Team news
Roberto Pereyra remains out injured for Watford, meaning loanee Tom Cleverley will continue.

New signing M’Baye Niang has impressed since arriving at Vicarage Road and will start from a right wing role.

Andy Carroll could be fit enough for the bench here, with Michail Antonio likely to deputise again in an unfamiliar forward role.

Aaron Cresswell has a minor niggle but should start from left full-back again.

Expected starting XI’s
Watford (4-3-3): Gomes; Cathcart, Kaboul, Prodl, Holebas; Capoue, Behrami, Cleverley; Niang, Deeney, Zarate
West Ham (4-2-3-1): Randolph; Kouyate, Fonte, Reid, Cresswell; Noble, Obiang; Feghouli, Snodgrass, Lanzini; Antonio
