Everton Unchanged For Fulham Test

Marco Silva retains the same Everton starting XI which beat Arsenal six days ago for Saturday's Premier League visit to Fulham.

Michael Keane missed the victory over the Gunners after falling ill overnight and is fit to return to the matchday squad at Craven Cottage.

Captain Phil Jagielka's goal settled the contest against Arsenal and the 36-year-old keeps his place in the middle of Everton's back four where he will be partnered by Kurt Zouma.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin starts his seventh successive match up front, while this encounter in south-west London will represent the fifth game on the spin when manager Silva has paired Idrissa Gana Gueye and Andre Gomes in midfield.

Lucas Digne and Bernard are poised to continue their sparkling understanding down Everton's left. Likewise right-back Seamus Coleman and Bernard's fellow Brazilian Richarlison on the opposite flank.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, with 12 Premier League goals and four assists from 31 starts this term, occupies the position directly behind striker Calvert-Lewin.

Jordan Pickford plays his 72nd successive top-flight match for Everton in goal.

Ademola Lookman, Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott are all included among Everton's substitutes, while there are also places on the bench for Keane, Tom Davies, Leighton Baines and goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
