Carlo Ancelotti's Everton side were back in action following the worldwide break and they visited Fulham at Craven Cottage, winning 3-2.

Everton who face Fulham on Sunday will be looking to end their run of three successive defeats in the Premier League.

England global Dominic Calvert-Lewin bundled Everton in front inside 42 seconds.

Bobby Decordova-Reid hauled Fulham level on the quarter-hour.

Digne looked lively in an advanced role and was involved in Everton's third, firing in a cross for Doucoure to head home on 35 minutes and open his Everton account after joining from Watford in the close season.

Up 3-1, Everton started to manage possession well and Richarlison had two chances to extend his side's advantage, but Alphonse Areola was able to deny him.

Fulham were much improved in the second half with substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek reducing the arrears seconds after Ivan Cavaleiro had deepened the hosts' penalty woes with a shanked spot-kick over the bar.

Their last outing before the global break saw them lose 3-1 at home to Manchester United despite taking a 19th-minute lead through Bernard.
