West Ham vs Fulham (By: Umicuma)
Change on the Fulham bench did brought some changes, including winning games against Huddersfield and Brighton, but team is still sitting deep in the danger zone, eight points from the safe position. Since there is 12 games t go for the season, Fulham should try to make at least mini serie, where team would get important points to lift them up. Squad is particularly having bad play on side where they did not record a single victory from the begin of the competition.
City derby against West Ham could be some chance for the Fulham, counting that their today rival have no winning match in the league for the previous five round. Despite sitting at the safe position at the table so far, it was expected more from the team, lead by Manual Pellegrini and filled up with experienced Premier league players. Weak performance in the period and losing games like it was against AFC Wimbledon in Cup ( 4:2 ), is showing that something is not set correctly in the home team play. They will again miss some of the important players like Winston Reid, Fabian Balbuena, Carlos Sanchez and Andriy Yarmolenko. Nasri and Lanzini should be recovered, but the second one has been out from the begin of the season, and it is question if he would be able to return in the right shape in short period of time.
As Claudio Ranieri said, Fulham did have better chances in the first duel of two teams, but West Ham managed to score from two counter attacks and resolve the game at Craven Cottage. However, visiting side is near full power, and they could stand back this time, looking to engage Mitrovic in attack with the long balls. Eventual defeat in this one, could put Fulham in very tough situation, when it comes to relegation fight for the season+
