Recommended Bets

Watford looks like a beaten team before they step onto the pitch lately and are the only Premier League side with more than four straight losses at present; current standing at six defeats on the bounce. Everton should also be more motivated to win with their survival in their own hands once again. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Watford 0 – 1 Everton and is available at odds of 7.5/1.

Match preview

Watford welcomes Everton to Vicarage Road on Wednesday for this Premier League match. The Blues have the upper hand in the head-to-head, with eight wins to Watford’s four, from their fifteen encounters in the Premier League. However, they were hammered 2-5 in the reverse fixture back in October.

Watford’s defeat at Palace coupled with Everton’s victory in Leicester confirmed the Hornet’s relegation to the Championship. While that was bad enough, the Hornets’ fans were furious with Roy Hodgson (pictured below) who walked around in front of the Crystal Palace fans to applaud them but failed to acknowledge the travelling Watford fans in the away end. When asked about the reason behind this, he merely stated they were “too far away, unfortunately”.

Watford fans were already disappointed at performances since he took the reigns at the club. The club have picked up just eight points in fifteen games since his appointment on 25th January; an average of 0.53 points-per-game which would work out as just 20 points over a 38 game campaign.

When you add to this the resentment they have for Hodgson and the desire to let him know just how disappointed they are, this could all add up to a very hostile atmosphere at Vicarage Road on Wednesday evening. A lethargic start or an early Everton goal could see the fans turning on the players and managing to make an already difficult game an even bigger challenge.

In contrast, Everton fans will feel their backing of Frank Lampard despite an awful start to his Everton career is now vindicated. Only Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal have picked up more points than their ten over the last five games. This has seen them climb out of the relegation zone and above both Leeds and Burnley as we come into the final corner of the race.

With Brentford, Crystal Palace and Arsenal to come, this may be their best chance to get another three points on the board from their remaining games. Leeds have Chelsea, Brighton and Brentford to come while Burnley have Spurs, Villa and Newcastle United. They will all start as underdogs in those games but you feel whichever side fails to pick up some points against the odds in their games will be the side to get relegated.

Having beaten Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester in recent weeks, Everton will fancy their chances against all of their remaining opponents.

Richarlison First Goalscorer. – In Abdoulaye Doucouré and Richarlison (pictured above), two former Hornets will likely start for Everton on Wednesday evening. Richarlison was the most expensive of the two at £35.5m and has three goals in six games against his former club since joining the Toffees in July 2018. This includes his goal at Goodison Park against them earlier this season to put Everton ahead but ended as merely a consolation in a 2-5 defeat. The Brazilian international is the 5/1 favourite to score the game’s opener on Wednesday. Or 2.3/1 to bag another goal at any time during the game against the club that brought him to British football.

Watford team news

The Hornets added to their growing list of unavailable players with their 1-0 defeat at Palace at the weekend. Tom Cleverley last just 52 minutes before being withdrawn. Samir then followed fifteen minutes from time, also with a knock. While it neither injury looks too serious, it rules them out for this match. Ken Sema and William Troost-Ekong, who replaced them from the bench, look set to replace them in the starting eleven. Hassane Kamara will also miss the match due to suspension after being sent off for repeated fouling.

Juan Camilo (or Cucho) Hernandez remains ruled out due to a hamstring injury against Leeds. The Colombian forward is back in training but this match will come too soon in his recovery for him. Nicolas Nkoulou has been missing from the last two matchday squads suggesting he returned too soon from the hamstring problem that has seen him make only three league appearances this season for the club. Joao Pedro is also ruled out with a groin injury while Juraj Kucka and Imran Louza are both out with knee injuries.

The three points at the weekend came at a cost for the Toffees. Yerry Mina (pictured above) lasted just eighteen minutes before being removed due to a calf problem. Michael Keane replaced him and will likely start here rather than risk Mina. Vitaliy Mykolenko, who scored his first goal for the club to open the scoring at Leicester, was also withdrawn due to injury. Frank Lampard is hopeful it was just a bad case of cramp but Jonjoe Kenny looks set to replace him here rather than risk him.

Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson remain on the long term injury list and won’t be involved for the remainder of this season due to ACL and ankle injuries respectively. Ben Godfrey has also been out for the last few weeks but is expected to return to training after the trip to Watford. Donny van de Beek is likewise nearing a return from the groin problem troubling him lately. He faces a fitness test to be on the bench here.
