Watford are confident that the Premier League clash against West Ham United will take place this afternoon.

The Daily Mail has reported that the Vicarage Road showdown has got the green light as things stand.

That is despite numerous positive tests and Claudio Ranieri struggling ahead of the 3 pm kick-off time.

This is why the Premier League meeting was needed, with clarity finally being shed for all 20 clubs regarding postponements.

No one has seen more games cancelled than Watford it seems in the last month, and they look to be coming out of the other end.

It was confirmed that if you have 13 senior players including a goalkeeper, the game can go ahead with the help of academy players to fill the squad.

We may see numerous academy players on the home bench in the London derby, and that is something we may need to take advantage of.

Must win.

This is a must-win for the Irons, but we have issues of our own.

Declan Rice will be sitting out through suspension, meaning the likes of Mark Noble are going to need to stand up and be counted.

Even with COVID issues, Watford are said to be confident of putting a side together, something that makes it sound as though it could be makeshift.

With defeats against the likes of Southampton recently, three points here could be a real turning point heading into the January window.
