General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 S. Manolev gets yellow.
Everton very close now to what, on the balance of play, must be considered a much-deserved win.
90' +2 It's a mesmerising run from none other than Philippe Senderos down the Fulham right. The centre-looks a little lost, though, and delegates to Damien Duff who chips in a ball which Phil Jagielka clears with ease.
90' Great chance for Ross Barkley who sprints clear of the Fulham defence and opens his body to shoot. His effort finds Mark Schwarzer resolute as ever, and the danger is cleared.
87' Nervous moments for Everton as we enter the final moments. Rodallega, who has returned to play, makes a nuisance of himself behind Sylvain Distin, and Tim Howard has to step forward to gather the loose ball.
86' L. Osman gets yellow.
Another foul by Leon Osman sees him booked, further to his indiscretion earlier on. Mladen Petric takes a rare strike of the ball from the free-kick and plants it right into the centre of the wall.
85' One of the misses of the season has just occurred. A deep cross from the left meets Fellaini's right boot at the back post, but the Belgian kicks the ball into the ground and the bounce carries it just inches over Fulham's crossbar.
84' Hugo Rodallega limps hurriedly off the pitch after seemingly kicking the bottom of Steven Pienaar's left boot. Fulham have used all three of their substitutions, so Martin Jol will be hoping his Colombian forward will be re-entering the frey soon.
82' It's all getting a bit rough down there. Fulham look to impose themselves as we enter the final ten minutes. Kacaliknic and Duff tangle with Leon Osman, and all three end up on the deck. The free-kick goes Everton's way.
79' Another Everton corner comes Fellaini's way at the back stick. His tussle with Emanuelson sees the ball spring clear to Phil Jagielka who fires it straight at the head of Victor Anichebe. The Nigerian can't divert it goalwards, though, and the ball sails high over the bar.
77' H. Rodallega enters the game and replaces G. Karagounis.
Another foray into enemy territory sees Steven Pienaar fire a bouncing ball across the Fulham penalty area. Kevin Mirallas produces an outrageous piece of skill to flick the ball Schwarzer's way, but the Australian stands firm and dives to his left to keep it out.
Karagounis has run his race for the day, and is replaced by Hugo Rodallega.
