A prime example of a club lacking a strong imperative at this point in the season is Fulham. Three losses in a row in the previous three rounds can be attributed to a lack of motivation as well as the absence of their finest player and leading scorer, Aleksandar Mitrovic.
If we consider all competitions, Marco Silva’s team dropped four straight games, giving up at least three goals in each of these.
They lost 2-1 away at Bournemouth last Saturday after blowing the advantage. With 12 points separating them from the danger zone, Fulham are currently resting pretty comfortably in 10th place in the league standings.
West Ham was able to get out of that same situation by earning four points over the prior two games. Naif Aguerd’s goal gave the Hammers a very significant 1-0 win over their direct rivals Southampton on Sunday.
