The Toffees slumped to a narrow 1-0 loss to West Ham United at the same venue last weekend, but they will fancy their chances of a quick turnaround against a Watford side reeling from a heavy loss at home. 
Claudio Ranieri's reign as Hornets boss got off to the worst possible start. Liverpool put Watford to the sword, winning 5-0 at Vicarage Road. 

"I saw some bad things but I have also seen some good things," said Ranieri after the hammering. "The last 20 minutes we went face-to-face with Liverpool. We should have done that from the beginning, but we were very nervous. Some of the goals were presents."

"We know we made some mistakes and we have to improve next week. But we will work this week on trying to correct those mistakes. I will tell them what happened and slowly, slowly we will try to improve.

"But I am a very positive person and always, my confidence is high," he added, ahead of their match against another Merseyside club.

Everton took six points off Watford in the 2019/20 season. The Toffees won 1-0 at home before a 3-2 comeback win in the reverse fixture, which was sparked by a Yerry Mina brace.
