MATCH REPORT: FULHAM 2-3 EVERTON

Everton returned to winning ways with a thrilling 3-2 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

England centre forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin got the Blues off to a flyer after just 42 seconds when he bundled home Richarlison’s cross.

Scott Parker’s men responded on 15 minutes as Bobby Decordova-Reid finished off a neat move.

In a compelling end-to-end game, Calvert-Lewin put the Toffees back in front just before the half hour mark, tucking away Lucas Digne’s driven cross for his 10th of the season.

Digne got another assist six minutes later as Abdoulaye Doucoure scored his first Everton goal with a close-range header from his compatriot’s cross.

Fulham pulled one back on 70 minutes through Ruben Loftus-Cheek via a Yerry Mina deflection, just two minutes after Ivan Cavaliero slipped and blazed a penalty over the bar.

But it was not enough for the Cottagers who record their seventh defeat of the season, leaving them hovering just above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be relieved to have ended their losing streak and sit in sixth, four points off Tottenham in top spot.
