may have to persevere through to the end of the season.

Here, their record against Fulham is strong and they will expect to find three points against a struggling opponent.

Star Man – Alex Iwobi

Iwobi’s energy and drive from midfield can often be the difference in games for Everton. He can play in a number of positions, which means he is hard for opponents to pick up. Has seven assists this season.

Fulham FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Can recover season with a good spell of form

     Strong in possession and creating chances even without Mitrovic

Reasons to be fearful

     The wheels have fallen off in recent times

     Five defeats on the bounce shows confidence has gone

After the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United, where two of their players and their manager were on the receiving end of red cards, you would have expected a response from Fulham.

Instead, their reaction has been to lose their way entirely. Having once challenged for a European spot, Fulham will now be grateful to finish in the top half this season.

Five defeats in a row in all competitions shows how the confidence has deserted this team and with Mitrovic missing for a while, where are their goals going to come from?

A win away to Everton could give them the kickstart they need, but it’s hard to see them finding their feet again at Goodison Park.

Star Man – Andreas Pereira

The attacking midfielder has enjoyed a fine season in Fulham colours and is now very much the main man with Mitrovic suspended. He has undoubted quality but needs help from his teammates.

     Everton will be on the front foot

     An early goal would make things interesting

     Fulham must find a route to goal

These days, you know what you’re getting from Everton when they play at Goodison Park.

Sean Dyche has them playing a brand of organised, energetic and direct football in front of their home supporters and it appears to be working.

That’s not to say that they’ll win every home game, but they should collect enough points to stay up this season.

Fulham’s run of poor form will come to an end at some point, and they have the luxury of knowing that they’re safe from relegation.

It would be a surprise if they were to win this one, however.
