Newcastle 0-3 Everton (Barkley, Lukaku, Osman)

Fulham recorded their third loss in five matches under Felix Magath after being thrashed 5-0 by a ruthless Manchester City at the Ethiad. This is the first time Fulham have failed to score since the new manager replaced Rene Meulensteen and have now conceded twelve goals in five matches, scoring four times. Fulham will be looking to back up their 1-0 win over Newcastle from their last home game when they take on Everton but the Cottagers haven't won back to back league games at home for almost a year, since they backed up a 1-0 win over Stoke with a 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers on 1st April 2013.

Fulham's single goal win over Newcastle at Craven Cottage is their first win against the current top nine Premier League teams this season. Their only other point came in a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford. However their 5-0 thrashing to Manchester City at the weekend took their goal difference tally to over the negative 30 mark. After this match, the only fixture remaining against a top nine team for Fulham is Tottenham away from home.

Possible Line-ups

Everton won their first away game of 2014 and their fifth of the season as they demolished Newcastle 3-0 at St James' Park exceeding last season's tally of four away wins in the Premier League. Everton have now won four league matches in a row for the first time since January 2006 and Everton haven't won five in a row since November 2002 after Everton won 1-0 in all five matches.

Unlike Fulham who had a man sent off last weekend against Manchester City, Everton have gone 12 matches since their last and only red card of the season, Tim Howard against Sunderland. It's also been 25 matches since the only other red card in an Everton match this season when Mark Noble saw red in the 3-2 win over West Ham. Incredibly Liverpool haven't seen a sending off to their own player since Jonjo Shelvey's dismissal at home to Manchester United 18 months ago in a 2-1 loss. The two North London clubs are the only sides not to see an opposition player sent off this season.

Stats and Injuries

Fulham: Record signing Kostas Mitroglou and Scott Parker are both set to return from fitness but Dan Burn, Damien Duff and Ashkan Dejagah are all likely to miss out through injury and Fernando Amorebieta is suspended.

Everton: Long Term injuries Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo along with loanee Lacina Traore will all miss out this game whilst Phil Jagielka could return, though Steven Pienaar isn't expected to return for another couple of weeks.

Sir Stealth:
The Swansea result was 3-2. Otherwise great work as always!

Fulham will make this really tough. Hopefully our quality shines through and we get the job done. I expect a few changes after midweek to freshen things up. Mirallas back in possibly

Expecting a win, and that is dangerous!

Imagine Steve sidwell being your leading scorer.

The pace of Johnny Heitinga could be the decisive factor.
