The Premier League is back in action with another set of fixtures this weekend as Everton take on Fulham at Goodison Park on Sunday. Everton have been impressive this season and are the favourites to win this game.
Fulham have struggled in the Premier League this season and find themselves in 18th place in the league table. The Cottagers are set to face an intense relegation battle in the coming months and will need to win this game.
Everton, on the other hand, find themselves in seventh place in the Premier League standings and have grown under Carlo Ancelotti. The Toffees played out a 5-4 thriller against the Spurs in the FA Cup earlier this week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Everton vs Fulham Head-to-Head
Everton have a good record against Fulham and have won 31 games out of a total of 64 matches played between the two teams. Fulham have managed only 20 victories against Everton and need to take it up a notch in this fixture.
The previous game between the two teams took place last year and ended in a 3-2 victory for Everton. Dominic Calvert-Lewin was exceptional on the day but is unavailable for this fixture.
