Watford vs West Ham United Match Preview
Watford will look to get back to winning ways when they take on a West Ham United side that has a new manager at its helm. With victory paramount for both sides, this Watford vs West Ham United fixture promises to be entertaining. It would be played at the Vicarage Road Stadium on Sunday, November 19, so read the preview, betting tip and predictions.
Watford made a flying start to life under new coach Marco Silva but lost their momentum before the international break losing three consecutive matches. That includes a 3-2 loss at the out-of-form Everton which is a massive disappointment. They still are a respectable 9th in the Premier League (PL) table with 15 points from 11 matches. There is intense speculation about Silva’s future – Everton are interested in poaching Silva – and that looks to have impacted the results. Watford have been scoring at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 PL matches but have struggled for goals at home. They have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 home matches in the Premier League which remains a huge worry. The Hornets have scored in six of their last eight matches but kept only one clean sheet.
West Ham start life under new coach David Moyes with this tricky fixture as they look to get out of the relegation places. The Hammers have 9 points from 11 matches and are currently 18th in the PL table. Defence remains the top priority for Moyes as they have already shipped a league-high 23 goals in 11 goals. They have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 PL matches. The former Manchester United and Everton manager will hope to revive the fortunes of the club that lost 4-1 against Liverpool before the break. Overall, they have won two, lost two and drew two of their last six matches across competitions. West Ham have lost only three of their eight away games in all competitions but have drawn their last 3 away PL matches.
