Looking to make an important step towards survival, Watford host Everton at the Vicarage Road in a match from the 25th round of the Premier League. Here come our English Premier League predictions for this game.
Despite of the improvement in their form, Watford are still in the relegation zone of the league, being 19th with 23 points. The good news for them is that the 17th West Ham United have the same amount of points as them, so for Watford it shouldn’t be too difficult to escape the relegation zone. But only if they win some points, of course.
In the last round the Hornets suffered their 11th loss for the season. Nigel Pearson’s team had a visit to Aston Villa in Birmingham which they lost with 1-2. Troy Deeney actually opened the score for Watford, but Villa scored twice in the second half and won.
For the next game Nigel Pearson is going to be without the injured Ismaila Sarr, Daryl Janmaat, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck. This is Watford’s problem for the moment.
Everton will travel to the Vicarage Road after a very dissapointing performance against Newcastle United in the previous round. The Toffees hosted the Magpies at the Goodison Park and won a point after a 2-2 draw. But here it’s more correct to say that they lost two points, because until the 94th minute they had a 2-0 lead in the result. This is when Newcastle scored two quick goals and equalised.
Everton’s manager Carlo Ancelotti was furious after the draw and it’s understandable why. His players failed to win in a game which was their to win.
In these English Premier League predictions we ask the question: how much what happened against Newcastle will affect Everton against Watford? The answer of this question is going to be crucial for the way this match will go.
