Sigurdsson’s double helps Everton beat Fulham 3-0 in EPL
The Iceland forward hit a 52nd-minute spot kick against the bar but four minutes later drilled home the opener from the edge of the box after Jonjoe Kenny’s deep cross was half-cleared into his path.
“He showed fantastic character and personality after he missed the penalty,” Everton manager Marco Silva said. “He works every day to achieve something and I thought the football was fair with him today.”
Fulham is four points behind Everton.
To add to Fulham’s woes, midfielder Joe Bryan is likely to be ruled out for weeks after straining a hamstring, while Timothy Fonsu-Mensah faces tests on a shoulder injury which forced him off.
