West Ham won the 30th round of the Premier League with a 1:0 victory over Fulham. They managed to succeed after six consecutive away London derby losses, decided by Harrison Reed’s own goal.

The Hammers started actively, but after the opening three minutes the home side went on the offensive. Suddenly West Ham were running without the ball, but not allowing their opponents to shoot. For a derby, the game had very little momentum.

In the 24th minute, the visitors took their first real chance. After a collaboration with Vladimir Coufal, the ball found its way to Jarrod Bowen, whose cross into the box was unluckily knocked into his own net by midfielder Harrison Reed.

Fulham continued to be active, but it wasn’t until the 37th minute that they made their scoring debut when Antonee Robinson’s fierce shot flew just over the crossbar. It was 0-1 to the Hammers going into the cabins after a dull first half.

Just after the change of sides Fulham hit the space between the three posts for the first time, but Lukasz Fabianski had an easy job.

Danny Ings could have increased the lead at the other end, but Benrd Leno made an excellent save.

Then, somewhat surprisingly, West Ham took over the creativity for 15 minutes, but only produced an inaccurate shot from Said Benrahma. In the 80th minute, Michail Antonio scored, but Leno pulled one back.

At the other end, Fabianski came up big when he held off a Carlos Vinicius raid and punched the ball away. West Ham moved up to 13th place with the win, three points above relegation. Fulham remain in 10th place.
