Watford expect Tuesday’s Premier League match with West Ham WILL go ahead despite the Hornets still struggling with Covid after more positive tests

  • Watford have not played since December 10 due to a Covid outbreak at the club
  • Matches against Burnley, Crystal Palace and Wolves have since been postponed
  • Covid issues have since eased but a number of players will still be isolating


Watford are confident Tuesday’s game against West Ham will go ahead despite further Covid issues.

Claudio Ranieri’s side have not played since December 10 and have seen their last three Premier League games against Burnley, Crystal Palace and Wolves postponed after an outbreak prevented them having enough players to field a team.

While the club’s issues have eased slightly ahead of West Ham’s visit, a number of players will be isolating and will miss the game after further positive tests.

But Watford expect to have sufficient numbers available to play at Vicarage Road on Tuesday afternoon.

The Hornets head into the match on the cusp of the relegation zone in the Premier League and will be keen to put some points on the board even with multiple games in hand over sides around them in the table.

Despite West Ham’s recent drop off in form, Watford have been poor on home soil this term, with just one victory at Vicarage Road in the top flight since the opening day of the season.
