Joseph Yobo is a fitness worry for Everton and if he fails to recover from a calf injury the hosts are set to name an unchanged team.

Duncan Ferguson has two games to serve of his seven-match suspension.

Everton (from): Westerveld, Hibbert, Weir, Stubbs, Nuno Valente, Osman, Cahill, Neville, Arteta, McFadden, Beattie, Turner, Davies, Kilbane, Naysmith, Carsley, Anichebe.

Everton manager David Moyes:
"There are goals in the midfield. Leon Osman gets goals; Mikel Arteta should score more; Simon Davies can definitely, and Tim Cahill has always got a goal in him.
"Around the rest of the side, people like Kevin Kilbane are more than capable of getting their share. We have players in midfield who will score goals - and it is starting to show.


BIG-MATCH FACTS

EVERTON will be expecting nothing less than maximum points when Fulham visit. The Merseysiders are vying for a fifth successive home win in the Premiership, while Fulham have the weakest away record - indeed they remain the only club in England without an away League win this season. Coupled to that - all nine previous meetings between these clubs have been won by the side playing at home.

The Toffees are searching for their 175th all-time Premier League victory in the week David Moyes celebrates four years in charge. He's overseen them narrowly escape relegation twice, in addition to a seventh place and a fourth place finish. The Goodison Park club were sprinting up the table after an indifferent first half to the season, with the aid of a seven-match unbeaten run of six wins and a draw from New Year's Eve. But that resurgence has been checked somewhat with defeat at Newcastle and a draw at West Ham. Scoring goals has been the Toffees' problem with. On average, only one netted every two hours of Premiership football played.

The Toffees have not dropped a point in 12 home games against Fulham. Last season, Duncan Ferguson came off the bench to win the match.

COME ON EVERTON!

top game to watch!
entertaining all the way.

everton all over fulham for most part of the 2nd aswell.
after fulham's penalty they kept getting stroner and were close to a 2nd goal.
wright made a good save with his knees in 90th minute.
deserved win though for the blues.

new breeze for the uefa-cup hopes as man city and west ham lost.

Taped this match yesterday as I had to work , Has to be the best match Ive seen them play in some time. Arteta, and Velente were worth their weight in Gold. Good way to start to pick up momentum for Villa and then on to Anfield, where we will dominunate the under classmen. :thumbsup:
