Fulham coach Marco Silva is aware of how strong Everton have been away from Goodison Park this season.

Only Liverpool and Manchester City have won more matches on their travels in 2023/24, but Silva has faith in his own side at Craven Cottage on Tuesday night.

“All the respect to Everton, away from home they have been one of the strongest sides so far this season,” he said. “They have been achieving a really, really good number of points away from home.

“The position they are in is not important for us, we look for ourselves, focus on ourselves. There are three points there to fight for and we are going to do our maximum to get the three points, knowing that they are a dangerous side.

“In many, many ways, away from home they have been achieving points. We know what they are capable of doing, it’s going to demand from ourselves a very good night because we need to win the game.

“It's always tricky. As I said before, when you play against Sean Dyche teams it’s always tricky, they're always a really difficult team to beat and to play against.

“Everyone knows how the game can become really physical as well, and how they are strong in all the challenges, in all the duels, and after from that moment they are capable to build always and to create chances to score.

“They are a solid side in many moments of the game. Of course, I know them really well, they know ourselves really well as well. It’s going to be a really competitive Premier League game, and we are positive that we can get a good result again.”

Fulham won three times at Everton in 2023, and when asked if that can give his side an advantage heading into Tuesday, Silva replied: “Not advantage, but gives us the confidence that we can repeat again. Simple as that.

“The opposite side, of course, is that Everton are thinking in the opposite way, that they want to change things.

“If you have been achieving good results, it’s not an advantage because the game is going to start new, [but] it gives us the confidence that we can repeat the good result again and we can perform well to get it done.”
