Fulham v West Ham – Match Preview and Predictions

Fulham look to climb off the bottom of the table this weekend as they host West Ham in a West London v East London encounter at Craven Cottage

Here is everything you need to know about Saturday’s clash.

Form

Fulham: LWLDL

It’s been a woeful season for the newly promoted side, who after 16 games of their return to the Premier League have picked up just nine points, shipping an incredible 40 goals making them the second-worst defence in the division’s history at this stage of the season (Barnsley in 1997/98 conceded 43 in their first 16 games).

They have a new man at the helm, and the much loved Claudio Ranieri has started to plug a few gaps at the back, and will be hoping to start moving Fulham up the table sharpish.

West Ham: DLWWW

A mixed season for the Hammers looks finally to be on the turn, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side winning the last three games on the run, scoring three goals in each.

While they have suffered the blow of an injury to Marko Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson is looking to be the real deal, while Javier Hernandez is back among the goals.

West Ham are currently in 11th in the table, and a win could take them level on points with seventh-placed Everton who face Man City in the early kickoff.
