Fulham haven’t won a league game in almost three months now, and they will need something resembling a miracle to beat Everton this weekend.
No, not because Everton are supremely better than Fulham, even though it could be argued that they are, it’s because Goodison Park is seemingly a cursed ground for the Whites.
Amazingly, Fulham have not once won at Goodison Park in the league, and perhaps most remarkably, they have lost 22 games in a row when playing against the Toffees at their home ground.
It’s safe to say that an Everton win is likely this weekend, but as ever, you can never write anything off in football.
If Parker is to end the Whites’ hoodoo here, he’ll have to get his team selection spot on, and with that in mind, we’ve had a go at predicted Fulham’s starting XI for this one.
We expect Fulham to make three changes for this fixture.
Kenny Tete returns at right wing-back in place of Bobby Decordova-Reid, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa returns in midfield in place of Mario Lemina, and Josh Maja gets his first ever start for the Whites, taking Ivan Cavaleiro’ spot.
Fulham gave Everton a good game earlier this season, eventually losing 3-2, and one man who starred that day is Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who we’ve earmarked to start down the right-wing for this one.
However, perhaps the area to watch out for in this one is down the left as Ademola Lookman and Antonee Robinson return to face their old club in a game they’ll undoubtedly be desperate to win.
It’s going to be a tough task for Fulham, but they’re in desperate need for a win here as their quest to survive in the Premier League continues.
