Fulham vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
The Hammers have recently been one of the best teams in the whole competition. They are on a seven-match winning run, barring their defeat against Liverpool, and impressively they are placed fifth in the table at the moment.
The fourth-placed Liverpool have just two points more than them, and this weekend the Reds are taking on toppers Manchester City, who have been in stupendous form.
By the looks of things, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be dropping points, and this is an opportunity for David Moyes’s men to climb into the top-four of the table.
In addition, the sixth-placed Everton are locking horns with the in-form Manchester United this Saturday, and the former too will be expected to drop points.
Likely, a win at the Craven Cottage will not only induct the Hammers into the top-four, but will give them a good lead too.
On top of that, they are pitted against the struggling Cottagers, who are placed 18th in the table at the moment. In fact, they are a recently promoted club, and are also one of the worst in the whole of PL as of now.
They have also won just twice all through this league campaign, and one of these victories had come against the 19th placed West Brom.
Finally, the Hammers also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
Taking into account these observations, expect West Ham to emerge victorious this Saturday.
