Just eight sides remain in the hunt for EFL Cup success this term, and two of the dark horses for success will clash in the quarterfinal on Tuesday. Everton have been in excellent recent form, and they will be looking to reach the last four when they host Fulham at Goodison Park.
EFL Cup Preview
Sean Dyche deserves massive credit for the job that he has done at Goodison Park this term, and their excellent league form could make them a standout selection for domestic cup success this term. Everton come into this cup tie after winning each of their last three in the Premier League.
The Toffees have been very professional to this stage of the competition, eliminating two Premier League sides in the past two rounds. That includes a standout success on the road against Aston Villa in the third round. Everton were excellent in the previous round, as they landed a comfortable 3-0 home success against Burnley. Ashley Young and James Tarkowski were among the scorers in that home success. Dreams of Wembley could be alive for the Toffees.
Fulham’s excellent run of form was brought to a swift end in their previous match, as they fell to a defeat on the road against Newcastle. However, the Cottagers were in excellent form before that setback after winning their last two by an aggregate 10-0 scoreline,
Marco Silva’s side have been strong in the competition to this point. They eliminated one of the pre-tournament favourites in the opening round after beating Tottenham on penalties. In each of the previous two rounds, the Cottagers have knocked out Championship sides, which includes a 3-1 win on the road against Ipswich in the last round.
Everton vs Fulham Head to Head
Fulham have a very strong record in this fixture after winning three of their last four against the Cottagers. That includes a 1-0 away success earlier this term, which was their second straight win at Goodison Park. The Cottagers landed a 2-1 home win in the last EFL Cup clash between the sides in 2013.
Everton vs Fulham Prediction
Fulham’s record in this fixture could be the key trend to consider on Tuesday. We will be siding with that advantage, and we could see them bouncing back from their recent defeat at Newcastle by landing a spot in the final four in the EFL Cup.
