3-4-3 Watford Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United: Unchanged Side For The Hornets?

Watford will travel to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United in what has the makings of a highly entertaining match on Saturday. A victory could propel either side into the top half of the Premier League table while a defeat could drag them back into the relegation dogfight. The Hornets secured an emphatic 4-1 win versus the reigning Premier League champions, Chelsea on Monday night and will come into this clash full of confidence whereas the Hammers suffered a disappointing 3-1 away defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion in their last league outing.

The recent history of the fixture makes a grim reading for the Hammers fans as their side has not tasted victory in their previous three meetings with the Hornets. Javi Garcia is expected to stick with the same lineup that faced the Blues and might deploy a 3-4-3 formation on Saturday.

3-4-3 Watford Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United

Defence

Orestis Karnezis is likely to retain his place in goal for the Hornets after conceding a goal in his last two league matches and will be protected by a back three of Adrian Mariappa, Sebastian Prodl and Jose Holebas. The Watford defence performed relatively well against a toothless Chelsea team on Monday night and Javi Garcia will be hoping that his defenders can keep up their good form in his backline.

Midfield 

Daryl Janmaat and Marvin Zeegelaar will likely resume their roles as the wing-backs for this Hornets team. Janmaat scored a wonderful solo goal against Chelsea to break the deadlock and mark an incredible night in Watford’s history. He will be hoping to put on a similar display when he laces up to face West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Etienne Capoue and Abdoulaye Doucoure are expected to retain their central midfield partnership once again in the absence of Tom Cleverley, who is a major doubt of this clash.

Attack

Gerard Deulofeu is likely to start on the right side of the front three which will also feature the Brazilian, Richarlison on the left flank while Troy Deeney starts up top for the Hornets.

Both Deeney and Deulofeu got their names on the scoresheet versus Chelsea and will look to do the same against the Hammers on Saturday. Roberto Pereyra may have to settle for a place on the bench following his impressive performance as a substitute when he found the back of the net with a clever finish against Antonio Conte’s side on Monday night.
