League position: 9th After 27 games, West Ham United had now won ten games so far in this Premier League season; as many as in the entire previous season. Michail Antonio made his 100th Premier League appearance in this game (all for the Hammers). Javier Hernández became the first Mexican player to score 50 goals in the Premier League. West Ham had now won three home London derbies in the Premier League in season for the first time since 1999-00. The Hammers had now kept four clean sheets so far in this Premier League season; only Fulham (two) had kept fewer.

Comments:

League position: 19th Fulham had now taken two points from their last 16 away games in the Premier League and remained as the only team without an away win in the division in this season. They had now lost six of their last seven games in the Premier League. The Whites became the first team to lose nine consecutive league London derbies. They had now conceded 60 goals so far in this Premier League season; more than any team in Europe’s top five divisions. Fulham had now conceded more than one goal in 21 of their 27 games so far in this Premier League season, including all seven in 2019. Ryan Babel’s goal was his first in the Premier League since 6 December 2010 for Liverpool against Aston Villa, 3,000 days ago.
