FT: West Ham 3-1 Watford

That's all from us here, folks. But follow the rest of the Premier League action on this link 

FULL-TIME

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Well, that was an eventful game!

Three penalties, a red card, four goals. A West Ham victory!

RED CARD

West Ham 3-1 Watford

It's all kicking off here. Nordin Amrabat receives his second yellow of the game for a sliding tackle. 

Off he goes in injury time. It's not been Watford's night, really.

SAVED!

PENALTY

West Ham 3-1 Watford

A THIRD penalty of the game...this time it goes to Watford!

Angelo Ogbonna fells Sebastian Prodl in the area. It seems a little harsh.

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Free kick for West Ham about 25-yards out. Dimitri Payet is lining it up. 

It bends right across the line of players and comes to nothing for the hosts.

But Victor Moses comes racing into the box, with the ball seemingly stuck to his feet, and just pokes wide.

West Ham aren't settling for three!

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Andy Carroll gets a standing ovation as he's replaced by Emmanuel Emenike.

The England boy done good here tonight. 

West Ham 3-1 Watford

You sense there's still more goals to come in the last 10 minutes.

Manuel Lanzini has so much room as he strides forward into the penalty area. The West Ham midfielder dinks the ball and it looks like it bobbles before going over the bar.

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 3-1 Watford

A brilliant save from Heurelho Gomes! 

The Watford keeper stands tall and strong and powers away Victor Moses' close-range effort. 

That must have stung his hands a bit...

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Another little trip from Jose Holebas, this time on Victor Moses, sees West Ham earn a free-kick out wide. 

Dimitri Payet aims for Andy Carroll's head but he can't get to it.

Payet tries to drive the ball across the box again but it's cleared.

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Iketchi Anya is causing some trouble for West Ham.

The Watford substitute finds himself unmarked on the left and he lets fly, but there's no one to meet his cross. 

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Andy Carroll continues to make a menace of himself up front. The West Ham striker rushes forward and tries to muscle past two Watford defenders but he fails to make the breakthrough. 

Hammers goalkeeper Adrian is sent into action now, as Ikechi Anya attempts to latch onto a speculative ball in the box. 

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Big Troy Deeney is now on for the visitors. 

West Ham also make a change - Diafra Sakho is off, and Victor Moses is on. Sakho looked really bright for the Hammers tonight. 

West Ham 3-1 Watford

West Ham are still on the prowl. They want another goal. 

Mark Noble tries to feed an on-rushing Dimitri Payet, but Juan Paredes gets his body in the way. 

A third yellow card for Watford now, as Nordin Amrabat brings down Michail Antonio. 

YELLOW CARD

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Watford midfielder Mario Suarez is cautioned for a foul on Manuel Lanzini. 

And it looks like Troy Deeney is warming up for the visitors.  

West Ham 3-1 Watford

The tempo has died down a bit now. 

Both managers wait nervously on the edge of their technical areas. When I say the edge, they're actually loitering well over the line.

Naughty. 

West Ham 3-1 Watford

Two quick corners for West Ham shows they're still hungry for goals. 

Winston Reid tries to volley past Heurelho Gomes but it goes wide. Another corner. 

Andy Carroll, who's recovered from his knock, gets his head on it but it's saved.

Now Watford go on the break and Steven Berghuis has a go from distance. It goes wide. 

End to end at the moment!

GOAL - Sebastian Prodl

West Ham 3-1 Watford

A beauty from the big Watford defender! 

Sebastian Prodl hooks the ball home from inside the area after a Steve Berghuis free-kick.

Do we have a comeback on our hands?

West Ham 3-0 Watford

Dun..dun...dunnnnnnnn. Cue Dramatic music (in my head, at least) as Andy Carroll goes down injured for West Ham.

A momentary scare, it seems, as the big man is up and about again. 

West Ham 3-0 Watford

Nordid Amrabat is twisting, turning, pirouetting and dancing - basically trying to do anything to get past the West Ham defence - but it's just not working for the lone Watford forward.

