Prediction: West Ham vs Watford

Share

West Ham United manager David Moyes spoke ahead their next Premier League match against Watford at London Stadium on Saturday and confirmed new signing Patrice Evra could make his debut.

His contract was soon terminated by the club, leaving him a free agent before West Ham snapped him up this week.

Moyes reiterated that his own West Ham future would be discussed at the end of the season after a week in which the club issued an official statement to deny reports from The Telegraph that he was unlikely to stay on beyond then regardless of whether or not he kept them in the top-flight.

Evra, 36, joined West Ham this week after he was released by Marseille for kicking a fan during the warm-up of a Europa League game in November.

He has not played a competitive game since November, following a controversial incident which saw him jump into the crowd and attempt to kick out at a fan.

The former France global won the Premier League title on five occasions at Manchester United, while has also lifted the Champions League and two Serie A titles in a glittering career.

"Do I have any concerns?" In answer to that, I would say that I am really enjoying my time here - I'm smiling!

"Moyes wrote for the London Evening Standard: ". there was a suggestion this week that I will leave West Ham at the end of the season, whatever happens.

"I'd considered signing him during January as, when Arthur got sent off, I knew we were short", Moyes said.

"I know him well, what he is capable of, what he will bring".

Moyes isn't the only one talking about Evra's move back to the Premier League. "Hopefully we're getting closer to getting those players available".

After the clash against Watford, they face a tricky away match at Anfield to take on high-flying Liverpool before facing Manchester United at home just three weeks later. He's worked with Gianluigi Buffon, Leonardo Bonucci and can feed that back to our squad on what it looks like at the top.
