Dec. 22, 2006 – Alan Curbishley’s new reign began in spectacular fashion last weekend, with an impressive 1-0 win over leaders Manchester United. In fact, West Ham’s last three wins in the league have all been by a 1-0 scoreline, although those three goals account for their only strikes during their last eight Premiership matches.
The Hammers hold the worst away record in the Premiership this season, having collected just one point (at Watford) from a possible 27 and scoring just two goals in the process. For odds visit WWW.EASYODDS.COM?=PR.
However, West Ham have a perfect record at Fulham in the Premiership having recorded three wins out of three. A pair of 1-0 wins followed by a 2-1 success in this fixture last season makes West Ham the only side who Fulham have failed to take a single Premiership home point against.
Those looking for value in the correct score market should bear in mind that the two sides, along with Blackburn, have kept just three clean sheets in the league all season, the lowest in the division. West Ham have also lost 2-0 on five occasions this term, more than any other team, while Fulham’s most frequent result has been four 2-1 victories.
At half-time, Fulham have been 0-0 on a league-high nine occasions, while the Hammers have been most often trailing by 1-0 (eight games).
In the first and last goalscoring markets, only Brian McBride has registered more than one opening goal in the Premiership this season for either team. While currently injured Jimmy Bullard and Bobby Zamora have struck two last goals so far.
As manager of Charlton, Alan Curbishley has never won a Premiership game at Fulham and in fact his side only scored once in five visits. However, before Curbs’ arrival in east London, West Ham had never beaten Man Utd at home in the Premiership either and Saturday lunchtime could see Curbs finally break his duck by the river.
