Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicts an easy 3-1 win for the Hammers when thy face Fulham tomorrow evening at the London Stadium.
Merson wrote on the Sky Sports website “Fulham are in the must-win saloon but they are letting in goals for fun, and I don’t see anything except a victory for West Ham. It’s hard for Fulham to go somewhere and keep clean sheets and they also aren’t the highest scoring team, so I don’t see them getting anything here.
I can’t see Fulham surviving; defensively, they are not going to keep enough clean sheets. They are behind the eight-ball and the more they have to chase games, the more vulnerable they are going to be. I don’t give them a chance.
Claret and Hugh says:
Fulham have yet to win a single away game all season and have conceded a record 58 goals so far this season. Enter West Ham which means we will probably hand them their first away win. As the old saying goes there is no easy wins and we must not be complacent for a team that seems designed for relegation. We must learn our lessons from previous lesser teams this season and come out of the blocks running with what Pellegrini calls big team mentality. Ranieri is no fool and will try to get his team to stop us from playing football in the hope of frustrating us and nicking a goal on the break. Let’s hope Manuel Pellegrini can out smart Ranieri and Marko Arnautovic can get back to his scoring ways. COYI
