A stirring late Fulham fightback that saw Ruben Loftus-Cheek pull one back after Ivan Cavaleiro’s penalty miss was further confirmation that the Italian’s side still have plenty of room for improvement.

Fulham still ensured there would be a frantic finale after Lookman supplied Loftus-Cheek within 60 seconds of the penalty miss, but – much to Ancelotti’s relief – Everton held firm.

In a week that Carlo Ancelotti had talked up Richarlison as a potential future contender for the Ballon d’Or, two more goals for Dominic Calvert-Lewin in a sparkling attacking display from his team ended Everton’s wait for victory.

To their credit, however, Fulham – who selected the former Everton players Antonee Robinson and Ademola Lookman in their starting lineup – did not let their heads drop and were level within 14 minutes.

Parker threw on Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Aleksandr Mitrovic with half an hour to play in an attempt to put pressure on Everton’s defence and it was the Chelsea loanee who won a penalty after being brought down by Godfrey.

But only just.

His return to the Premier League on a season-long loan has given Fulham supporters some hope of avoiding relegation this time around – even if his fluffed Panenka penalty in injury time of their last match, against West Ham, cost Parker’s side a precious point.
