West Ham boss David Moyes is missing some real key players for this afternoon’s clash with Watford.

Declan Rice is unavailable for the Hammers through suspension whilst Angelo Ogbonna, Kurt Zouma and Aaron Cresswell all miss out through injury.

The Hornets are well rested and last played on December 10th. So Claudio Ranieri’s men will represent a very strong challenge for Moyes’s boys at Vicarage Road today.

West Ham lost 3-2 to Southampton at the London Stadium last time out. We are now sitting in sixth spot in the Premier League table having taken just five points from our last seven league games.

A win against Watford today is an absolute necessity if we are to maintain our push for the top six this season. Manchester United are hot on our heels but their draw away at Newcastle last night should give the Hammers players real impetus to batter Watford today.

West Ham boss David Moyes has made a few changes from our shambolic showing against Southampton two days ago and it is little wonder as to why.

The Hammers need to be better all-round today.

There can be no excuses. We need to get at Watford from the very first whistle and assert our supremacy onto them immediately.

Nothing less than a win will do. Despite missing so many key players, we still have more than enough to get the three points.
