After winning at Old Trafford and dominating at The Emirates, seeing off Fulham at home should be a breeze for Everton. The Cottagers have lost 13 of their 14 trips to Goodison Park in the Premier League and must travel up to Merseyside this weekend on the back of what has been their worst ever start to a Premier League season.

However, Fulham have been reinvigorated by new boss Rene Meulensteen and they will be buoyed by their convincing 2-0 victory over Aston Villa last Sunday.

Yet even with Dimitar Berbatov back in the mood, the Goodison Park faithful, who frequently witnessed big name scalps followed up by disappointing defeats during the Moyes era, will be demanding all three points from this one. 

KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm.


Fulham 2 (Berbatov, Bent) Everton 1 (Naismith), Capital One Cup, September 2013

Everton 1 (Pienaar) Fulham 0, Premier League, April 2013
