Marvin Zeegelaar: Watford’s West Ham loss serves reminder Premier League survival battle is still on

skyMarko Arnautovic scored on his return from injury as West Ham boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

BBC SportWatford, who remain 11th, went close through Adrian Mariappa’s header and Gerard Deulofeu’s free-kick but Adrian was equal to both efforts.

guardianWatford were uninspired. They displayed none of the brio that allowed them to crush Chelsea last week, with Gerard Deulofeu and Richarlison failing to find space on the flanks, and were fortunate when the lively Hernández had a goal ruled out by a tight offside decision in the 31st minute.

TelegraphJavi Gracia, the Watford manager, accused his players of not being “aggressive” enough, saying: “Our last match against Chelsea showed us how we can get points: running, fighting. And, today, we didn’t do it enough.”

The Hornets NestTo say we were surprised at this shift in performance would be a lie. It’s so wonderfully Watford.

FranWatford had played considerably better in the second half but, while it could be said that the score was a little flattering to the hosts, some poor defending and equally poor finishing meant that it felt as though the Hornets didn’t deserve anything from the game.

10th February 2001- New Division One, Watford 2 Portsmouth 2

BSAD image …whatever they were trying to create in the second half, we should applaud Watford and Portsmouth. Sure, it was incredibly ugly…but, as I’ve explained, prototypes often are. No, we should encourage their attempts to create a new sport with the rucking and mauling of rugby, the sparse incident of snooker, and trace elements of football. However, we should also request that they don’t trouble us again until it’s been fully tried, tested and perfected.

BSAD imageThis was going to be a fully-interactive role-playing report on the second half of the match, but in all honesty there wasn’t a whole load of interaction so here’s a rundown of the roles the players played.
