I was at Old Trafford last weekend to see Fulham lose to Manchester United. It was far too easy to score goals against the Cottagers and I was a bit perplexed by their attacking approach too. They have got a big striker up front in Aleksandar Mitrovic but you knew they were going to struggle when they had three free-kicks around 40 yards from the United goal, and played the ball backwards each time. With Mitrovic to aim for, you have got to chuck the ball into the box in situations like that - and you never know what might happen. Cottagers boss Claudio Ranieri changed things around at half-time with his side 3-0 down and there was a glimmer of hope for them when they pulled a goal back - but generally they were outclassed. Ranieri has fared rather better at Craven Cottage since taking charge, however, taking four points from two games so far. West Ham will arrive on the back of a run of three straight wins and they are a team that can suffer a hiccup from time to time - and it would not surprise me if Fulham find a way of winning this one.
West Ham have won their last 3 games and have scored 3 goals in each of those 3 games. Fulham are bottom and have conceded 40 goals in 16 games. They’ve scored 16 goals and I think they’ll score once at home to West Ham but I think the away side will continue their winning run and will score
