Fulham v Everton
Craven Cottage
Sunday 30th March 13:30
Premier League Match 31


Fulham's last 5 domestic results:

West Brom 1-1 Fulham (Dejagah)
Fulham 1-3 Chelsea  (Heitinga)
Cardiff 3-1 Fulham (Holtby)
Fulham 1-0 Newcastle (Dejagah)
Fulham 0-5 Manchester City

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Everton 1-0 West Ham (Lukaku)
Arsenal 4-1 Everton - FA Cup (Lukaku)
Everton 2-1 Cardiff (Deulofeu, Coleman)
Everton 3-2 Swansea (Baines Pen, Lukaku, Barkley)
Newcastle 0-3 Everton (Barkley, Lukaku, Osman)

Fulham

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

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.

(http://i.imgur.com/kmT6CDa.png)

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

(http://i.imgur.com/9nGZCOy.png)

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.

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!

The pace of Johnny Heitinga could be the decisive factor.

The fact he's probably playing is the one fear I have with this game.

We should win (despite the away fixture). Man for man we're better in every aspect. Patience will be really important, but I love the way we countered against Newcastle. If we maintain that performance, in a really important game, I think 3-1 Everton isn't unrealistic.

I'd like to see Deulofeu remain in the side, 8 games to go in his loan, mom in the last game looking fully fit again... I also think in away games on tight pitches he has the ability to unlock a defence and make something happen.  McGeady and Mirallas I'm still happy with though, so many wide options this season.

Can't argue with that.  Given how dangerous Deulofeu looked at Fulham in the league cup, could be a good move to let him at them again.  More end product is needed though!

Would be great to get a couple of early goals.

Come on Everton, lets fucking do this

Seem to be trying to be more direct and catching them on the break rather than being possession obsessed. In fairness most of us have been calling for that but so far it's been ineffective. Allowing Fulham more of the ball is giving them confidence. It's open at least, we need to win this and I think Martinez is gambling at trying to force a win.

Ozzy will score in the next 10 mins.

He's not the player I would single out. You have to give Fulham credit, they've played well generally we've been second best. You have to remember they are playing for their premiership status here. We need to compete more and try and cut down the balls they've delivered in to the box, far too many balls whipped in. Full backs need to get tighter.

Deulofeu been putting them in that area all game

Only thing is, thats been the only ball that has been anywhere near convertable. He plays them too close to the keeper at the front post all too often.

It looks good on the eye but most of his balls just look dangerous, without actually giving anybody a chance to get on the end of them so I understand why players dont gamble on it.

we've been dragged down to their level

they've pressed us and harassed us, which we know we don't like and it upsets our flow

need to get the ball on the deck, keep some possession, and get some movement going off the ball so that we can move forward with pace and fluidity like we did on Tuesday

If we can get a goal then they're chasing the game and it opens up so we'll end up with 3 or 4.  If they get one then we'll struggle to equalise as they'll just park the bus.

I know it won't be the popular choice but get Deulefeu off for McGeady and with him, Osman and Barkley behind Lukaku we might actually be able to keep hold of the ball.

Deulefeu is undoubtably talented but not the type of player we need today, we need to keep calm, play the ball and quiet down this crowd. If it is still 0-0 15 minutes into the second half, Fulham will get nervous and mistakes will start to creep in.

Problem is we have nothing in the middle. Osmsn getting bullied off the ball so easily, and Barkley too high up the pitch so he's rarely involved. As a result we aren't progressing the ball effectively from our own half, and our only outlet has been down the right.

Personally I'd take off Barry or McCarthy for McGeady, stick him on the left and then put Ross in the middle a little deeper. Should give us more options/balance going forward.

Out of the starters well done to John Stones and James McCarthy. 2 youngsters who really manned up today

Spot on.  MOM take your pick from Naismith, Stones, McCarthy or Howard.  Gotta be the milky bar kid tho I think ;)

Naismith completely transformed that game, absolutely fucking incredible when he came on.

