Watford 1 – Everton 0
Watford beat Everton in the ‘Marco Silva derby’ on Saturday in the Premier League.
Andre Gray came off the bench to covert a low cross from Will Hughes in the 65th minute.
Jose Holebas is banned
There was just one sour note for Watford against Everton.
Defender Jose Holebas picked up a booking against the Toffees.
That was the tenth time Holebas has been booked this season, which means the Watford assist-maker will now be banned.
Good news for QPR & Cardiff
Holebas has now picked up a two match ban for Watford.
That means he’ll miss upcoming matches against QPR in the FA Cup and against Cardiff in the Premier League.
Holebas will be in line to return to action in the Premier League on February 27 against Liverpool.
Jose Holebas vs Richarlison
Watford fans enjoyed the moment that Jose Holebas outpaced Everton’s Richarlison on Saturday at Vicarage Road.
See the social media react to Holebas’ performance against the Toffees.
Holebas was fantastic today, especially the bit where he caught, overtook and dispossessed Richarlison (£40m). #watfordfc

Thought Jose Holebas was superb today. Had Richarlison in his back pocket and coped with Walcott well when he came on. Shame that he’ll now miss the next two games after getting his 10th yellow of the season. #WatfordFC

Today was a lovely reminder of why £45m was an unreal deal for Richarlison. The moaning, the diving, the inconsistency, the petulance, the heavy touches. A 34 year old Jose Holebas showed him up for what he really is.
