Everton News and Form
The Toffees somehow failed to win a home game against Newcastle in midweek. They had to settle for a 1-1 draw despite totally dominating the fixture. That moved the Merseysiders onto a W5 D2 L1 record on home soil this season. The Toffees have put together a five-match unbeaten streak at Goodison Park currently. As Watford are currently sitting 11th ahead of the weekend, it still means that Everton haven’t faced a side from the current top-half of the table this season at home. Everton have scored 14 goals in their eight home fixtures this season, conceding seven. Home and away combined they have banked a clean sheet in three of their last five fixtures.
The Toffees have trended with being level at half time in six of their eight home games this season (W1 D1). Seven times actually, looking at all of their fixtures (home and away), they have been at 0-0 at half time. Each to their last four league games have gone under 2.5 goals. 71% of the goals Everton have conceded at home this season have been in the first half of games. As a positive, Everton have scored in each and every home game played this season and have opened the scoring in all but three at Goodison Park.

Watford News and Form
The Hornets were sunk in 2-1 home loss against Manchester City in midweek. That moved them on a disappointing three match losing streak in the top flight now and are going to have to start digging deep to snap out of it. Looking back a little further the Hornets have earned one point in their last five league games only. During that run of games, they have scored just the two goals. Away from home, the Hornets have tallied seven goals this season, conceding eight. In their last three fixtures away from Vicarage Road the Hornets have come up with just the one point. There has been no clean sheet in those three games.
Only one of Watford’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so that’s a big trend to consider. Each of their last six away games have gone under 2.5 goals. They have failed to bank themselves a clean sheet in any of their last five league games. Watford have played two away games this season against sides currently above them in the table. They lost both without scoring (Leicester and Arsenal). In fact, from eight games against sides currently in the top half of the table, Watford are just W2 L6. They are currently sitting two points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.
Who will win – Everton v Watford Predictions
Everton should find a way to make the most of this home fixture against a side who are out of sorts at the moment. The Toffees don’t look likely to lose. Watford’s lack of away goals are likely to prevent them winning. Home win.
