Ayew rescues point for West Ham 

Watford missed the chance to do the double over West Ham for the first time as Andre Ayew’s second-half strike secured a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.

Ghana international Ayew struck on 73 minutes to notch his first goal since Boxing Day, and only his second goal for the Hammers, who clung on for a point after Michail Antonio’s dismissal for two bookable offences four minutes from time.

Troy Deeney’s third-minute penalty, his eighth goal of the season, had given Watford a deserved half-time lead but an assured first-half display was overshadowed by a serious injury to Mauro Zarate, who was taken to hospital for scans on his knee.
