UK Premier League: Everton thrash Fulham 3-1, close in on Arsenal

London, Mar.31: Everton won 3-1 against bottom placed club Fulham on Sunday to close to within four points of the Premier League’s top four.

Everton took a 50th-minute lead at Craven Cottage when Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale unwittingly diverted a deflected volley from Naismith into the net for an own goal. Ashkan Dejagah scored a stunning equaliser for Fulham in the 71st minute. Substitutes Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith then scored for Everton to help their team establish an unassailable score-line, Sport24 reports.

This victory has taken Roberto Martinez’s side to within touching distance of fourth-placed Arsenal.

On the other hand, Fulham’s chances of avoiding relegation appear increasingly remote. (ANI)
