"Watford kept the ball a lot because they needed to score but they didn't have a great chance you felt they had to score".

David Moyes admitted he never thought he could guide his West Ham side into the top ten upon taking over at the club.

The Hammers boss also commented on the return of both Michail Antonio and Arnautovic.

West Ham's joint chairman David Sullivan has revealed plans to overhaul the club's player recruitment and scouting system amid criticism over their January dealings. On paper though, it has all the makings of a low scoring affair, with Watford struggling to find the net away from home and five of West Ham's last seven home games seeing under three goals, the trend looks to continue on Saturday afternoon.

Former French defender Patrice Evra marked his return to English football by joining West Ham United on a short-term contract.

"But I think when you heard what the supporter said, you can understand it more".

In a wide-ranging interview on West Ham TV, Sullivan urged supporters to stick together and get behind the team over the last 12 games of the season.

Despite the Hornets impressive 4-1 victory over Chelsea, Javi Garcia's side never was able to challenge Adrian with a save he couldn't make, as the Hornets pressure in the second half to equalize was blunted by solid defensive organization from Moyes' men.

West Ham are vying to go five successive league and cup games without defeat for the first time at the London Stadium. All teams need their best players.

"He's a good manager and will prove it". However, a combination of excellent goalkeeping from Adrian, disciplined defending from West Ham and some freakish decisions by Watford's front men, they were unable to capitalise.

West Ham should have finished Watford off 18 minutes from time, but Hernandez failed to square to Arnautovic after a darting run into the area and Karnezis managed to halt the striker.

In fact, they have only earned one point and scored two goals in six away matches since beating Newcastle in November.
