Team News

  • Kieran Richardson missed the FA Cup tie with Manchester United at the weekend with a calf injury but is likely to be fit to fact West Ham.
  • Simon Davies is back in training and could be in contention at the weekend, but this game will probably be too soon for him.
  • Duff and Dejagah will play on the wings, though Kacaniklic is another option.
  • Andy Carroll stands an outside chance of making his long awaited return from a knee injury, though he will probably only appear from the bench, if at all.
  • Daniel Potts won't feature after sustaining a nasty head injury at Arsenal, before being taken to hospital, though that was, it seems, only precautionary.
  • Collins and McCartney are both out while Maiga remains at the AFCON.

Prediction

  • West meets East in this all London affair, with both teams looking to stop the rot and put an end to their poor form. Fulham have just 1 win in their last 7 and only 2 win in their last 15 in the Premier League, while West Ham have only won 1 of their last 8.
  • Their respective runs have seen them both drop into the bottom half of the table and they are each in danger of becoming embroiled in a relegation battle, with Fulham now just 6 points above the drop zone.
  • West Ham are going to have to improve on the road; they have managed just 6 goals in 11 away games this season and have lost 5 of their last 6. Even though the Hammers have a good record at Craven Cottage, where they have won 3 of their last 4 visits, their away form is just so bad that it is difficult to predict anything other than a home win.
Prediction:

  • After West Ham's last away performance at Sunderland, there is a lot of value going to a Fulham victory. Fulham with the likes of Ruiz and Berbatov is a much more of a threat at home. 2-1 Fulham

  • Fulham win for me.
