Encroachment from some Watford players so if they cleared a save it would have been taken again

Watford should be level. Duelofeu hits the bar with the goal at his mercy...

Watford pushing up, closing West Ham down at every opportunity. West Ham beat the lines and Anderson drives down the left. He pulls back for Lanzini who scuffs his shot - and a good chance goes begging.

Well since I've tuned in it looks as though normal service has resumed.

Seems the only purpose for defenders in this match is to keep the opposition onside.

Diop produces a great challenge to deny Deulofeu, who's had a lively start.

Oh Lanzy skews an Anderson cutback just wide.

Decent game this

Who was Noble giving a bollocking to?

Watford enjoy two corners in quick succession. West Ham fail to clear their lines but Diop comes to the rescue with a vital header.

Watford go close again but West Ham stand firm. It's another corner for the home side though.

By the book, it should be retaken if missed, whether an encroaching player clears it or not. And that's always been the rule, just rarely enforced.

It's been ten minutes of pretty solid pressure for the Hammers to navigate - bar the Lanzini chance. That's six minutes more than they held the lead for at Brighton...

Would it be too much to ask that whether defending or attacking we hoof the ****ing thing occasionally.......

Our second chance came from Yarmo being able to make the right decision after the ball broke for us. Could have easily try to plow through and possibly lose possession but instead Yarmo was able to link up with the others.

Giving the ball away far to easily.

Yarmolenko cuts inside and delivers a clever through ball for Haller. It's too clever for the Frenchman though, who sees it too late.
