Everton looks to rebound from a rare loss when it hosts Watford, albeit without two former Hornets stars due to injury (start time 10am ET on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com).
Rafa Benitez is unlikely to have Richarlison and will definitely not have Abdoulaye Doucoure this weekend, but will still have hope of moving from eighth into the top four.
The Toffees are one point back of fourth, while Claudio Ranieri’s Hornets have dropped into 16th and are just four points above the bottom three after eight matches.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Everton vs Watford.

Watford will fancy its chances of hitting Everton on the counter but Rafa Benitez has been there before and both he and Ranieri are savvy operators. The Toffees’ injury problems will add to Watford’s hopes, even if those injuries are all on the attacking end. Everton 1-0 Watford.
