Watford star Ikechi Anya says West Ham can make the Champions League

The Hammers have had a stunning start to the Premier League season.

West Ham United are certainly enjoying a top start to the Premier League season. They have beaten the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and most recently Chelsea which has seen them rise to third in the Premier League table - just two points off of Manchester City and Arsenal at the top.

However it is results against the likes of their weekend opponents Watford that might end up proving more pivotal toward the end of the campaign.

The Hammers take on The Hornets at Vicarage Road tomorrow and will be looking to keep up their excellent form in a tough location.

One Watford player knows that West Ham will be a tough ask and is also backing them to continue their good form this season.

He told the Daily Mail this week:

"They've been brilliant, their results, especially against the top four, have been incredible.

"They've got a manager there who's got them organised and they've proved they are a great team.

"It's going to be difficult but we're ready to prove our abilities and I think we could get a good result.'

"They need to be lucky (to qualify for CL), they need to keep their players fresh, hopefully from their point of view no injuries but I don't see any reason for this start not to go on - hopefully barring Saturday."

West Ham will certainly need to pick up a result at the likes of Watford if they are going to finish in the top four this season.

Watford in the meanwhile will be simply hoping for another three points after beating Stoke City last weekend and going level on points with Swansea City and Everton in the Premier League.
