Two top half hopefuls meet at Vicarage Road in a reprise of an early season thriller when Watford hosts Everton on Saturday (Watch live at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com).
Everton is in a battle for seventh with Burnley and Leicester City, and could finish the weekend there with a win and help.
What they’re saying
Watford’s Jose Holebas on the match: “We have to do something in this game. When we played there, we were 2-0 up and gave the game away in that way – it is unacceptable for me. I was a little bit emotional because I know that this season we have lost some points [from winning positions].”
Everton’s Sam Allardyce on his style critics : “The type of football we’ve produced isn’t rubbish, we’ve produced proper football in terms of what we’ve tried to achieve. The past reputation is not the reality if you ask the players, so you look at the football we’ve played since I’ve been here.”
2-1 to the Toffees. Neither team is in great form but Everton have more potent attacking options.
