West Ham 23-10 for drop after Watford loss

David Moyes got off to the worst possible start as West Ham manager after his side were beaten 2-0 at Watford.

The defeat means West Ham remain in the relegation zone and the 18th-placed Hammers are 23-10 with Paddy Power to be relegated with many supporters in the away end calling for the current owners to quit.

Will Hughes got Watford off to a flyer and Richarlison doubled Watford's advantage in the second half as the Hornets moved up to eighth.

Watford have reportedly told Everton that no amount of money will tempt them to part ways with Toffees target Marco Silva, although bookmakers remain keen on the Portuguese manager swapping Vicarage Road for Merseyside.

Silva is 6-5 with Betfred to replace Ronald Koeman on a permanent basis and man-of-the-match Hughes is 33-1 with Sky Bet to force his way into England's World Cup squad in Russia next summer.

Zenit v Celtic

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Zenit have won 16 of their last 17 home Europa League matches
Expert verdict
Excluding qualifiers, Celtic have never won on the road in the Europa League in 13 attempts and that could spell trouble for the Scottish champions despite the Bhoys travelling to Russia with a fully deserved 1-0 first-leg advantage. Zenit should improve for the run after returning from their winter break at Parkhead.
