Fulham vs Everton | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 14
Another Premier League matchday is coming, and what a game it will be. Many teams are already showing an exceptional level, with a few upsets along the way as some overcome rivals unexpectedly.
Fulham vs Everton will put two midtable teams up against each other as they struggle to stay within reach of the top of the table. Yet both clubs are off to a different start to their season, and a win could make all the difference.
There is still a lot of EPL ahead, but we have to defend our relegation status
Fulham Want Better Results This Season, Not Another Relegation
Fulham joined the Premiership for the first time in the 2018-19 season. And, as should be expected of any team newly promoted to a competition of such a level, they did not get the desired results. Unsurprisingly, they finished the season at #19 and returned to the second tier of the English league.
However, the club did not give up and, after much struggle, returned to the elite of UK soccer for the 2020-21 season. But it was not their time either, and they were relegated once again after finishing in the #18 position.
This season they want to turn this around, so they must fight from the beginning if they want to stay in the Premier League.
Their first games were two draws, 2-2 against Liverpool, and 0-0 against Wolves. This was a decent start for the club, who were at least picking up some valuable points. Subsequently, until their seventh matchday, they had achieved three important victories that sustained them for the moment in 7th place in the standings.
The cottagers know they have a chance to do some damage in Fulham vs Everton, and they could potentially come out on top if they hold the defense line and control the attack.
Everton Need the Win After a Rough Start to the Season
Last season, Everton came within a whisker of relegation. They finished in 16th place, and it seems that they have not been able to recover from this. They suffered two consecutive defeats at the beginning of this season, the first at the hands of Chelsea, who won by the narrowest of margins. The second was against Aston Villa, who would prevent the Blues from scoring a single goal.
After this, it was clear that they were doing their utmost to reverse those two bad games. However, four draws followed, which were not even enough to make their position on the table less catastrophic. Now, as of their seventh matchday, they only have one victory in their favor.
