Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Craven Cottage will host Sunday’s football game between Fulham and Everton. The Cottagers did well to beat WBA in their last home game in the Premier League, but they were more than unfortunate not to grab something from the London derby against West Ham. Despite failing to convert a late penalty in the local derby, Aleksandar Mitrovic is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts against Everton.
The Toffees made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to London. Claudio Ranieri’s troops are on a three-game losing run in the Premier League, and seeing that both teams are likely to go for a win in Sunday’s clash, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. Mario Lemina is rated doubtful for the hosts, while Kamara misses the game through suspension. There are no absentees in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Neeskens Kebano):
Despite the fact that he was born in France Neeskens Kebano represents Congo on the international stage. Kebano has 6 caps for France U20 team, but made his debut for the first team with Congo on 15 October, 2014. The right-footed midfielder scored on his debut and it has to be noted that Congo defeated Ivory Coast 4-3 back then.
Kebano started his club career at Paris Saint-Germain, playing eight league games for les Parisiens in Ligue 1. After ending his loan spell with Caen he joined Charleroi in 2013 and he scored 36 goals in 77 league appearances for the Belgian outfit. Genk scouts spotted him during the 2014/2015 season and he moved to the fellow Belgian side in the summer of 2015.
After spending one season at Genk, he signed a three-year contract with Fulham on 26 August, 2016. He made his Fulham debut the next day against Blackburn Rovers. Reports in England said that he terrorised Blackburn defence. His contract with the Cottagers expires on 30 June, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four campaigns.
The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987.
The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955.
In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
