Prediction West Ham vs Watford

The Hammers really struggled against Kidderminster this weekend, but it was a classic FA Cup in terms of non-league opposition and a difficult ground to face.

Back at home and against a Watford side who struggled to create much against Burnley, West Ham should find their way back to winning ways in the league, although Hodgson continues to make the Hornets stronger at the back.

West Ham win, 2-0.
