Watford move up to eighth place with a 2-0 victory as Moyes's first match in charge of the Hammers ends in defeat

David Moyes's first match in charge of West Ham United ended in defeat as Will Hughes and Richarlison gave Watford a 2-0 victory at Vicarage Road.

Hughes scored with his first Premier League shot to put Watford ahead on 11 minutes while Hornets goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes denied Cheikhou Kouyate and then produced a superb double save to thwart Marko Arnautovic.

Kouyate fired over at the start of the second half but Watford doubled their lead on 64 minutes when Richarlison finished a counter-attack.

The visitors went close to pulling a goal back but Manuel Lanzini's shot was cleared off the line by Christian Kabasele as Watford ended a run of three straight defeats.

The Hornets move up to eighth place while Moyes's side remain in the bottom three with nine points from their first 12 matches.
