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.

Leicester have navigated consecutive penalty shootouts to book their place in the last eight of the League Cup but their luck looks set to run out against Manchester City. Pep Guardiola sent out strong sides in League Cup defeats of Fulham (2-0) and Oxford United (3-0) and City should ease through.
