Watch: Declan Rice screamer helps West Ham edge toward safety

West Ham are on the verge of securing another season in the Premier League after a 3-1 win over relegation rivals Watford.

Michail Antonio continued his scoring run by putting the Hammers in front in the sixth minute at the London Stadium with Tomas Soucek doubling their lead four minutes later.

That lead stretched to 3-0 thanks to Declan Rice's stunning strike ten minutes before half-time.

Troy Deeney pulled a goal back for the Hornets early in the second-half but West Ham recorded a commanding victory with takes David Moyes' side six points clear of the bottom three with two games remaining.

"We can't say we're safe yet," Former Ireland midfielder Rice insisted on Sky Sports after the game. "It's not mathematically done.

"Aston Villa and Bournemouth have put in two good performances, Villa should have won at Everton and Bournemouth nearly got a result at Man City.

"It's not over until the final day and we have to keep fighting."

Watford meanwhile remain in trouble - just three points above the drop zone. Next up for the Hornets is the visit of Manchester City to Vicarage Road next Thursday.

Earlier, Leeds' promotion to the Premier League was confirmed after West Brom lost 2-1 to Huddersfield in the Championship.
