With Felipe Anderson, Sebastien Haller and Mark Noble all returning to first-team training this week, manager Manuel Pellegrini will have some selection dilemmas ahead of West Ham’s trip to Watford.
Club captain Noble has only just returned from a number of weeks out with a dead leg so he is likely to be named on the bench with Jack Wilshere expected to keep his place.
Javier Hernandez may have to make way despite scoring against Brighton last weekend. With Haller fit, Pellegrini is unlikely to leave out his £45m record signing.
After Manuel Lanzini performed well at the Amex, Robert Snodgrass is the likeliest to be dropped to accommodate Anderson back in the side at Vicarage Road
Angelo Ogbonna could also make way for Fabian Balbuena with the Italian having contributed to Brighton’s equaliser last weekend.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Watford:
Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Masuaku, Rice, Wilshere, Fornals, Lanzini, Anderson, Haller
Predicted Score – 2-0 to West Ham
