These teams are very familiar with each other having played against one another the past few years. Over the last 5 meetings, both teams have won twice and there has been one draw.
Watford got blown out in their opening game by a score of 3-0. this was against Brighton & Hove Albion, so that does not look good for their chances here.
The attack for Watford was pretty barren to say the least against Brighton. This was also a home game, so this is also strange that they were not able to generate anything. It was not like they did not have chances though, as they had 11 shots, but just 3 on target.
The defending was obviously not good as they allowed Brighton to take control of the game in the first half and never look back. An own goal started the scoring for Brighton and two second half goals sealed the deal. Now playing Everton, something has to change defensively or Everton could score three goals on them in a hurry.
Everton started their season on the road at Crystal Palace and played to a boring 0-0 draw. It could have been worse for Everton as they were shown a red card in the 76th minute and had to play a man down. Returning home should give them the confidence they need to find the back of the net after the disappointing game at Crystal Palace.
Although Everton did not score, they were easily the better side. The had 65% of possession and had 10 shots, 3 on target. This game will be all about finishing in the final third of the pitch. Watford just allowed a bunch goals in their first game, so I see Everton breaking through multiple times.
The one positive takeaway from the game with Palace was their defending. They held their opponent to just 6 shots and 2 on target. They controlled the game for the majority, never giving Crystal Palace hope of scoring. Now facing Watford, if they can keep up the same defensive effort, they will surely limit Watford even more so than Crystal Palace.
