Everton take on manager Marco Silva’s former club Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday. The Toffees could do with a win, having lost three of the their previous four Premier League outings.
Silva’s side have been struggling at both ends of the pitch recently, and the Portuguese coach will be looking for a positive response from his side against the Hornets. Plenty of Everton players have something to prove, few more so than striker Cenk Tosun.
Since his £27 million January 2018 switch to Goodison Park, the 27-year-old forward has flopped in English football. As per Transfermarkt’s stats, the 35-cap Turkey international has scored just two league goals this season and has been afforded only eight starts.

However, the powerful 6’0” attacker could have an impact against Watford. Javi Gracia’s defenders are rough, tough and physical. They are opponents who Tosun could compete with and perhaps thrive against, whereas the likes of Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin might be bullied or struggle to impose themselves.
The Turkey international has the attributes to hurt the Hertfordshire-based outfit, and if he takes any given chance to do so he could finally prove his worth to Everton too.
