Evra returns to English football, joins West Ham

Evra returns to English football, joins West Ham

"We had half chances to score but not clear".

It really was a complete display from West Ham in the contest, as Moyes was obviously buoyed by the return of Arnautovic and Michail Antonio to the starting lineup.

The Mexico worldwide was decisive in legitimate fashion just before half-time, though, heading in for his third goal in four Premier League appearances. With Watford failing to win a single away game in their last seven attempts, West Ham will be looking to get back to winning way and extend the gap over the bottom three.

Although the visitors enjoyed their best spell of the match after the restart, Hammers 'keeper Adrian was rarely troubled - although one save from a Gerard Deulofeu free kick midway through the half was particularly important. And on Saturday at the London Stadium, they indeed received just that.

Another Joao Mario free-kick caused trouble soon after, picking out James Collins whose header found Arnautovic, only for Karnezis to pull off a desperate save.

Watford will feel slightly aggrieved not to have got more from a match where they had 63% of possession and had as many shots as their hosts.

Moyes faced the media in the lead up to the Watford match and suggested that the 36-year-old has been keeping himself fit while he has been out of the sport, and is in line to feature for West Ham against the Hornets.

West Ham are vying to go five successive league and cup games without defeat for the first time at the London Stadium. He's not far away in my eyes as he has been training.

Watford have the chance to win back-to-back league games for the first time since November.

David Moyes has claimed that he did not expect to steer West Ham United to the brink of the top 10 of the Premier League table.

But in the end it was the Hammers who would go on to secure all three points courtesy of the returning Austrian's seventh goal in West Ham colours. The Hammers kept their first clean sheet since December (3-0 at Stoke), ending a run of eight games in which they'd conceded.
