Watford Prediction

Watford occupy 8th place in the Premier League but four points adrift of 7th placed Wolves who have emerged as the ‘best of the rest’ outside the ‘Big Six’, but nevertheless, Watford find themselves in a much more comfortable position this season under manager Javi Gracia than that of when Silva was in charge.

The hosts head into this clash against a beleaguered 9th placed Everton having suffered just one defeat from their last six matches overall in the top flight which was a 2-1 loss away at 3rd placed Tottenham, but a 2-1 win away at Crystal Palace along with draws against Newcastle United, Bournemouth, Burnley and Brighton steadied the ship after a worrying slump in form.

Prior to this improved set of results, Watford had managed just two wins from their previous nine league matches, a run that also included five defeats – so Gracia has certainly tightened things up, but he’ll be keen to further improve Watford’s home record of 5-2-5 16/18 here.

 

Key-Facts – Watford v Everton

  • Watford have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches overall in the Premier League
  • Everton have lost 5 of their last 7 matches overall
  • Everton have lost 5 of their last 8 away matches

 

Everton Prediction

Onto Everton, and the murmers of discontent are once again making themselves heard on merseyside as the visitors continue to struggle to find league wins, and indeed, any sort of consistency under former Watford manager, Marco Silva.

Everton have lost five of their last seven matches overall in the top flight with recent losses to Southampton, Wolves and Manchester City adding fuel to the fire and increasing the pressure upon Silva as he struggles to make his mark at Goodison Park.

Even recent wins against Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town have failed to appease the detractors, while Everton’s away record is also below expectations with stats of 3-3-6 15/17, which includes five defeats from their last eight away matches.

In addition, Everton have kept just two clean sheets on their travels all season, and their metal will be tested against a robust Watford outfit at Vicarage Road I fancy.

Betting Tips Verdict

Watford will be on the front foot against Everton today as the hosts will sniff blood and the chance to add to their points tally. Defeat for Everton here could result in an awkward situation for Silva.
