Everton vs Fulham | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The Toffees’ fans are not satisfied with the current position of their team, which is why they are expecting a win this Saturday against the newcomers in the league, Fulham. Meanwhile, the Cottagers are slowly catching the right wave, and from game to game, they look more stable. Going home undefeated from Liverpool would be one huge success for them, and a definite confirmation of our claim.
Everton lost last week against Arsenal, 2:0, in London, and at the moment they are occupying the 12th place on the Premiership standings with 6 points from the same number of fixtures. Fulham is behind them with just one point fewer, sitting in the 15th place. They managed to get only a draw at Craven Cottage in the previous round against Watford, 1:1.
The home team hasn’t won in latest four Premier League matches. At first, they had two draws against Bournemouth and Huddersfield, which were followed by two defeats against West Ham and Arsenal. But what really is the biggest disappointment for this team, is the fact that they allowed at least one goal in the latest 11 games. It appears that the weakest part of this assembly is the back line, despite many arrivals in that part of the team. We saw some big names coming to Goodison at the beginning of the season, but for now, there aren’t some improvements. Also, there is one other thing you might want to remember, and it considers goals. In the previous 10 fixtures Everton participated, we saw 8 with over 2.5 goals and the same number of those which ended with both teams to score. The latest one against Arsenal was the first one after a long time which snapped that streak.
Mitro’s on fire. In short, this is what is Fulham all about. The fantastic Serbian striker is tying the first place on the goalscoring list with Eden Hazard, and if he had just a little bit more luck, his figures would have been even higher. Fulham defeated Millwall this Tuesday in the English Football League Cup, 1:3, and that was their first away match this season which ended with a triumph. They really haven’t been that convincing away from Craven Cottage, since they allowed at least two goals in each road trip, and manage to get only one point from nine possible. On the other hand, all those matches were efficient and went over 2.5 goals, with just one who didn’t saw scores on both sides of the pitch.
Latest Team News
We have a minor hospital in Everton. Andre Gomes, Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka, and James McCarthy are ruled out for this match, while Yerry Mina will probably be available. On the other side, Tom Cairney and Kebano Neeskens are not ready to be in the protocol.
When looking at the whole history of clashes between these two sides, you can see that Everton has a better record, with 29 wins in 61 played games. Fulham has 19, while 13 events saw a draw.
Odds and Predictions
The Toffees are absolute favorites, and odds on them are set at 1.72, with a tendency to go down. To see a match without winners is 3.75, and Fulham’s victory is 4.50.
Everton vs Fulham | Top Betting Tip: Draw (2-2)
With all these injured players, and not so good chemistry on the court, Everton’s win in this fixture is highly doubtful. Their best defender, and the English national team member, Jagielka is injured, which will be a huge minus for this team, mainly because he was the only one who could guard Mitrovic and restrain his areal domination. So, we believe that they will concede a couple of goals. On the other hand, Fulham’s defense is also bad, even with all of their players healthy, and Richarlison will have a lot of space to show his talent. Our best pick is over 2.5 goals. Just remember what we said about the previous efficiency of these two clubs. If you want us to predict the final outcome, we choose a draw, with lots of scores, Everton – Fulham 2:2.
