Fulham vs. Everton – EPL, November 22, 2020
Fulham may have beaten West Brom in a must-win game but followed that up with another defeat before the international break. Now Everton comes to Craven Cottage and both sides could really do with the points.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side is still in a good position but has faltered recently and needs a positive result to show that it can compete this season.
Fulham vs. Everton Odds
Fulham has only won one game all season so Everton being odds on to win this one is not a huge surprise. But Everton has struggled in recent weeks and it will be interesting to see how the players perform coming off a busy international break.
The draw bet odds might be worth a closer look here.
Fulham vs. Everton Match Preview
Fulham managed to beat West Brom but has only picked up one other point – against bottom of the table Sheffield United – this season. So getting a penalty deep into stoppage time in its most recent game against West Ham looked like being a much-needed stroke of luck before the week off.
But Ademola Lookman chose the worst possible time to go for the panenka, as Lukasz Fabianski gratefully fielded his attempt with ease to win the game for West Ham. Hopefully the RB Leipzig loanee has gotten that miss out of his head, as he could be a major reason for the Cottagers staying up this season.
Everton had an equally disappointing send off into the break, losing 3-1 at home to Manchester United. That was the third defeat in a row – and the impressive start to the season has been largely forgotten now. Everton is still in seventh place in the table but has looked a little toothless in recent games.
It is no coincidence that Richarlison missed every one of those last three games because of suspension. The Brazilian attacker should be back on Sunday though and could provide the extra thrust that was lacking in his absence. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still scoring goals, so the prospects look much better for Everton going into this game.
Fulham vs. Everton Pick
Everton to Win-112
Although much of the attention was on Calvert-Lewin as Everton started the season so well, Richarlison’s input was sorely missed in the last three games. His return should mean that the Toffees are able to overrun a Fulham side that has looked brittle at times.
Both teams really need a win this weekend, but it is more likely that Everton fans will be happiest on Sunday.
