Following a week that has tested Evertonians' patience to the limit, Blues fans might need to hold their nerves again for Monday night's visit of Watford but the omens remain good that Marco Silva's men can return to winning ways.

The last 10 goals scored in Premier League matches between Everton and Watford have been scored in the second half.

Watford also seem to be suffering from some Monday night Blues away from Vicarage Road having failed to win any of their last nine away league matches played on a Monday (W0 D2 L7) since a 2-1 win at Scunthorpe United in January 2011.

But while the Merseyside Derby has become an inexplicably maddening bogey fixture for the Blues in recent seasons, the prospect of Newcastle United on the horizon, an opponent who Everton had beaten without conceding in their previous five meetings offered more promise.

Javi Gracia's side took three points in the return fixture on February 24 this year with captain Troy Deeney netting the only goal of the game but Watford have never won back to back league matches against Everton and the Blues have won 11 of their 12 home matches against them in all competitions, drawing the other 2-2 on the opening day of the 2015/16.

That success was in the Championship and the Hornets’ last Monday away win in the top flight was in May 1986 against Chelsea (P12 W0 D3 L9 since).

Jordan Pickford's last-gasp mistake on Sunday handed Liverpool a fifth stoppage time winner over their neighbours in the Premier League era and ensured Everton's wait for a victory at Anfield extended into a 20th year.
