Fulham Prediction

Fulham take on West Ham at Craven Cottage as the hosts look to pull themselves off the bottom of the Premier League with what would be a rare win for The Cottagers.

Fulham have won just twice all season which were home wins over Crystal Palace and Southampton, but recent losses to Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United (all away from home) have resulted in Claudio Ranieri’s side remaining bottom of the league.

A home record of 2-2-3 10/16 includes the possible start of a revival under Ranieri as Fulham have beaten Southampton and earned a point against Leicester City in consecutive games at Craven Cottage but they face a tough London derby this Saturday.

The major problem for Ranieri and Fulham is their lack of clean sheets on home turf this season as the hosts have conceded 2 goals or more in 5 of their 7 home matches so far this season. Unsurprisingly, Fulham possess the worst defensive record at home in the Premier League.

West Ham Prediction

West Ham sit in 11th place having lifted themselves away from the lower reaches of the division in recent weeks following three league wins on the trot for Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Victories against Newcastle United 3-0, Cardiff City 3-1 and a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace has been the perfect tonic for West Ham who are now just three points adrift of 7th placed Everton.

Away from home, West Ham have suffered just one defeat from their last five matches on the road which was a loss at Brighton, but a 3-1 win at Everton along with draws at Leicester City and Huddersfield Town has seen a revival for The Hammers.

The visitors have bounced back from early back-to-back defeats away at Liverpool and Arsenal and are now starting to gather momentum under Pellegrini, and they’ll fancy their chances of getting something out of this London clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

Fulham have shown a bit of promise since Ranieri’s arrival but West Ham have greater weapons up front and should get something out of this encounter.
