The Toffees are in a streak of especially poor form in this poor season. They now face Watford, a team they drew 2-2 with on the opening weekend of the season back in August.

It is a matchup of the 12th- and 14th-place teams in the Premier League as Everton travel to Vicarage road to take on Watford. The two teams have quite different outlooks now when compared to their first meeting of the season back in the beginning of August.

Watford, thought to be a candidate for demotion, has played an exciting brand of football that has seen Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney team up to form a fierce-some pair on attack. The Hornets should comfortably return to England's top league next season.

Everton. Well, you know about Everton at this point. They have been a disappointment and, even if they manage to take home the FA Cup, this season is likely still a failure. Quotes from left back Leighton Baines earlier this week indicate a fracture in the dressing room. Who is to blame? It will fall on the head of manager Roberto Martinez, who may be headed back to Spain anyway.

Many of the players on the roster would seem to have European aspirations. That means playing meaningful games each week; not simply drawing out the string in mid-April. This game is, in a sense, pointless. The Toffees are in no danger of being dropped to the Championship. But they are no where near good enough to compete for much of anything. Rumors persist that Romelu Lukaku is headed out the door in the summer, and who could blame him? There is talk that Alexandre Lacazette may come in as a replacement, but it's still early.

Ah well. That's the life of a Blues supporter right now. Perhaps three points today can mask the pain for a little while at least.
