Everton’s predicted XI to face Watford on Saturday

Premiership Picks

Everton will look to pick up their first Premier League win of the season when they host Watford at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Toffees had to make do with a point on the opening day of the campaign following a goalless draw away at Crystal Palace, and they may well have been satisfied with that given Morgan Schneiderlin’s second-half dismissal left them with 10 men on the pitch.

Now manager Marco Silva comes up against his former employers, and he has Schneiderlin’s suspension, as well as Andre Gomes being a doubt after he was forced off just before half-time at Selhurst Park, to contend with.

Here is the team we think he will select this weekend…

The back five pretty much picks itself right now – especially after an opening day clean sheet – with Lucas Digne, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina’s spots all pretty secure given the lack of depth in their particular positions.

Djibril Sidibe could soon push Seamus Coleman for the right-back spot, but it won’t happen against the Hornets.

In midfield, it will be a completely different central duo to the one that started against Palace, with Tom Davies and summer arrival Jean-Philippe Gbamin coming into the XI in place of Schneiderlin and Gomes, with Fabian Delph still unavailable.

Ahead of them, Gylfi Sigurdsson keeps his place in the No.10 role despite coming under criticism from fans on Twitter for his display against Roy Hodgson’s men last time out, with Richarlison on the right.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin also keeps his spot ahead of Moise Kean who is still adapting to life in English football, but there is a debut for another new boy in Alex Iwobi, who comes in to replace Bernard on the left wing.

It will be interesting to see how the former Arsenal man fares should he get the nod.
