Watford injury boost for Toffees
Watford boss Javi Gracia is still without three first-team stars for the clash with Everton but Abdoulaye Doucoure could return.
Gracia, whose men are eighth in the Premier League, a point better off than ninth-placed Everton, thinks midfielder Doucoure will be available for the match after missing the last four due to a knee problem.
Whether or not he starts the game or has to settle for a role from the bench remains to be seen, but a return for the fans' favourite is a boost for the team.
There could also be a return to action for Kiko Femenia, who has been nursing a hamstring issue.
Roberto Pereyra (calf), Isaac Success (hamstring) and Sebastian Prodl (knee) remain sidelined for a match that sees former boss Marco Silva return to the club.
When asked what sort of reception he thought Silva would get from Watford supporters on Saturday, Gracia said: "I don't know. I think there will be different opinions and all of them are respectable. I don't know.
"I expect the supporters back us, as they usually do. It is the best thing for us, to feel the support we feel all the games, and I think this game, it will be not different."
