Everton welcome Fulham to Goodison Park on Saturday, a week after their stunning comeback against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Everton will hope to build on their comeback against Manchester United last weekend with a victory over Fulham at Goodison Park on Saturday.

David Moyes is likely to still be without PFA Team of the Year full-back Leighton Baines as he continues to struggle with injury, which paves the way for Sylvain Distin to possibly switch to the left.

After an impressive performance at Old Trafford Marouane Fellaini could be installed to sit just above the midfield to provide service to striker Nikica Jelavic.

Martin Jol has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Merseyside, which indicates that Danny Murphy and Clint Dempsey will slot into the midfield with Pavel Pogrebnyak up front.

Moussa Dembele is also likely to earn a starting spot in order to help find the net alongside his Russian teammate.

Current form:

Everton: WWDWLD
Fulham: LLWWDW

Possible lineups:

Everton: Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Heitinga, Distin; Neville, Osman, Gibson, Pienaar; Fellaini; Jelavic

Fulham: Schwarzer; Riise, Senderos, Hangeland, Hughes; Diarra, Murphy, Dempsey, Duff; Dembele, Pogrebnyak

Sports Mole says: 2-0
