Watford vs Everton match preview

Watford host Everton at Vicarage Road on Saturday at 5:30pm.

Watford are looking to pick themselves back up having been on the end of a 2-0 loss at the hands of West Ham at the London Stadium.

The defeat came off the back of a thumping 4-1 win over Chelsea the week prior – a display in which new signing Gerard Deulofeu made quite a first impression.

Deulofeu looks to be a real shrewd acquisition from Watford and could play a crucial part in helping them secure the points against his former side this Saturday.

Everton, meanwhile, are looking up as they go in search of European football following a lacklustre start to the season.

This season, as low as seventh place could gain entry into next season’s Europa League and with Everton just two points off, Saturday’s fixtures takes on an extra incentive.

Back in November, the Toffees edged Watford 3-2 in a thrilling encounter on Merseyside, courtesy of a 91st-minute penalty from Leighton Baines.

Premier League focus: Deulofeu the danger man

On Saturday, Deulofeu will be squaring up against his former side Everton as he looks to impress on his second loan spell in the Premier League.

The Spaniard made a resounding start to life at Vicarage Road having had a hand in two of Watford’s four goals against defending champions, Chelsea three weeks ago.

The 23-year-old, on loan from Barcelona, enjoyed a strong spell in England on Meyerside, only for a lack of consistency preventing him from being a huge success.

Deulofeu, for a while now, has been dubbed as one of Europe’s most promising, young talents and in flashes, he has demonstrated exactly why he has so many fans, only problem being; he hasn’t done so enough.

The winger will be desperate to finally fulfil his potential this time around, also adding consistency to his game, and is likely to be one of the men Everton’s back-line will need to keep close quarters on this Saturday.