West Ham 3-0 Watford

Four penalties in 135 minutes @WatfordFC what on earth is going on? #bbcfootball

Yep, two against West Brom (both saved) and two tonight. Madness!

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 3-0 Watford

All hands on deck for Watford now. 

A double substitution sees Ikechi Anya & Steven Berghuis on for Adlene Guedioura & Jurado, who's probably been the visitors' best player.

GOAL - Mark Noble

West Ham 3-0 Watford

Another one for the Hammers captain! Straight down the middle. 

It was a silly one to concede for Almen Abdi. He tugged Michail Antonio's shirt. 

And what we've failed to tell you was Abdi missed a glorious chance up the other end just before giving away the spot-kick. 

He's had a tough few minutes, has the Watford wide man. 

West Ham celebrate

PENALTY

West Ham 2-0 Watford

West Ham love a penalty at the moment...

Michail Antonio is brought down by Almen Abdi.

West Ham 2-0 Watford

Watford continue to play a nice-looking possession game but they're not doing much with it. 

On the flipside, West Ham look great on the attack.

Manuel Lanzini takes on three defenders and is eventually scuppered inside the box and the Watford defence clear the danger. 

Sebastian Prodl is now looking in a bit of pain, so we could see a change for the visitors. 

KICK-OFF

West Ham 2-0 Watford

We're off and OH MY...we nearly have an early goal!

A long ball forward falls to Diafra Sakho and he tries to turn the ball home but it trickles out. Great start for West Ham. 

Wakey, wakey Watford.

HT: West Ham 2-0 Watford

The players are meandering back out for the second half.

Some interest possession stats to show you from the first half. Watford hold the numbers...

So Andy Carroll has six in six for West Ham. Should he be in the England squad?

#bbcfootball at #euro2016 take Kane, Vardy, Sturridge & Carroll. All have goals, all are different & can play solo or in a pair!

Should Andy Carroll go to Euro 2016?

Former England and Everton midfielder Peter Reid on BBC Radio 5 live: "England are in a good position with attacking players. I know he is a different option but they are going to take Wayne Rooney, Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and Danny Welbeck - I'd go with that."

Four more years

Good news, Alan Shearer fans. The Geordie rascal is staying with Match of the Day. 

The former England captain is to remain as a pundit after signing a new deal until 2020. 

He said: "I'm loving my broadcasting work with the BBC and I'm excited to continue my role working across its wide range of football coverage."

'West Ham are cruising'

West Ham 2-0 Watford

Leicester keeper Mark Schwarzer on BBC Radio 5 live: "My first impression was that it was definitely a penalty. He was all over him and the referee was right to give a penalty.

"It was a very good penalty by Mark Noble. West Ham are cruising and should be up by more. Watford have been pretty disappointing and are definitely looking forward to the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend."

HALF-TIME

West Ham 2-0 Watford

That's 45 minutes up. A very decent half for the hosts. 

CLOSE!

So close to being three! Manuel Lanzini puts his side-footed effort just wide.

West Ham firmly in control now.

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-0 Watford

Very nearly a second for West Ham. 

Diafra Sakho is supplied by Andy Carroll and he tries to stroke to ball home from inside the area, but Heurelho Gomes manages to get a hand to it.

Good job, as Chiek Kouyate was loitering as well. 

West Ham 1-0 Watford

Almen Abdi strides forward for Watford before Michail Antonio makes an impressive tackle to clear the danger.

And there's a lovely, lovely moment as the entire stadium rise to their feet and clap in remembrance of former Hammer Dylan Tombides, who passed away two years ago. 

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-0 Watford

Dimitri Payet is provided with a beautiful ball from Andy Carroll - it arches from one side of the pitch to the other.

Payet tries to lash home with some power, but his effort goes over. 

West Ham 1-0 Watford

Adlene Guedioura swipes the ball across the box from the right but he can't find any Watford team mates. 

Nordin Amrabat then has a go from 25 yards out but his low drive is held by West Ham keeper Adrian.
