Watford v Everton: EL fight to reach fever pitch

11:36, 07 Feb 2019

Watford and Everton are locked in a frenzied fight to qualify for European football next season and this matchup has all the makings of being a six-pointer fixture. Even the top guns in the Premiership have had to sweat to get a result at Vicarage Road this season and Everton will have to be at their best to better the Hornets in their nest.

The teams have met about a dozen times since the turn of the century and the matches have witnessed about three goals on average. 

Both teams used the January window to bring in some solid, if not spectacular, reinforcements. The opposite fixture at Goodison Park took place in mid-December and it ended to be an entertaining 2-2 draw. Everything points to the teams sharing the spoils as just as likely in this match as well.Definitely one to be looking out for, such is the magnitude of the game.
