THE TEAM NEWS

EVERTON

  • Everton were frustrated at Palace last week when they could only manage a goalless draw as they were not helped by injuries and a red card.
  • Schneiderlin will miss out here through suspension while Andre Gomes is a major doubt after limping off which leaves them light in midfield.
  • Gbamin came on for his debut and although he found the pace of the game to be fast, he should start with either Andre Gomes or Davies.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne; Andre Gomes, Gbamin; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin

Unavailable: Delph (Injured), Schneiderlin (Suspended)

Doubtful: Baines (Injured), Andre Gomes (Injured)

WATFORD

  • Watford endured a miserable start to the season as they were hammered 0-3 at home to Brighton in a shock result at Vicarage Road.
  • Pereyra was left on the bench last week as he edges back to fitness but there is every chance the Argentine returns to the starting XI.
  • Dawson came in for his debut at the back in that match and despite the set-back, he should keep his place alongside Cathcart in the middle.

Predicted line-up (4-2-2-2): Foster; Kiko Femenia, Dawson, Cathcart, Holebas; Doucoure, Capoue; Hughes, Pereyra; Deeney, Gray

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Penaranda (Injured), Chalobah (Injured), Foulquier (Injured), Welbeck (Injured), Sarr (Fitness)

THE PREDICTION

Watford looked to be suffering something of a hangover from the FA Cup final defeat and poor end to last season as Brighton hammered them. They travel north to Goodison where Everton will be itching to get their first three points and are notoriously strong, so expect a home win in this one.
