West Ham v Watford team news

West Ham: Robert Snodgrass remains a doubt for this game with a back injury that has kept the Scot out all summer, while Felipe Anderson hasn’t played in almost a month because of a thigh problem.

Manager David Moyes could draft Andriy Yarmolenko back into the XI, while Sebastian Haller will probably again start on the bench.

Watford: Troy Deeney is a worry after picking up a knee injury in the 2-1 win over Newcastle last time out.

Isaac Success, Gerard Deulofeu and Daryl Janmaat will all miss the game, while Andre Gray may get a start if Deeney is ruled out.

Our prediction: West Ham v Watford

This is set to be a tense game on Friday night as defeat could spell disaster for either side.

Don’t be surprised if it starts off cagey and goalscoring chances are hard to come by.

The match looks set to be a draw unless an individual can pull off something spectacular. All eyes are therefore on Antonio and, if he plays, Deeney.

Our prediction: West Ham 0-0 Watford

(Draw 0-0: 17/2 at Bet365)
