Fulham begins a critical four-game stretch, sitting bottom of the Premier League table and needing points as they host West Ham.

The Whites’ next four matches see them take on the Hammers, Newcastle, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Huddersfield Town and games against fellow relegation candidates are becoming more and more critical.

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is unavailable after a controversial second yellow card against Manchester United saw him sent for an early shower.

Maxime Le Marchand is a big miss for the Whites, out with an undisclosed muscular injury, but that is the extent of their unavailable list as Calum Chambers, Floyd Ayite, Andre Schurrle, and Kevin McDonald are all ready to go, Ranieri confirmed.

West Ham will be without Jack Wilshere and probably Lucas Perez against Fulham on Saturday.

Midfielder Wilshere will sit out a third straight game with an ankle problem.

Striker Perez is also looking likely to miss out at Craven Cottage with a foot injury.

Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini said: “Lucas Perez has a pain in his foot, we are reviewing him and tomorrow we will see who will be in the squad. Jack Wilshere will not be involved in this game.”

Michail Antonio or the fit-again Andy Carroll will start in attack for Pellegrini’s side if Perez is ruled out.
