Check out the best and the worst Hammers from the draw at Vicarage Road
DARREN RANDOLPH 6
Only had the penalty to save and got nowhere near that, alsodwelt on the ball for too long at times and almost cost them a goal.
CHEIKHOU KOUYATE 6
Gave away the early goal for the second game running, this time conceding a penalty and was out of position more than once. Improved in the second half both in defence and attack and should have had a penalty.
WINSTON REID 6
Not one of his best games and looked strangely hesitant at times. Unlike him and hopefully only a blip.
JOSE FONTE 7
Had a great chance at the other end and otherwise defended well under pressure from the Watford front line. Will be happy with his performance.
AARON CRESSWELL 8
Back to his best form. He defended stoutly, but it was going forward where he had most effect with some superb, dangerous crosses which should have led to a couple of goals.
MARK NOBLE 6
Tough game for the skipper who was turned too often by the Watford midfield and gave the ball away. Kept battling right to the end though as any skipper should.
PEDRO OBIANG 8
While there was panic in the West Ham ranks in that first 20 minutes, it was Obiang who held things together. Won the ball with good tackling and passed the ball with precision.
SOFIANE FEGHOULI 7
Had his moments and certainly didn’t disappear when things were not going well. Lost the ball in the tackle too often, but came through that to provide a good attacking option.
ROBERT SNODGRASS 6
Not his best game so far by any means. Had two good chances which he squandered and his set-pieces were a little off before he was replaced just after the hour.
MANUEL LANZINI 8* (man of the match)
Not in the match early on, but as the game wore on, he became more and more important, prompting the attacks and setting up the equalising goal.
MICHAIL ANTONIO 8
Never stopped running and holding off defenders, he was a nuisance for most of the afternoon and set up the goal by hitting both posts and teeing up Ayew. Harshly booked for a second time on appeal by the Watford players.
ANDRE AYEW 7 (for Snodgrass, 65)
Came on and made a real difference as he added more firepower up front alongside Antonio. He was there for the vital rebound to score his second goal for the club.
