Everton vs Fulham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
The Toffees are possibly the team with the most confidence in the competition at the moment. They are fresh off back-to-back clutch performances against two titans of the English top flight.
They also have two matches in hand, and are placed seventh in the table. They also need a surplus of just three points to climb into the top-four zone.
Moreover, the eighth-placed Tottenham are pitted against Manchester City this weekend, and this gives Carlo Ancelotti’s men further chance to strengthen their position in the top-most tier.
Meanwhile, the Cottagers are one of the worst teams in the whole league. They are placed 18th in the table, and need a surplus of eight points to get out of the relegation zone.
They are also a recently promoted club, and so far have won just two games this campaign.
On top of that, the Toffees also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue. In addition, they have also scored in plenty in these face-to-face meetings.
By the looks of things, expect Everton to deliver a winning performance this Sunday.
Everton vs Fulham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ancelotti’s men had won five of the preceding seven overall encounters, and they had also recorded 12 of the former 15 clashes.
- They have scored three or more goals in four of the former five meetings.
- Since 2000, the hosts have a 100% winning record at this stadium, barring a single 1-1 draw.

Everton vs Fulham Prediction
The Toffees recorded a 3-3 draw the last match-day on the road, against Manchester United, with an injury time equalizer.
In the meantime, Scott Parker’s men were held to a goalless draw at home, by West Ham.
Going on, Ancelotti’s men were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 15 overall matches, and they had scored a total of ten goals from their last three fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a 14-game winless run, and they have won just once on the road this whole season.
And most importantly, the Toffees have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings over the years at this venue, disregarding a single 1-1 draw in 2004.
Considering these stats, expect Everton to deliver a commendable performance this Sunday at the Goodison Park.
