Everton Preview – Can the Toffees get back to winning ways?

Everton have made a solid enough start under Rafa Benitez. The former Liverpool manager has guided the Toffees to four wins from eight Premier League games, drawing two and losing two of the other four.

After an excellent 1-1 draw at Old Trafford before the international break, the Merseysiders returned to action last weekend with a disappointing home reverse to West Ham United. Angelo Ogbonna netted the only goal of the game at Goodison.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1014 GMT, Friday 22 October)

Everton have won half of their eight league fixtures thus far, seeing off Southampton, Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley and Norwich City. Benitez’s boys will be hoping to get back on track with a fifth Premier League victory this weekend. They are the clear favourites with the bookies at 3/5.

Watford Preview – Hornets to suffer fourth reverse in five?

Watford have had a turbulent time on and off the field this season. Xisco Munoz was relieved of his duties after a recent 1-0 loss at Leeds United, with the experienced Claudio Ranieri taking over.

Ranieri’s reign at Vicarage Road got off to the worst possible start as Watford were thumped at home by a rampant Liverpool side. Jurgen Klopp’s men ran riot, with Roberto Firmino (3), Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on target in a 5-0 Reds win.

Everton vs Watford Betting Advice

These two teams met three times in the 2019-20 season, with the Toffees winning all three. In the Premier League meeting at Goodison Park, an early Bernard goal gave Everton a 1-0 win. A Yerry Mina brace and a Theo Walcott effort then gave the Merseyside outfit a 3-2 win in Hertfordshire in the reverse league game. Everton also beat Watford in the EFL Cup.

Watford’s last success in this fixture was a 1-0 home league win back in February 2019. That remains their only victory over Everton in five.


Key Facts – Everton vs Watford Betting Tip

  • Everton have won half of their eight league fixtures this term
  • Ranieri’s first game at Watford ended in a 5-0 home reverse

Everton were not at their best against West Ham and were punished in front of their home supporters last week. However, we fancy Benitez’s troops to get back to winning ways at Goodison on Saturday. Check out the decent odds of 11/4 for the home win and both teams to score.

Andros Townsend has been a player reborn this season. Townsend and Benitez worked well with each other at Newcastle United, and the midfielder switched to Goodison from Crystal Palace shortly after Rafa took the hotseat. The ex-England international has hit the ground running, already scoring five times for the Toffees. The 30-year-old is available at 2/1 to score anytime here.
