Watford parted company with head coach Nigel Pearson on Sunday in a dramatic split ahead of their final push to avoid Premier League relegation.

Watford face huge tests against Manchester City and Arsenal in their final two games as they seek to hold onto their Premier League status.

Pearson, during his spell as manager of Leicester, won promotion to the Premier League with the Foxes in 2014 but after keeping them in the division in the 2014-15 season, he was replaced by Claudio Ranieri.

Former Leicester City boss Claude Puel is one of the candidates being lined up by Watford to take over at the club at the end of the season.

Pearson's replacement will be Watford's fourth manager this season, after Javi Gracia, Quique Sanchez-Flores and Pearson himself.

Back-to-back wins over Norwich and Newcastle gave Watford breathing space over the bottom three, but Watford lost 3-1 at relegation rival West Ham on Friday, conceding three goals in the first half.

We've missed an opportunity.

The Hornets are now 17th on the table with 34 points after 36 league appearances - just three points better than 18th place Bournemouth.

A statement from the Vicarage Road club said: "Watford FC confirms that Nigel Pearson has left the club with immediate effect".

The surprise move saw Watford announce internal promotions with Hayden Mullins taking charge for the remaining games, assisted by Graham Stack.
