West Ham's final away league game of the season has now been confirmed as a Sunday fixture.
The match, initially scheduled for Saturday, 1st May has finally been confirmed as a Sunday match, to kick off at 3pm. The change in schedule is due to Fulham's continued participation in the Europa League.
West Ham have a fantastic record at Craven Cottage in recent years; since the turn of the century the two teams have met there on seven occasions with West Ham victorious five times and the remaining two games drawn.
Indeed you have to go back as far as 1974 to find a Fulham home win against United; that coming in the third round of the League Cup when second half goals from Alan Mullery and Alan Slough cancelled out Trevor Brooking's 34th minute opening goal, in a game most memorable for being played under just three floodlights after one failed early on in the game.
West Ham, of course, had the last laugh that season when they beat a Fulham side captained by Bobby Moore 2-0 at Wembley in the FA Cup Final.
