Berbatov predicts result of Everton clash v Fulham
Former Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov predicts Everton will win all three points at Craven Cottage on Sunday when they take on Scott Parker’s side.
Carlo Ancelotti has not seen his side win in any of their last four Premier League matches, including three defeats in their last three outings.
However, ex-Bulgaria international Berbatov believes that the Toffees will bounce back to winning ways by beating his former club Fulham in the capital this weekend.
Writing on the Mirror website, Berbatov said: “Everton have slipped up recently but this is still a really tough one for Scott Parker’s men. Everton will win this but not by much.”
Fulham may be one of the favourites to get relegated this season but the Toffees cannot afford to underestimate the London club.
In their last two matches, the Cottagers have shown a lot of improvement by beating West Brom and almost earning a result away at West Ham when ex-Everton man Ademola Lookman missed a penalty late on.

Lookman, 23, baffled football fans with his penalty technique at West Ham but the attacker has still been one of Fulham’s best players this season and he’s someone who the Blues need to try and keep close tabs on this weekend.
He’s not the only one either as players like Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic can cause all sorts of problems if Everton’s defence isn’t switched on properly.
But there is a lot more quality in this Everton side than there is in Fulham’s and that will hopefully shine through on Sunday and lead to the three points heading back to Merseyside.
