Fulham vs West HamEnglish Premier League, KO: 14:00 Dec 10, 2023, Craven Cottage
Fulham welcome West Ham to Craven Cottage for a Premier League fixture on Sunday with both teams looking to maintain their recent good form. A closely fought encounter could be on the cards here but the Hammers have been particularly impressive lately and given their record in this fixture, they should have the upper hand here.
Fulham were in rampant mood last time out in the Premier League as they ran out 5-0 winners over Nottingham Forest. Raul Jimenez and Alex Iwobi netted a brace each while Tom Cairney completed the rout four minutes from time.
That was a vital win for Fulham which eases them closer to the top half as they are now one point behind 10th placed Chelsea. However, Marco Silva’s men have still been a bit erratic in recent weeks with two wins and three defeats in their last five matches.
Fulham will be counting on home support on Sunday having won three of their last four matches at Craven Cottage. However, they have kept just one clean sheet in their last five Premier League matches in front of their fans.
West Ham appear to have fully clicked into gear and are looking sharp in recent weeks. They are just three points off the European places and travel to Craven Cottage unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions, claiming five wins in that run.
The Hammers are coming off a 2-1 win at West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. They fought back from an early setback with second half efforts from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse earning them the win.
That was the third straight away win across all competitions for West Ham, who have also impressed on their recent travels. However, David Moyes’ men have not been convincing at the back, keeping just one clean sheet in their last seven away matches.
