Watford News and Form

The Hornets picked up a point against Brighton last weekend. They were under heavy pressure on the south coast, but keeper Ben Foster had a great afternoon between the sticks to help them to a 0-0 draw. That was the fourth draw in six EPL matches for Watford currently (W1 D1). It hasn’t been a bad season considering they are in the top ten and seem to have a settled manager.

But at home this season against sides currently in the top half of the table, well that needs some examination. In their six home games against current top ten sides, Watford are just W1 L5 this term at Vicarage Road. So it’s not been a good return from them. Overall they have a W5 D2 L5 home return.

Watford have scored 16 home goals and have conceded 18. A high percentage of 75% of their games at Vicarage Road have gone over 2.5 goals. There has been a clean sheet for Watford in 25% of their home games this season. They have earned a clean sheet in two of their last thirteen league fixtures (home and away combined).

Of their five home wins this term, three have been with a clean sheet. The Hornets have scored 69% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures this season. Just four times they have opened the scoring at home and they have conceded in 75% of home fixtures.

Everton News and Form

Everton suffered a heavy home defeat against Wolves last weekend and were booed off. Then in midweek, they had to squeeze in an extra game, losing against Man City. It has left Everton with five losses in their last eight Premier League games (W3). Overall this season they have only managed to put together a W3 D3 L6 record on their travels.

Away from Goodison Park Everton are just W1 L3 in their last four. The win in that sequence was a 1-0 success at bottom side Huddersfield. Everton have not won at a top-ten side this season. In their run of away games, they have tallied up 15 goals this season, conceding 19. Everton will be looking for just their third away clean sheet in this season’s EPL.

In eight of their away games this season in the top flight, Everton have been level at the half time break. Six of those eight half time scores have been 0-0. They were on a positive four-match scoring streak before they failed to break Man City’s defence in midweek. Everton have conceded a heavy bulk of their away goals this season in the second half of fixtures.

Watford v Everton Predictions

Watford to win: The Hornets look the value option to back in this one as they play host to Everton. Neither of these are overly convincing, but home soil advantage may just swing it in the way of Watford.
