West Ham 2 - Watford 0: Marko Arnautovic return sparks Hammers victory

The Austria global has been absent from the Hammers' last three games because of a hamstring injury he picked up against Bournemouth on January 20.

"He's getting no praise", insisted Moyes. "He's getting told that he's got to keep at it and he's getting pushed all the way". We're telling him he is doing well for us, but he's not getting off the hook.

"I was hungry before I got the injury".

"He only trained for three days but you can see the impact he's had, and playing as a centre-forward has freed him up a bit. We've got a very good team when everybody's fit".

Despite the Hornets impressive 4-1 victory over Chelsea, Javi Garcia's side never was able to challenge Adrian with a save he couldn't make, as the Hornets pressure in the second half to equalize was blunted by solid defensive organization from Moyes' men.

Moyes' future at West Ham has been cast into doubt this week, but his side controlled the first half, with Hernandez seeing a goal disallowed due to a tight offside call.

Hernandez is also looking more like the player West Ham shelled out £18million for in the summer, and the Mexican nodded in his third goal in five games from Michail Antonio's cross.

Another two-wheeler manufacturer Piaggio India launched the scooters "Aprilia SR 125" and unveiled the "Aprilia Storm". The Suzuki pavilion had 17 models showcased across scooters, motorcycles, big-bikes as well as motor sports category.

"When he came in with it yesterday I said, "That looks great Marko, it really suits you", so he went away happy", added Moyes.

"That was a concern. But we nullified them", the Scot told reporters after the game.

West Ham took the lead in the 38th minute through Javier Hernandez, who took advantage of poor Watford defending to convert from a Michail Antonio cross.

Fans were disappointed with a lack of incoming players at the London Stadium on deadline day, with striker Jordan Hugill's arrival from Preston the only first-team acquisition.

"Today was not so good".

"We've got to sort out some of the problems, on and off the pitch, and try to show people there is light at the end of the tunnel".

In the earlier meeting this season, Watford defeated West Ham 2-0 behind goals from Will Hughes and Richarlison.
