Everton to keep streak going

Following Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Bolton, Roy Hodgson and company are welcomed to Goodison with David Moyes looking for his one-hundredth victory stewarding Everton. The Toffees are in a peculiar situation at present as the normal strong record at home has evaporated this year as they are winless in five matches.

After returning from suspension, Tim Cahill may miss the match due an injury and along with Leon Osman, will face a pre-match fitness test. Nuno Valente is a definite "no-show" with minor knee problems. Fulham are relatively healthy with only Toni Kallio and Seol Ki-Hyeon out. Marouane Fellaini is anxious to continue his heroic efforts and per the club web-site, he said how pleased he was with life in the Merseyside and giving his best for the fans. That will be needed tomorrow as through the course of the season this is one of "those" matches which you need maximal points on if you are to move into the top of the table.
