Kevin Mirallas: Everton are waiting to see if the Belgium international will be fit to face Fulham

Fulham and Everton have both made encouraging starts to the Premier League season and head into Saturday's encounter on the back of thrilling draws.

The Cottagers were twice pegged back late on to draw 3-3 at Reading a week ago, while Everton recovered from a two-goal deficit to claim a point against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.

Draws have been a feature of the Toffees' recent form, with a six-match unbeaten run comprising four stalemates, including the last three games.

Everton's last away match came in West London when the returning Steven Pienaar was sent off in a 1-1 draw with lowly Queens Park Rangers.

However, David Moyes' side have already won impressively at Aston Villa and Swansea City this season and boast a fine recent record against Fulham after claiming six wins in the last eight league meetings.

Last-minute goals from Jack Rodwell and Louis Saha secured a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage for Everton last season, but those two, along with other scorer Royston Drenthe, have now left Goodison Park.

Fulham, meanwhile, have won three of their four home games to date without conceding a goal and were unfortunate to lose 2-1 at home to champions Manchester City when Edin Dzeko scored a late winner.

That was their only defeat in six games and Martin Jol's men can go above Everton in the table by beating their opponents on Saturday.

Fulham boss Martin Jol is hoping to have a full complement of players available, but is likely to check on the fitness of Dimitar Berbatov.

The summer signing from Manchester United had an injection at half-time against Reading after suffering a suspected broken rib.

Wales and former Everton midfielder Simon Davies is yet to make a first-team appearance this season due to a hip problem.

Everton manager David Moyes is optimistic forward Kevin Mirallas will be fit enough to face Fulham after his ankle injury in the Merseyside derby.

The Belgium international was forced off at half-time after an impressive 45 minutes but could retain his place in the starting line-up.

Midfielder Darron Gibson is still not ready to return from a thigh injury, but Steven Pienaar is available after suspension.
