Fulham vs West Ham United match preview
West Ham United’s miserable league campaign continues.
On Wednesday night, the Hammers were smashed 5-1 by Newcastle on a bleak night at the London Stadium.
The most depressing aspect was the fact that the ground was so empty by full time that there weren’t even enough people there to create your classic cacophony of boos.
Kurt Zouma did halve the deficit in first half injury time, but some calamitous defending gifted Newcastle, it could argued, all five their goals, the worst of which came 20 seconds after the interval.
Last Sunday, the Hammers did defeat Southampton 1-0, but remain 15th, above the bottom three by virtue of goal difference, even after that statistic took a battering in mid-week.
This forthcoming Thursday, the Irons will be in Belgium to take on Gent in the Europa Conference League.
David Moyes’ men are amongst the favourites to win that competition, but Moyes might not be in charge to see it through if their league form continues.
So, will West Ham claim their first away win in the Premier League since 28 August?
Most would’ve expected Fulham to be in the relegation dog fight themselves before a ball was kicked, but they’re all the way up in tenth.
The Cottagers though were beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth last weekend, despite taking an early lead through Andreas Pereira.
That’s now three loses on the spin for the Cottagers, who’ve actually won just two of their last eight.
West Ham are unbeaten in five meetings with Fulham, winning four of them, and the away side really need that trend to continue at Craven Cottage.
Fulham team news
Aleksandar Mitrović's eight-game ban was confirmed this week, with the Serbian striker not available again until 13 May against Southampton.
Manager Marco Silva will also serve part of his touchline ban here.
In better news, Willian can play, having been suspended last weekend, so will return to the XI.
Aside from that, the XI could be unchanged, with Carlos Vinícius continuing to lead the line.
Predicted XI: (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed, Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Vinícius
West Ham United team news
Łukasz Fabiański returning in goal last weekend, having been out with a brocket eye socket, but was calamitous against Newcastle, so Alphonse Areola could return.
Up front, Danny Ings is likely to lead the line, displacing Michail Antonio, while Gianluca Scamacca is injured again.
If David Moyes wants to make wholesale changes from Wednesday, Angelo Ogbonna, Vladimír Coufal, Aaron Cresswell, Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals could all come in.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Fabiański; Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Emerson; Rice, Souček, Paquetá; Bowen, Fornals, Ings.
