West Ham United had emphatically not read the script. This was supposed to be Tim Sherwood’s big night; the first time that he had managed in the professional game and, also, the first steps towards redemption for Emmanuel Adebayor.

West Ham United v Fulham: Squad sheets

Both managers enter this fixture knowing that a bad result could quickly propel their names to the front of the sack race. Without a win in five games, Sam Allardyce’s side are clearly suffering from the lack of a quality striker and after one goal in four games, Carlton Cole may merit a start.
