Comments:

League position: 15th Everton came from two goals down to win a Premier League game at Goodison Park for the first time since 7 May 1994 when they beat Wimbledon on the last day of the season to avoid relegation. Oumar Niasse had now scored four goals in his four Premier League appearances at Goodison Park so far in this season. The Toffees scored more than two goals for the first time in their last 16 games in the Premier League. Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth said: "I need a lie down in a dark room for half an hour! I didn’t expect the second-half to pan out like it did. We showed great desire and determination. This club is built on that sort of attitude. All I know is that every day since I got the honour of standing in as manager I have given my all and I will continue to do that. I want what's best for this club."

Comments:

League position: 9th Former Everton midfielder Tom Cleverley missed a penalty in the 11th minute of added time at the end of the game. After losing only one of their first eight league games in this season, Watford had now lost three consecutive games in the Premier League. The Hornets had now scored twice in five of their last six games in the Premier League. Watford manager Marco Silva said: "It's really disappointing, for us and our fans. I think we did everything well until they pulled a goal back. We played again in the same way, we controlled the game until it was 2-1 - even after our second goal we had them under control. But then we gave one chance to Everton and they started to believe again. Then we were uncomfortable, and when we lost the ball for the corner for the second and the third with the slip - everything happened with our team. We need to understand why, and we know we need to work on it."
