This has the potential to be interesting:

Relegation-threatened West Ham United will lodge a complaint against Fulham for resting some of their best players at Hull City to prepare for their historic Europa League quarter-final with Wolfsburg on Thursday.

A West Ham insider told Soccernet: “We are checking the rules.”

“Roy Hodgson said on Match of the Day he rested players as they had a lot of games coming up starting with Wolfsburg this week. Hull got very lucky with Fulham fielding a very weak side as they play Wolfsburg on Thursday.

“Let’s hope they beat Wolfsburg and stay in the competition and do the same for us when we play them!”

Presumably, the West Ham officials preparing this complaint haven’t heard of irony. Remember this?
