Fulham V Hammers
FULHAM and West Ham get the festive battles underway with a Saturday lunchtime kickoff. The Cottagers gained their sixth win of the season, home to Middlesbrough and will want to keep it going.
This is the first of four successive London Premiership derbies for Fulham. They go to Charlton next Wednesday, and to champions Chelsea three days later, before entertaining Watford on New Years Day. Coleman will be hoping his side can wrap up a third consecutive victory in top tier capital clashes, following 2-1 home wins over Charlton and Arsenal.
Fulham last beat West Ham in a 0-2 victory at Upton Park on 3 November 2001.
WEST HAM UNITED are looking to build on last Sunday's sensational 1-0 victory over leaders Manchester United on the debut of manager Alan Curbishley.
Unfortunately the Hammers hold a 100% Premiership record on Fulham turf - three visits, three victories, conceding just one goal.
