Watford’s Premier League season continued with a defeat against West Ham at Upton Park on Wednesday.

A match of three penalties saw West Ham’s Adrian the one to save any on this occasion as Watford (we also finished with 10-men as Nordin Amrabat was sent off in injury-time) lost three-one.

Andy Carroll put West Ham ahead early on with Jose Holebas’ foul on Diafra Sakho giving the Hammers a chance to double the lead from the spot on half time, which Mark Noble took.

When Almen Abdi brought down Michail Antonio early in the second half West Ham had another penalty, again taken by Noble and scored to leave them three-up with less than an hour played.

Sebastian Prodl pulled one back with Troy Deeney having a chance to put on some late pressure but his spot kick was saved by West Ham ‘keeper Adrian.

Winger Nordin Amrabat picked up his second yellow card in the third-minute of injury-time with focus now turning completely to Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace at Wembley.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Tuesday 19th April 2016
Newcastle 1-1 Man City

Wednesday 20th April
West Ham 3-1 Watford
Liverpool 4-0 Everton
Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace

This game is still to be played.

Thursday 21st April 2016
Arsenal v West Brom

Newcastle and Manchester City (one-one) shared the points, which (whilst not to be turned away) wasn’t as much as either side wanted really, Newcastle to stay up and Man City to make sure of a Champions League finish.

All four of the upcoming FA Cup semi-finalists were in action, none that successful!

Jurgen Klopp’s first Merseyside derby saw his Liverpool (four-nil) side see off Everton, who continue to struggle with this hardly ideal preparation for the semi-final against Manchester United (two-one), who beat Crystal Palace to keep alive hopes of a Champions League place.

Palace are still in a bit of trouble but they should be fine with the semi opponent they’ll face Watford (three-one) beaten at West Ham, with the Hammers continuing to push hard for a Europa League spot.
