Watford are looking to record four consecutive home top-flight wins against an opponent for the first time in their history.

Everton hope to keep an away PL clean sheet for the first time since the opening weekend v Crystal Palace. However, the Toffees have also scored in each of their last eight away matches.

Only Liverpool have scored more headed goals than Everton's 10 this season, but Watford's one headed goal conceded is fewer than any other side.

Troy Deeney has scored 42 per cent of Watford's PL goals under Nigel Pearson, with five of 12. Meanwhile, Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin has struck five goals in six appearances under Carlo Ancelotti.
