Everton vs Watford
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 10 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton and Watford will drop the curtain on the Matchday No 16 on Monday evening when they are set to take on each other at Goodison Park. The hosts will hope to return on the winning ways after claiming just one point in last two rounds. The opposition is ideal from their perspective as the Hornets head into this in low spirits after losing four and drawing one of past five Premier League matches.
Nonetheless, Watford’s manager Javi Gracia has nothing to say to his lads regarding they fighting spirit after Tuesday’s home clash with leaders Manchester City. The Hornets forced the defending champions to worry about a victory all up until the 90th minute following Abdoulaye Doucoure’s 85th-minute goal which pulled one back for them late in the game.
Everton vs Watford: Head-to-head
Everton have always been a tricky opposition to Watford against whom they won 15, drew 3 and lost only 4 of 22 encounters throughout the history.
The Toffees have a brutal H2H record with Watford in matches at Goodison where they won 10 and drew 1 of 11.
Each of last four head to head affairs between the two sides saw home teams snatching the spoils.
Everton vs Watford: Prediction
Watford made the weakest Premier League start in last three years in spite of winning four of opening five matches in the league. They won just 2 of last 11, though. Bouncing back from such horrific thread will be a mountain to climb for them at Goodison given both Everton’s recent home form as well as the aforementioned head to head tradition.
The Toffees won four and drew one of past five home matches in the league. They shipped just two goals in the process and they only conceded a late stoppage-time goal to lose to fierce rivals Liverpool in last weekend’s Merseyside derby.
The home win is a must-take bet at the odds of 1.72 based on everything written above. You can also try with the hosts to keep their net untouched at 2.37 odds.
