Everton lost ground on the top four as Fulham boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park
Maja’s impact was the key difference on Baltic night on Merseyside, as Scott Parker’s side gave themselves a real fighting chance of avoiding the drop.
Neither team could create anything in a poor opening half hour at both ends.
And it was Blues skipper Seamus Coleman who came closest to breaking the deadlock before the break as the Irishman’s strike cannoned back off the post.
But despite a slow burner in the first half, the Cottagers exploded this game into life just after the break as Maja slid home Ola Aina’s cross.
And that strike looked to tip the balance for Fulham, as Everton struggled to gain a foothold, with Maja grabbing his second with 20 to play.
Harrison Reed’s drive beat Robin Olsen and back off the upright and Maja stayed alive to tuck home the rebound.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side did create a few half chances late on, through the lacklustre Gylfi Sigurdsson and Michael Keane, but in the end it was a big night for Fulham.
