Fulham – West Ham: prediction for the match of the championship of England
In the match Fulham – West Ham on December 15, 2018, the home team will try to break their losing streak in the English championship. Fans will hear the starting whistle at the Craven Cottage stadium at 20:30 Moscow time.Fulham The Summer Residents continue to be at the bottom of the standings and are three points behind the 17th place. If Ranieri’s team does not begin to consistently score points, relegation cannot be avoided. Fulham suffered another defeat in the away match of the previous round against Manchester United. The guests completely failed at the beginning of the game and allowed United to take the lead in the 13th minute, the defenders of Fulham conceded Ashley Young, and the winger unexpectedly shot into the far top nine – 1:0. We did not have to wait long for the second conceded goal, this time Juan Mata became the author of the goal scored, the Spaniard struck with one touch in the 28th minute and doubled the advantage for his team. The Londoners completely lost the whole fight and gave the ball under the full control of the Reds players, and they took advantage of this opportunity with pleasure. The score was 3:0 on the scoreboard in the 42nd minute, this time Romelu Lukaku became the author, the defense of the guests missed the Belgian striker and allowed him to score a goal from the goalkeeper’s area. Fulham looked a bit better in the second half, with the Whites at least starting to hit David De Gea’s goal. One goal for the guests was played by Abubakar Kamara, the striker converted a penalty in the 67th minute. Despite one goal scored, the situation did not change dramatically, the hosts continued to control the course of the match and it was going to another goal scored. The final score was set in the 82nd minute, the goalkeeper of the “dacha residents” did not expect a blow from Marcus Rashford and did not cover the near corner, and the striker took advantage of this – 4:1. The Fulham-West Ham matchup will be an opportunity to end a bitter streak and get back in the fight for survival. West Ham Farther away from the fight for survival is West Ham, the Hammers got into good shape and climbed to 11th place, five points away from sixth place. The winning streak of the capital team could not be interrupted by Crystal Palace either. The Eagles had visited West Ham in the previous round and hoped to take away at least some points from there. The guests began to put their plan into action from the starting minutes of the confrontation, James MacArthur was in a striking position and pushed the ball under the goalkeeper of the Hammers – 0:1 in the sixth minute. The hosts conceded, but did not abandon the defensive game and go on the attack with all their might. The players calmly finished the first half, leaving attempts to recoup in the second half of the game. At half-time, Manuel Pellegrini seemed to make it clear to his players how to play in the second half, because West Ham began to act in a completely different way. It was possible to neutralize the advantage of the guests already in the third minute after the resumption of the game, Robert Snodgrass took the ball on the rebound and shot right into the near corner, the goalkeeper did not reach, and the score became 1:1. The second goal of the “Hammers” was also not long in coming, the goalkeeper of the Palace parried Felipe Anderson’s free-kick, but could not do anything with finishing off Chicharito, the Mexican was the first on the ball and made the score 2:1 in the 62nd minute. Anderson apparently felt sorry for the unrealized free kick, because three minutes later he decided on a long-range shot, the Brazilian struck with a sweeping shot and hit the top nine – 3:1. The third ball relaxed the hosts a bit, because of which they conceded for the second time and returned the intrigue to the game, the defenders lost Jeffery Schlupp, and the striker confidently converted his moment in the 76th minute – 3:2. The intrigue returned, but West Ham began to act more carefully in the defensive zone. The result is 3:2, a victory that allows the Hammers to count on the fight for European competition, but this will happen in case of a positive result in the Fulham-West Ham match.
