"I'm not sure where the first goal came from as I don't usually score goals like that!"

As things stand entering the final matchday of the 2018-19 Premier League season, Watford (14-8-15) sit 10th in the table on 50 points.

Arnautović has had a pretty low-key second half of the season, and will hope to end it on a high.

Last time out, Watford had their own profligacy to blame as they were defeated 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"We want to break into the top eight next season and we're going in the right direction".

West Ham won their first Premier League away game against Watford (2-1 in March 2000) but are winless in their subsequent four top-flight games against them at Vicarage Road (D2 L2).

They also feel the West Ham star exaggerated his fall and believe they have a strong case for the red card to be rescinded.

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.

Yemen: Lollesgaard Inspects Houthi Withdrawal on Tuesday
Coalition forces, now massed 4km from Hodeidah port on the edges of the city, are to retreat 1km from two flashpoint districts. Both sides agreed in December to withdraw from Hodeida, which handles 70 percent of Yemen's food imports and humanitarian aid.

Ceballos has spent two years at Real Madrid after leaving Betis but endured an uneasy relationship with Zidane last season.

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

And then they backed him and Pellegrini with a £100 million warchest for 10 new players.

Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini prepares to lock horns with a familiar face.

Javi Gracia says Watford can be proud to be the only Premier League club from outside the top six to be in a major cup final after a "massive week" for English football. Gracia urged his side to deliver a flawless end to the season and they made a supercharged start, carving open the West Ham defence time and again.

Defeat means Watford miss out on finishing in the top 10 in the top flight since 1986-87, with the Hammers leapfrogging their opponents at the last.

The Hammers' defence will most likely be the same as the last two games.
