            West Ham vs Fulham: Preview & Prediction

            East London hosts West Ham and Fulham this Sunday in the Premier League. The Hammers are in the throes of the fight for a return to European football next season, whereas Fulham are aiming for a spot in the top half of the table.

            Date: 14/04/2024

            Kick off time: 14:00

            Location: London Stadium

            The race for European football is on, with the top 12 all in contention for the sixth place spot, with West Ham in hot pursuit of Manchester United. Fulham are also only a good three point haul from being within this conversation.

            West Ham currently sit sixth in the Premier League after 32 games. The Hammers have 13 wins, nine draws and ten losses, leaving them on 48 points, just one point behind Manchester United.

            The Hammers have been consistent in front of goal this season, scoring 52 goals in 32 games, an average of 1.63 goals a game. West Ham have struggled defensively, conceding 56 goals and keeping five clean sheets.

            Fulham sit just below West Ham in 13th in the Premier League. In 32 games, The Cottagers have 11 wins, six draws and 15 losses which leaves them on 39 points, four points from the top half of the table.

            The Cottagers, however, have also been amongst the goals. Fulham have scored 47 goals which is an average of 1.47 goals a game. This consistency has also been shown at the other end of the pitch, conceding 51 goals and keeping eight clean sheets.

            West Ham and Fulham have met 108 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1898. The Hammers have the better record in the fixture with 51 wins in comparison to Fulham’s 33 wins, the other 24 games ending in a share of the points.

            In the last five games in the fixture, there have been three wins for West Ham, a draw and most recently a big 5 - 0 win for Fulham. Despite the big scoreline in the last game, this fixture has seen three of the last five games with just one goal.

            Recent Form

            In their last five games in all competitions, West Ham have two wins, two draws and two loss.

            In the second leg of the Europa League Round of 16, West Ham took on Freiburg following the 1 - 0 loss in the first leg. The Hammers bounced back with a brace from Mohammed Kudus and goals from Lucas Paqueta, Jarrod Bowen and Aaron Cresswell in a 5 - 0 win for West Ham.

            Back in the Premier League, West Ham hosted Aston Villa in a controversial affair. Michail Antonio gave The Hammers the 1 - 0 lead at halftime but Nicolo Zaniolo equalised for Villa with ten minutes to go. Tomas Soucek thought he had won it for West Ham but after an eight minute VAR check, the goal was ruled out and forced West Ham to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

            Alexander Isak’s first penalty in the sixth minute gave Newcastle the early lead, but goals from Antonio and Kudus gave West Ham the lead at the halftime whistle. Just three minutes into the second half, Bowen grabbed a goal to give West Ham the 3 - 1 lead, but another penalty from Isak and a brace from Harvey Barnes gave Newcastle the 4 - 3 win over The Hammers despite Anthony Gordon’s late red card.

            The visit from rivals Tottenham saw Spurs take an early lead. Brennan Johnson opened the scoring in the fifth minute but Kurt Zouma equalised before the 20 minute mark. Neither side could find the back of the net again and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

            The last Premier League outing for West Ham was against Wolves. A penalty from Pablo Sarabia gave Wolves the lead at halftime, but a penalty from Lucas Paqueta and an 84th minute goal from James Ward-Prowse gave West Ham the 2 - 1 win.

            West Ham suffered a damaging 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League quarter-finals first-leg as Jonas Hofmann and Victor Boniface scored late goals for Xabi Alonso's side.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Fulham have one win, one draw and three losses.

            The trip to the Molineux saw Fulham on the scoresheet late. Rayan Ait-Nouri opened the scoring early in the second half for Wolves and an own goal from Tom Cairney doubled the lead. Alex Iwobi did score in the 98th minute, but it wasn’t enough as Fulham slumped to a 2 - 1 loss.

            Fulham bounced back next time out against Tottenham in a big win. For the first time since 2008, Fulham beat Tottenham at Craven Cottage as a brace from Rodrigo Muniz and a goal from Sasa Lukic gave The Cottagers the 3 - 0 win.

            The visit to Bramall Lane saw Ben Brereton Diaz open the scoring for Sheffield United but Joao Palhinha equalised within four minutes. However, another goal from Diaz and Oli McBurnie gave The Blades the 3 - 1 lead with 20 minutes to go. A late goal from Bobby De Cordova-Reid and an even later goal from Muniz rescued a 3 - 3 draw for Fulham.

            Fulham found themselves 3 - 0 down at halftime against Nottingham Forest, with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Chris Wood and Morgan Gibss-White all on the scoresheet. Tosin Adarabioyo did get Fulham in the game just minutes into the second half, but The Cottagers were unable to find the back of the net and suffered a 3 - 1 loss.

            The most recent outing for Fulham was against Newcastle. Bruno Guimaraes scored the only goal of the game in the 81st minute to give Newcastle the 1 - 0 win.
