Watford v West Ham: match preview

After a stellar season Watford have their last rehearsal before facing Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup. Results have been poor since knocking out Wolves with just one narrow win against Huddersfield in five matches emphasising the slide. Javi Gracia’s side will finish in the top half with a draw though while West Ham can leapfrog their opponents into 10th if they round out their campaign with a third successive league win. Manuel Pellegrini certainly seems fired up for the final day. He wants payback for Watford ending West Ham’s run of four wins in December. “They played well but now we are going to try and have out revenge,” Pellegrini said. Graham Searles
