Everton v Fulham

Everton swept aside a woeful Fulham outfit to keep their excellent run going.

The demolition of the Londoners was a second successive 4-0 home win and means the Toffees have scored 12 goals in their last three Premier League games.

David Moyes' men cantered into a 3-0 lead at the break, lead by the lethal Nikica Jelavic.

The January arrival netted either side of a Marouane Fellaini header, with Tim Cahill adding the fourth after the break.

It means Everton have scored four goals in three successive league games for the first time since 1964.

Flip-flop clad Fulham were insipid in the absence through illness of their manager Martin Jol and Fellaini had already had an effort blocked when Pienaar was felled on the edge of the box. The supremely confident Jelavic stepped up and saw his curled effort blocked by the hand of Pavel Pogrebnyak.

Ref Phil Dowd had ensured the wall was in the box so could only point to the spot.

And it was no surprise when the lethal Croat converted from 12 yards.

Howard flicked Alexander Frei's shot over the bar and Jelavic struck the post before Everton doubled their lead.

In mopping up the striker's near miss Fulham conceded a corner and Fellaini rose uncontested six yards out with only 16 minutes on the clock.

Clint Dempsey appeared the Cottagers' main threat and after an early sighter he drew a superb save from Tim Howard.

The custodian had to readjust after his compatriot's effort hit Heitinga and stuck out a hand to divert it over the bar.

Soon it was 3-0 when the prolific Jelavic raced on to Pienaar's through-ball, rounded Schwarzer and then smashed it back through the Australian's legs from an acute angle.

Darron Gibson was replaced by Cahill at the break but it didn't hinder Everton's dominance.

The fourth goal, on the hour mark, was delightfully crafted by Pienaar.

The South African scooped the ball over the defence and new man Cahill raced through to poke it home.

Jelavic was denied his hat-trick when Schwarzer clawed away his free kick soon afterwards.

Fellaini was replaced by Ross Barkley for the last 15 minutes and Everton continued to pour forward, with Pienaar and then Osman - on his 300th appearance for the Club - going close to making it five.
