Fulham v Everton – Match Preview

Champions League hopefuls Everton travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham on Saturday looking to further cement their top four challenge.

David Moyes has enjoyed an excellent start to the season, with his side sitting fifth just a point outside the top four. But three straight draws, including last weeks 2-2 draw with Liverpool has seen them drop 5 points off the top three.

Martin Jol has got Fulham playing some decent stuff, with the West Londoners sitting in a respectable 7th place. Goals have been flowing for Fulham, but defensive problems have surfaced, a fact perfectly highlighted by their 3-3 draw with Reading last time out.

Everton are expected to welcome back Steven Pienaar from suspension, whilst Kevin Mirallas is also expected to be fit. The Belgian looked a real threat during the first half of the Merseyside derby before having to be withdrawn with a foot injury.

Dimitar Berbatov is an injury doubt for Fulham, with the Bulgarian suffering a suspected broken rib in the 3-3 draw with Reading.

Prediction: Fulham 2-2 Everton
