Everton vs Watford – betting tips and predictions

Everton will hope to end their ongoing terrible run when they host Watford at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Toffees are currently on a five-game losing run in all competitions, and they have picked only one point from their last four league games. In their last league game, they lost 2-0 at Leicester City, and currently find themselves in the 18th-spot with eight points.

Following the departure of Ronald Koeman, Everton have faced three successive defeats under caretaker boss David Unsworth, and we don’t expect a revival in their fortunes on Sunday.

Everton’s struggles are not limited to the league, and they lost 3-0 Lyon in Europa League on Thursday and bowed out of the competition.

Meanwhile, Watford have done well for themselves under their new manager Marco Silva this season. The Hornets have lost their last two league fixtures, but they still find themselves in the top half of the table – in the eighth spot with 15 points. In their last fixture, Watford suffered an unexpected 1-0 home defeat to Stoke City.

Last season, each side won their respective home game, and the corresponding fixture ended in a 1-0 win for the Toffees.
