Odds: +200

Everton were magnificent in the Merseyside derby. The players might have felt gutted if they had only drawn the game, although to lose by conceding such a freak goal in front of the Kop must have been galling.

Marco Silva needs to rally the troops and urge them to use the setback positively, with the Toffees looking a good bet to not only beat their manager’s former club but actually claim the spoils without conceding a goal.

Silva earned a reputation for playing maverick football with Watford, although he’s been able to focus on defensive matters at Goodison Park, with Yerry Mina partnering Michael Keane in the heart of the defence.

Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne both shone at Anfield, while Andre Gomes is the jewel in the crown and the only thing that Everton are probably lacking is a striker, even if Richarlison plays on the last man and will also be facing his former club.

Watford started the campaign in impressive fashion although their performance levels have dropped and they are short of goals at the moment, with Isaac Success struggling to make an impact and it might be that Troy Deeney or Andre Gray is fielded as an alternative.

Etienne Capoue is suspended in midfield and we really like the odds about Everton claiming another victory without reply to indicate they are along the right lines this season and might yet claim a place in the top six.

Watford scored three at Burnley in their first away match and they have scored just four in their ensuring six road trips, with Javi Gracia looking beyond this match for opportunities to land points.
