Fulham v Everton

Team News

Phil Jagielka is back fit and will be part of the squad travelling to Fulham.

Roberto Martinez confirmed the news at his Friday press conference, with the skipper having missed the last five games with a hamstring problem.

The manager said: "Phil Jagielka is fully fit and will be travelling with the squad.

"Everyone got through the Newcastle game, even though John Stones has eight stitches, but there's nothing new in terms of injuries."

Steven Pienaar will again be absent with a knee problem.

Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone [both knee], Bryan Oviedo [broken leg] and Lacina Traore [hamstring] will also miss out as they continue their recovery from long-term injuries.

Fulham could have January signing Kostas Mitroglou back available. The Greek striker has only featured twice for the Cottagers since completing his £12million move from Olympiakos in the last transfer window.

Winger Damien Duff will miss the rest of the season with a knee problem.

Form

Everton travel to West London having won their last four league games - against West Ham, Cardiff, Swansea and Newcastle. The last time the Blues achieved this number of successive top-flight victories was back in March 2008.

Sunday could bring up two appearance landmarks, with Ross Barkley set to make his 50th appearance for the Club in all competitions and Sylvain Distin in line for a 150th Premier League start in an Everton shirt.

The game represents the third time Everton have faced Fulham this season and each time Roberto Martinez will have pitted his wits against a different manager.

Felix MagathMagath has won just one of this first five games in charge of Fulham.

Having disposed of Martin Jol and then Rene Meulensteen, Fulham’s owner Shahid Khan turned to 60-year-old Felix Magath on Valentine’s Day.

In taking up the Craven Cottage reins, it became the first managerial job the former West Germany international had occupied outside of his homeland, where he had built up a very impressive resume.

In a 22-year career, Magath has coached Hamburg, Nurnberg, Eintracht Frankfurt, VfB Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Schalke 04 and most notably Bayern Munich, whom he guided to two Bundesliga titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06.

Magath has made a steady start to life in England, taking four points from his first five games in charge. Fulham achieved a 1-0 win over Newcastle United in their last home game but were thrashed 5-0 at Manchester City last Saturday.

Last Meeting

Everton 4-1 Fulham – December 2013

Everton eased past this weekend’s opponents in the corresponding meeting at Goodison Park in December.

Leon Osman scored on his 300th Premier League appearance but his deadlock-breaking strike was later cancelled out by a Dimitar Berbatov penalty.

Seamus Coleman restored the Blues’ advantage 17 minutes from full-time before Gareth Barry scored a killer third late on and Kevin Mirallas wrapped up the scoring.

Back in September, Everton visited Craven Cottage in the Capital One Cup third round where they were edged out 2-1 after taking the lead through Steven Naismith.
