West Ham vs Fulham: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
In one of London’s less intense derbies, West Ham take on Fulham in the Premier League late kick-off on Saturday.
West Ham vs Fulham: Predictions
David Moyes can finally start to look positively at West Ham’s fixture list having faced four of the traditional ‘Big Six’, as well as Wolves and Leicester in his opening seven games, but he faces a Fulham side in confident mood following their first win of the Premier League season last time out.
The Cottagers secured a vital 2-0 victory over fellow promoted club West Brom last week in an early six-pointer, with goals from Bobby Reid and Ola Aina sinking Slaven Bilic’s men. Scott Parker now faces his former club, for whom he clinched the Hammer of the Year award in three consecutive seasons between 2009 and 2011.
Just four points separates these sides in the league, but the table certainly does not paint the full picture for West Ham, who have secured results over Man City, Tottenham, Wolves and Leicester, as well as pushing Liverpool and Arsenal until the dying embers, with both clubs netting 85th-minute winners.

West Ham vs Fulham: Match Stats
The Hammers boast a strong record against the west London club, winning 59 per cent of their Premier League games (13 out of 22), which is their highest win ratio against any opponent they’ve faced at least 10 times in the competition. David Moyes too has enjoyed plenty of success against the Cottagers in his Premier League career, winning 12 of his 13 home meetings against them.
The Scot will be determined to ensure that good form remains in tact, but this may not be as straight forward a task as he would hope. While Fulham haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 15 Premier League meetings with West Ham, Moyes’ side have seen over 2.5 goals scored in all but two matches across all competitions this season (out of 10 contests). So, West Ham may be slight favourites, but Fulham should offer plenty of menace.
