Fulham FC v Everton FC
Craven Cottage (Capacity: 25, 700)
Tuesday 24th September 20:00
Capital One Cup 3rd Round


Fulham's last 5 matches:

Fulham 1-3 Arsenal (Bent)
Burton 2-2 Fulham (4-5 pens) - League Cup (Taraabt, Rodallega)
Newcastle 1-0 Fulham
Fulham 1-1 West Brom (Sidwell)
Chelsea 2-0 Fulham

Everton's last 5 matches:

Everton 0-0 West Brom
Everton 2-1 Stevenage - League Cup (Deulofeu, Fellaini)
Cardiff 0-0 Everton
Everton 1-0 Chelsea (Naismith)
West Ham 2-3 Everton (Baines x2, Lukaku)



Fulham

Possible Starting XI:

-----------------------------Stockdale--------------------------------
-----Riether----Hangeland-----------Amorebieta---Richardson----
-----------------------Parker--------Sidwell--------------------------
---------------Duff-----------Kasami--------Kacaniklic--------------
--------------------------------Bent-----------------------------------

There are a few injuries concerns in the Fulham squad at this time. Dimitar Berbatov missed out on the defeat to Chelsea on Saturday Evening but could be available on Tuesday Night. Aaron Hughes and Bryan Ruiz will both miss out through injury whilst summer signing goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is also likely to need a further week to recover from an injury he picked up on the opening day of the season.

Fulham are currently 18th in the Premier League and could be as low as 19th should Crystal Palace gain a point or more in their game against Swansea on Sunday. Since they picked up 3 points at the stadium of light on the opening day they've picked up just 1 point out of a possible 12. Their last home game against West Brom ended in a 1-1 draw as Fulham conceded an injury time equaliser. No team has scored less goals than Fulham in the Premier League.

They struggled in the previous round as they fielded a less than full strength team away to  League Two outfit Burton Albion. The Premier League side struggled to dominate the game and conceded an 85th minute equaliser to take the game to extra time. Fulham went behind in the 102nd minute before Rodallega seized an equaliser 3 minutes from the end to salvage a penalty shoot out which they won without missing a penalty 5-4.




Everton

Possible Starting XI:

--------------------------------Joel-----------------------------------
-----Coleman----Jagielka-----------Stones--------Baines----------
---------------------McCarthy-------Barry---------------------------
------------Deulofeu---------Barkley--------Oviedo-----------------
--------------------------------Lukaku--------------------------------

It's difficult to predict what team Martinez will send out against Fulham. He made 8 changes in the last round but that was at home to League One Stevenage. Joel is likely to continue in goal whilst John Stones could be elected in a solid back 4. Heitinga was utilised in the last round though Gareth Barry and James McCarthy weren't options then. Deulofeu played the full game and could feature again. Naismith and Jelavic may play some part but Lukaku could start to gain some more playing time as the next Premier League game isn't until Monday. Darron Gibson, Antolin Alcaraz, Arouna Kone, Steven Pienaar and Leon Osman are unlikely to play any part through injury.

The last meeting between the two ended in a 1-0 victory to Everton as Steven Pienaar scored in the penultimate home game of last season.


The last game between the two sides at Craven Cottage ended 2-2 with Fellaini giving Everton a 2-1 lead only for Fulham to equalise in injury time.



The last cup game where these clubs met was decided by a Fellaini header after Denis Stracqualursi opened his account for the blues in the 11-12 season. Everton 2-1 Fulham

Fulham made a few change last round, but I would say it was still a strong side from their point of view.

I wouldn't want to guess our XI & bench. Lots of options currently. Think it'll be too early for Alcaraz or Pienaar but the following will all have individual cases to be involved (not that I think they will all start)

Robles

Hibbert  Stones  Heitinga  Oviedo

Gibson  McCarthy

??????  ??????  Deulofeu

Kone

I'd guess Gibson & Kone will have to put up with a place on the bench, if deemed fit enough. McCarthy will get his first start. I'd expect Robles & Deulofeu to start. Stones, Heitinga & Hibbert will all expect to be involved as some point - not sure they'll all start.

Lukaku my miss out due to his bump on the head (just a guess?)

Not sure we'll see many goals, especially if we make a few changes. 1 nil to us (Deulofeo).

If Berbatov and Ruiz are out we should batter these. I think Heitinga, Kone, Robles and Deulofeu might come in

I think Lukaku may sit Tuesday out after banging his head.

I'd forgotten all about Fellaini.

that Pienaar goal was some of the best football we played last season, flowing and wonderful to watch

We'd be making an early exit with that team.

The away end is the stand behind the goal and to the left of the goal...the other half of the stand is a neutral end with no segregation between the two.
