Everton kick off their home programme of Premier League fixtures for the new season with the visit to Goodison Park of Watford this weekend as Marco Silva's team bid to improve on last weekend's goalless draw at Crystal Palace.

Watford played spoiler in this game last season, however, holding Everton to a 2-2 draw in a fixture that the Toffees felt, in tandem with the visit of Newcastle a few days previously and on the basis of their form prior to the Merseyside derby at Anfield, as an opportunity to put three points in the board.

In an encounter that was hugely reminiscent of the same game back in April, the Blues struggled to break down the Eagles' shape and had to be content with a point from a largely impotent display but in the familiar environs of home, Silva will hope to see his players spread their wings a little more.

Note: the following content is not moderated or vetted by the site owners at the time of submission.

Silva will have to contend with some early-season selection concerns in midfield where André Gomes is a significant doubt given the silence on his prognosis from the club this week and Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended.

The Frenchman picked up two bookings and was given his marching orders with a quarter of an hour to go at Selhurst Park last week while the Portuguese sustained an ankle injury at the end of the first half.

Davies made an impressive cameo in tricky circumstances last Saturday following Schneiderlin's dismissal and he will see this as an opportunity to stake his claims.
