In a week that Carlo Ancelotti approached Richarlison as a potential future Ballon d’Or contender, two more goals for Dominic Calvert-Lewin ended in a sparkling attack display from his team Everton’s Waiting for Victory But just straight

A rousing late Fulham fight with Ruben Loftus-Cheek pulling one back after Ivan Cavaleiro’s penalty was further confirmation that the Italian side still had plenty of room for improvement after Ancelotti had lost three Premieres League demanded a reaction from its players, and they were obliged here, although Scott Parker’s struggling side found it easy to cope with a first-minute relapse, despite a relapse

“We have to do as we did in the second half of the year because we fell short at the beginning,” was the fair assessment of the Fulham manager

This time after Seamus Coleman paused again after his hamstring injury recurred, Ancelotti turned to Alex Iwobi to fill in Everton’s troubled right flank as a full-back It was an intriguing move designed to address the Richarlison threat and James Rodríguez in free roles behind Calvert-Lewin and maximized his fragile defense due to the presence of Michael Keane, Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey as back three
Everton conceded seven goals in their three losses to Southampton, Newcastle and Manchester United after a brilliant start to the season as they set the early pace at the top of the table, it was no coincidence that a string of losses also occurred with Richarlison’s absence after his red card against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby collapsed and the Brazilian was apparently eager to make up for the lost time

Almost 40 seconds had passed when Cavaleiro’s header was moved back to Harrison Reed and Richarlison took his chance and slid into the box before bringing Calvert-Lewin home over a few distractions

To their credit, Fulham, who picked former Everton players Antonee Robinson and Ademola Lookman on their starting line-up, didn’t drop their heads and was even within 14 minutes, but Bobby Decordova-Reid had abandoned his previous efforts in the penalty area, but Made no mistake after bonding well with Tom Cairney

But while Everton continued to look shaky at the back, the attack couldn’t be stopped.Calvert-Lewin was denied his second by the offside flag after touching Iwobi’s flank, despite not having to wait long for another opportunity to be brilliant Iwobi’s run-infield made room for Lucas Digne on the opposite flank for an inch-perfect cross that Calvert-Lewin expertly devoured to claim himself the Premier League top scorer at 10 this season

Perhaps Rodríguez felt left out of all the fun Thanks to his lush pass with the outside of his left shoe, Digne Abdoulaye Doucouré was able to poke out the head to score a third goal that left Fulham with a mountain to climb over an hour of the game to play

Lookman made fewer than 50 appearances for Everton before being sold to RB Leipzig last summer.His return to the Premier League on a full season loan has given Fulham fans hope of avoiding relegation this time – too when his Panenka penalty cost Parker’s side a valuable point in stoppage time of their last game against West Ham

In theory, he could have benefited from Iwobi’s inexperience in a defensive role, but the threat from Digne on the other hand was so great that the former England U21 striker was switched to the right in the second half and Parker threw Loftus-Cheek and Aleksandar Mitrovic had half an hour to put pressure on Everton’s defense and it was the Chelsea loanee who won a penalty after being overthrown by Godfrey

This time it was Cavaleiro instead of Lookman who was entrusted with the free kick, but the Portuguese striker slipped when he made contact and his efforts embarrassedly went over the bar

Fulham still made sure there would be a hectic final after Lookman delivered Loftus-Cheek within 60 seconds of the penalty, but much to Ancelotti’s relief, Everton said, “We have energy in the second half lost and struggled, “he admitted. Better teams won’t be quite as generous
