Clashes between Everton and Fulham in Liverpool have nearly always produced the same outcome – a Toffees win. The west Londoners have never tasted victory at Goodison Park in a league game after 27 attempts.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be buoyed after their thrilling FA Cup over Tottenham in midweek and will go fifth with a win, but will play today without star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Scott Parker meanwhile will hope to pick up his first Premier League win since an unexpected triumph away to Leicester on November 30 as Fulham look to narrow the gap to 17th-placed Newcastle to seven points.

Fulham don’t have a good record at Goodison Park to put it mildly. In 27 league games, they have yet to win.
They will be up against it again tonight, but can draw some comfort from the fact Calvert-Lewin, who is comfortably the Toffees’ top scorer and netted twice in the reverse fixture, is out.
Everton (4-2-3-1): Olsen; Coleman, Holgate, Godfrey, Digne; Doucoure, Gomes; Rodriguez, Davies, Sigurdsson; Richarlison. Subs: Keane, Allan, King, Mina, Iwobi, Nkounkou, Bernard, Virginia, Onyango.
Fulham (4-2-3-1): Areola, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Reed, Lemina; De Cordova-Reid, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman. Subs: Hector, Odoi, Rodak, Ream, Cavaleiro, Onomah, Anguissa, Kongolo, Robinson.
The visitors meanwhile make two changes, as new loan signing Josh Maja makes his full debut in place of Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has tested positive for Covid-19. Ola Aina also comes in for former Everton trainee Antonee Robinson.
The Toffees make four changes after their heroic 5-4 extra-time FA Cup win over Tottenham, with Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Andre Gomes and James Rodriguez coming in for Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Alex Iwobi and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Calvert-Lewin misses today’s game after limping off against Spurs with a hamstring injury, while Iwobi, Keane and Mina all drop to the bench as Carlo Ancelotti introduces some fresh legs after Wednesday’s gruelling encounter.
Rodriguez returns after coming off against Manchester United midway through the second half with a calf strain.
