Watford hosts West Ham United

Watford hosts West Ham United in a game from the third round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Vicarage Road in our English Premier League predictions for today.

Watford had a pretty good last season in the Premier League, but they didn’t start the new one in the best possible way. Javi Gracia’s boys lost their first two matches in the league, so they really need some points right now. In the first round Watford got crushed at home by Brighton & Hove Albion, while last week they their visit to Watford as well. Clearly the Hornets are still trying to get in a proper shape for the beginning of the new campaign, so it’d be interesting to see how they will do against West Ham.

West Ham’s start of the new season was not the best one as well. The Hammers suffered a heavy defeat from Manchester City in the first round, while in the second one Manuel Pellegrini’s team visited Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express and won a point with a 1-1 draw. The Mexican striker Javier Hernandez opened the scre for the visitors, but Leandro Trossard equalised for Brighton & Hove just few minutes later.

It’s Manuel Pellegrini’s second season at the London Stadium, so now the fans expect something more from the title winning Chilean manager. Pellegrini is arguably one of the best coaches in the league right now, so don’t be surprised if West Ham show some better level this season.

These are our English Premier League predictions for today for the game between Watford and West Ham United at the Vicarage Road on Saturday. Both teams didn’t start the campaign in the best way possible, so for both of them this game is a good opportunity to record a first win since the beginning of the campaign.
