This Saturday Fulham welcome Everton to Craven Cottage in a bid to get back on the winning track after two draws. Confidence will certainly be high after a superb performance against Leeds United last week, and Fulham will be looking to take out the frustration of gaining only a point on the men from Goodison Park.

One man who came close to breaking the deadlock last week was John Collins, with a second half free kick of real quality, and as an ex-Evertonian he will certainly be looking to put one over on the Scousers this weekend. Battling along with John Collins in the midfield will be the mercurial talent of a certain Paul Gascoigne.

Although certain to receive some banter from the Stevenage Road Enclosure, Gazza is still a real crowd pleaser and certain to entertain. These two old heads will be looking to show they can still cut it at the top level. If you think they can, and fancy one of them to score, why not back the "Still Got It" Special at 5/2. For just a £10 stake at Fulham Bet you could be strolling down to the Crabtree for a post match pint with £35 in your pocket!

One recent piece of good news for Fulham fans is that "Harry Bayles" has just signed a new contract. The crowd favourite from Stockwell has been in awesome form this year, with his pace and power causing no end of trouble for many Premiership defences.

Of course, scoring against the other team in Fulham didn't do his popularity any harm either! A nice scorecast of "Harry" to score first in a 2-0 win could make him even more popular.... £10 at 33/1 with Fulham Bet could see you toasting him to the tune of £340!!!

Another player who has come back into form recently is Louis Saha. His speed, strength, and trickery will give the Everton defence plenty to think about. The close resemblance of his latest hairstyle to a pint of Guiness has also afforded him the nickname "Pure Genius", and remember "Good things come to those who wait." Could now be the time for Louis' first Premiership hat-trick? The "King Louis" Special at 25/1 gives value, (a £10 bet could leave you with £260) and could be well worth a punt!

The Scousers have a lot to thank Harry Enfield for, including the association with shell suits and dodgy perms! Another is the "Calm down, calm down!" phrase. This weekend we will see if the Everton players have tempers to match their fictional counterparts. If you fancy there to be any Everton red cards, back your judgement on the "Calm down, Calm down!" Special at 8/1....... Just think of the amount of perms and shell suits you could get with the winnings!!!

As ever you can enjoy making money on a Fulham victory, and make it even sweeter by backing Sunderland to beat Chelsea in a double:

Fulham to beat Everton 8/11
Sunderland to beat Chelsea 7/4

A £10 bet could see you holding the folding to the tune of £47.50. Normally we'd quote a treble including a QPR defeat, but they aren't in action this weekend as they are already out of the FA Cup .....what a shame!! How times have changed........
