Watford vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium (Watford).
Mid-table rivals Watford and Everton are set to lock horns on Saturday afternoon at Vicarage Road Stadium. Neither of two teams will enter the game in an exceptional form.
The hosts took only two points from past three league affairs against Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton. They found goals hard to come by of late having notched no more than one in last there Premier League ties. Two of these three affairs ended in goalless draws.
Everton, on the other side, ended a two-loss streak only for a moment beating the rock-bottomed Huddersfield Town 0-1 away at The John Smith’s Stadium. They quickly returned to the old habits falling 1-3 at home to Wolves last weekend.
The head coach Marco Silva, who was in charge of Watford last season, can be worried with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s defensive line.
The Toffees were too easy to break down in recent ties as they shipped eight goals in three defeats. It’s not the record to be proud of if we know the opposition involved Southampton, Millwall and Wolverhampton.
Watford vs Everton: Head-to-head
Everton were much more successful over the course of history (15 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats).
However, Watford offered a strong resistance in a 2-2 draw when teams last met each other in mid-December 2018 at Goodison.
The Hornets won two and drew one of last three home matches against the Toffees.
Watford vs Everton: Prediction
Everton have a dismal away record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats in 12 games in this term. They will come into this off the back of three losses in last four matches across competitions. Furthermore, they lost two and drew one of past three head to head games with the Hornets at Vicarage Road.
The hosts were by no means impressive of late, but we definitely see them as team closer to snatching spoils on Saturday. You can have Watford DNB (Draw No Bet) at 1.61 odds, while braver tipsters can go with the clear home win at 2.30.
