Foot Predictions shows Sunday’s Premier League clash between Everton and Fulham, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Everton to receive Fulham to Goodison Park on Sunday night looking to remain in contention for a place in the top six in the Premier League table.
While the Toffees try to qualify for Europe, the visitors are eight points behind security, after 12 league games without a win.
Carlo ancelotti he won’t want Everton to develop a habit of conceding seven goals in two matches, especially against rivals Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
However, the Italian can only be excited about the two recovery results, which kept the club in contention for the Champions League and ensured further advances in the FA Cup.
If the Toffees manage to win their games less in the Premier League, they will move three points ahead of neighboring Liverpool in qualifying, a scenario considered unthinkable a few months ago.
With just eight points from six games in the first division, Ancelotti will have more concerns about consistency than complacency in the final months of the season.
That said, their players have shown on many occasions this season that they have the tools to bother any club in the division, while maintaining pressure on teams that feel they cannot lose the European qualification.
Everton won 3-2 in the reverse game on November 22, the result acting as a catalyst for Fulham to make improvements in defense.
However, despite eight draws and four clean sheets since that game, Scott Parker he knows that only victories will give Cottagers a chance to avoid relegation.
There were good points in winning a share of the spoils against West Ham United last weekend, even if Fulham have failed to win any of their last eight home games.
With Parker’s team recording four consecutive draws away from home, they can at least enter this encounter with the awareness that they are capable of producing performances on their travels.
Goals remain a problem, with just four goals in seven league games since the beginning of the year.
