Arsenal, check. Liverpool, check. Man City, check. Chelsea, check. What more could Slaven possibly do to make the fans fall in love with him even further? Another win this weekend would certainly be nice.

Last Saturday was one of the best atmospheres I witnessed at Upton Park for a long time and when Carroll scored, the ground erupted.

It was another fairy tale win for us, but now we must concentrate on doing the business against a very decent Watford side, who come off of a very good win away at Stoke last weekend.

They have had a steady start to the season, sitting in 13th as we speak, which is definitely satisfactory for a newly promoted side. This will be one of the harder games we will face this season, and here is why.

Watford have shown themselves to be a very good side away from home, and a team difficult to break down when they do play at Vicarage Road. We ourselves are still unbeaten on the road, winning four out of the five we have played.

Slaven Bilic will have a headache when picking the team for Saturday, with rumours that Alex Song could be fit and ready to go, but I personally think that he should be given another week before including him in the side.

Andy Carroll came on and notched the winning goal against Chelsea, which could see him pushing for a starting place, with Mauro Zarate also having an exceptional game.

Enner Valencia is still yet to feature since returning from injury, while Antonio and Obiang are still having to wait patiently and see if they can push themselves into the starting XI.

Ginge and Tomkins have been outstanding at the back for the past two weeks whilst Ogbonna and Reid have been injured, so again it begs the question whether they will walk back into the side for Saturday as both should be fit again.

It is exciting times for us Hammers and the strength in depth we now have in the squad is immense. We are in a great position at the moment, but we must keep performing and staying up there with the big boys and really push on for our last season at the Boleyn.

Watford is not going to be a turnover, make no mistake of that. They are a tough side to break down and possess a very dangerous attacking threat when going forwards, which we will need to be aware of for the full 90 minutes.

I am sure Slaven Bilic will be highlighting the danger points in the team and look no further than the excellent partnership in Deeney and Ighalo up front. A big, strong, powerful striker partnered with a fast, tricky player is a recipe any team would love to have.

Ighalo has been their main source of goals this season, so our defence will have to be hot on our heels if we are going to keep them both quiet, but if we can, I am confident we can go on to win the game.

Former West Ham players Behrami and Diamanti are now in this Watford side, so we should know what to expect from the pair of them and exploit their weaknesses.

As for our side, this is how I think we will line up on Saturday:

I would like to think that Slaven will keep an unchanged side from the win against Chelsea as I am a strong believer in letting people keep their place if they are putting in the right performances, which the likes of Ginge and Zarate have shown.

As always I leave my prediction, so I am going to go for a 2-0 win to the Hammers!
