West Ham United hosts Watford in round 24 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Tuesday, February 8th at Olympic Stadium (London)
The bosses of West Ham have been looking for “their” coach for a long time. Quite unexpectedly, they appointed Moyes, who showed quite controversial results at his previous clubs. In principle, David was invited to London to save the Hammers from relegation. He coped with that task, so they left him, and the team waged a real fight for 4th place in the previous. Yes, it was unsuccessful, but the Irons fought to the last and lagged behind a range of usual favorites by only several points. And most importantly, West Ham manages to demonstrate stability. In the 2021/2022 draw, the Hammers maintain almost the same level, despite the workload in the Europa League (where they managed to qualify for the playoffs) and good results in the cups. But the last two rounds did not bring positive emotions. At first, there was a 2-3 defeat to Leeds at home. And then Rashford brought the victory to Manchester United in the 3rd added minute at Old Trafford. West Ham dropped to fifth place, and this is far from the limit.

Watford is in a very difficult situation. And so far, it is not clear what to expect from it. Before the pause associated with the matches of national teams, the bosses changed the coach for the 2nd time in the current season. They were disappointed in Claudio Ranieri. The Italian was once very successful with Leicester. But then there was a failure at Fulham. And the work at Watford brought an even more disappointing result. Yes, the Hornets gained several bright victories, and Denis Bonaventure became the discovery of the current championship. But in general, the results were terrible, and Watford gradually fell into the direct relegation zone. In the round before last, the Golden Boys limply lost to a direct competitor, Norwich (0-3). After that, the bosses broke up with the Italian, and Hodgson was seen as a fireman. Of course, Roy has tremendous experience, but will he have time to fix everything?
All four previous head-to-head matches ended with the victories of West Ham. And they were confident, with a score of 3-1 or 4-1. Having conceded first in the last game, the Hammers gained a landslide victory. Bookmakers believe that West Ham will win again. But the change of coach at Watford may have an effect, so we bet on Over 3.0 goals scored.
