West Ham United are without a win in their last three league games ahead of their London derby against Watford at London Stadium.
The Hammers, who have been ravaged by injuries in the recent weeks, come into this game on the back of a 3-1 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion. However, their last two home games have ended in 1-1 draws.
The London side currently sit in the twelfth spot with 27 points, which puts them only three points clear of the drop zone.
Watford are just ahead of the Hammers in the 11th spot with 30 points. The Hornets produced their best result in recent weeks as they defeated champions Chelsea 4-1 at Vicarage Road last weekend – the first win of Javi Garcia’s reign.
Since Garcia has replaced Marco Silva in the hot seat, the Hornets have picked up four points from their two games.
The win over the Blues was massive for the confidence of Garcia’s side, and now they must fancy themselves to get something from the game on Saturday.
However, the Hornets are without a win in their last six away games, and they have managed only two goals in that run.
Earlier this season, the Hornets managed a 2-0 win over their opponents at Vicarage Road.
