West Ham V Watford Match Preview: Will Marko Arnautovic Be Back This Weekend?

West Ham were reportedly willing to listen to offers in January for the Mexican striker but an injury to Andy Carroll and the sale of Diafra Sakho to Rennes meant that Chicharito would stay at the East London club in the hope of guiding them to relegation safety. "I think we can do better".

But when Arnautovic, fit again after three games out injured, began to get on the ball West Ham looked a totally different team, especially to the one which surrendered so meekly at Brighton last weekend.

Not so Arnautovic. He's the type of player who frustrates and pleases, but not always on the same day.

Moyes' future at West Ham has been cast into doubt this week, but his side controlled the first half, with Hernandez seeing a goal disallowed due to a tight offside call.

"When he came in with it yesterday I said, "That looks great Marko, it really suits you", so he went away happy", added Moyes.

"We haven't had the success we would like".

Watford dominated for long spells in the second half but without creating any clear-cut chances, and Arnautovic ended the contest 12 minutes from time with a close-range finish.

"We want more ups than downs".

"We have got him here to play. We believe more in our work, and it is better for us but we know if we don't work and don't run we will not win".

He said: "I'm going to delegate the whole thing to a huge analysis and scouting system with a new head of recruitment".

Evra, 36, was banned by UEFA from all European club competition until the end of the season and had his contract terminated by Marseille after he kicked at a supporter in November.

He grabbed his third goal in four games yesterday just a few weeks after Hammers waned him out and even he had his agent working over-time to find an escape route. His level of professionalism is as good as anybody's and hopefully we can get him ready as quick as we possibly can. West Ham's co-owner used an in-house TV interview to admit to mistakes, and promise an overhaul of recruitment systems and strategy in the summer.
