Everton vs Fulham match preview

Can Everton take a gigantic step towards safety?

Last weekend the Toffees were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford, meaning they’re still winless on the road since 1 October, a run of in 11 games.

At home though the Blues have been much better under Sean Dyche, accumulating ten points from five outings, their sole defeat coming at the hands of in-form Aston Villa.

Victories over Arsenal, Brentford and Leeds, as well as that last-gasp draw with Tottenham, are just about keeping Everton out of the drop zone, albeit only on goal difference.

This game looks like a golden chance for Everton to claim three more points, so can they seize the opportunity?

That’s largely due to the fact Fulham are proverbially if not quite literally on the beach.

So, Marco Silva’s side have now lost four league on the spin, also having that costly meltdown at Old Trafford in the FA Cup during this period.

This has seen Fulham sink down to tenth, above Chelsea on goal difference, with their fans determined to, at the very least, finish above their struggling neighbours.

Fulham won 2-0 when they last visited Goodison in February 2021 but, before that, had lost 12 successive outings there, never winning back-to-back trips.

In fact, in Premier League history, 23 of Fulham and Everton’s 31 meetings (74%) have produced home wins, the highest % of any fixture in the competition’s 31-year history.

This is set to rise to a nice round 75% here, with Everton confident of keeping the home win trend going.

Everton team news

Abdoulaye Doucouré is serving the second of his three-match ban here after being sent off in the draw with Spurs.

Interestingly, Sean Dyche elected to bring in striker Ellis Simms for Doucouré last weekend, rather than making a like-for-like swap with James Garner or Tom Davies filling in.

This simply didn’t work at Old Trafford but here, for a significantly more winnable fixture, does make sense a an approach.

Captain SĂ©amus Coleman hobbled off a week ago, so Nathan Patterson will come in.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Keane, Godfrey; Gana Gueye, Onana, Iwobi, McNeil, Gray; Simms.

Fulham team news

Aleksandar Mitrović’s eight-game suspension continues; he’s currently set to be back for Southampton on 13 May, although the FA want his ban to be extended further.

Manager Marco Silva too will watch this one from the stands, as he did last week.

CĂ©dric and Tosin Adarabioyo came into the defence for the defeat to West Ham, but Kenny Tete and Issa Diop could return here.

Of the 14 players that featured when Fulham last visited Goodison 26 months ago, only Tete, Adarabioyo, Harrison Reed and Bobby Decordova-Reid are still employed by club.

Predicted XI: (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed, Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; VinĂ­cius
