Team Preview 

Everton fights out against Fulham at Craven Cottage to find their one-month-old glory as they lost three consecutive games after a dream start in 2020-21. Everton picked up 12 points from the first 4 matches, and they grabbed the top spot. They also held champions Liverpool for 2-2- draw. In the last week's game of October, they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Southampton, following a 2-1 loss to Newcastle. In the first week clash against United, Everton couldn’t take their lead further. In reply to Bernard’s 19th-minute strike, Bruno Fernandes struck twice in the first half to give United an advantage. In injury-time, Cavani netted one more goal to give United a 3-1 victory. 

In their last three defeats, Everton conceded 7 goals, out of which four goals came in the first half. It draws a big question on Everton’s defense. Due to a positive start, Carlo Ancelotti’s side still stands at the 7th spot. In all three defeats, Richarlison was absent, but the attitude in the loss put a worrying sign on Ancelotti. The Toffees are more reliant on Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but the comeback of Richarlison will give some relaxation time to Carlo Ancelotti. 

Meanwhile, Fulham are on the verge of relegation, just one point ahead of West Brom who will take on United at Old Trafford on the same night. The Merseyside outfit can back their defense, but they need big improvement. After winning just one game out of eight, Fulham are in deep trouble. In their last outing against West Ham, Ademola Lookman's late effort opened Fulham's chances, but Tomas Soucek’s injury-time goal delivered a heartbreak. 

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s performance would be necessary for the Cottagers. Scott Parker’s side has a tough assignment against Leicester City and Manchester City. The current performance can give them a spot in the relegation zone. In the last edition, Cottagers defeated Everton 2-0 to end the 10-matches winless run.
