Not for the first time this season, Everton struggled to find any cohesion in their first-half performance.
The passing was laboured, the movement predictable, and the tempo regularly stuttered to a halt.
While Fulham predominately sat deep, the hosts will have been disappointed not to take a half-time lead, such was the clear-cut chances they missed.
Once again, however, the Toffees emerged a completely different animal after break.
There was suddenly pace, ambition and urgency in their play, leading to far more opportunities in the final third.
Eleven of their 14 shots came during the second half, as well as all three goals, which has been a recurring pattern to the season.
In total, 35 of Everton's 49 goals have now come in the second half of matches; that's over 71 percent—the highest percentage in the Premier League.
While this is clearly an impressive trait, and one that shows the belief emanating from the dressing room, it's also something that must be improved upon.
In the final seven games of the season—especially against Arsenal—Everton must find their rhythm far sooner and maintain it for longer.
