As West Ham United prepare to host Fulham at the London Stadium on the 14th of April, 2024, both teams are eying crucial points for different reasons in the Premier League standings. The Hammers, eager to secure their place in the top seven, face a Fulham side positioned in 13th, yet only nine points adrift.

This encounter promises not just a battle for points but also for pride, especially considering the history and proximity of the two London clubs.

Current Form

West Ham's Current Form

West Ham's recent form in all competitions has been a mixed bag, with two wins from their last eight matches.

Their Europa League journey faced a setback with a 2-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen, intensifying the focus on their Premier League campaign.

However, a recent 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers has injected some optimism, pulling them within one point of sixth place, although their performance consistency remains a concern.

Fulham's Current Form

On the other side, Fulham's away form leaves much to be desired, with only two wins and eleven points from 16 matches on the road this season.

Despite this, they're coming off a close 1-0 home loss to Newcastle United, showing signs of competitive spirit that could surprise West Ham, reminiscent of their emphatic 5-0 win in the reverse fixture.
