WHU Vs WAT Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: The winners end up sealing their survival this season in one of the most crucial battles in the relegation scrape.
There couldn’t have been a more befitting way to bring down the curtains on gameweek 36 in the Premier League. For West Ham and Watford, their survival in the marquee league could all bow down to today’s faceoff with the winner all but affirming itself of a spot in the ensuing season as well.
Having won their previous encounters to give their chances of escaping a massive boost in the arm, today’s opponents make an advent into the encounter with momentum in their ranks. Adjacent to each other in 16th and 17th position, either side is currently three points clear of the bottom three with the barest of goal differences seeing West Ham sit atop of Watford.
And it’s the hosts who carry albeit a slight but a crucial edge ahead of the imminent cliff-hanger. The club has registered unbeaten results in three of its last five outings out in the middle with the most recent being a right 4-0 clobbering of Norwich City.
While West Ham are in fluent touch off late, Watford are going from strength to straight as well. The club has shown gallantry to register two wins on the bounce with the team’s fight and character on display in abundance in their 2-1 win over Newcastle United the last time around.
We are going to be in for a jaffer of a contest today, a clash which will see two sides battling for their lives spare no expense to save their season. The goals are coming in fast for the home side, a revitalisation which should see them pull off a win but the smallest of margins today.

WHU Vs WAT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
While it was Watford’s attack which ended up taking all the credits for the side’s win the last time around, Ben Foster’s contribution towards the side’s win can’t be neglected. He rendered Newcastle United’s attack redundant and obsolete with the player pacifying the slew of shots they attempted his way with ease.
WHU Vs WAT Dream11 Defenders
Two sides who have gone onto shup a calamitous 113 goals in between them owing to contentious and harrowing defending won’t be revelling us in a cleansheet today. Also, with the stakes being so colossal for either team in this, both will come hot out of the blocks with either team set to score atleast once.
It sees us not only limit our side to the three picks but also indulge in names who have an affinity for scoring as well. We begin with Kiko Femenia, a player whose assist the last time around sees him fit the bill perfectly for us today.
On the other hand, the home side will see us venture in with a duo, one made up of their fullbacks. In Ryan Frederick and Aaron Creswell, the side has two players who live galloping down the park and provided their side with unbridled support in their attacking sorites.
WHU Vs WAT Dream11 Midfielders
An assist for Ismailia Sarr the last time around now sees him having registered the 5 goals and 3 assists for Watford in his first season at the club. He’s thrived in an otherwise underwhelming attack, performances which have played a pivotal role in seeing the club scram their way out of the bottom three.
He’s going to find company is Abdoulaye Doucoure for the clash whilst West Ham on the other hand will see an entire trio being reposed faith in by us. We begin with Pablo Fornals owing to his five assists, partnering him alongside Declan Rice whose ability to clampdown on attacks has attracted interested from Chelsea.
The trivalent is rightfully wrapped up by the club’s most in touch player at moment with Jack Bowen setting the stage alight with his attacking impetuous.
WHU Vs WAT Dream11 Strikers
Not only has West Ham’s Michael Antonio gone onto score in straight matches for the club but he ended up scoring all four of the side’s goals against Norwich City to make him an instant pick for us today. Elsewhere, Troy Deeney took his tally to 8 goals after scoring the last time around to see the Watford striker complete our land for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 8 goals lead to Antonio being captained by us while Deeney is the vice-captain.
