Watford face off against West Ham in the Premier League at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Hornets will be looking to kick-start their 2019/20 season and regain some confidence after having lost their previous two games against Brighton and Hove Albion and Everton respectively.

Watford are not in the best shape at the moment, especially considering that a number of key players are currently sidelined due to injury.

Their club captain Troy Deeney is expected to be sidelines for up to several weeks after having undergone minor knee surgery, according to a report published by BBC Sport. 

The report added that Abdoulaye Doucoure and Roberto Pereyra are also injury doubts, though new Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr is in line to make his debut for the club.

Both sides will head into the game looking for their first win of the season. The Hornets can go into the game with a positive mindset, especially considering that they have won five Premier League games against West Ham, which is the most amount of wins that they have acquired against a single Premier League side.

West Ham will however have a moral advantage given that they had a better summer transfer window and have most of their players available for the game.

Watford enter the game as the only side that have yet to register a point or a goal this season. Anything other than defeat would be satisfactory from the game but a loss will mean that there will be serious cause for concern for the club.
