Fulham after their recent improved performances in the English premier league with two draws from their last three had more to be happy about as they were going in the right direction.
Scott Parker over the period has showered praise on his team with encouraging words to excel and make it out of the relegation zone and better pick more points with their consistency in attacking on the field of play.
With their last game ending in a draw against West Ham United who have been on the rampage, Fulham has more than enough preparation to do against Everton who are in the title race this season.
Everton after their famous draw with Manchester United at the Old Trafford showed what they are made of and their resilience during the game.
The match week 24 fixture between Fulham and Everton at the Goodison Park was another power pack with both teams trying to take control of the midfield but Fulham were the hungrier on the two teams with their relegation battle to fight.
Everton in their current form were adjudged to will walk over Fulham and pick yet another easy three points but Scott Parker came into the fixture with a game plan that neutralized the home team and worked to perfection.
With Fulham creating the most chances in the first half, it was still a mystery how they hadn’t recorded anything on the score sheet but continued to press and catch Everton on the lose and make waves around the Everton goal area.
The second half was full of thrills as Fulham came alive and started to possess play and become clinical in front of goal. It took Fulham 3’ into the second to realize a lead as Josh Maja connected to a sweet pass from Ola Aina to the visitors a lead.
It was game on for Everton as they have to open up and try to find an equalizer but Fulham who desperately needed all maximum points maintained their composure and found the back of the net the second time in the 65’.
Josh Maja has recorded his first brace for Fulham and won all three points for Scott Parker in a win that would prove vital to their survival in the English premier league.
Fulham now sit behind Newcastle United with 7 points difference and 5 points clear of West Bromwich Albion who have played 24 games with Fulham on 23.
