Everton have never lost at home to Fulham in a league fixture (W20, D4). They have won the last 19 meetings at Goodison Park, the longest ever top-flight winning run against a particular club at the same stadium.
Fulham’s last point at Everton came in a goalless draw in September 1959. They have twice beaten Everton at Goodison Park, both times in the FA Cup fifth round – in 1948 and 1975.
Everton suffered their first defeat in seven matches at Sunderland last weekend. They are now five points adrift of a Champions League place.
Only the two Manchester clubs have suffered fewer defeats than Everton’s six this season. However, The Toffees have drawn 14 games, a joint-high with Norwich.
David Moyes’s side are vying for a fifth straight home win in the league. They have only lost one of their last 21 Premier League fixtures at Goodison Park – against Chelsea in December.
They have gained 22 points from losing positions (five wins and seven draws), a record bettered only by Manchester United.
Fulham have only earned one point from their last four matches. Their only goal in that time was an own goal by Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph in a 1-1 draw.
They are six points and two places worse off than at the same stage last season.
They have not won from behind in 2012-13, recovering just five points from losing positions – the worst record in the division.
Ten of Dimitar Berbatov’s 13 goals for the club have come before half time.
