West Ham United will welcome Watford at the London Stadium on Tuesday night as they focus on securing a positive result at home. The Hammers managed to earn a hard-fought 2-1 win over Kidderminster Harriers in the FA Cup in their last outing.
David Moyes could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name his best XI for this game. Łukasz Fabiański is a major doubt for this game as he continues to recover from an illness. Otherwise, Moyes should have a strong squad to choose from in midweek.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Watford
Fabianski should get the nod to start in goal for West Ham if he can recover in time for this clash. Craig Dawson will operate along with Kurt Zouma at the heart of Moyes’ defence as they try to secure a clean sheet in front of their home fans.
Vladimír Coufal could get a start at right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and express themselves so that they can offer enough support to the front players.
Ryan Fredericks will be named on the bench as he offers cover for the right-back spot.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will assume the duties of the holding midfielders as they look to establish their dominance over the opposition at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen will play just ahead of them as part of the West Ham attack. Bowen scored the match-winner against Kidderminster last Saturday which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game.
Andriy Yarmolenko will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final third when required.
Michail Antonio will lead the charge for the Hammers up top. The English striker needs a goal to boost his confidence, so he will be eager to put on a good showing versus the Hornets in this midweek league clash.
