Preview: Scott Parker registered his first ever win as a manager against Everton in April 2019, and what the former England midfielder would do for a repeat of the 2-0 scoreline that day. His Fulham side hover precariously above the Premier League drop zone ahead of Sunday’s meeting at Craven Cottage with an out-of-form Everton.

Fulham Preview – Parker overseeing gradual improvements?

The Cottagers, and in particular Ademola Lookman, have had two weeks to come to terms with the hugely disappointing 1-0 loss away at West Ham before the break, in which the aforementioned Lookman spurned the opportunity to earn his team a valuable point with a badly executed Penenka-style penalty. What transpired instead was a sixth league defeat of a season that already looks an uphill struggle to survive.

Fulham found it tough going the last time they were in the English top tier, when finishing second from bottom in 2018/19 after winning just seven of 38 games, and the early signs are ominous. Scott Parker oversaw the club’s plight two seasons ago, even securing his maiden win as manager in this fixture, but has so far managed only one win this time around, at home to fellow promoted side West Brom.

There have been some encouraging signs in some of their more recent games, however, particularly with regards to their once porous backline. Fulham shipped 10 goals across their opening three league fixtures, conceding three or more to Arsenal, Aston Villa and Leeds, but have limited their next five opponents to five between them, in a spell which also seen them collect four points to climb out of the relegation zone.


Draw & Both To Score



Everton Preview – Ancelotti must stem flow of goals?

The crux of the matter is, Everton have not been the same side from the one that won its opening four league games ever since the fallout from a controversial Merseyside derby. A combination of many things – a perceived negative media coverage, but especially injuries and suspensions to players integral to how they operate – has contrived to see them fail to win in four matches since drawing 2-2 with Liverpool.

In fact, Everton are on a losing run of three games. The last time they went four without picking up any points was in October 2019 under Marco Silva. A 3-1 scoreline at Goodison Park against Manchester United serving as the latest horror show, with Carlo Ancelotti overseing the fifth successive Premier League game – and sixth of eighth overall – in which his defence had conceded on at least two occasions.

Some good news, though, is the imminent returns of Lucas Digne and Richarlison (both suspension) and James Rodriguez (injury). All three are now available and have been sorely missed since they were last sharing the same pitch against the defending champions. However, how fresh they are remains to be seen as both Richarlison and Rodriguez were heavily involved in South America over the break.

Fulham Vs Everton Betting Advice

With three more points accrued through the last four league fixtures, Fulham (W1 D1 L2) come into this contest in marginally superior form to that of Everton (D1 L3) who arrive in West London on the back of three successive defeats. Scott Parker oversaw a first win of the campaign in his team’s latest home encounter meanwhile, against West Brom, and have now conceded just four in their last five league games.


Fulham Vs Everton – Key Facts:

  • Six defeats in eight Premier League matches so far this season for Fulham. The Cottagers did, however, earn their first win last time out at home: 2-0 vs West Brom.
  • Everton have now gone four league games without recording a win (D1 L3), losing the last three, and have conceded at least twice in each of their last five.
  • Fulham were without a victory against Everton in ten attempts prior to a 2-0 win in April 2019, which was the last occasion these clubs met.


Whereas Fulham have grown in stature defensively, Everton only appear to be getting worse. Carlo Ancelotti has seen his team ship two or more in six of eight league matches this season, and in each of the last five, of which they have failed to win any of the last four. This provides the home side with an excellent opportunity to improve upon modest returns of four points and seven goals scored in eight Premier League games in 2020/21.
