If he scores here he'll be the first West Ham player to reach double figures in consecutive Premier League campaigns since Carlton Cole in 2008-09/2009-10. The Pole has made the most saves in the Premier League this season (141 saves) and has kept 7 clean sheets.

He admits that after a poor start to their campaign, it is pleasing to see the kind of football West Ham displayed in the last month and secure a top ten finish.

It's been a year plagued with injury and inconsistency for the east London outfit, yet this game provides the opportunity to quench any pessimism and propel themselves into next season with positive direction as well as a place in the top 10 next to their name.

Gerard Deulofeu threatened on a couple of occasions for the hosts in a half they largely dominated, but it was the visitors who dealt a hammer blow six minutes from half time.

West Ham have not won at Vicarage Road since the Hornets' promotion to the top-flight in 2015.

"It's been a frustrating year but I wanted to get back before the end of the season to get some minutes and confidence going into pre-season, so it feels good".

"We have one game left and we are only focused on that", defender Adrian Mariappa told Watford's official website.

It has been a season of frustrating inconsistency for Manuel Pellegrini's men. "We just hope we can get the three points (Sunday) against Watford and finish on such a high".

"I don't want to lose my fitness so I have to work through the summer".

"Also, with more than 50 points, that is not a bad amount considering we started the season so bad".

Marko Arnautovic bagged a brace in his last Premier League game to take his tally to nine for the season.
