West Ham vs Fulham Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday, the Premier League is planning a London derby: West Ham United will face Fulham at its own London Stadium. West Ham United has been unbeaten in its own home against Fulham since 2001 and is also the top favorite for this event.
West Ham United:
For West Ham United the duel with Fulham comes at the ideal moment. The Hammers have had a lot of trouble in the last few weeks and can therefore use a three point. After a good period in December and early January, Manuel Pellegrini’s team has been waiting for a win since 12 January. More than a month ago, Arsenal was beaten 1-0 at the London Stadium and since then West Ham United lost three games and played twice right. Because of all the point loss, West Ham United has dropped a bit in the rankings and The Hammers have to content themselves with the bottom spot in the left row. On the one hand, Pellegrini will not be satisfied with this, on the other hand West Ham United is doing a lot better than last season.
For the last game of West Ham United we have to go back in time. It was completed almost two weeks ago. For West Ham United there was also a London derby on the program, this time Crystal Palace was the opponent. At Selhurst Park, The Hammers took the lead in the first half by a utilized penalty from Mark Noble, but West Ham United still had to score the equalizer in the second half. A few days earlier, West Ham United also took a point against Liverpool (1-1) and this weekend it is time again for a victory of The Hammers.
For Fulham the Championship comes closer with the week. The Cottagers are in nineteenth place and have eight points less than the first teams above the relegation streak. All in all, Fulham from Claudio Ranieri will have to grab points quickly in the Premier League, otherwise the adventure will be over after one season. The expectation prior to the season was of course already that Fulham would have a hard time this season, but the expectation was not that Fulham would get it so difficult in the Premier League. Certainly not because The Cottagers invested around 100 million euros during the summer transfer period. On paper Fulham with Ryan Sessegnon, Ryan Babel, André Schürrle and Aleksandar Mitrović have some excellent football players in the selection but it does not seem that there is an over-my-mentality at Fulham. A mentality that is necessary if you want to survive in the Premier League.
The shape of Fulham can be called dramatic. Six of the last seven games were lost and only a good result was achieved against Brighton & Hove Albion (4-2 wins). Thanks to the victory over Brighton, Fulham now has at least a good lead over Huddersfield Town, but the Cottagers buy little for that. Just like West Ham United, Fulham did not take action last weekend either. Two weeks ago, The Cottagers played their last game and Craven Cottage lost to Manchester United: 0-3. For Fulham it was already the seventeenth league low and there is also the problem at The Cottagers. For example, a Southampton lost only twelve matches.
