Fulham fell deeper into relegation trouble with a 3-1 English Premier League (EPL) defeat by West Ham United at London Stadium on Friday.
EPL’s 19th-placed side made the ideal start, grabbing the lead in the third minute. Former Liverpool forward Ryan Babel scored from close range after he had earlier missed a golden chance.
There was controversy about West Ham’s equaliser when Mexican striker Javier Hernandez stooped to head in from close range, but replays suggested the ball went in off his arm.
Issa Diop’s first EPL goal, a header five minutes before the break, put West Ham in charge, and they were well on top after the break.
Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini made their returns for West Ham as substitutes.
But it was not until stoppage time that the Hammers made sure of the win as Michail Antonio powerfully headed home a cross from Arnautovic.
