There was a little movement in mid-table thanks to wins for the Hammers, Everton and Leicester on a weekend where Wolves and Watford were triumphing in the FA Cup, meaning those five teams are separated by just four points and lined up neatly like a Saturday morning bank queue.
However, Fulham were level in the second half when a mix up involving Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk allowed former Liverpool FC winger Ryan Babel to equalise. They deserved a goal but we deserved three points.
The Cottagers have also lost nine out of their previous ten Premier League games and are now on a run of six consecutive defeats.
The Senegal global scored his ninth goal in as many league games during a 2-1 win at Fulham, with team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold climbing one place into No 7 spot.

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi reportedly urges the club's board to sign Sadio Mane from Liverpool after being impressed by his performance against Bayern Munich.
"People are fighting for European spots and positions and trying to get in the top 10 and stuff".
Mane darted towards a backpedalling Timothy Fosu-Mensah and slotted a pass to Roberto Firmino, continuing his run to convert the Brazil forward's cutback from the byline.
Another howler, this time by Rico, decided the contest as the keeper spilled a tame Mohamed Salah shot and then hauled down Mane who pounced on the rebound, leaving Milner to stroke home the victor from the spot.
