Everton will travel to West London to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon on the back of a solid 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend. The Toffees are hoping to end this campaign with a run of favourable results so Marco Silva’s men will need to be at the top of their game if they are to ensure a win against Scott Parker’s team.

The Merseysiders will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Michael Keane set to return to Silva’s starting XI after he missed out on the game against Arsenal due to injury.

4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Fulham

Defence

Jordan Pickford will lineup in between the sticks for the Merseyside outfit after keeping three successive clean sheets against Chelsea, West Ham United and Arsenal respectively. The English keeper has enjoyed a good run of form of late so he will be quite confident about his chances of restricting the Fulham attackers from scoring a goal.

The centre-back duo of Kurt Zouma and Michael Keane will protect Pickford while operating at the heart of the Toffees defence. However, they would need to find a way to cope with the threat of Aleksander Mitrovic and Ryan Babel this weekend.

Seamus Coleman will continue at right-back while Lucas Digne tries to be creative down the left flank. Phil Jagielka is expected to start on the Everton bench and might come on during the clash if required.

Midfield

Idrissa Gueye and Andre Gomes will feature as the holding midfielders as they look to retain possession for the visitors at the centre of the park. The talented trio of Bernard, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison will play just ahead of them as part of Marco Silva’s attack. 

Bernard managed to score versus the Hammers a few weeks ago so he will look to do the same at Craven Cottage this weekend.

Attack

Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the line for the Merseyside team up front. The Everton youngster put in a man of the match display against the Gunners last Sunday, so he needs to concentrate on keeping up the same level of high performance against the Cottagers on Saturday.

Cenk Tosun might be a part of the Everton bench so he will look to influence the game in the second half if needed.
