Watford are looking to maintain their good home form where they have grabbed 18 out of their 30 points so far this season. After they have made some new signings including Niang and Cleverely, along with the attacking strengths of Deeney and Zarate; it has helped them grab 8 points out of a possible 15 in recent weeks. Watford will look to continue that success with their goal scoring especially when they take on a West Ham team who have been shipping goals in 76% of their games all season. Watford have been a bit short of scoring with goals in only 68% of their games; but that goes up to 83% when they play at Vicarage road.
West Ham have been playing some good football in recent times with the uncertainty of Payet out of the way; they have replaced him with Snodgrass who gives them equally good service in their games. They will feel that they will be able to score against a Watford team who have shipped on in 84% of their games. A lot of that reliance will be on the on the likes of Antonio, Lanzini, Carroll and Snodgrass who will play as the front 4 in attack. West Ham’s success up front have seen them score in 80% of their Premier League games this season as well.
3 of the last 4 meetings between the 2 sides have seen both teams scoring including an exciting 4-2 win by Watford at the Olympic Park earlier in the season.
