Fulham returned to winning ways at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals from Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel.

Fulham returned to winning ways at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals from Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel. 

 

It was goalless at the break as a Sunny Craven Cottage waited only seconds in the second-half for Cairney to finish off a nice cut back from Babel. 

 

The flying Dutchman doubled the Whites lead when he burst through the Everton defence at speed and poked it past Jordan Pickford in the 69thminute to secure the victory.  

 

Scott Parker made one change to his starting XI bringing in Timothy Fosu-Mensah for Cyrus Christie, on the bench 16-year-old Harvey Elliott was handed a spot as a substitute for the first time in the Premier League. 

 

It was an unchanged starting line-up for Marco Silva’s Everton after the Toffees defeated Arsenal 1-0 the previous weekend. 

 

Fulham got proceedings underway and looked the livelier side in the opening ten minutes however the visitors looked to overload the Whites down the flanks when they could. 

 

In the 12thminute Cairney played a smart ball through as Aleksandar Mitrović beat the offside trap and battled with Phil Jagielka before getting his shot off. Unfortunately for Fulham the Everton defence did well to regroup and Mitrović’s effort was not very powerful as Pickford scooped up the shot. 

 

The visitors began to grow in confidence and Bernard provided some trickery before testing Rico with a solid shot 20 minutes into the game. 

 

Fulham hit back immediately as Mitrović almost headed in Babel’s corner only for Pickford to pull out a great instinctive save to tip it behind.

 

With half-an-hour gone Fulham were again threatening as Cairney swung in a beautiful cross from the left but Calum Chambers couldn’t guide the header in and Kurt Zouma actually blocked it with his own head. 

 

Three minutes later the pressure was on again, Pickford had to punch clear a dangerous cross from Fosu-Mensah and then André-Frank Zambo Anguissa picked up the rebound but had his shot blocked from close-range. 

 

After some great interplay between Babel and Chambers, Fulham’s Serbian Powerhouse teed up a shot on the edge of the box but he rifled his effort against the cross bar with three minutes to go until the break. 

 

Richarlison was booked in the 44thminute for a late challenge on Cairney as the Fulham captain was on the move. 

 

The visitors had one final chance to score before the half-time whistle but Dominic Calvert-Lewin failed to connect with Seamus Coleman’s low cross. 

 

It didn’t even take a minute of second-half football for Fulham to take the lead as Babel mesmerised the Everton defence before cutting it back for Cairney to fire in with a great finish inside the box. 

 

Tim Ream was booked in the 48thminute for bringing down Richarlison on the charge. 

 

Everton came very close to levelling the scores in the 59thminute when Calvert-Lewin beat the offside trap but scraped the post with his shot. 

 

Fosu-Mensah left the pitch with an injury which required Parker to make a change in the 65thminute as Christie came on. 

 

Babel doubled the Whites lead when he tucked the ball past Pickford after a scathing run up the middle of the pitch in the 69thminute. 

 

Everton made a change as Ademola Lookman replaced Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 74thminute. 

 

Babel went off for Jean Michaël Seri and was given a great applause by the Fulham fans in the 82ndminute, Everton then made a double change with Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott coming on for Richarlison and Bernard. 

 

Parker made his third change in the 89thminute as Denis Odoi came on for the impressive Anguissa.  

 

The fourth official put up his board for eight minutes of added time at the end of the game but the Fulham faithful were in fine voice to see their team over the line.
