Everton vs Fulham LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture tonight
Everton are hosting Fulham at Goodison Park this evening aiming to move up to fifth in the Premier League. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are buoyant following that dramatic FA Cup victory over Tottenham Hotspur in midweek, and will be hoping to continue that momentum here – although they will have to do so without top goalscorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who tweaked his hamstring in the Spurs game.
Fulham have put in some promising performances of late but have struggled to turn draws and narrows defeats into much-needed victories. Time is running out for Scott Parker’s side to close the gap to those in safety above them, which stands at 10 points before kick-off, and a win here would be a huge boost to their survival hopes.
Follow all the action from Goodison Park live below, after the conclusion of Arsenal vs Leeds.
