A last-gasp penalty from Mikel Arteta gave Everton a 2-1 victory over a second-string Fulham side and kept the Toffee's slim hopes of European football alive.
With Thursday's Europa League semi-final against Hamburg in mind, Fulham boss Roy Hodgson made nine changes for the game but came within seconds of ending a run of 16 successive defeats at Goodison Park.
Although Erik Nevland capitalised on a dreadful mistake from Leighton Baines to give Fulham a 36th-minute lead against the run of play, Victor Anichebe hauled Everton level five minutes after his arrival as a half-time sub before Arteta stroked home a face-saving winner deep into injury time.
