Tip Fulham - Everton
Fulham welcome Everton to Craven Cottage this Sunday for a Premier League showdown. Both sides will be desperate to bounce back from defeats suffered before the international break. The hosts are 17th in the table after picking up four points from their opening eight games. Everton, who made some eye-catching signings during the summer, James Rodriguez being the standout acquisition, are seventh with 13 points from eight games. The Toffees, coached by former Real Madrid and AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti, started the season in record-breaking form, a seven-game win streak making it the club's best opening to a campaign since 1894. Although it broke the streak, a 2-2 draw with Liverpool was a respectable result considering both the quality of the opposition and Everton's record in that fixture in recent years. However, it kickstarted a four-game run without a win for Everton, who lost their following three games. Prior to this abysmal run, Everton had won four successive away games in all competitions. With Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front, they always have a chance of turning things around. The forward is tied at the top of the Premier League scorers chart with eight goals.
Fulham have lost six of their eight Premier League games thus far, but their last home outing resulted in victory. A 2-0 win over fellow promoted side West Brom lifted the gloom surrounding their chances of survival. Their following match against West Ham saw them lose the game in bizarre circumstances. The Hammers broke the deadlock in stoppage time before conceding a penalty, which Ademola Lookman wasted with a fluffed Panenka effort. The former Everton attacker will be hoping to redeem himself this weekend. However, we see chances for Lookman and co. being scarce in a game that the away side will control thanks to their superior midfield. Only four teams have better passing accuracy than Everton, who average 52% possession in Premier League games this season. We foresee the away side getting back to winning ways.
