Watford News and Form
The Hornets have lost back to back league games at the moment, going winless in three. In their last home game, they suffered a 1-2 reverse against Wolves and that is part of a home record of W8 D3 L7 this season. Watford have won three of their last six home games (D1 L2) and they are without a clean sheet in any of their last five. Actually home and away combined Watford have not earned a clean sheet in eleven games now. Of the eight home wins that Watford have earned this season, five of them have been by just the one-goal margin.
Just four times this season have Watford been leading at the half time break in home games. They have only opened the scoring in seven home fixtures 72% of their home goals this season have come in the second half of games. They do have the FA Cup to look forward to and a top half of the table finish in the league, if they avoid defeat in this game. So it has been a pretty decent campaign. In the last eight rounds of Premier League action though, only the three teams who have been relegated have earned fewer points than the Hornets have done in that sequence.

West Ham News and Form
The Hammers have taken back to back league wins, taking out Spurs and then Southampton. Those were victories recorded with clean sheets as well. Away from home this season West Ham have posted a W5 D3 L10. Their recent win out at Tottenham snapped a terrible run of games away from home, where the Hammers had earned just the one point in eight games. That’s behind them now though and part of their troubles on the road has been putting the ball in the back of the net. West Ham have averaged 0.9 goals per away game.
Just 39% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals this season, the Hammers conceding at an average of 1.5 per game. In total West Ham have only taken a clean sheet in 17% of their away games, and they have failed to score in 44% of their road fixtures. Home and away, West Ham have scored in each of their last four league games. Of their ten away losses this season in the EPL, seven of them have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Irons have opened the scoring in 7 of their 18 away games this season. A win would see them take a top ten finish at the expense of Watford.
