Big FC Barcelona had bid 100 million euros for Richarlison this week. The Everton Football Club (table place 12, 30 points) declined this offer. The toffees therefore waived a hefty transfer profit of 60 million euros.

The Brazilian international moved to Goodison Park last summer from Watford Football Club (table position 19, 23 points) for 40 million euros. Ex-hornets and ex-toffee trainer Marco Silva guided his favorite student from Hertfordshire to Merseyside. Probably the greatest achievement in the otherwise bleak tenure of the Portuguese.
A few weeks ago, this game would have been a basement duel. The multiple Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti led the Toffees to a safe midfield in no time. Watford, however, is still stuck in the relegation battle. New coach Nigel Pearson, the third Hornets trainer this season, breathed new life into the Elton John club.
But 14 days ago there was the first setback in the Premier League under Pearson. At competitor Aston Villa, Deeney and Co suffered an away loss. There is no clear favorite between Watford and Everton. This is borne out by the odds of numerous betting providers.
Watford – Statistics & current form
Quique Sánchez Flores, Hornet’s number two coach of three this season, lost his last home game 3-0 to Burnley in November. Since then, Watford has been unbeaten on Vicarage Road five times in a row (3-2-0).
Never before has Watford made six Premier League home games in a row without defeat (in one season). New coach Nigel Pearson won three of the last four appearances in front of his own audience (3-1-0). Previously, the Hornets at home had twelve league games without a win (0-5-7).
Between Watford and Everton, the betting base forecast recommends double chance & over 1.5 hits. Watford have not conceded a goal in four of their last five home league matches. Before that, 20 games were necessary.
The series of six unbeaten Premier League games ended with the 1-2 at Aston Villa. There have been no two league failures in a row since December (three in a row at the time).
Troy Deeney benefits particularly from Nigel Pearson. The striker had been injured for a long time, but the beefy striker scored 42% of Pearson’s Premier League goals (five out of twelve). Deeney scored more often in the eight games under the new trainer than in the previous 19 matches (four).
Goalkeeper Ben Foster most often played zero this season (eight times). As a result, the former national goalkeeper has been without a goal more often than in the entire past season (seven times in 38 games).
Watford failed to score their own goal in eleven of the season’s 24 Premier League games this season. The Hornets also have twice as many goalless draw games (four) as the rest of the league. All of these zero numbers were on Vicarage Road at home. Aston Villa last had more 0-0 games at home (five, 2008/09).
Sebastian Prödl and Daryl Janmaat are injured.

Everton – Statistics & current form
Marco Silva was released from Everton in early December. Since then, the Toffees have suffered only one loss in nine Premier League games (4-4-1). On New Year’s Day there was a 1: 2 complaint at Manchester City.
However, this away defeat was no accident. In foreign countries, the toffees are still hugely depressed. Of the recent twelve Premier League foreign matches, only two were won (2-3-7). Only bottom of the table and promoted Norwich City won even less frequently (once).
Everton only stayed on goal for the first weekend of the season (0-0 at Crystal Palace). Accordingly, Watford vs. Everton our prediction for a tip not the general assessment of bookmakers. They see Everton as the easy favorite.
Everton have conceded at least one goal in each of their last eleven away games. At the same time, the toffees put themselves on the scoreboard in each of the past eight away games. Often in the person of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The striker scored five goals in his six Premier League matches under new coach Carlo Ancelotti.
This makes the 22-year-old also interesting for the English national team. Especially after the long failures of Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford. Previously, Calvert-Lewin needed 16 league games for five goals. Only league leaders and local rivals Liverpool have lost fewer Premier League games since Ancelotti took over at Goodison Park on Boxing Day (3-2-1).
Ancelotti’s only experience with Watford is positive. In January 2012, the Italian won 5-0 against the Hornets. Back then with Chelsea in the FA Cup. Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Andre Gomes and Alex Iwobi are out.
Best scorers in the Premier League:
🏆 10 goals: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
🏆 8 goals: Richarlison
🏆 2 goals: Bernard
Probable lineup of Everton:
↪ Pickford; Digne, Holgate, Keane, Coleman; Bernard, Delph, Davies, Sidibe; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
↪ Coach: Ancelotti
