For many this season Watford FC have been one of the season's surprise packages in the Premier League, barring the obvious in Leicester City, but not for Everton fans. The reverse fixture to Saturday's was the earliest of indications that Quique Sanchez Flores' side would at the very least survive relegation. The Hornets twice took the lead at Goodison Park and the Toffees did well take a point from the first game of the season.

Going into the game at Vicarage Road, Everton are nearly at full strength - excluding the long term knee injuries of Tyias Browning and Tony Hibbert - Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar are both being described as doubtful for Saturday's clash with 'knocks'. However the Blues do have Gareth Barry returning to the squad following the completion of his suspension for two yellow cards in the Chelsea win.

As for our hosts, their only fitness concern is Valon Behrami as he is suffering from an illness but is expected to be fit for tomorrow.
