Everton vs Watford Prediction
The Toffees had their hearts broken earlier in the weekend on the road after an own goal from Lucas Digne in stoppage time proved to be just enough for Brighton to walk away with all three points. Everton have so far failed to pick up the win in all of their outings in the Premier League. And are currently boasting the second-worst away record in the first division as well.
Which is why the Everton faithful will be relieved to be hosting the clash this week. The home side have admitted defeat just twice so far on home soil, one of which, to their defense, was against the mighty Manchester City.
Watford, on the other hand, have hardly shown any conviction in their campaign. The away side are without a win in their last five outings on the trot as well and have been at the losing end in three of those five.
It is also worth mentioning that Watford have not been faring any better in their previous visits to Goodison Park. They have failed to come away with the win in each of their last seven trips here. Taking into account the solid run of form at hand for Everton at home, Watford’s chances of coming out on top are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, the hosts have not been keen on racking up the goals tally at home, and have scored no more than a goal or two at the most in four of their last five games here. The away side have hardly posed a threat in the final third too, and have found the back of the net just twice in their previous five trips on the road.
With their most recent head to head meeting here also featuring fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, expect a low scoring affair by all means.
