Commentary

That concludes our coverage of the Premier League fixture between Fulham and West Ham! We hope you enjoyed it! 
Fulham will look to get a win next Sunday when they travel to face Everton. West Ham will want to get back to winning ways again on Tuesday, when they host Manchester United in the FA Cup, before a Premier League fixture against Sheffield United next Monday.
There was no splitting the two sides over 90 minutes, as Fulham and West Ham will each have to settle for a point after their 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage. The goalkeepers had a relatively comfortable day in the rain, with the best chance falling to Coufal, only for the full-back to strike the crossbar with his header and put it over. It was an open contest that certainly could have been won by either team - but the lack of clinical finishing for both sides condemned them to a goalless draw; though the clean sheet will be a welcome sight for both Moyes and Parker. The former coach will certainly not be happy with the referee though, who chose to send Soucek off for violent conduct following a clash with Mitrovic. In any case, the draw keeps West Ham in fifth, while Fulham stay 18th.
90' + 10' FULL-TIME: FULHAM 0-0 WEST HAM.
90' + 9' Deep into stoppage time but up a man, can Fulham find an almost impossibly late winner?
T. Souček
Red Card
90' + 7' RED CARD! After a LENGTHY VAR review, the referee walks back onto the pitch and brandishes the red card for Soucek! It didn’t seem to be a particularly dangerous challenge, but the match official has decided that it’s violent conduct. It may not hurt West Ham today, but that expulsion will certainly change their gameplan in the matches to come.
90' + 5' There’s a late bit of drama as Soucek sent Mitrovic to the ground after catching him with an elbow just before the free-kick was sent in. The referee is looking at the monitor to determine whether the West Ham man should walk - though it seems as though even Mitrovic realises that there was no intent in the incident.
A. Yarmolenko
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Yellow Card Andrii Yarmolenko
J. Andersen
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Andersen’s late tackle on Coufal earns the centre-back a yellow card - and gives West Ham one last chance from a free-kick.
90' + 2' The fourth official confirms that four minutes will be added to the 90 for stoppages. 
Ł. Fabiański
Yellow Card
90' Fabianski is shown a late yellow card for time-wasting during a goal-kick. 
89' LOFTUS-CHEEK GOES WIDE! A cross from the right is met by the midfielder on the edge of the penalty area, but his volleyed effort towards goal misses the target entirely.
88' Creswell’s free-kick on the left is attacked well by Coufal, but again - the header is sent harmlessly over.
86' Loftus-Cheek rises highest at the far post to try and put a header towards goal after Tete’s cross was deflected in the penalty area - but he can only turn and send his chance disappointingly off-target. 
84' Anguissa turns and fires from distance, but Fabianski catches the shot with no problems.
A. Zambo Anguissa
B. De Cordova-Reid
83' Anguissa is on for De Cordova-Reid with seven minutes remaining. Can he make the difference?
81' Noble looks to play Lingard into the penalty area, but good defending from Tete puts him in a position to hook the danger away.
A. Mitrović
M. Lemina
79' Mitrovic will look to occupy defenders and create panic in his 10-minute run-out, as he replaces Lemina.
J. Maja
A. Robinson
79' Robinson is withdrawn with just over 10 minutes remaining, as Maja is sent on.
78' CAVALEIRO SWEEPS IT OVER! Brilliant dribbling from De Cordova-Reid gets him free on the right before his centring pass finds the feet of his team-mate perfectly. Cavaleiro has the time to set himself but takes the strike at the first time of asking - blazing it over.
76' LOOKMAN PUTS IT WIDE! The forward hits the strike cleanly in the rain and wraps it around the wall, but puts it the other side of the post.
A. Ogbonna
Yellow Card
75' Ogbonna is shown the first yellow card of the match, for dragging Cavaleiro down to the turf just outside the penalty area - giving Fulham a real chance to test Fabianski.
R. Fredericks
M. Antonio
74' West Ham make a change with just over 15 minutes remaining, as Fredericks replaces Antonio.
72' West Ham have only won more Premier League games against Southampton (18) and Spurs (15) than they have against Fulham (14), despite facing them just 23 times. Their 61% win ratio against the Cottagers is their best against a team they’ve faced 5+ times in the Premier League.
70' JUST OVER! Fulham go close to scoring, but Adarabioyo’s header from Lookman’s corner is looped just above Fabianski’s crossbar.
