The International week is over and English Premier League resumes as West Ham host Watford at the new London Stadium.
West Ham were no match with Manchester City last weekend as they lost 3-1 at Etihad stadium. Guardiola’s men went 2-0 up in the first half of the game, as Raheem Sterling and Fernandinho registered their names on the score sheet. Michail Antonio pulled one back for the hammers via a far-post header, but sterling grabbed a brace to make it 3-1. West Ham now have 3 points from 3 games, losing their first two away games to Chelsea and Manchester City. They now hope for another home win to keep a clean record at home.
Watford have struggled in their first 3 games this season, they have just one points so far. They have played 3 tough teams Southampton, Chelsea and Arsenal which could also be a nightmare for most teams in the league. They suffered a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal in their last game, as Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil or featured on the score board. Roberto Pereyra scored the Hornets’ only goal which turns out to be a debut goal. The Hornets now hope for a win to avoid rocking the bottom of the league table.

Both teams haven’t been on a great deal of form, they lost most of their last 5 games in all competitions. West Ham has a slight advantage as they are playing at home in their new stadium. The hammers have lost 3 of their last 5 games, won 1 and drawn 1. Meanwhile, watford has lost 3 of their last 5 games in all competitions and drawn 2.
The hammers will run out winners at London Stadium but the two teams will have a taste on the goal. I will be putting my extra pennies on the correct score of 3-1 at the odds of 16/1 (17.00).
