Fulham - Everton Betting Preview: High-flying Toffees can shoot down Cottagers

Roberto Martinez's men are in the hunt for a Champions League qualification berth and our tipster expects the visitors to net at least twice at Craven Cottage on Sunday
Everton kept alive their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League with an impressive 3-0 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park in midweek and Roberto Martinez’s men will hope to collect another three points when they take on bottom-of-the-table Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees have taken maximum points from each of their last four league matches and can be backed at 4/5 (1.80) with William Hill to claim victory at Craven Cottage this weekend.

Fulham, of course, are desperate for victory as they seek to pull themselves out of the relegation zone and Felix Magath’s charges are available at 17/5 (4.40) with William Hill to claim a much-needed three points here. The draw is chalked up at 13/5 (3.60) with the same firm this weekend.

Romelu Lukaku has been in fine form for Roberto Martinez’s men in recent weeks, notching an impressive four goals in his last five matches and it's no surprise to see that the 20-year-old Belgian is priced up at 4/1 (5.0) to net the opening goal of the game in west London.

Lukaku can be backed at even money (2.0) to score at any time this weekend while those keen to side with Roberto Martinez’s men may be tempted by William Hill’s “headline offer” 2/1 (3.0) quote for the on-loan Chelsea striker to net at any time in a win for the Toffees.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell is the top scorer for the Cottagers with six goals thus far this term and those looking to back Felix Magath’s side can snap up the sizable 16/1 (17.0) “headline offer” from William Hill for the 31-year-old to net at any time in a win for the home side.

Fulham have leaked no fewer than 70 goals in the Premier League already this season and have managed just one clean sheet in their last 16 league outings so there may be value in backing the in-form Toffees to score at least twice this weekend.

Everton have notched eight goals in their last three league matches and can be trusted to find the net at least twice against the Cottagers so punters are advised to snap up the generous 3/4 (1.75) quote from William Hill this weekend.
