Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After failing to spoil Manchester United’s party at Goodison Park, Everton will look to move away from the danger zone when they take on Fulham on Matchday 31. Sean Dyche’s troops produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and seeing that the Cottagers are still without top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic (suspension), home win should be considered. Midfielder Abdoulaye Traore has yet to serve his ban, while both Andros Townsend and Dominic Calvert-Lewin remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Cottagers, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the relegation-threatened hosts. Kebano and Kurzawa are keeping Mitrovic company on the sidelines, while Solomon and Cairney are pushing for recalls to the starting XI. In their last meeting in Liverpool Fulham defeated Everton 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Seamus Coleman):
Quite possibly the most talented footballer to have donned the Republic of Ireland jersey in the second decade of the 21st century, Seamus Coleman is an attacking full-back, who has been one of Everton’s best performers for quite some time.
Plucked from lowly Sligo Rovers in 2009, the highly rated footballer took to Premier League like duck to water and went on to become one of the best right-sided defenders in the league. Coleman has developed a knack for scoring amazing goals, and he already has more than a dozen strikes in the Premier League.
The talented footballer is still waiting for his first goal in the Republic of Ireland national team, but it is only a matter of time before he ends his international drought, even though that is not exactly his main job. The general consensus is that Coleman should have left Everton for a top club earlier in order to realise his full potential, but there is still time for the Irish footballer to grace the biggest stage.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
