Sports Mole previews the Premier League match between Fulham and Everton at Craven Cottage.

Fulham go into their clash with Everton at Craven Cottage on Sunday aware that they need three points to bolster their chances of avoiding relegation to the Championship.

Head coach Felix Magath has failed to have the desired impact since his arrival at the club, winning just four points from five games, and a fourth loss in charge of the West London outfit could see them cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

Defender Fernando Amorebieta is suspended, but Lewis Holtby, Darren Bent and Pajtim Kasami are in contention for a recall to the starting lineup.

Three wins in a row have helped Everton close the gap on Arsenal in the race for fourth position, and a further three points would keep the Toffees in touching distance of the Gunners before they meet at Goodison Park next week.

Phil Jagielka could return in the centre of defence after recovering from a hamstring injury.
