Last season these two clubs split their two meetings in the Premier League. West Ham won 4-1 at Watford and Watford won 2-0 at West Ham.
West Ham United
West Ham got their first point last week in a 1-1 draw with Brighton. They are now 17th in the table and have a goal differential of -5. This is the worst goal differential in the league. West Ham will need at least a draw and since this game is against Watford, that is not too much to ask of them.
West Ham scored their first goal of the season, but that was not enough to get them three points. A Javier Hernandez goal in the 61st minute gave them a lead for about 4 minutes until the defense allowed Brighton to score. West Ham only had 43% of the possession and had just 8 shots. Even though Watford is not good, West Ham needs to control the ball more and finish on more of their chances. It seems obvious to say, but West Ham cannot afford to drop points to a team like Watford.
Watford are among the worst teams in the league so far this season. They have yet to win a game and have not even played to a draw. They are currently last in the EPL.
Watford looked better against Everton, but still lost the game 1-0. They held 56% of the possession, but only took 8 shots. They have not scored in two games so far, and will need to somehow get on the scoreboard just to give their team confidence.
I expect Watford to focus on scoring first. Obviously, they have conceded first in both matches and that led to them not being able to get much done. If they can play with a lead, they will have a chance to come away with at least a point.
Free West Ham United vs. Watford EPL Prediction:
Both teams have had a terrible start to the season, but I have to lean to West Ham because they have actually managed to get a result.