I've never been his biggest fan, but give him his credit I'd say that was probably his best performance in an Everton shirt, was unlucky not to get a hat trick.

The Fulham goal was good but how on earth a foul was not given on Naismith is beyond me.

Howard kept us in it at 1-1

But what impressed me most was how we didn't fold after the equalizer.

McGeady was a great sub infact all three subs did their bit, cracker of a pass to set up Mirallas.

All in all a vital win there, momentum is no doubt in our favor now.

If we beat the Arse its right on.

We were crap for most of it. The subs and Stones (who looks like he could play anywhere) were the difference

Think maybe we need Naismith playing every week. He gets about the pitch and makes himself available. We lack that movement from elsewhere.

By the end we could have had 5 or 6 and as terrible as we were Fulham never opened us up

Roll on next week. We'll have to be a lot better than this though

Brilliant win today even though our laboured start had me worried we would mess up.  Credit to Martinez with his subs today all 3 changed the game in our favour. Osman cannot play 2 games in a week though and there is no way Deulofeu is ready to go back to Barca. 

Naismith was excellent when he came on.  I think its the fact that he's up to full fitness, a couple of goals have given him confidence and Martinez doesn't shove him out wide in games.  I still think there is a bit more to come from him next season - his movement is superb.

Hopefully Ross' knock isn't too bad and he's back for Arsenal.

Yeah I've been thinking this for a while, when Jags is fit we can justifiably rest Distin. Stones has been great and will be fantastic in the future.

Him along with Coleman and McCarthy really have that winning attitude and that's a great thing for young players to have.

Post by: hill135 on March 30, 2014, 10:00:30 PM
The contrast between today and the same fixture last season is clear.

Last season we were winning 2-1 from two Fellaini goals. As it got closer to the end we sat deeper and deeper, inviting pressure until they got an equaliser from a defensive error on our part. It finished 2-2. Today when winning 2-1 we continued to play our football and we rewarded with a third goal which killed it as a contest.

We've gone from conceding the most in the last ten minutes last season, to scoring the most in the last ten minutes this; from losing points in the last ten, to winning them.

This is a result of the manager's approach, and it's why we're on course to break our Prem points total record.

I overslept, thank fuck I had set the DVR just in case.  Never caught all the way up to live feed so couldn't join the match thread live.

Timmy saved our bacon completely.  I don't think Naisy even gets the chance to be heroic if not for Howard keeping us in the game.  Thus, he gets my MotM vote, though can't quibble with anyone voting for Naisy.

I forget which game it was when Distin REALLY bailed out Stones when he had an off day.  Stones repaid the favor today, and then some.

What a beautiful, intelligent pass from McGeady to set up the winner.  He's been immense lately, and our quality bench showings have me much less anxious about managing the extra Europa League games.

It needs pointing out what a commendable job Lukaku does being excited for his teammates when they score.  The kind of unselfishness you don't often see from such a yoyung player.  Partly why I am so keen to make him ours longterm.

I genuinely loved seeing a cb walking out of defence in control, going passed people and spreading the play. He has a very very bright future

It's actually quite scary to imagine what a beast we could have on our hands if John Stones continues to progress at the rate he is now. Centre Halves tend to reach their peak quite late as their reading of the game improves. To have the quality and arrogance that he has now just getting better and better as his reading of the game improves is just frightening.

The big thing for me today with stones was he came up against a highly rated 20yo and a highly rated 17yo but looked head and shoulders above.... Almost like a seasoned prem player. Then you remember he is only 19 himself

Honestly I was really impressed with Dembele, if Richardson could finish then we might have been talking about a disappointing result.

I was disappointed when Richardson went off.

this was an enjoyable match and a good atmosphere, both teams had many chances, and some scary moments in the defence, i was very happy to see naismith score although he should have scored one more, fulham  tried very hard and  howard made good saves,  . coleman had a tough game. mirallas looked good, hope barkley isn;t injured too bad. anyway a fine day and glad to finally be able to celeebrate a win at the final whistle. cheer and all the best.  ;)
