Comments:

League position: 10th Watford had now won consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2017. The Hornets kept a clean sheet for the second time in their last 15 games in the Premier League. Troy Deeney scored his first goal in open play in the Premier League since the 2-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on 4 April 2017.

Comments:

League position: 9th Everton had now won one of their last 22 away games in the Premier League (lost 12) and had lost the last four in a row. The Toffees avoided conceding four or more goals in three consecutive away league games for the first time since February 1961. They had now not kept a clean sheet since the goalless draw at West Bromwich Albion on Boxing Day 2017.
