THE TEAM NEWS

WATFORD

  • After a busy week where they played three matches in the space of six days, Watford have had over a week without a game to prepare for this.
  • Their last league game saw them slip to a 2-1 defeat against relegation rivals Aston Villa so they remain thick in the fight for survival.
  • Nigel Pearson will give a late test to Chalobah to see if he is fit enough to retain his place though Hughes could return to replace him.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Foster; Mariappa, Dawson, Cathcart, Masina; Chalobah, Capoue; Pereyra, Doucoure, Deulofeu; Deeney

Unavailable: Janmaat (Injured), Prodl (Injured), Cleverley (Injured), Sarr (Injured)

Doubtful: Kiko Femenia (Injured), Hughes (Injured), Welbeck (Injured), Chalobah (Injured)

EVERTON

  • Everton have lost just one of their last nine league matches now but they come off a poor draw with Newcastle after letting a 2-0 lead slip.
  • Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping to count on Richarlison, Iwobi and Sigurdsson for this match with the Brazilian most likely to return.
  • Pickford came in for some criticism for his part in the capitulation against Newcastle but Ancelotti is unlikely to make any major changes.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Mina, Digne; Walcott, Davies, Delph, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Unavailable: Gbamin (Injured), Andre Gomes (Injured)

Doubtful: Sigurdsson (Injured), Richarlison (Injured), Iwobi (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The arrival of Carlo Ancelotti at Everton has seen an upturn in form but they do not look particularly tight at the back. Watford are playing good counter-attacking football under Pearson and they can upset the Everton defence, so expect goals for both teams in what should be an entertaining game.
