<b> FULHAM v EVERTON , Sunday 13:30pm</b> <br/>
Everton have lost their last three league games in a row which is a first under David Moyes and the cash-strapped club face a continual battle with their slightly limited squad. In particular they have struggled up front and will hope that the re-signing of James McFadden will help them out in this area. Striking is an area where Fulham look strong with Andy Johnson, Bobby Zamora, Moussa Dembele and Bryan Ruiz all vying for places. Their fans will be hoping the teams Thursday night exertions in the Europa League don’t tire them out to much as they could be a real threat to the visitors.
<br/><br/><b>Recent results:</b> Everton 2-1 Fulham (19/03/2011, PL) Fulham 0-0 Everton (25/09/2010, PL) <br/><br/><b>One to watch:</b> <b>Bobby Zamora</b> has scored in each of his side’s last three home games and will become the first Fulham player to score in four Premier League home matches if he scores against Everton. He was rested for the Europa League defeat to Wisla Krakow this week so looks a favourite to start. Fulham fans and players will be hoping he can score again and get his name in the record books. <br/><br/><b>Did you know?:</b> There has only been one away win in all 20 Premier League matches between these two sides.
<br/><br/><b>Fantasy pick:</b> Danny Murphy, 40 (Fulham), Tim Howard, 29 (Everton)*
<br/><br/><b>Tweet of the week:</b> '@QuadeCooper @digbyioane @QantasWallabies unlucky and tremendous effort NZ were at there best today. #aussiepride' @Tim_Cahill - <b>Tim Cahill</b> sends his commiserations to the Australian rugby team. <br/><br/><i>* Based on Fantasy Premier League, the official Premier League fantasy game</i>
