Merson backs West Ham United to get back to winning ways

West Ham United have been going through a bad patch on and off the pitch.

The East London outfit have had to deal with numerous injury problems, which has depleted their squad.

Andy Carroll, who has been in and out of the team due to injuries, is on the sidelines, while Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic have also been out of action with hamstring problems.

On the pitch, things have not been much better as the club were recently knock out of the FA Cup by Wigan Athletic.

The team also had to settle for draws with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Last weekend, the Hammers were humiliated by Brighton in a 3-1 loss at the Amex Stadium.

This afternoon, David Moyes’s men will return to the London Stadium, but they face a Watford side that are fresh off a 4-1 thumping over title holders Chelsea.

Pundit Paul Merson, though, thinks that West Ham will manage to keep the Hornets at bay in a 2-0 victory.

The ex-Arsenal man told Sky Sports:

“West Ham had a bad result against Brighton but David Moyes has done well overall, and I don’t think the speculation about him this week will hurt them. They’ve got to get back and win, and I think they will.”
