It was an outing to forget for the Everton, on Saturday, as they were roundly beaten 3-1 by Fulham, at Goodison Park.

Alex Iwobi was in action for the entirety of the game but couldn’t do much to influence the result against a surprisingly rampant Fulham side keen on ending the rut after going on a five-game losing streak.

 

Everton on the other hand were keen to bounce back from their defeat to Manchester United, but things didn’t go to plan.

Fulham took the lead just 22 minutes in through Harrison Reed, but Dwight McNeil came up with an equaliser for the hosts, to end the first half all square again.

Fulham were in no mood to relax after the restart, and restored their lead again as Harry Wilson scored just six minutes after the restart.

Everton pushed hard for an equalizer but it was Fulham that had the edge as Daniel James who had been a menace all through scored the third to put the game to bed.

This wouldn’t have been the outing Iwobi hoped for, but he had a fairly decent game himself, recording 2 key passes, 1 accurate cross into the box, two interceptions, and four ground duels won.
