Everton vs Fulham
Everton will face off with Fulham in a Premier League clash on Sunday evening.
The Toffees will head into the weekend’s action sat 7th in the Premier League table.
And though their form has been slightly patchy of late, Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in a great position when it comes to fighting for a European place.
At present, Everton sit just three points behind 4th place Liverpool in the league.
However, Everton have two games in had on all of the sides above them, barring Manchester City.
And should they pick up wins in both ties, they could potentially move as high as 3rd in the table.
As for Fulham, they are looking increasingly more and more likely to be handed a swift return to the Championship.
Scott Parker’s side are down in 18th place having won just two league games all season. They are also eight points adrift of 17th spot.
Calvert-Lewin out for Everton vs Fulham
Carlo Ancelotti would hold his pre-Fulham press conference on Friday afternoon.
Both Everton and Fantasy Premier League fans were no doubt taking a keen interest in this presser as the Italian was expected to provide and update on Dominic Calvert Lewin.
The forward has been immense for Everton this term, notching 13 goals and two assists in 20 PL outings.
However, during the Merseysiders’ FA Cup win over Spurs in midweek, the hitman was forced off.
As a result, there was not doubt fear that Everton’s star man would miss out at the weekend.
And as confirmed by Ancelotti on Friday, DCL will indeed be out this weekend. The Everton boss is hopeful of having him back for their clash with Manchester City on Wednesday though:
Carlo Ancelotti has said Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss the Fulham game, hoping he will be back for Manchester City next Wednesday. Andre Gomes and James Rodriguez back for Sunday.
