Second half underway

No changes from either manager at the half.

Tim Cahill and the other BBC experts

are saying that the reason Everton look so devastating out wide is that they are using wingers as wing backs – that’d be Digne on the left and Iwobi on the right. They can afford to do that against an inferior opponent against Fulham. How would you counter it? Attack down the flanks yourself, I guess. Push them back, don’t allow them to have it all their own way.

Half time: Fulham 1 Everton 3

The ref brings to an end one of the most enjoyable halves of football we’ve had this season. 

41 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 3 

James chips it in to Richarlison, who nearly bundles it in through sheer force of will. 

Everton keep the move alive… Digne again allowed to cross. Andersen misses it! Lucky for him, Richarlison also misses it too. 

39 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 3

Everton just enjoying a few minutes of consolidation as they play it around at the back.

GOAL! Fulham 1 Everton 3 (Doucouré 35)

“It’s like a training session. Christmas has cone early for Everton,” says Martin Keown.

Fulham again so generous, allowing them all the time and space they could wish for. Digne is happily wandering down that left wing without any impediment, he produces a good cross and Doucouré, unmarked, has the freedom of the penalty area as he nods it home.

30 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 2

Right away, another defensive blunder from Fulham, this time Andersen, allows Everton a corner. Cleared.

GOAL! Fulham 1 Everton 2 (Calvert-Lewin 29)

A brilliant goal! Superb football from Everton. They have so much quality out wide. Iwobi with a run from the right, cuts inside and plays it to Rodriguez, who sends it onwards to the left wing. Digne plays it in with a crisp, accurate one-timer. And there is Calvert-Lewin to tap it in with a composed, precise finish. Lovely play.

25 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 1    

This is an excellent, entertaining match. Fulham having the better of it in midfield, not least because James Rodriguez is completely off his game. Decent move from Fulham ends with Aina driving the ball not far wide from the right.

22 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 1   

The sun is in the eyes of the Fulham goalie Areola, who misjudges a looping deflection and sees it bounce on top of the cross bar! 

20 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 1  

Richarlison is on the rampage. He robs an opponent in midfield and charges forward, so much strength and class in his control. Hits the target and that’s a very fine save.

17 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 1 

Calvert-Lewin has put the ball in the net. Fulham have allowed him to romp through, but he is offside. You could say it was a perfectly played offside trap, or you could ask why he has found a space big enough to drive a bus through between the two centre halves.

16 mins: Fulham 1 Everton 1

De Cordova-Reid danced around Jerry Mina there like Mina was a statue. The Colombian defender’s form is a big concern for Carlo I imagine.

GOAL! Fulham 1 Everton 1 (De Cordova-Reid 15)

This is more like it. An excellent move from Fulham, clever, quick and neat one-two between Cairney and De Cordova-Reid, who receives the ball back and dances into the area, slotting the ball away with a fine low finish.

9 mins: Fulham 0 Everton 1  

Fulham give it away again at the back, the coaching staff either cannot see or will not accept that they do not have the players for this strategy. They just about manage to get enough bodies around Richarlison to halt his powerful run at goal but it feels like another accident waiting to happen.

4 mins: Fulham 0 Everton 1 

A foul on Richarlison, who scored for Brazil in the week against Uruguay. Everton having almost all of the ball so far.

2 mins: Fulham 0 Everton 1

Scott Parker in familiar stricken pose on the touchline. “It’s your worse nightmare,” says Martin Keown on the BBC comms. 

Adarabioyo got a touch in the box for the goal that inadvertently teed up Dominic CL. When you’re out of luck, you’re out of luck.

GOAL! Fulham 0 Everton 1 (Calvert-Lewin 1)

The worst possible start for Fulham. They try to play it out from the back, they give it away. Richarlison surges forward and plays it across. Calvert-Lewin gets the touch and it’s in! 

Kick off! 

Fulham are in white, Everton in yellow and blue.

Good morning! 

Happy Sunday. A minor curio this morning, with live Premier League football on the BBC with a noon kick off. Craven Cottage, perhaps the prettiest football ground in the capital, looking a picture: it is a lovely mild bright day here in London, and perhaps that can inspire Fulham to a result against Everton.

Here are the teams.

Everton first.

Fulham team news: Mitrovic and Anguissa on the bench (presumably post intls…) Starts for Cavaleiro and Lemina.

XI: Areola; Aina, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Robinson; Reed, Lemina, Cairney; Cavaleiro, De Cordova-Reid, Lookman

Fulham vs Everton kicks off a busy afternoon of football for us here on Telegraph Sport. Later, there’s the intriguing prospect of Liverpool welcoming Leicester, it’d be great if the Foxes could get a result at Anfield, make the league race as exciting as possible.

Leeds United have always been a fun watch this season win or lose, and they have a stern but by no means impossible test against Arsenal later.  Leeds United vs Arsenal, Premier League: What time is kick-off today, what TV channel is it on and that is our prediction?
