Watford are presently on a five-match losing run in the Premier League and they have North London team Tottenham Hotspur as their next opponents as far as the competition is concerned. The Hornets are just outside the relegation zone and they can’t afford to lose more games at the moment to avoid being dragged into the relegation zone completely. As things stand, Watford have two points more than Burnley who occupy the last relegation spot though it must be pointed out thatthe Clarets have two games more to play over the Hornets. The Hornets are in the final safe place on the league standings.
Just like the Brentford game before their small hiatus, Watford took the lead through leading goalscorer Emmanuel Dennis before the Hammers replied with four goals, two goals in each half. Tomas Soucek and Said Benrahma scored for West Ham United in the first half before Mark Noble (spot kick) and Niko Vlasic sealed the 4-1 away win for West Ham United with two goals.
Watford will next face Tottenham Hotspur at home on New Year’s Day looking to avoid a sixth straight league defeat. Tottenham Hotspur are another Champions League football chaser.
