Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker Scott Parker saluted an immense performance from his team that ended a 12-game Premier League run without a win.

He witnessed a Fulham outfit that converted performance into three points in a result that had been on the cards. It also notched up a first ever victory at Goodison Park.

“For large parts, the performance you see tonight and the way we played has happened over the course of the last 15 games,” he said. “The difference is we managed to score a couple of goals and win the game.

“That’s always given me belief the fact we’ve been in games.

We’ve won the game and overall, I thought we were fantastic from start to finish.

Coming to a very good Everton side who have done well for large parts.

We had to defend a little bit for the last 15 and show another side to us.

I’m very pleased.”

Josh Maja was handed his first start in the Premier League and he repaid that faith with a debut brace.

“Josh Maja was fantastic tonight in terms of scoring two goals,” he continued.

“The first move was brilliant, a nice bit of movement in the box and he’s there to tap one in.

The second goal was a real striker’s instinct goal – off the post and he’s there.

“It’s been well documented that we’ve missed some big chances. When I analyse our performances, we’re creating chances.

“The numbers are there on production, the fine margins are we haven’t been clinical - tonight we were. It’s a big boost for the team and nothing short of what they deserve.”

The result sets up a huge confidence boost with a run of Burnley, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace on the horizon.

“We’ve got some big games coming up. The remaining games are massive. I don’t concentrate on what teams are doing around us.

"Our focus is to come in every day and improve. We worry about ourselves, we’ve drawn a lot of games but we’re very competitive, we’re giving ourselves a chance staying in these games.”
