West Ham vs Watford Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham vs Watford
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: London Stadium (London).

The Hammers are flying high coming into the festive period. They won four on the spin to break into the top half of the Premier League standings. Mauricio Pellegrini’s men were just thriving in the final third netting as many as 11 goals in the process as only a 0-2 victory over Fulham last weekend saw them score fewer than three goals in a game along the way. Can they keep rolling and make it five in a row on Saturday afternoon against Watford?

To make it even more impressive for West Ham, they enjoyed a splendid attacking form with a host of troubles with sidelined players in the final third. Marko Arnautovic missed out for last couple of weeks, while Lucas Perez also suffered a knock and skipped the mentioned win at Carven Cottage last time around. Javier Hernandez was team’s lone healthy striker. Goals, anyways, came mainly from behind as midfielder Robert Snodgrass and Felipe Anderson were usually those who stole the show.

West Ham vs Watford: Head-to-head

West Ham lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into 31st encounter with the Hornets.

Watford enjoyed a run of two wins and a draw in three games against the Hammers before West Ham took a 20 victory when teams last took on each other.

The Hammers won 10, drew 1 and lost 4 of 15 home outings against Watford.

West Ham vs Watford: Prediction

It’s been a turbulent season full of ups and downs for Watford so far. They returned to the top half of the ladder after a 3-2 victory over Cardiff City last Saturday at Vicarage Road. The Hornets previously held the likes of Everton to a 2-2 draw at Goodison.

Knowing about West Ham’s superb attacking form and Watford’s last pair of results, we just have to push for goals at both ends at the odds of 1.57 here. You can also back three or more goals in the game at 1.72 as well as the Hammers to net two or more at 2.00.
