The midfield four, based on their performances against Wigan, pick themselves but much more should be expected of Kovac, Behrami, Parker and Noble. The defence has been a source of worry all season, especially against set pieces. Da Costa however, looks a player that might become a legend in West Ham colours but there is still a lot of work to be done when it comes to defensive personnel.
At Upton Park early October last year, we drew with Fulham 2-2, the Hammers have a great unbeaten record at Craven Cottage in the last six visits. Unfortunately, this season has been so erratic that this record seems hollow. More interestingly though, a penalty has been scored in each of the last three matches between Fulham and West Ham. We have a wonderful scoring rate from penalties this season so this is a great stat to take note.
For what it's worth, I congratulate Fulham and Roy Hodgson for making it into the Europa League final. They are proudly flying the English flag and proving that the Premier League is not just about Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.
