1st Goal West Ham

Watford vs West Ham 28.12.2021

Despite the appointment of Claudio Ranieri to try and steer them off the relegation abyss, the wheels seem to be coming off the Watford bandwagon and they are staring at a full-blown crisis. They have lost their last 4 straight games and have dropped to 17th on the log, just 2 points away from safety.

West Ham have been terrific for the most part but a poor run of form in the last couple of weeks has seen Arsenal dislodge them from the top 4. They were also knocked out of the quarterfinals on the League Cup by Tottenham in their midweek matchup but there are no panic buttons yet as they have largely exceeded expectations thus far.

We feel this is a match they will be gearing up for. Watford is by all accounts a weak opponent and a win here could see them back in the top four depending on how other matches play out. We fancy them to break the ice here with the opening goal
