Meulensteen's side went behind in the first half when Leon Osman opened the scoring for the hosts.

Fulham improved after the break and Dimitar Berbatov equalised from the penalty spot after the visitors had missed a couple of excellent chances.

Everton responded late on and fired in three late goals to make the scoreline appear more comfortable than it actually was.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Meulensteen preferred to concentrate on the positives.

Meulensteen said: "The first half we just didn't get going but we had some words at half-time and I thought we were brilliant for 25 minutes after the break.

"We were positive, we pressed them. A couple of our lads had chances and we improved.

"I think Everton are bursting with confidence after recent results and they took their chances.

"We can do better and we will learn from this. We will certainly continue to work hard."

Fulham entertain Manchester City at Craven Cottage in their next fixture.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
