Let's go Toffee-mad on Saturday
The stats are not in Fulham's favour, Everton have a one-hundred percent home record against Fulham in the Premier League. In nine meetings at Goodison Park, Fulham have never left with a point.
Even though Everton have been inconsistent this season, they are in good form and the 21/20 for the home win looks cracking value. Fulham are in good form though, they have only lost one of their last nine Premier League matches and they are 8/11 to either win or draw in the double chance market.
Fulham have only been defeated once in their last six games. Fulham used to be appalling on the road but they have become more resilient under the leadership of Mark Hughes.
Hughes has impressed whilst manager of Fulham and he has been linked with the Bayern Munich job lately. They have drawn eight times in the league away from home season, the most in the Premier League. B
Fulham are still without Zamora and Everton have been very inconsistent in attack. You can back the 0-0 at 15/2 but that is too short for me. The last meeting between these two sides ended goalless in September.
Both teams to score is even money but both teams are not renowned for scoring goals this season.
One player that has caught my eye lately is the born again Damien Duff. He is showing glimpses of the form that got him a move to Chelsea and he is 5/1 to score anytime. He forged a good partnership with Gudjohnsen at Chelsea and they can build on it at Fulham.
Gudjohnson struggled at Stoke because he is not suited to their style of play. He can never play as a lone striker and he needs a target man to play off, he can have the same relationship with Zamora that he used to have with Hasselbaink at the Blues. Gudjohnsen is 9/1 to grab the last goal in the match.
Everton have injury trouble, they are without the influential Arteta and Tim Cahill. Fellaini is also missing with an ankle problem. Everton sold Pienaar in the transfer window and they could be a little lightweight in the midfield.
One player who could be playing his last match as a Toffee against Fulham is Jack Rodwell. He has been linked with a big summer move to Man United and there have been rumours circulating that the move has already been verbally agreed. He has great control and he is 11/1 to grab the first goal.
I would back the Everton win at 21/20, Fulham have not won at Everton for years and this trend looks set to continue. Everton can be inconsistent but they are always stronger in the latter stage of the season.
