On Saturday the 9th of February Watford play at home against Everton in the Premier League with a kick off time of 15:00.
Watford is flying high in the table on 34 points in 8th place and is only 4 points from 7th place Wolves. Everton is only a single point behind them but has played 1 extra game so if the Toffees wins this one they will jump up above them in the table. Watford has drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 3 matches in the EPL which is not the best form. Their last match in the league was a goalless draw against Brighton and they have been struggling to find goals recently. They play away at Cardiff and they are at home against Liverpool in their next 2 games in the league.
Everton was beaten 0-2 by Manchester City in their last match and will be looking to bounce back against Watford. Their form has been extremely patchy all throughout the season with consistency missing which is costing them lots of points. They are in 9th place on 33 points so will be looking to overtake Watford by beating them over the weekend. They play away at Cardiff then are at home to Liverpool and away again at Newcastle United in their next 3 EPL games.
Prediction – Draw
Both teams have not found goals that easy to come by this season and they are very evenly matched. With Everton playing in midweek it may play a part in the second half as players get fatigued so they will need to start fast to get on top so they can attempt to contract the final third of the match. I think the Toffees will manage to get the first goal but Watford will pull it back to earn themselves a 1-1 draw.
