West Ham has just suffered a painful defeat at Old Trafford against direct rivals in the Top 4 race, Manchester United. Welcoming opponent Watford today is a great opportunity, so that The Hammers can get up since they fell in the last round in the English Premier League.
West Ham always show dominance in the confrontation with Watford. That is why in the last 6 confrontations between the two sides, The Hammers won 5 victories and only received 1 defeat. However, this time, the army of coach David Moyes really is not in the best form. In the last 3 rounds, the London team only earned 3 points. Currently, they have dropped to 5th and are 1 point behind Top 4.
Although still holding the ball well, the ability to finish weakly is preventing West Ham from getting the desired results. But with really impressive home form having won 2 of the last 3 matches, there are also many people who dare to put their faith in the army of coach David Moyes in this match. Remember this season, many times The Hammers this season won all 3 points at home against weaker teams, such as Leeds United or the latest Norwich City.
On the opposite side of the field, Watford cannot have a stable performance at the moment. After 21 rounds, the team from Hertford city has only 15 points, which is exactly 1 point less than the top ranked team Norwich City and ranked 18th, a position in the relegation group. Although they only had a 0-0 draw against Burnley in the previous round, during the trip to London today, The Hornets were under considerable psychological pressure because of their bad performance away from home.
Specifically, in the last 7 trips as guests, they lost 4 matches, while only 1 time got 3 full points. It is worth mentioning that in those 7 away matches, there were 6 Watford matches that were powerless to not let the opponent concede a goal. Before a West Ham is flourishing under the reign of David Moyes, the guests are likely to have to receive a not so good ending.
