Key Stat: Everton have won just one of their last eight Premier League matches.
Expert Verdict: Everton are struggling for form in the league, and their back-to-back defeats to West Ham and Arsenal have ended an unbeaten start that consisted mostly of draws. Fulham are in a similar position, however, and the two teams might cancel each other out at Goodison Park.
Everton vs Fulham Prediction & Betting Tips
Everton Team News, Updates, and Facts
Everton Team News
Yerry Mina is nearing fitness as he awaits his first start for Everton but he will have to remain patient for now. Michael Keane is fit, however, and partnered Kurt Zouma against Arsenal. Andre Gomes remains sidelined, however, as he too waits for his first start and Phil Jagielka, James McCarthy and Beni Bangingime are also unavailable. Cenk Tosun may return up front after dropping to the bench against Arsenal last weekend.
Everton Key Players
Richarlison – Started the season as he started the previous campaign, with goals and a lot of excitement about his talent, and he has a point to prove after his Bournemouth red card too.
Cenk Tosun – Will hope to return up front and will have plenty to prove as he bids to prove his goalscoring talent more consistently for the Toffees.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Scored Everton’s most recent Premier League goal in the defeat to West Ham, having opened his account for the season in the Carabao Cup second round.
Everton Team Form
Everton have lost their last two matches to end a five-match unbeaten run at the start of the season. They have won just one of their last five matches too, and that was in the Carabao Cup at home to Rotherham United. Since that 3-1 win, in which Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored, Everton have drawn with Huddersfield – Calvert-Lewin scoring his third goal in two games in a 1-1 draw – before a 3-1 loss to West Ham and 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.
Everton Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 4-2-3-1
Everton likely XI
Defenders:Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, Kurt Zouma, Lucas Digne
Defensive Midfielders:Idrissa Gana Gueye, Tom Davies
Attacking Midfielders:Theo Walcott, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Richarlison
Fulham Team News, Updates, and Facts
Fulham Team News
Fulham took the opportunity to rest several first-team players for the Carabao Cup win against Millwall, and Aleksandar Mitrovic will lead the list of players set to return at Everton. Neeskens Kebano and Tom Cairney remain sidelined with ankle and foot problems respectively, however. Ryan Sessegnon was pushed back to left-back against Watford, and could remain there with Andre Schurrle on the left-wing in front of him.
Fulham Key Players
Aleksandar Mitrovic – Joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League, having netted his fifth of the campaign to earn a point against Watford last time out.
Andre Schurrle – Dortmund loanee as weighed in with two goals so far this season, including the opener in the draw with Brighton.
Luciano Vietto – On loan from Atletico Madrid and has contributed three assists in his five games so far, including Mitrovic’s equaliser against Watford.
Fulham Team Form
Fulham have lost just one of their last five matches – a 3-0 reverse away to Manchester City – but their two wins in that time have both come in the Carabao Cup against lower-league opposition. Fulham beat Exeter 2-0 in August thanks to Aboubakar Kamara’s double and then beat Milwall 3-1 last time out with Joe Bryan, Luca de la Torre and Cyrus Christie all scoring. In the league, either side of the defeat at the Etihad – they have drawn 2-2 with Fulham despite being 2-0 up thanks to Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic and, last weekend, drew 1-1 with Watford thanks to Mitrovic’s equaliser.
Fulham Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 4-3-3
Fulham likely XI
Defenders:Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Alfie Mawson, Calum Chambers, Ryan Sessegnon
Midfielders:Stefan Johansen, Kevin McDonald, Jean-Michel Seri
Forwards:Luciano Vietto, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Andre Schurrle
Everton vs Fulham Head-to-Head Stats
Prior to relegation in 2014, Fulham had a poor record against Everton – losing 13 of their last 19 matches and winning just one of their last 11. Both sides have undergone significant changes since Everton won 4-1 at home and 3-1 away in their most recent meetings in 2013/14, however – only Seamus Coleman and Phil Jagielka remain of the players who started the first meeting, though Maarten Stekelenburg, who was Fulham’s keeper that day, is likely to be on the Everton bench on Saturday.
EFC vs FUL FC Betting Tips
Both Everton and Fulham are looking for more consistency this season after drawing too many matches, though Fulham are in better form at the moment.
Aleksandar Mitrovic has been at the heart of that and if Michael Keane and Kurt Zouma can’t keep him under wraps the hosts will be in trouble – the Serbian striker having scored five goals so far this season.
Yerry Mina would have been an ideal player to have back to mark the Serbian, but the Colombian is not quite fully fit – not that Keane and Zouma do not possess height and power either.
Nevertheless, he is the key man and if Fulham can pick up where they left off against Watford – avoiding a first-half in which they were totally outplayed before roaring back with a dominant second 45 – they will be a threat.
Everton’s poor form is a bit of a misnomer too, however – their defeats to Arsenal and West Ham have put a negative spin on what was otherwise looking like a decent start under Marco Silva.
It is the West Ham loss in particular that have affected things, however – the Hammers having previously been winless in the league under Manuel Pellegrini.
Everton’s biggest problem have been the games they have drawn, which they might feel they should have won – and the worry will be that this Fulham game could be another like that.
Both teams have drawn a few matches already this season, so another would not be the biggest surprise.
Fulham vs Everton Recommended bets with odds
Everton’s home advantage makes them odds-on favourites against Fulham, at a best price of 10/13, but Betfair are offering 16/5 on the draw and that is tempting.
The Toffees have drawn three of six league games this season and Fulham have drawn twice too. Furthermore, a draw and BTTS improves those odds to 18/5 with Ladbrokes.
While both sides have goals in them, they could cancel each other out. Fulham drew 1-1 last time out in the league and Everton drew a blank last weekend and scored just one the weekend before. Therefore, under 2.5 goals at a best price of 11/8 with 888sport could be worthwhile.
In terms of those goals, Aleksandar Mitrovic is surprisingly generously priced at 21/10 with Betway to score at any time. Richarlison (15/8 with Bet365) and Theo Walcott (37/19 with 888sport) both have goals in them for Everton.
Everton vs Fulham Prediction
With five draws between them already this season, another stalemate could ensue at Goodison Park.
