Fulham vs West Ham United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri oversaw his biggest defeat since coming to Fulham after a 4-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford. A disastrous first-half witnessed Fulham falling to goals from Ashley Young, Juan Mata, and Romelu Lukaku. Even though Aboubakar Kamara was able to score from the penalty spot in the second half, Marcus Rashford restored the three-goal advantage of United in the 82nd minute. Zambo Anguissa’s sending off effectively ended the contest just after Kamara’s goal. West Ham picked up a 3-2 success against Crystal Palace to make it three consecutive wins under Manuel Pellegrini. James McArthur broke the deadlock after six minutes, but goals from Robert Snodgrass, Javier Hernandez, and Felipe Anderson was able to get the home team back on track. They were unable to hold on despite a scare provided by Jeffrey Schlupp’s second-half goal.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Hammers have come up with a strong set of displays of late, but this London derby has the potential to take form out of the window. Fulham do have a leaky defence that was exposed by United. West Ham have the potential to do the same due to the form of players like Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez. I would pick a victory for West Ham.

This match has the potential to produce a large number of goals with Fulham’s leaky defence meeting West Ham’s offensive strength. The hammers have been able to come up with an impressive tally of 14 goals in the last six matches. A great option would be to back over 2.5 goals in this fixture.

Fulham Preview

Fulham have been going through a tough time even after the arrival of Claudio Ranieri. Just when it seemed that the club appeared to have made substantial improvement on the defensive front following the close victories and draws, the game against United comes as a major blow to Fulham’s fragile confidence. The team, though, can still look forward to scoring goals at the other end with the likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic quite impressive.

Fulham Team News

Floyd Ayite (groin) and Kevin McDonald (hamstring) are unavailable due to injuries, while Andre Zambo Anguissa is suspended for the game.

West Ham United Preview

West Ham have been able to pull together a string of impressive results. It appears that Manuel Pellegrini is starting to get a better understanding of his squad, as his substitutions have started making a major impact. Despite a still struggling with a large number of injuries, West Ham have been able to play some attractive football and still get some results. The crucial problem for the Hammers may be a defence that has conceded far too many goals than what is to be expected from a team that has European ambitions.

West Ham United Team News

Lucas Perez Martinez (foot), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles tendon), Carlos Sanchez (ligament injury), Jack Wilshere (ankle), Manuel Lanzini (cruciate ligament), Marko Arnautovic (hamstring), Ryan Fredericks (shin), and Winston Reid (ligament) are missing from action for the Hammers.
