Watford have been extremely hit-and miss since they returned back to the top-flight, however this has been the case more than ever in 2017/18, a fact which has been highlighted in their two most recent outings. The Hornets thrashed reigning champions Chelsea to the tune of 4-1 at Vicarage Road but they followed this up by losing 2-0 at West Ham United. To have gone from such an impressive performance to such a dismal one in a short space of time illustrates perfectly Watford's struggles this term and with the side sitting eleventh in the Premier League and desperately close to the relegation zone, they need to return to winning ways should they wish to avoid being dragged into a relegation scrap.

Their home form has thus far been pretty decent and this is something which they need to build upon in the coming weeks, starting with a much-needed win over Everton on Saturday evening. The Hornets have won three of their last five home games although they will be in for a tough test from an Everton outfit fresh from their warm-weather training in Dubai. Sam Allardyce's men will be looking for a European berth at the end of this season and this is an achievable target for a side which returned to winning ways last time out with a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace. The Toffees sit just two points adrift of the top-seven in the league table although all-in-all the current season has been littered with disappointment thus far given that they have been pretty poor on their travels. Just three wins have been managed in their last thirty away matches in the top-flight and clearly this is a standard which needs to be improved upon. Indeed given that Everton have lost their last three away games, a win on Saturday would be seen as a massive achievement.

The last meeting between these sides produced a thrilling 3-2 win for the Toffees after they had gone 2-0 down with just 25 minutes left on the clock. We're not suggesting that we'll see a similar outcome this time around however but we do expect a thoroughly entertaining affair which we envisage going the way of the home side.
