West Ham v Watford: Confirmed Starting Line-ups – Payet returns

Posted by

West Ham take on Watford at the London stadium hoping to get their league campaign back on track after a shaky start – losing twice and recording just a single victory.

The Hammers will welcome back star man Dimitri Payet as well as Lanzini and summer signing Zaza will start upfront.

The France international had a brilliant breakthrough season for West Ham United after joining last summer from Marseille.

The 29-year-old played a key role in the Hammers finishing the league campaign in seventh-place netting 12 goals and providing 15 assists in 38 appearances.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has decided to drop Gokhan Tore from the starting line-up but he will be available from the bench.

Sofiane Feghouli has not been included in the match day squad despite recovering from injury.

Watford go into the clash in having picked up just one point in their first three games this season.
