West Ham are in need of a huge response as they travel to face Fulham this weekend.
David Moyes’ side were hammered 5-1 by Newcastle on Wednesday night, with the Hammers boss admitting after the match his job was “in danger” after a result that left the club out of the relegation zone only on goal difference.
West Ham have not won away from home in the Premier League since August, with 11 winless matches since then, and they must somehow find a way to reverse that trend at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.
Fulham have had a largely superb season but are on a stumbling run themselves, having lost all of their last four matches. It has seen them drop down to 10th, having been in the mix for the European spots.

Fulham vs West Ham team news
Fulham will once again be without Aleksandar Mitrovic, who will miss the club’s next seven matches after his ban for shoving a referee was extended. Marco Silva serves the first game of his two-match touchline ban.
Carlos Vinicius is set to continue up front, while Willian is available for Fulham after serving his suspension. Neeskens Kebano and Layvin Kurzawa remain out.
Thilo Kehrer and Nayef Aguerd were among those to make individual errors in West Ham’s defeat to Newcastle, but both are likely to start again at Craven Cottage.
Danny Ings could return up front with Michail Antonio dropping back to the bench, while Flynn Downes is an option to come into midfield should Moyes make changes.
Fulham vs West Ham prediction
Neither side go into the match with any real confidence, but with Fulham safely in mid-table, it’s West Ham who has the far greater need for a positive result.
However, the woeful away record remains a real concern for the Hammers, and it is difficult to see them leaving Craven Cottage with all three points after that display against Newcastle.
