Fulham vs West Ham LIVE! Latest team news, lineups, prediction, TV and Premier League match stream today
The capital rivals could hardly be in differening veins of form ahead of this evening’s showdown in west London.
Fulham sit 18th in the table, eight points adrift of safety following a home defeat to Leicester in midweek. As for West Ham, David Moyes’ Hammers bounced back from last weekend’s home loss to Liverpool by securing an impressive 3-1 win as Aston Villa on Wednesday.
Jesse Lingard starred on his Hammers debut with two goals, and the east Londoners will be looking to put further pressure on Liverpool in the race for Champions League qualification – a scenario most West Ham fans would have scarcely believed at the start of the season.
With kick-off at 5:30pm GMT, follow all the latest news, action and analysis with Jack Rosser at Craven Cottage on our LIVE match blog.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is among those dropping to the bench, with Mario Lemina, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Ivan Cavaleiro included in the starting line-up.
New signing Josh Maja is on the bench for the first time and could be in line for a debut senior appearance for the club he played for as a schoolboy.
Hammers boss David Moyes makes one change from the 3-1 win at Aston Villa, with Jarrod Bowen named instead of Ryan Fredericks.

Prediction: 2-0 West Ham win
The Hammers will be confident of another away win here, especially with Lingard impressing on his debut. Fulham will have to be on form to get anything against a well-drilled Moyes side, so an away win looks likely.
Early team news
Scott Parker will be without injured duo Tom Ciarney (knee) and Terence Kongolo (thigh).
As for the Hammers, Arthur Masuaku (knee) remains out while Darren Randolph is a doubt – and Jesse Lingard is likely to start again after his dream debut.
