West Ham's Mark Noble
West Ham’s Mark Noble is struggling with a rib injury sustained in training

TEAM NEWS

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble looks set to miss the visit of Fulham because of a rib injury.

Forward Michail Antonio remains sidelined by a hamstring injury but Aaron Creswell should be available and Said Benrahma is in contention for his first start.

Fulham’s Mario Lemina has a minor injury and will be assessed, while Aboubakar Kamara is still suspended.

The Cottagers otherwise have no fresh injury concerns.

LAWRO’S PREDICTION

West Ham were decent in defeat against Liverpool last time out but nothing short of a win will do for the Hammers here.

Fulham got their first league win of the season on Monday but West Ham are a totally different proposition to West Brom – or at least they should be.

Prediction: 2-0
