The (1)3-4-3 formation could be utilised by Watford this weekend as they face Everton at home. Gomes is ready to return as the starting goalkeeper, following full recovery from his small back injury. Prödl, Holebas and Mariappa should play as Watford’s central defenders, with Janmaat and Zeegelaar being moved up as the wing-backs out wide. Doucoure and Capoue are expected to be the central midfielders. In the attacking trio that deconstructed the Chelsea backline, Deulofeu, Deeney and Richarlison feature up front.
Mariappa – Prödl– Holebas
Janmaat – Doucoure – Capoue – Zeegelaar
Deulofeu – Deeney – Richarlison
