West Ham United vs Fulham Predictions

  • Fulham lost five of their first seven Premier League fixtures this season.
  • West Ham avoided defeat in four of their last five top flight matches.
  • West Ham kept just two clean sheets in their last 19 Premier League home fixtures.
  • West Ham averaged 2.1 goals per game in their last six contests.

Hammers difficult run

West Ham came out the other side of a tough gauntlet of fixtures a little bruised last week, following a 2-1 reverse to Liverpool at Anfield, though the Irons will feel a little hard done by after the hosts were awarded a soft spot kick.

The loss followed hot on the heels of impressive draws against Tottenham and Man City – stalemates that came shortly after the Irons’ even more commendable back-to-back victories over high flying Wolves and Leicester City.

After such a taxing run, the Hammers should find the going a little easier against relegation favourites Fulham on Saturday evening, and the Irons look favourites to wrangle three points out of a winnable looking game at the London Stadium.

Fulham finally find a win

Fulham will have a kick in their step this weekend after the Cottagers finally ended their search for a first Premier League win since their summer promotion.

The Cottagers played well en-route to securing three points against fellow strugglers West Brom at the Cottage, though a win against one of the division’s weakest outfits shouldn’t be taken as a sign that a turnaround in fortunes is imminent.

On the road, Fulham have taken just one point from the nine on offer so far, and we expect Scott Parker to face an awkward reunion when he visits his old club this weekend.

West Ham generously priced

West Ham took just eight points from the last 18 available, however, while their return in terms of numbers was meagre, the Irons would have taken huge amounts of confidence from a string of competitive performances against Arsenal, Wolves, Leicester, Spurs, Man City and Liverpool.

David Moyes will view the Hammers’ game against Fulham as a far more winnable fixture, and we think the hosts are worth backing to take advantage of the Cottagers’ away day malaise.

Parker has found it incredibly tough to plug the holes in Fulham’s creaking backline, and only WBA have conceded more goals than the Cottagers this term. However, at the sharp end of the pitch, Fulham’s record of scoring in each of their last three Premier League games points to an improvement in their attacking play.

Clean sheets at the London Stadium for West Ham are as anomalous as reasonably priced refreshments, and having kept their visitors out just twice in 19 top tier tussles since September 2019, our correct score prediction tips the Irons to concede a consolation effort this weekend.

Moyes’ talented team averaged 2.1 goals per 90 minutes across their last six fixtures however, and another West Ham brace looks possible against a Fulham team that shipped 1.83 goals per game on average during the same period. Combining the factors makes a 2-1 West Ham win a correct score worth backing this week.

West Ham injuries and team news

West Ham will be without influential duo Michail Antonio and Mark Noble this weekend, though David Moyes’s squad looks largely injury free apart from that.

Said Benrahma has yet to start in the league for the Irons following his move from Brentford, and the winger could find himself on the bench again.

Fulham injuries and team news

Kenny Tete, Josh Onomah and Terence Kongolo are still ruled out for Fulham while Aboubakar Kamara is suspended and won’t play.

Mario Lemina is nursing a knock, but should recover in time, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is fit and available again for selection in midfield.
