Everton embarks on a mission to break their three consecutive defeats in the Premier League this weekend. The side travels to Craven Cottage to take on a misfiring Fulham. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 3 pm.
Despite recording only one win in their last eight matches in the Premier League, Fulham sits on top of the relegation line with a point. On the other hand, Everton registered their third loss in their new campaign with a 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
Everton remains seventh on the table from occupying the top spot in the past five weeks. Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to find their mojo back that saw the side lead as the only unbeaten side across Europe with the highest-scoring attacker, Calvert Lewin.
The red card suspension of Ricahrlison followed with defeats to Southampton, Manchester United and Newcastle United. Their losses show the dependency on the Brazilian forward and James Rodriguez. In their last three outings, the side conceded seven goals leaving more unresolved questions for the backline.
On the other hand, Fulham sits ten places below their Sunday opponents. The Meyerside outfit managed to concede one goal less than their opponents, who continue showing resurgence signs.
Moreover, Scott Parker remains under immense pressure, especially after facing six defeats in his last eight matches. Fulham has trips to Leicester City and Manchester City in succession, thus mounting more pressure.
