Fulham 2-3 Everton: Toffees back to winning ways in thriller at the Craven Cottage

Everton returned back to winning ways with a narrow 3-2 win away to Fulham in a thrilling encounter at the Craven Cottage on Sunday. 

Carlo Ancelotti's men had lost three in a row in the top-flight and were winless in the last four going into the match, but they picked maximum point against the promoted side who put up a spirited fight. 

The Toffees got off to a perfect start when Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored in the first minute after getting onto a Richarlison ball. 

Bobby Reid however pulled the hosts level in the 15th minute following a good team move. 

Everton took the lead once again with Calvert-Lewin grabbing a second of the match, and Abdoulaye Doucoure made it 3-1 after 35 minutes. 

Fulham were the better side in the second period and should have cut the deficit in the 68th minute but  Ivan Cavaleiro missed a penalty. 

Ruben Loftus-Cheek however made it 3-2 in the 70th minute, but could not find the equalizer despite pushing and creating a number of chances. 

The win saw the Toffees move to sixth in the standings on 16 points, while Fulham remained 17th on four points.
