Fulham vs Everton: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Everton travel to the capital on Sunday for a fascinating Premier League contest against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Fulham vs Everton: Predictions
Everton travel south this weekend, looking to avoid four Premier League defeats on the bounce for the first time since Marco Silva’s reign in October 2019, while Fulham will hope that the international break has given them enough time to mull over the late drama at West Ham.
Carlo Ancelotti was riding the wave of a crest at the start of the campaign, which culminated in his Everton side perched atop the table for three straight matchweeks, but a combination of injury problems and suspensions have seen the Toffees lose momentum, and their last three outings.
Everton’s latest defeat, following on from away losses to Southampton and Newcastle, saw them throw away a one-goal lead to come up short against Manchester United just before the international break at Goodison Park, leaving them seventh in the table.
Fulham meanwhile were unable to build upon their first win of the season against West Brom, losing to West Ham in the dying embers at the London Stadium, failing to capitalise on a 98th-minute penalty opportunity, with Lukasz Fabianski casually collecting Ademola Lookman’s Panenka attempt.

Fulham vs Everton: Match Stats
It will come as no shock that Everton’s three successive defeats have coincided with the absence of Richarlison, who has been suspended for each contest owing to the red card he picked up in the Merseyside derby. Indeed since the Brazilian joined, Everton are winless in all eight Premier League games in which he has not participated.
He was the subject of a heavy challenge from Edinson Cavani over the international break in Brazil’s World Cup qualifier against Uruguay but appears to have come through unscathed and should partake in this weekend’s encounter.
And while Ancelotti’s ephemeral success at the start of the season has taken a dent, in Fulham he has the perfect opportunity to make a strong start and gain some impetus going forward. Scott Parker’s side are the only team yet to score in the opening 15 minutes of their Premier League games so far this season, while the Cottagers have also shipped the most in that timeframe (five).
13 April 2019 – Fulham 2-0 Everton – Premier League
29 September 2018 – Everton 3-0 Fulham – Premier League
30 March 2014 – Fulham 1-3 Everton – Premier League
14 December 2013 – Everton 4-1 Fulham – Premier League
24 September 2013 – Fulham 2-1 Everton – League Cup
Scott Parker has already tasted victory against the Merseysiders, beating Marco Silva’s side in the fifth from last game of the 2018/19 campaign, in which the former England international was drafted in to steady the ship before Fulham’s eventual relegation. That 2-0 win, with goals coming from Ryan Babel and Tom Cairney, ended a run of 10 league games without a win against the Toffees, and was also Parker’s first victory as a manager.
