After a very narrow defeat against Liverpool, last weekend, West Ham United face London rivals, Fulham who are in search for their second win of the season after beating West Brom 2-0.

The Hammers are in fine form, losing only one of their last five games against the majority of last season's top seven. West Ham took the lead in Merseyside through Pablo Fornals. However, a dodgy penalty alongside a fine Diogo Jota finish was enough to rule it out.

Team News

West Ham United

Michail Antonio is set to miss out again through a continuous hamstring injury which could see Sebastian Haller start again.

Ones to Watch

West Ham United - Pablo Fornals

The creative midfielder has scored twice and assisted twice in the league so far and looks to score even more this weekend. 

Since arriving at the Club last summer, Fornals has added an attacking threat with great short and long range passes. The midfielder links up very well with Jarrod Bowen and alongside his passion for the Club, the Spanish playmaker certainly  knows how to put the ball in the back of net.

Fulham FC - Aleksandar Mitrovic

The big Serbian striker is Fulham's top goal scorer so far this season while also assisting the most as well. 

His presence in the box can add threat to any team and scare any defence. A lethal strike of the ball and a great head of the ball, if Fulham are going to score, it will surely be Mitrovic who does it.

West Ham 3-1 Fulham FC (22/02/2019)

Fulham went one-nil up thanks to a good finish from Ryan Babel inside the first 5 minutes of the derby.

Javier Hernandez equalised halfway through the first 45 minutes before Issa Diop put the hosts in front with a header past Sergio Rico.

Late in the injury time of the second half, Michail Antonio put the ball in the net to seal all three points for West Ham as they moved into the top half of the table.
