This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Everton and Fulham at 12:45 on Saturday, 1st November 2008 in the Premier League.
Everton prepare to entertain Fulham at Goodison Park at lunchtime on Saturday, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having taken all the points from 16 of the 24 contests.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Goodison Park was less than a year ago, in December 2007, with Everton running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides
Everton need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Toffees have scored 7, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.
Fulham's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Cottagers have conceded 6 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.
Everton see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 12 points from their 10 games played so far, Fulham find themselves struggling down in 14th position in the league having picked up 11 points from their 9 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Everton at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Toffees will at least gain a draw. Score draw
|Everton||Drawn last 2 games at home.|
Failed to win in previous 6 home matches.
|Fulham||Not won in previous 5 away matches.|
4 games since last defeat.
