History of the West Ham United v Fulham fixture

Fulham face a trip to West Ham United at Boleyn Ground on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2009, with West Ham Utd. running out comfortable 3 - 1 winners in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides

West Ham United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Hammers have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Fulham's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Cottagers have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.

West Ham Utd. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 4 points from their 6 games thus far. Fulham are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 6 points from 6 matches.
