Watford vs West Ham United Match Preview
Watford were unlucky to lose at Everton last week and compensation could await them against a West Ham side who have also made a sluggish start to the new season.
The Hornets were well beaten 3-0 at home by Brighton on the opening full day of the campaign but looked much closer to their best form when edged out by a solitary goal on their visit to Merseyside, their performance probably worthy of a point.
Javi Gracia is a manager who has identified his best team and he said after the Everton game he would not make sweeping changes, instead trusting the players who did so well last term by getting Watford to the FA Cup Final and challenging for seventh in the Premier League.
The worry is that they have got into a losing rut (see stats above) but the FA Cup Final was a distraction when they were struggling at the end of last season and it should only take one good result to get Gracia’s side upwardly mobile again.
West Ham were thrashed 5-0 at home by Manchester City and then looked clear second best when pegged back for a 1-1 draw at Brighton after scoring firmly against the run of play.
Defeat for either team here would set some early alarm bells ringing about what the season has in store and we will count on Watford to make home advantage count and increase the worries for the Hammers.