68' Neither side are able to keep hold of possession as the midfield has become a crowded mess of bodies. West Ham are finally able to poke it free and play it back to Fabianski, but a rushed bit of play down the right sees it launched all the way back down to Areola.
66' The search for the opener goes on, as both sides are coming closer and closer to breaking the deadlock. Moyes’ substitutions have definitely helped the Hammers, who seem to have wrestled back momentum.
64' OFF THE CROSSBAR! Rice’s cross from the left finds the head of an unmarked Coufal - who smashes his effort off the woodwork, popping it up and behind for a goal-kick!
62' West Ham’s  Lingard has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances (three goals), although 192 days separated those two games – he has never previously scored in three consecutive appearances in the competition (134 PL games).
60' Tete hoists a cross into the penalty area from the right, but it fails to fool Fabianski, who rises highest to claim it. Fulham have certainly been the more positive of the two sides recently, but their presence in front of goal has been lacking.
58' Cresswell delivers a West Ham free-kick to the far post for Soucek, but it’s put a little too far for the midfielder to attack it as he’s barely able to keep it in play.
M. Noble
J. Bowen
56' Bowen is the second to be replaced, as Noble enters the match in his place.
A. Yarmolenko
S. Benrahma
56' Benrahma is one of two West Ham players to make way just before the hour, with Yarmolenko his replacement.
54' Moyes looks to have had enough with the current set-up, as a number of substitutes ready themselves on the touchline. Fulham have been in the ascendancy since the restart, which the visiting coach is certainly wary of.
52' CLOSE! The best chance of the game falls to Fulham, as Lookman puts Loftus-Cheek through on goal with a fantastic slipped pass through the defence, but the midfielder is unable to hit the target from close range.
50' Fulham look to capitalise from their first set-piece of the second half, but Cavaleiro’s strike towards goal deflects off the wall before going behind for a corner.
48' Coufal takes a West Ham free-kick from the right and delivers it to the far post, but Fulham clear it away at the first time of asking, before winning a set-piece of their own just outside the Hammers penalty area after Loftus-Cheek’s slaloming drive towards goal.
46' Fulham get the match restarted from the kick-off! 
With a single goal likely to settle the contest, both Moyes and Parker will be looking to liven things up from the substitute’s bench - especially as the match drags on. While West Ham can certainly boast the more creative list of players to call upon: with the likes of Yarmolenko, Lanzini and Fornals, Fulham have the necessary requirements to steal a victory in their squad. Though not at his best recently, Mitrovic is certainly a handful for defenders, while on-loan Maja will be looking to make an impact in what would be his first appearance for the Cottagers.
Both sides enter the interval level at 0-0 after a very even opening 45 minutes at Craven Cottage. Neither side has done enough to put themselves ahead, though it isn’t for a lack of trying as both Fulham and West Ham have been very open and willing to push forward. The weather hasn’t exactly helped their cause as passes have been subject to the elements, but it will take a moment of higher quality in front of goal to settle this narrow contest. With the three points so valuable to both sides, we are likely to see a winner after the restart. 
45' HALF-TIME: FULHAM 0-0 WEST HAM. 
43' Lookman takes on his defender on the left side of the penalty area and fires a confident attempt at goal from a narrow angle - but he misses the target entirely.
41' Fulham notch their first attempt at goal, but it isn’t a particularly dangerous one as Cavaleiro’s weak header from inside the penalty area is stopped comfortably by Fabianski - who didn’t have to move.
39' Lemina lifts a beautiful pass over the top of the defence into the penalty area for Cavaleiro, whose beautiful first-touch to pluck the ball out of the air is met with an awful attempted pass to De Cordova-Reid, as Ogbonna is allowed to clatter it away.
37' West Ham won their last away London derby in the Premier League (3-2 vs Crystal Palace), ending a run of six without a win in such fixtures in the competition (D1 L5).
35' Lookman has a sight at goal from right outside the penalty area in a central position and fires a low strike towards goal. It’s a good effort through two closing defenders, but the forward drags his shot just wide.
33' Holding onto possession with nowhere to go, Fulham are comfortable just holding onto the ball and luring West Ham into a trap before hitting at pace. This time play goes through De Cordova-Reid, but his pass forward for Robinson puts the full-back offside.
31' With 15 minutes to go until half-time, it’s anybody’s game as the two sides have not done enough to trouble the goalkeepers. The three points are still very much on-offer, as we look set for a very even final hour. 
29' West Ham win back possession but they’re forced to work hard to keep it as Fulham press with intent. Dawson is made to move the ball very quickly near his own penalty area, but the visitors manage to deal with the pressure and win a throw-in up the pitch.
