West Ham United and Fulham face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at London Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021, the two teams played to a 0-0 draw.
West Ham comes into this game sitting in 15th place in the standings having picked up seven points. Last Saturday, West Ham played against the Wolves, and the offense scored two goals on the way to the victory. The goals were scored in the 29th and 54th minute. West Ham only had 39 percent of the possession, but they had five shots on goal. West Ham also played a Europa League game on Thursday, and they were also able to secure a 1-0 win in that game. Nayef Aguerd is still dealing with an ankle injury, and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Maxwel Cornet also had to leave early in the last game, and he won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Fulham who sits in eighth place n the standings having picked 11 points. Fulham’s last game came against Newcastle, and it was a very ugly game. The defense gave up four goals and that led to a three-goal defeat. Fulham were out shot 10-1 in that game, and they need more possession of the ball. Nathaniel Chalobah picked up a red card in the 8th minute, and he’s suspended for this game. Carlos Vinicius is expected to move into the starting lineup for this game, and will need to be good in this game.
Fulham is going to really struggle to defend in this game, and that is going to lead to West Ham finding success. I expect West Ham to score at least two goals and Fulham is going to have no answer. This is going to be an easy winner for West Ham.
