Why you should back Everton
Richarlison has been producing of late, as he has scored seven goals over his last nine games across all competitions. The 24-year-old Brazilian forward is the Toffees' top scorer with eight goals and is tied for the team lead with four assists. Richarlison provided the offense in Everton's 1-0 victory against Chelsea on May 1 and also scored in a 5-2 loss to Watford at home in October.
The Toffees are hoping Demarai Gray can break out of a slump that has seen him 15 league matches without a goal. The 25-year-old winger is second on the club with five goals and has added three assists in 30 contests. Everton recorded two goals for the first time in five games on Sunday as defenders Vitaliy Mykolenko and Mason Holgate scored in a 2-1 triumph over Leicester City.
Why you should back Watford
The Hornets are 19th in the standings and will be relegated to the EFL Championship next season. The club also has a plethora of injuries, so it will look to tighten its defense in order to challenge for points against Everton. Watford was encouraged by its performance on Saturday as it allowed only one goal in a loss to Crystal Palace.
Two players Watford is hoping can provide some offense on Wednesday are French midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Brazilian forward Joao Pedro. A 32-year-old, Sissoko has recorded two goals and an assist in his first season with the Hornets after spending the previous five with Tottenham. The 20-year-old Pedro also has notched a pair of goals and an assist in 25 games after registering nine and two, respectively, over 38 matches last campaign.
