West Ham vs Watford match preview

West Ham and Watford sit in 16th and 17th position in the league respectively, both on 34 points. They’re being chased by Bournemouth and Villa – both in the relegation zone and both on 31 points. As a result, tonight’s match represents an important opportunity for West Ham or Watford to put some distance between themselves and the drop zone.

Even a draw would be a positive result, as it would effectively put both teams two games away from being overtaken in the league standings.

However, in recent outings, both teams have shown they can score goals and take all three points. Last time out the Hammers put four past already-relegated Norwich, while Watford pulled off a 2-1 win over Newcastle.

Watford fans were worried last weekend, no doubt, when captain and goal-scorer Troy Deeney was substituted due to a knee injury. However, it seems he will be fit to play this evening. He is crucial to Watford’s hopes of securing all three points.

Meanwhile, West Ham could see both Felipe Anderson and Robert Snodgrass return to the match-day squad, both having recovered from injuries.

The game is balanced on a knife edge, with West Ham perhaps making themselves slight favourites thanks to recent results. It’s poised to be competitive and you can catch all the action live on Sky Sports tonight.
