West Ham United faces Watford on Friday, July 17th at London Stadium in an English Premier League match. 

West Ham United was victorious in a big way in its last match against Norwich City. West Ham United defeated the relegated Norwich City club by a final score of 4-0. There were not many different goal scorers in the win for West Ham United, in fact, there was only one specific person who scored all four goals. Michael Antonio had an amazing game with four goals, two in the first half and two in the second. The win for West Ham United relegated Norwich City from the Premier League officially, and it gave its own team a bit of breathing room in the Premier League standings. West Ham United is certainly not safe from relegation quite yet, and the same goes for the team they are playing on Friday in Watford. 

Watford was also able to earn three points in this last game, as Watford defeated Newcastle United by the final score of 2-1. Newcastle United got on the scoreboard first in the 23rd minute, but that did not stop Watford. Troy Deeney cashed in on two penalty shots, one in the 52nd minute and the other in the 82nd minute to give Watford the crucial victory and three points. Watford's matchup against West Ham United will be extremely hard-fought for both sides, as the two clubs are tied in the Premier League standings regarding points (34). Each team only has a three-point safety net from AFC Bournemouth, and four points on Aston Villa, therefore this match is extremely important for either team's safety in the Premier League.

The last time West Ham United and Watford met was on August 24th of 2019, in which West Ham United was victorious by the final score of 3-1 on the road. 

West Ham United plays a more open game, concentrating on counter-attacks and catching the opponent sleeping as they did against Chelsea. Watford has been caught sleeping before, as I remember the match Watford played against Burnley not too long ago where a counter-attack was the difference-maker in their loss. With all of this being said, I will take West Ham United to win this game, as this team can score goals at a much better rate and should be able to surprise Watford with an effective counter or two.