27' The rain continues to pour down at Craven Cottage, which has definitely affected play. The slick and muddy surface has skewed a number of passes and caused a number of turnovers - adding to the hectic nature of the match.
25' Lingard’s cross after a quick corner routine with Cresswell finds Soucek at the back post, but the midfielder misses the target narrowly from an acute angle.
23' Fulham have lost their last three Premier League games against West Ham, last losing four in a row between January 2008 and January 2009.
21' Cresswell delivers West Ham’s first corner, but Ogbonna is unable to have a similar impact at the other end as his effort is blocked and cleared. The Hammers regather and look to capitalise on the chaos, but Rice’s tame near-post shot is saved by Areola.
19' It’s Lookman who takes it again, but it comes to nothing as Ogbonna attacks the delivery and clears it away - at least temporarily.
17' Lookman takes a Fulham corner deep to the far post for Loftus-Cheek, but the designed set-piece only leads to another corner-kick, this time from the other side as the shot is blocked.
15' Coufal puts a cross into the penalty area after a sustained period of pressure, but Adarabioyo rises highest to nod the danger away.
13' OH SO CLOSE FOR WEST HAM! Cresswell delivers a fantastic cross into the penalty area from the left, but Antonio, Bowen and Soucek somehow all conspire to miss the relatively easy tap-in. Areola, rooted to the spot in desperation, can breathe easy with a goal-kick as the visitors miss their chance to go a goal up.
11' West Ham are finally settling on the ball after a first 10 minutes dominated by Fulham. The hosts have dropped back and put all 11 men inside their own half to see off the pressure.
9' Lemina hoists a pass forward from midfield looking for the run of Cavaleiro, but Dawson can see the misplaced pass go harmlessly behind for a goal-kick.
7' Lookman swings the first corner of the match into the penalty area, but Adarabioyo’s contact at the near post isn’t enough to direct the ball towards Fabianski as West Ham clear it away.
5' Great passage of play by Fulham, who get into the penalty area through Reed and Loftus-Cheek, only to see the shot from the edge of the box blocked by a well-placed West Ham defender.
3' Cresswell attempts to sneak the free-kick inside the near post with his left foot, but the full-back gets his angles wrong and misses the target by some distance.
2' Antonio wins an early free-kick just outside Fulham’s penalty area after Andersen was deemed to have gotten too physical with the striker during an aerial duel.
1' West Ham get the match underway from the kick-off!
West Ham make a single change from their 3-1 victory over Aston Villa, as Bowen replaces Fredericks on the right flank.
Fulham make three alterations from their 2-0 loss to Leicester last time out. Lemina replaces Anguissa in midfield, while a change of shape sees Aina drop to the bench for De Cordova-Reid. Finally, in attack - Cavaleiro leads the line instead of Mitrovic.
WEST HAM SUBS: Issa Diop, Manuel Lanzini, Ben Johnson, Mark Noble, Ryan Fredericks, Fabian Balbuena, David Martin, Andriy Yarmolenko, Pablo Fornals. 
WEST HAM XI (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Jarrod Bowen, Jesse Lingard, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.
FULHAM SUBS: Ola Aina, Joe Bryan, Marek Rodak, Michael Hector, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Josh Onomah, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Tim Ream, Josh Maja.
FULHAM XI (3-4-2-1): Alphonse Areola; Tosin Adarabioyo, Joachim Andersen, Kenny Tete; Antonee Robinson, Mario Lemina, Harrison Reed, Bobby De Cordova-Reid; Ademola Lookman, Ruben Loftus-Cheek; Ivan Cavaleiro. 
With 15 minutes to go before kick-off, let's take a look at how the two sides are lining up - starting with our hosts! 
Winners in five of their last six Premier League contests, West Ham’s incredible run of form has seen them shoot up the table into fifth; which would bring with it a Europa League place. The Hammers have had no problems finding the back of the net, averaging two goals per game in their last five. A win for the visitors would put them up above Liverpool and into fourth, at least until the Reds play Manchester City tomorrow.
A win today would take Fulham to within six points of Burnley, who represent safety in 17th. Having not managed a Premier League win in their last 11 games - since a 2-1 over Leicester in November 2020 - Scott Parker will have his work cut out for him if he wishes to keep his side in the top division. With just 17 goals in 21 fixtures, all eyes will be on Bobby De Cordova-Reid, who has five of them.
