Date: Saturday, 29th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton will be coming into this home matchup having lost their last two EPL matches. They are still entangled in poor performance and inconsistencies which have seen them garner only 6 points in the 6played league games. Notably, they have won only one game and they will be striving to bounce back in this home fixture.
Nevertheless, this game may be a bit difficult for Everton who will be without four of their best players who are out with injury. These players include James McCarthy, Phil Jagielka, Andres Gomes, and Beni Baningime. Yerry Mina is expected to make his debut in this home match.
Fulham is also experiencing the same problem as their opponents in this game. They are inconsistent and keep on conceding easily. Moreover, their defensive line has serious coordination problems which have seen them concede in almost each of the played games. They are currently in the 15th position in the league standings after winning one and settling for a draw in 2 fixtures.
The Cottagers will be without Neeskens Kebano who remains sidelined with an ankle problem. In addition, Captain Tom Cairney is still struggling to recover from a foot injury of his own the thus he remains a doubt for this away game. Fulham will be striving to come out of this game with something, even a draw will be a good result for them.
