West Ham will have to do without the suspended Declan Rice as they look to return to winning ways against Watford this afternoon.

A month ago, this would have been a fairly favourable fixture for David Moyes’ side, although three losses on the bounce have seriously undermined their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

It’s important to take some perspective, of course, and highlight the fact it is remarkable West Ham have been so consistently good for so long, although the fact their decline has seemingly come as a result of key injuries is hugely frustrating.

For the short trip up to Vicarage Road, Moyes will be missing Rice, too. The England midfielder’s booking during the Boxing Day loss at home to Southampton sees him suspended, depriving West Ham of yet another defensive shield.
