Predicted Watford XI to face West Ham in the Premier League

Watford claimed all three points with a 3-2 victory over Cardiff City in the Premier League last week but the Hornets will face a tough test when they make the trip to east London to face West Ham on Saturday.

Javi Gracia’s men currently sit 10th in the standings and they will need to string together a few more wins to regain their lost momentum.

West Ham are currently on a high after winning each of their last four games in the Premier League and the fans have every reason to expect a thrilling contest when these two evenly matched teams lock horns at the weekend.

Team News

Etienne Capoue will be back in contention after serving a three-game ban for having picked up a red card while Daryl Janmaat will be pushing for a return. Andre Gray (calf) and Will Hughes (groin) are ruled out for the weekend clash.

Formation: 4-2-2-2

Manager: Javi Gracia

Predicted XI

1. Ben Foster (GK)

The veteran shot-stopper was unlucky not to have kept a clean sheet in the last game and has always been a reliable presence between the sticks.

2. Kiko Femenia (RB)

The Spaniard contributed equally to both attack and defence against Cardiff in the last game.

3. Craig Cathcart (CB)

He put in a solid shift at the back in the last game and kept the opposition at bay by stamping his authority in the air.

4. Christian Kabasele (CB)

The Belgian has been one of the key components of Watford’s backline this season and should be amongst the starters for this one as well.

5. Jose Holebas (LB)

He scored a lovely goal in the last game but was a bit stretched at the back on a few occasions.

6. Abdoulaye Doucoure (CDM)

The Frenchman showed a lot of energy against Cardiff and registered his fifth assist of the season.

7. Domingos Quina (CDM)

The youngster has really made eyeballs turn with his impressive displays in the last couple of games and scored a fine goal against Cardiff last week.

8. Gerard Deulofeu (RM)

The Spaniard showed plenty of quality on the ball last week and scored the opener after weaving past the defenders with his trickery. Watford will once again rely on his creativity this week.

9. Roberto Pereyra (LM)

He has been the key playmaker for the Hornets this season and had a good outing against Cardiff City last week.

10. Isaac Success (ST)

The Nigerian didn’t start the last game but Gracia should hand him a start ahead of Ken Sema, who was not convincing with his display down the right.

11. Troy Deeney (ST)

He had a good game against Cardiff and played a part in both the goals with his link-up play in the final third.
