Everton travel to Vicarage Road to face Javi Gracia’s Hornets as they look to push up the table towards the European spots.

Everton have endured a run of inconsistent results of late winning two out of their previous six games and have struggled to string a run of good results together.

Here’s how Marco Silva’s Everton could line up against the Hornets

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Kurt Zouma

Jordan Pickford (GK): England’s number one has kept six clean sheets in 26 appearances this season.

Seamus Coleman (RB): The experienced defender has made 20 appearances this season but dropped to the bench against Man City. The Irishman put the ball in his own net the last time these teams met in December, but should return to the starting XI this weekend.

Kurt Zouma (CB): Zouma has been a mainstay in the Everton defence since he joined on loan from Chelsea.

Michael Keane (CB): Keane has been a favourite of Marco Silva this season.

Lucas Digne (LB): Digne’s late free kick secured a point the last time the teams met in the league. The former Barcelona player has impressed at Everton this season. 

2. Midfielders

Idrissa Gueye

Andre Gomes (CM): Another former Barca player that has impressed during his time at Goodison. The Portugese midfielder is currently on loan at the Toffees and has made 18 Premier League appearances this season.

Idrissa Gueye (CM): Everton fans will be happy that Gueye is back in the team after he was linked with a move away from Goodison Park in January. The Sengalese international has been an important part of Everton’s squad for the past few season and should start on Saturday.

Theo Walcott (RM): Many fans believe young Ademola Lookman should be ahead of Walcott in the pecking order, but his experience in important games should see him start against Watford.  

Richarlison (LM): Richarlison returns to Vicarage Road for the first time since his £40m move from Watford in the summer. 

Gylfi Sigurdsson (CAM): The Iceland international has been a fan’s favourite since joining from Swansea and will undoubtedly start this weekend. 

3. Forwards

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (ST): The young Englishman has scored four goals this season. The 21 year-old’s last goal came in a substitute appearance against Bournemouth last month, and he will be expected to start ahead of Cenk Tosun against Watford.
