Scott Parker Comments
“The dust has settled a little bit after what was an emotional night at Watford.
As much as we are disappointed with the season, we move on. We have five games left, and we have half an eye on next season. This is an important time for this football club as we look to build for next season, where we want to have a massive impact.
Regarding myself, I’ve said many times that I’m not focusing on me. I just want to improve things. The most important thing for me is sending out a team where people can see organisation and belief, and hopefully that gets us some results.
I’m in constant discussion with the owner about how we can improve things. I’m looking at the long-term future of the club, whether I’m the manager or not.”
- Fulham have failed to win any of their last 10 meetings with Everton in the Premier League (D2 L8); their longest winless run against the Toffees in league competition.
- After losing their first seven away Premier League games against Fulham, Everton have won three of their last six (D2 L1).
- Everton have lost only one of their last 19 Premier League away matches against newly promoted teams (W7 D11), losing versus Burnley in October 2016 (1-2).
- Already relegated Fulham have conceded at least twice in each of their last 13 Premier League games, losing 12 of them (W1). The only teams to have conceded 2+ goals in more consecutive top-flight matches are Manchester United (16 games from April-October 1930) and Newcastle United (14 games from May-October 1977).
- Everton are looking to win four consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2016.
- Everton have won three of their six away league games so far in 2019 (L3) – they only won four of their 18 on the road in the whole of 2018 (W4 D4 L10).
Everton won their last league visit to London, beating West Ham 2-0. They’ve not won consecutive league games in the capital since May 2015.
- Fulham have had fewer different goalscorers (exc. own-goals) than any other side in the Premier League this season (9).
- Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored four goals in four Premier League matches against Fulham, including netting twice in this season’s reverse fixture in September.
- Before joining Fulham, Ryan Babel had won all 11 Premier League games in which he scored. He’s since netted in three games for the Cottagers, losing all of them.
Everton, after turning the wrong corner after their dramatic loss at Anfield, managed to get themselves back on track when they drew 0-0 with their Merseyside rivals. They come into this game on the back of three straight wins with no goals against. Last week a four or five-nil victory against would not have looked out of place.
Fulham 0 – 2 Everton
