Controversial Match of the Day pundit Mark Lawrenson has backed West Ham to pick up three vital points against Watford this weekend.
Lawro reckons Saturday’s game is huge for both teams, with the Hammers, in 12th, three points above the drop zone and the Hornets just one place further up the table.
And while Watford beat Chelsea 4-1 at the weekend, he reckons David Moyes’ men will come out victorious. Writing in his BBC Sport column, he said: “Watford had a great win over Chelsea on Monday night – no-one saw that coming. The Hornets are still a team that you worry a little bit about, though, because they could easily go a few games without another victory.
“West Ham are still in trouble too, although Marko Arnautovic could be back from injury for this game and Patrice Evra is available to make his debut after signing earlier in the week.
“A win would be huge for either team, and the same goes for every team down there, because not all of the teams below them will pick up points this weekend.”
Lawro’s prediction: 1-0
