A GOAL IN EACH HALF from Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic handed West Ham United three priceless Premier League points as Watford were beaten in a well contested, but often disjointed encounter at the London Stadium.

Signing more players like Marko Arnautovic would be a good start after the talismanic Austrian marked his return to fitness with a man-of-the-match performance that handed David Moyes' side a first win in five to move them five points clear of the Premier League relegation zone and level with their opponents.

Sullivan said: "I want to speak directly to our supporters and say how important it is that we all pull together during these times".

Arnautovic then secured all three points for the home side late on in the match, when he was quickest to react to an attempted clearance inside the six-yard box.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan said before the game that he would be stepping away from transfers following the club's failure to strengthen in the January window. And we've had a few too many downs and not enough ups.

The co-Chairman was addressing the West Ham faithful in a video to reassure supporters more was being done to deliver success. "We've got a very good team when everybody's fit".

"I know the fans are not happy and that makes me unhappy. I'm sure, I'm confident next time we can do better". The harder you work, the better the results.

"Myself and David Gold, we watch every game home and away". We will not be signing a player that the manager hasn't seen play, and we hope we will spend our money better. We want to be there because we love the club, we care, we are fans. We didn't win much and I thought Watford were first to most things.
