Fulham v Everton

12th April 2019, 13:12 by Jack Ogalbe

Marco Silva's Everton can boost their push for seventh place when they travel to relegated Fulham.

The Toffees seem set to end the season on a high after a run of three straight victories and Silva now appears to be getting things right after some uncertain spells during his maiden campaign on Merseyside.

In contrast, Fulham are a team in flux, with no clarity over whether interim boss Scott Parker will be given the job permanently, and that could be reflected in Saturday's team selection as they look ahead to next season.

Loanees Andre Schurrle and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are pushing for recalls but may be overlooked as they are not expected to stay at Craven Cottage. Alfie Mawson and Floyd Ayite are still some way from fitness, while Marcus Bettenelli is a long-term absentee.

Silva is likely to stick with the same XI that beat Arsenal 1-0 on Sunday although Michael Keane is back available after being a late withdrawal from that victory due to illness.

Everton will be confident of taking all three points, having lost just one of their last six at the Cottage, while they ran out the 3-0 winners in the reverse game. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored either side of Cenk Tosun's strike after the Iceland international had earlier missed a penalty.

Another victory by that scoreline would see the Toffees win four consecutive Premier League matches without conceding for only the second time, while Fulham are hoping to end a run of conceding more than once in their last 13.
