Defender Seamus Coleman and midfielder Gareth Barry were the unlikely goalscorers as Everton clawed back victory over Fulham
Fulham live updates
Rene Meulensteen believes Dimitar Berbatov demonstrated his commitment to the Fulham cause with a sparkling performance in Sunday's 2-0 win over Aston Villa.
Berbatov was the lynchpin as Fulham ended a run of six straight league defeats, teeing up Steve Sidwell for a well-taken opener before coolly dispatching a penalty he had helped win.

I think the word is focus, anyone who has a good focus will know what the job is in hand, and you focus on the performance.
He makes a difference. I thought he was excellent [in the 2-1 loss to Tottenham] on Wednesday as well, and today again you saw what he was capable of doing.
I just had a good chat with him, he's not a stranger to me, we know what games we have coming up all the way to January, and he's fully committed to Fulham and the games we've got ahead of us.
I'm just focusing on the games up until January.
I couldn't be more delighted with his performance, it shows that he cares.
Rene Meulensteen hopes to transfer Sir Alex Ferguson's thirst for a challenge into his fight to keep Fulham in the Barclays Premier League.
– Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen
I've been fortunate to sit alongside one of the most successful managers in Sir Alex Ferguson.
He taught me a lot but the one thing that stood by me, in life, in football: you're faced constantly by challenges.
You want challenges, and sometimes they are in adversity.
The most important thing is to accept the challenge, embrace the challenge, and enjoy taking that challenge on.
I will definitely draw into the experiences that I've had of Sir Alex Ferguson.
I've spent a long time working with top, top players: hard work and the good work that will go in will eventually manifest itself on the pitch.
