West Ham have taken seven points from the past 12 available to them.

The Hammers are looking to record successive league wins for only the second time this term. On the previous occasion, they beat Watford and Norwich, who they defeated last Saturday.

The Hammers are unbeaten against the four sides below them in the table this season, which includes Watford (W3, D2).

Michail Antonio, with six goals and one assist, has been directly involved in seven of West Ham’s nine league goals since the restart.

If selected, Mark Noble will be making his 500th West Ham appearance. He has scored three goals in his last two league games against Watford.

Watford have won only one of their past 11 away league fixtures (D2, L8) and are on a four-game losing streak on the road, doing so by an aggregate score of 0-8.

Watford have recorded only eight league wins this term, with four of them coming against the current bottom three.

The Hornets are the only club not to have scored a Premier League goal from outside the penalty area this season.

Nigel Pearson has lost three of his four league matches as a manager against West Ham.
