Predicted West Ham line-up to play Watford: Three changes from Bilic

Upton Park

Here is how we predict West Ham United and Watford will line up this week:

To be played on Wednesday 20th April 2016 at 18:45. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 4/6, Draw 14/5, Watford 4/1

West Ham United welcome Watford to Upton Park on Wednesday evening as the Hammers seek to return to winning ways after their controversial draw with Leicester City on Sunday.

With time running out it looked like West Ham would secure all three points against the high-flying Foxes but a contentious late penalty – the second of the game – ensured the points were shared.

As a result West Ham are sixth in the table, three points behind Manchester United with five matches remaining.

Watford are 12th with 41 points as things stand and with little left to play for apart from pride this season they could cause West Ham plenty of problems in their midweek clash.

In early team news West Ham are likely to be without Diafra Sakho while Alex Song is a minor doubt due to a knock.

Watford cannot call on Rene Gilmartin, Tommie Hoban or Joel Ekstrand but trio Craig Cathcart, Jose Holebas and Almen Abdi are all rated at 75 per cent to be fit if called upon.

With that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up this week:
