Fulham continued their winless run at Goodison Park as Everton secured a 3-0 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Fulham continued their winless run at Goodison Park as Everton secured a 3-0 victory on Saturday afternoon. 

 

Fulham have never won a point at Everton in the Premier League era and second-half goals from Cenk Tosun and a Gyfli Sigurdsson brace sent the Whites home with nothing. 

 

In fact, Sigurdsson could’ve had a hat-trick but his penalty hit the crossbar in the second-half before claiming his two goals later on. 

 

Slaviša Jokanović made four changes to the team that faced Watford last Saturday in the Premier League with Alfie Mawson and Calum Chambers dropping out of the Matchday squad, midfielders Stefan Johansen and Kevin McDonald were named on the bench. 

 

Fresh from their Carabao Cup success against Millwall, goal-scorer Joe Bryan returned to the side as did Tim Ream and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa, there was also a recall for Denis Odoi with Marcus Bettinelli captaining the side. 

 

Everton boss Marco Silva named an unchanged starting XI to the side that faced Arsenal the previous weekend.

 

Fulham were forced into an early change with just seven minutes on the clock as Timothy Fosu-Mensah was forced off through injury and another Carabao Cup goal-scorer, Cyrus Christie, replaced him. 

 

Five minutes later Fulham spurned a glorious chance as Ryan Sessegnon beat his man down the left and squared the ball to André Schürrle but the German’s shot flew over the bar. 

 

In the 19thminute Theo Walcott tested Bettinelli as he cut in from the right and shot from the edge of the box but Fulham’s ‘keeper was up to the task and Odoi cleared the parried rebound. 

 

Christie made his way into the referee’s book in the 29thminute for bringing down Richarlison on the break. 

 

Three minutes before the half-time whistle Sessegnon was played in on goal by Jean Michaël Seri but the young winger hit the crossbar from close range. 

 

After a speculative corner was defended Fulham countered through Sessegnon and Aleksandar Mitrović took the shot on from distance but failed to trouble Jordan Pickford in the final act of the first-half. 

 

Almost immediately after half-time Richarlison found himself unmarked at the back-post following a corner but his acrobatic effort wasn’t on target. 

 

In the 50thminute Everton were awarded a penalty by the assistant referee when Odoi brought down Dominic Calvert-Lewin, thankfully Sigurdsson blasted his effort against the same crossbar that denied Sessegnon previously.

 

Cenk Tosun replaced Calvert-Lewin at the helm of the Everton attack shortly after the missed penalty. 

 

Sigurdsson redeemed himself in the 57thminute when his low drive from outside the box found its way into the bottom corner of the goal to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. 

 

Fulham wasted a chance of their own on the hour mark when Schürrle burst through and squared it to Luciano Vietto but the forward took a heavy touch and Pickford gathered the ball. 

 

Three minutes later Vietto was off and on in his place was Tom Cairney who was returning from injury. 

 

Everton doubled their lead in the 66thminute when Tosun headed home from close range after a nice ball from Walcott found him at the back-post. 

 

With ten minutes to go, Walcott battled down the right with Ream before finally getting a shot off, however Bettinelli got down quickly to deny the winger. 

 

Fulham made their final change in the 86thminute as Seri was taken off and Floyd Ayité was called upon. 

 

Silva made his second change of the game with Bernard coming on for Richarlison in the 87thminute and almost instantly he set up Sigurdsson for his second following a nice ball pulled back across the box for his teammate.

 

The Icelandic international was then replaced in the 90th minute by Morgan Schneiderlin and the final whistle followed shortly after.
