Marco Silva not happy with Everton’s 2-2 draw with former side Watford

Marco Silva was left unimpressed with Everton’s 2-2 draw against Watford at Goodison Park on Monday Night.

The Toffees took the lead in the first half through top scorer Richarlison, who found the net against his former club to take his tally to eight league goals for the season, three more than he scored in the entirety of last year for the Hornets.

However, Watford were back on terms just after the hour mark when some uninspiring defending saw Roberto Pereyra’s strike come back off the post, only for it to hit Seamus Coleman in what was an unfortunate own goal for the Ireland international.

Two minutes later, the visitors were ahead after some more poor defending from the hosts saw Abdoulaye Doucoure beat three Everton defenders to score a header from just three yards out.

The Blues then missed a chance to level the game when Ben Foster saved Gylfi Sigurdsson’s spot kick, but in the 96th minute, Lucas Digne salvaged a point with a fine free-kick.

However, speaking after the game, Marco Silva – who of course left Watford last year in acrimonious circumstances – wasn’t impressed by his side’s performance.

“We lost our focus completely [for Watford’s goals],” Silva told the BBC. “Those two moments were not too special.

“We are not happy with the result. When you start like we start and achieve just one point, of course we are unhappy. Our goal for the match is completely different from the result.”
