Everton will face off against Watford at Goodison Park on Monday night hoping to return to winning ways after failing to beat Newcastle United in front of their home supporters earlier this week. The Toffees would come up against a well-drilled Javi Gracia side which could be a threat on the counter, so Marco Silva’s defenders need to have a good game at the back if they are to come away with a win from this league encounter.
Everton will probably line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation but might be without the services of Morgan Schneiderlin who is a major doubt for this Monday night clash.
4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Watford
Jordan Pickford is expected to operate as the goalkeeper for the home team on Monday night while Maarten Stekelenburg has to settle for a spot on Marco Silva’s bench. The centre-half duo of Michael Keane and Yerry Mina could feature at the heart of the Everton defence after they kept two successive clean sheets against Chelsea and Cardiff City last month.
Lucas Digne will operate as the left-back as he looks to join in on the attack down the left flank. Seamus Coleman will be unleashed on the other side, but he might have his hands full while up against Watford’s Roberto Pereyra.
The Toffees defenders will need to be at their best on Monday if they are to cope with the threat of Troy Deeney and Andre Gray.
Idrissa Gueye will resume his duties as a defensive midfielder alongside Andre Gomes who would try to link up the Everton defence with their attack. The tantalizing trio of Bernard, Gylfi Sigurðsson and Theo Walcott might lineup ahead of them as part of the Toffees attack.
Sigurðsson has been in terrific form for the Merseyside outfit in recent weeks so he would once again look to impress when he laces up to take on the Hornets defenders on Monday.
Richarlison will spearhead the Toffees attack up top with both Cenk Tosun, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin set to remain on the bench. The Brazilian sensation managed to find the back of the net last weekend which should give him a lot of confidence going into this clash.
