Prediction: West Ham vs Watford

"I think in life generally if you work harder, you get the results".

He scored late in the game to settle nerves and when Watford finally realised they were in a game.

He grabbed his third goal in four games yesterday just a few weeks after Hammers waned him out and even he had his agent working over-time to find an escape route.

David Moyes took over as manager in November.

"Michail Antonio has done more training, so has Marko Arnautovic, but hopefully we are getting much closer to having players available", Moyes said.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has said he hopes David Moyes stays as manager for "many years".

A goal from the Mexican and the Austrian eased the Hammers' relegation fears, moving them level with Watford and five points clear of the Premier League drop zone.

"Against Bournemouth I scored a goal, I tried to play pretty well in the Cup [against Wigan last weekend] and, in the last game, against Crystal Palace, I tried to do my best".

Sullivan said: "I want to speak directly to our supporters and say how important it is that we all pull together during these times".

We have seen from these last three games that the diminutive forward has much still to give, and he could be the man to transport the Hammers from a relegation dog-fight to the relative comfort of mid-table anonymity. We still merited it, we stuck at it and got the job done.

He made his return to the starting XI against Watford at the London Stadium and capped a fine individual display by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win.

The co-Chairman was addressing the West Ham faithful in a video to reassure supporters more was being done to deliver success. It was a tough beginning to my time at West Ham. But the Hornets have only drawn six of their 26 league matches this season and the visitors look well placed to add to West Ham's problems. All teams need their best players.

"Some of them are close, but others like Pedro Obiang and one or two others like Edi Fernandes who are going to be out for a little while longer".
