New West Ham recruit Patrice Evra may be involved despite having not played competitively since November.

West Ham United will be without Pedro Obiang, who underwent surgery to fix the medial collateral ligament in his right knee this week. He could play against Watford, he's not far away in my eyes, as he has been training.

"The experience he has got and the ability on top of that, it was nearly a no-brainer for us".

As for the visitors, Watford will be making the short journey across London with their confidence at an all-time high, under the guidance of new boss Javi Garcia, the Hornets managed to clinch a dramatic 4-1 home win over defending Premier League champions Chelsea on Monday night.

Watford could do the league double against West Ham for the first time. But with four draws in the Irons' last seven league games, it could be worth backing the visitors with money back if it ends level at [2.14].
