Everton turned in an impressive second half against Manchester United last week to salvage a point from a tough matchup. However, they also lost Yannick Bolaise for the season with a ligament tear and saw Seamus Coleman exit the game early following a clatter with Zlatan Ibrahimovic that left the fullback woozy.
This Saturday, the Toffees travel to face Watford, a team that has dropped their last pair of games (Stoke City, West Brom) but always feels dangerous with those two strikers Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo threatening to score.
Last year, these two teams played a couple of draws. First, a 2-2 tie at Goodison Park to open the Premier League season in August. And then a 1-1 scoreline in April. Even now, very little separates the two clubs. Watford is 11th in the league with 18 points and Everton is just above them in 8th with 20 points.
