£55k-a-week player must be binned: Three things learned about Everton in loss v Watford
Everton slipped closer to the bottom half of the Premier League table with a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.
Troy Deeney netted a 79th minute winner to help the Hornets ease any concerns about potentially being dragged into a relegation dog fight.
It was a rather dull affair at Vicarage Road with neither side really grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck.
Sam Allardyce’s Everton offered little to nothing throughout the 90 minutes as they only managed to test Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis with two shots on target.
One of the moments of the game came in the dying seconds when Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford went forward to attack a corner kick to cause chaos among the home side’s defence.
However Javi Gracia’s side managed to hang on to the narrow victory to move them up to 10th place in the table, just one point behind the Toffees who sit ninth with 34 points after 28 games played.
