Watford 1 – West Ham 1
Troy Deeney fired the Hornets in front in the first half from the penalty spot, while Andre Ayew marked his return to the Hammers first team with the equaliser after the break.
Ayew was in the right place to convert a rebound after Michail Antonio hit both Watford posts with a shot, and Antonio, arguably West Ham’s stand out player, finished the match early after he was sent off.
Chelsea are winners
With four minutes to go, Antonio collected a second yellow card for a deliberate handball.
The Irons could have had little complaints about the decision; it was bloody stupid from the West Ham star.

That dismissal means Antonio will now serve a one match ban, which mean he’ll miss the match at home to Chelsea on March 6.
It’s all falling into place for Antonio Conte’s Chelsea at the moment.
Antonio red card. Misses Chelsea game.

Michail Antonio will miss the match against Chelsea next week due to suspension. #CFC
