Team news

Fulham will again check on midfielder Mario Lemina, who has been out with a hamstring problem, ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Everton.

Cottagers boss Scott Parker reported no fresh injury problems following the international break, but French forward Aboubakar Kamara will serve out a three-match suspension.

Dutch defender Kenny Tete is stepping up his recovery from a calf problem, along with Terence Kongolo (ankle) but both are not yet ready for a return.

Midfielders Fabian Delph (knock) and Allan (muscle) are fit but defender Seamus Coleman has been ruled out after sustaining an injury in training for the Republic of Ireland.

Long-term absentee Jean-Philippe Gbamin is closing in on a return in the next couple of weeks.

Pitch to Post prediction: Fulham to shock Everton?

The now-regular Pitch to Post preview podcast pitch has come Fulham's way this weekend - with Sky Sports Football reporter Ron Walker predicting the Cottagers to surprise Everton and pick up three points to move further away from the relegation zone.

"I've put Fulham to shock Everton, but given Everton's form, I'm not sure how much of a shock it would be," he told the podcast.

"Fulham's performances haven't really told in terms of results, they've still only got one win, but they are now outside the bottom three, played quite well last time out against West Ham and would have got a draw if Ademola Lookman had scored his penalty, and beat West Brom before that.

"It takes two to tango; Everton have taken one point from their last four games, they looked very fragile last time out against Manchester United. They played quite well until United equalised, but then they went to pieces.

"Scott Parker will see this as an opportunity. Fulham don't have a huge amount to lose with the way they've started, obviously they need points, but anything's a bonus on the results they've had in most of their games so far.

"They were looking like cannon fodder in the opening weeks of the season, but the results haven't reflected in how they've started to turn things around in terms of their overall play."

Jones Knows' prediction

Everton have used 25 players this season, that's more than any team in the Premier League. That has been the major problem for Carlo Ancelotti. The drop off in quality from his first-choice XI to his back-ups make Everton a tough team to assess without knowing precisely who will be starting. The return of Richarlison is an obvious boost as it's been chalk and cheese in terms of performances from the first five games to the last three in which he missed. All those ended in defeat.

Everton

A fourth on the spin could be on the cards too against an improving Fulham, who didn't lose too much of my faith in the defeat at West Ham. There was nothing between the sides there as Scott Parker's 4-4-1-1 formation with Tom Cairney, André-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Ademola Lookman in support of Aleksandar Mitrovic provided a nice balance in forward areas. That foursome can trouble a shaky Everton defence.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
