Both these sides look to have one eye on their summer holidays with Everton’s defeat at Swansea their third game without scoring. Watford, meanwhile, lost their fourth game in five, during which time they netted just once and as a result have slipped from a respectable 10th to 15th.
The Toffees only home game in this little spell was against champions-elect Chelsea, and their record prior to this at Goodison was impressive. They’d won eight on the trot, leading at half-time in six, conceding in just three, while netting 29 times. Romelu Lukaku was responsible for 13 of these and the big Belgian has been a bit of a flat-track bully this term with 21 of his 24 goals coming against sides below Everton in the table. He bagged a brace against the Hornets in the reverse fixture and is available at 3.0 to do so again.
Watford are seriously suffering from the away day blues. They’ve lost 10 of their last 12, firing a blank in each of their last five and with a trip to Chelsea still to come, don’t look like improving on this. Only the current bottom-three have scored fewer goals than Walter Mazzarri’s men this term, and so the Everton win to nil stands out at 2.38.
