West Ham vs Fulham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.
The Cottagers are one of the worst teams in the competition, and they so far have recorded a total of just one win this league season – against West Brom, another one of the worst squads in the tournament.
Going on, Scott Parker’s men are also a newly promoted squad, and their struggles in 2020-21 was kind of expected – considering the quality of the teams in the English top flight.
Meanwhile, the Hammers have tried their best lately to give good performances, and they have been successful in that regards – except for their few defeats against some of the best teams in the PL – eg: Liverpool, Everton and Arsenal.
Moreover, David Moyes’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this stadium.
As such, expect West Ham to deliver a huge performance this Saturday at the Olympic Stadium.
