Home wins have become common place in Premier League meetings between Everton and Fulham and there is no reason to stray from the norm this season with David Moyes’ team 10/11 to secure the three points.
The fixture will bring back good memories for Moyes as he began his tenure as Everton manager with a victory over Fulham.
Meanwhile, Fulham have an absolutely horrific record at Goodison Park, losing all of their last 17 games at the ground and failing to gain any sort of result since a goalless draw in 1959.
Some 17 of the last 19 fixtures between the pair have been won by the home team, which does not offer much of a chance to Fulham.
Fulham are 3/1 to beat Everton, but there are many more statistics that also count against their chances of claiming maximum points.
Included in these are that they have not triumphed in any game on Merseyside since 2001, while manager Mark Hughes has won just one of his last nine league matches against Moyes.
However, Fulham have taken a liking to drawing games this season and it is 12/5 that they leave Everton with their 15th draw of the Premier League campaign.
To Score At Any Time
Everton and Fulham have both seen midfielders chip in with valuable goals this season and this could mean that some value can be found in the market for players to score at any time in the 90 minutes.
Tim Cahill is Everton’s top scorer despite missing a chunk of the season representing Australia at the Asian Cup and is 7/4 in the Premier League odds to score in the game.
Fulham’s Clint Dempsey has matched Cahill’s nine-goal tally, with both being particularly prolific with headers.
Dempsey is 9/4 to strike in the 90 minutes, with Everton’s Louis Saha leading the market at 1/1.
