In truth, the Toffees look clear of the drop now on 34 points in ninth, but such is the congestion of the top flight that Watford, on 30 points in 11th have not put their concerns to bed.
Whatever the result, we can expect entertainment with Watford scoring more than any other side in the bottom half of the table and Everton conceding 46 goals in their 27 games this season.
Sam Allardyce’s men won their last outing against Crystal Palace, but they have not won back-to-back games yet this year.

The match is on Saturday, February 24 with kick-off at 5.30pm at Vicarage Road.
