I really enjoy the mustache feature above, so here you have one of my favorites.
But otherwise, let’s talk about what it all means. Scott E. Parker once again has Mario Lemina available, so he returns to midfield with the departure of Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, while in attack, Ivan Cavaleiro replaces Aleksandr Mitrovic.
As for Everton, Richarlison returns for Bernard, who scored last time, Gylfi Sigurdsson is replaced by Alex Iwobi, while Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina replace Mason Holgate and Seamus Coleman.
Here’s some hope for Fulham. Unless Everton play 3-5-2, Godfrey will be on the right back, where Southampton gave him an outright pass a couple of games ago; What better way for Lookman to redeem himself than to get caught up in it?
Everton, meanwhile, will benefit from Iwobi’s bearing, even if their decision-making needs attention.
And then I guess we all think of Ademola Lookman. It will have been a long international break for him.
Fulham (a good, honest, old-fashioned 4-2-3-1): Areola; Aina, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Robinson; Reed, Lemina; Lookman, Cairney, Cavaleiro; Reid. Subs: Rodak, Odoi, Ream, Bryan, Anguissa, Loftus-Cheek, Mitrovic.
Everton (a 4-4-expletive-2 continental): Pickford; Godfrey, Keane, Mina, Digne; Iwobi, Doucouré, Allan, James; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison. Subs: Olsen, Holgate, Davies, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Tosun.

It’s only November, but this is an absolutely colossal game. Fulham are in fourth place in the table and I’m sure they will be happy to stay there in mid-May, but the omens are not positive. The fact that they haven’t looked good since they were promoted is only part; Just as worrying for them is that below them are Burnley and Sheffield United, better teams with better players and better managers, who can legitimately be expected to improve, and above them are better Brighton, Leeds, Newcastle and West Ham. teams with better players and better coaches. Which is to say that we are seeing a change in the Premier League this season: most of the teams in the lower half can give all the teams in the upper half a proper ranking.
So Fulham need to get some points and fast and theoretically a home game with Everton, who have lost three games in a row, is a decent candidate. Except that those three losses have coincided with the suspension of Richarlison who, despite all the expertise of James Rodríguez, the goals of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the dark arts of Allan is still the best and most important player on the team. He’s back today and chances are high that he will make a decisive difference.
Oh, and it’s live on BBC1!
