Marco Silva’s men welcomed the Hammers to Vicarage Road this afternoon hoping to get the victory which would put an end to their three-game losing streak going into the international break.
And they look likely to get that win, leading West Ham 2-0 with 20 minutes of the game remaining.
That’ll be very disappointing for West Ham considering it’s their first game since David Moyes took over from Slaven Bilic as their manager.
You normally hope for an immediate bounce from a new boss taking over, but the London Stadium side haven’t got that.
And they weren’t helped with Gomes’ ridiculous double save from Arnautovic in the first half of the game:
That’s top quality goalkeeping from the Brazilian – and came at a pivotal time just before the break when the Hornets were trying to hold on to their 1-0 lead.
Will Hughes got the opening goal for the hosts, volleying home from inside the box, before Richarlison added a second after the break.
