History of the West Ham United v Fulham fixture

West Ham Utd. prepare to entertain Fulham at Boleyn Ground on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hammers are clearly on top, winning 52.50% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Boleyn Ground 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.
