Fulham have struggled with their forward play in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 vs opponents over the course of their last six fixtures. In those games, The Cottagers have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 8.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Manchester United in Premier League action, Everton and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

In a total of 5 out of the previous 6 clashes involving Everton, three or more goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match during that spell is 4, with the number of goals averaged by Everton equalling 2. That trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, however.

Team News: Fulham
Jay Stansfield (Ankle Surgery), Terence Kongolo (Calf Injury) and Josh Onomah (Knee Injury) are not available for Fulham boss Scott Parker. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Aboubakar Kamara, Kevin McDonald, Josh Onomah, Jean Michaël Seri and Stefan Johansen.
Team News: Everton
Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti to contend with. Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be in action.
We’ve got the feeling that Fulham will have their work cut out to get anything against this Everton outfit who will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
That’s why our selection here is for a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Everton at the end of this game.
We’ll see what happens.
