2010-04-25 18:40

Liverpool - Mikel Arteta converted an injury-time penalty to give Everton a come from behind 2-1 win over Fulham at Goodison Park on Sunday to keep their slim hopes of Europa League football next season alive.

Erik Nevland gave Fulham a 36th-minute lead against the run of play before Victor Anichebe hauled Everton level five minutes after his arrival as a half-time substitute.

Everton grabbed the winner from the spot in the fourth minute of injury time after Chris Baird fouled Tim Cahill who was celebrating his 200th appearance for the Merseysiders.

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson made nine changes to his team with one eye on Thursday's Europe League semi-final second leg clash against Hamburg.
