Dominic Calvert Lewin Scores Two As Everton Punish Sloppy Fulham, Who Miss Another Penalty
“Patterson is back in the squad this week. It’s a great [selection] Chief. Exactly what I wanted. Nathan was great this season until the unfortunate injury. That allowed Seamus to come in, find fitness and performance. At the peak, against Zaha, who was one of the toughest players to play against Istana last week, it was a great match between the two boys – here. One who has been for a long time, who will come? “[EFC]
Marco Silva will face his former club for the first time since leaving in 2019. Despite having won two of their last three games against Everton, Everton will be hoping for a comeback win against Fulham for the first time. Away from home, Dominic Calvert-Lewin won by 3 goals to 2 goals.
Lampard was impressive with the XI that beat Crystal Palace last weekend. Nathan Patterson is a good player off the bench and has a high chance of coming out of the game at a high enough level to build strength from his ankle injury. Patterson’s return means Salomon Rondon’s team is gone.
Although Mina first participated in the team’s training, Everton’s Bengo Frey, Remina, Rimena and Andrew Townson are still missing.
Fulham Vs Everton As It Happened
Fulham boss Marco Silva made two changes to the team that won 3-2 at Leeds, with Neeskens Kebano and Issa Diop returning to the starting line-up, while Harry Wilson and Tosin Adarabio came off the bench.
Fulham defender Kenny Tete has missed 5 games due to a hamstring injury. Daniel James returned after missing last week’s game against parent club Leeds United. Both of them put it on the bench.
In front of nearly 30,000 people, Everton started in a 4-3-3 formation that mirrored Fulham’s formation. Everton were in a good position and there was reason to cheer when Alex Iwobi teed up Calvert Lewin on goal, but the play fell apart. With Gray and Gordon switching frequently, Everton clearly prefer to play up front. Former Everton player Anthony Robinson made a good block on Gordon. Then Demarai Gray’s hard shot and Leno’s save. The start for Everton was as bright as his shirt.
Fulham eventually turned Kibano away and played a good ball to Williams only for Pitford to equalise. The resulting corner forced Pickford into another save. Five corners in the opening nine minutes showed how the game started. A long diagonal ball from Tim Ream into the path of Gray or Gordon on the right was clearly the plan to break the Cottagers apart. In the 20th minute, Gray crossed the box and the ball was blocked by DCL and Gordon.

Aleksandar Mitrovic received a fourth yellow card for a knife tackle on Gana Gueye. VAR checked for a possible red, but no change. The Blues continued to press and it was only a superb clearance from Conor Coady to keep the game level when Robinson burst down the wing on the Fulham counter-attack.
Mykolenko passed the ball and Coady had another chance, Coady unsuccessfully trying to get a foot on the chain ball. Both teams then had their chances in the final minutes of the first half. A good cross from Gray to Tarkowski was finished by Calvert Lewin who headed the ball into the waiting hands of Bernd Leno. Gordon also had a chance but his shot went over the bar. Everton certainly had their chances, ending the half with 44% possession and 4 goals from 8 shots. The second half needed more involvement from Alex Iwobi.

In the first minute of the second half restart, Gana Gueye brought down Willian, but Gaye had nothing when he made contact with the ball. Mitrovic latched on to a wonderful cross from Willian but couldn’t hit the target. Williams and Robinson started with Coleman on the left. Williams cut inside and made a good save from Pickford. Fulham took the lead in the first ten minutes.

As the hour approached, Everton were awarded a free-kick after a superb cross from Mykolenko. Demarai Gray passes the ball to Amadou Onana and fires a powerful shot. Everton asserted themselves and controlled the midfield. Lampard was the first to move, and after Mitrovic had two chances to lead, Nathan Patterson came on. Lampard brought on James Garner for the final 30 minutes to replace Gana Gueye. Fulham responded by signing former Reds Harry Wilson.
Calvert-Lewin had a shot on goal in the 70th minute, but the offside flag disallowed the goal. With Blues and Tom Cairney and Kenny Tete joining Dwight McNeil at home, the team pushed the pack further. The game needs quality time to make a difference. After receiving a gift from Gordon, William had a chance but was blocked by Pickford. Fulham began to create most of the chances, but that did not stop the noise from the Everton men.
The final five minutes come and a mistake or a moment of quality will decide the game. Neil Maupay entered the fray after replacing Anthony Gordon in succession. Aleksandar Mitrovic had another goal-scoring effort that put him in double figures in the game. The result remained unchanged for three minutes after the final whistle.
The team is starting to pick and an unchanged side for the third game shows that Lampard is increasingly clear of his best eleven. With only two league games left before the World Cup, getting the starting 11 more time together is a good idea. Knowing the starting 11 gives you a better understanding of how Lampard can affect the game. Everton’s bench also has quality, and the changes they’ve made have given them chances to win in attack.
Everton Vs Fulham: Match Preview
Great to see Everton willing to give Fulham a show. Although Everton are not at home, the confidence they have clearly created against Crystal Palace is strong. It is a match that Everton can’t drive with their backs at home away from home. Having Calvert-Lewin in the box makes his teammates a clear target. Mykolenko bombed down the wing and crossed the ball often. Petro’s return will also improve. Unfortunately, That threat disappeared in the second half as Fulham took the lead to Chelsea.
This game is another game that will strengthen our defense from the last game. Every real chance came from Jordan Pickford’s outstanding save. The panic and chaos of last year’s defensive lineup has been replaced by confidence and composure. Fulham’s number of corners last year certainly let us down. This year, the in-and-out or swing givers match the strength of the approach. Coady, Tarkowski, Gueye and Onana form a central block that has allowed just 12 goals in 13 games. It was his first clean sheet at home this season and his first clean sheet in 23 home games.
Pickford, Coady and Tarkowski were big on defense. It’s good to see Demarai Gray playing well but Alex Iwobi is gone and the last few weeks have not affected his form. Today I have an opportunity and I promise to move forward. The draw dropped Everton to 12th place in the table. Good away clean sheet Next is Leicester at home.
