Everton are 12th in the table and Watford are 14th, with a point separating the two, even though Liverpool Blues have played one game less their opponents. Both teams are coming on the back of consecutive defeats and there is nothing left to play for other than pride.

Form Guide

Watford have now lost 4 matches in a row and are without a win in their last 5 matches. They also failed to score in 4 of those matches and just one goal scored during the time and conceded 8 in return.

The Hornets are without a win in their last 4 home games, with their last two being defeats and the previous two are 0-0 draws. Their home record in the last 7 matches read 1 win, 2 draws and 4 defeats.

Everton are pretty strong away from home and lost just 2 matches from their 14 matches so far this season. The second of those defeat was against Manchester United last weekend. Prior to that defeat Everton have scored 3 goals each in their last 3 away games.

The Goodison Park side are on a 3 match losing streak in the league and lost 4 of their last 5 matches, with 3 of those 4 defeats coming at their home ground.

Watford: Team News

Tommie Hoban and Joel Eskrand are long term absentees for Watford and Quique Sanchez Florez has no other players missing through injury or suspension.

Changes are expected after the 4-0 humbling at the Emirates in the weekend and Miguel Britos could come at the center of defense replacing Sebastian Prodl, while Adlène Guédioura could replace Almen Abdi in midfield.

Watford: Expected Starting Eleven (4-4-2)

Gomes – Nyom, Cathcart, Britos, Ake – Suarez, Watson, Capoue, Guédioura – Ighalo, Deeney.

Everton: Team News

Tony Hibbert, Tyias Browning and Leon Osman are the players on long term injury list for The Toffees, while Steven Pienaar has returned to full training.

Gareth Barry returns from suspension and could walk straight into the starting lineup to partner James McCarthy at the heart of the midfield. Gerard Deulofeu could miss out as Tom Cleverley moves up the field to a familiar left winger position.

Everton: Expected Starting Eleven (4-2-3-1)

Robles – Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Baines – McCarthy, Barry – Cleverly, Barkely, Lennon – Lukaku.

Watford vs Everton: Head-to-Head Stats

  • Everton on a 7 match unbeaten run against Watford and won in 6 of those 7 meetings.
  • Watford’s last win against Everton came at their home in March 1987, which also means Watford have lost all of their last 3 home matches against Everton and each of them have seen over 2.5 goals.
  • The reverse fixture of this season’s Premier League clash end in a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

Watford vs Everton: Prediction

Watford have now lost four matches in a row and they have struggled to find goals lately. Even though they are on the bottom half of the table, they are currently free from any threat of relegation.

Everton are a strong side away from home and they will be keen to bounce back from the narrow defeat suffered at Old Trafford. Four wins in last five away matches and the Goodison Park Blues will be out there to make it 5 in 6.

A win for Everton is my prediction and is very likely that Watford fail to score a goal in this match.
