Watford pressing late on. They force another corner. In it comes from Niang, headed clear. Deeney gets ahead of Jagialka but heads out for a goal kick. Mirallas replaces by Kone.

84' 

Really poor delivery from Holebas on the free kick. Never looked like beating the first man. Really disappointing. Kone coming on for Everton.

Niang clattered by Gueye and lucky to escape without a card.

Okaka is in behind Williams but the defender does brilliantly to hook it away before he can pull the trigger. Great ball from Zuniga.

Good form.

75' 

As it stands, it’s still mathematically possible for Watford to go down. Would take a great run from someone else though.

74' 
73' 

The introduction of Enner Valencia has made a big difference to Everton in this second half.

69'

CHANCE! Janmaat feeds Okaka and it takes a great block from Schneiderlin to prevent his shot going on target. Watford not done yet.

68'

CHANCE! Valencia rewards Everton with another corner. In it comes from Baines and Schneiderlin heads over at the near post. Should score.

67' 

Barkley teasing Watford on the right flank. He lifts in a cheeky ball but it’s easily hoofed clear. Watford need to get something going.

66' 
65' 

Well that looked a very good shout. Looked like Janmaat got precious little of the ball there.

64'

PENALTY SHOUT! Gomes parries a Mirallas shot and Lukaku goes down in an attempt to follow up under pressure from Janmaat. Not given.

63' 

Everton looking in the mood for a second as Lukaku flashes a ball across the face of goal. Nobody there to take advantage.

62' 

Everton fans showing their support for Kevin Mirallas, who signed a new contract today. He responds with a round of applause.

Kevin Mirallas
61' 
60'

A win on Friday would mean Everton finish the season with 43 points at home, their highest tally since 1989-90 when they amassed 45 points.

59' 

Prodl possibly at fault for that goal. He backed off and backed off, daring Barkley to shoot. Didn’t work!

58' 

Watford force a corner. In it comes but slightly too deep and Everton counter. The touch by Mirallas is slightly too heavy and it’s out for a goal kick.

57' 

That’s Ross Barkley’s fifth goal in the Premier League this season. Perhaps inevitable with the talk surrounding his future.

GOAL EVERTON! And it’s a really good one. He strides forward and lets fly and finally Gomes is beaten as it skims across the surface, one bounce and into the corner.

55' 

He has certainly started well.

54'

CHANCE! Janmaat escapes down the left, gets his cross in and Deeney pokes wide from close range. Not easy off this slick surface.

53' 

Schneiderlin can't keep his shot down and it sails over the bar. On we go...

52' 

Doucouré with a hand on Davies’ back in the box and the crowd scream for a penalty. Would have been harsh.

51' 

Really good defending from Jagielka under pressure from Okaka. He draws the foul and gets a free kick for his trouble.

50' 

Plenty of urgency from Everton at the start of this second half. Valencia seeing a lot of the ball already.

49' 

Davies feeds Valencia, who does well to get his cross in and thwarted by Gomes before clattering into the hoardings. He’s okay.

HALF TIME: Everton 0 Watford 0

45+2'

Another poor ball from Janmaat after he did well to hold off Mirallas. It’s out for a goal kick.

45' 

There will be three added minutes here after that Kabasele injury and Janmatt v Davies incident.

43' 

Barkley does well to pick out Mirallas with a cute little ball behind Behrami. Sadly, Barkley’s resultant cross following the corner is out for a goal kick as he loses his footing on the slippery surface.

42' 

Not really seen enough of Baines, Mirallas and Barkley in the last ten minutes. Lukaku also being kept quiet.

WATFORD SUB: Zuniga on for Kabasele.

36' 

Indeed, he’s limping off with Zuniga ready to come on. Shame as he's been playing well.

35' 

Kabasele looks to be in trouble and may play no further part in the action tonight. A change imminent.

34' 
33' 

Deeney fouls Schneiderlin as Everton attack. Kevin Friend pulls it back for a free kick when perhaps he should have played the advantage.

32' 
31' 

A cheeky tug back from Gueye on Okaka and he’s lucky to escape without a yellow with players in advance of him.

30'

STAT: Everton have gone three league games without a goal for the first time since a four-match drought in April 2006.

29' 

Watford win another corner. It goes short again and Holebas delivers an excellent cross that Mariappa heads over. Should have done better.

28' 
27' 

The game entering a quiet phase. A tame Holgate effort is easily batted down by Gomes.

26'

The Hornets need five points to equal last season's tally of 45. They'll be more concerned by getting the one that ensures safety.

24' 

Still we await the opening goal here but not for lack of effort. Gomes has been on fine form.

SAVE! A lovely flick from Barkley sets Davies away. He shoots from distance and again Gomes called into action to make a really good save on the stretch.

Now over nine hours since Watford have scored an away goal! They've already threatened.

19'

SHOTS: Everton 2-4 Watford

18' 
17' 

Everton force yet another corner after a poor pass from Kabasele. In it comes and headed clear by Doucouré.

16' 

A highly entertaining game here already. Chances at either end and it looks as though the goal drought affecting both teams may end.

15'

A mistake from Barkley gives the ball to Okaka who fizzes a shot across the slick surface and only inches wide of Robles’ post.

14'

SAVE! Baines delivers as the rain continues to team down. Jagielka connects on the volley and it takes a good save from Gomes again to keep Everton from taking the lead.

13' 

Mirallas takes a tumble after a challenge from Mariappa. He wants a free kick but nothing given. Everton win a corner up the other end.

12' 

A good spell for Watford and Everton are fortunate to escape after some pinball in their box. They didn't set up well for the short corner.

11' 

Watford force another corner, again cleared at the near post. No let-up in the rain here. Absolutely pelting down as Watford have another corner. Capoue shoots and Barkley clears.

10'

POSSESSION: Everton 70%-30% Watford

9' 

Now Janmaat has a pop and it comes off Williams’ shin and out for a first corner. Could have gone anywhere. Holebas takes, easily cleared at the near post. Poor delivery.

8'

The Toffees have the best shot accuracy in the division - 41% of their goal attempts have been on target.

7' 

Watford only need a point to secure their Premier League survival. They’re pretty much done barring a Hull miracle. Another cross from Barkley is behind for a goal kick.

6'

SAVE! Good feet from Barkley and perhaps he should score but it’s a decent save low down from Gomes.

5' 

A nice touch.

4' 

A decent, winding run from Mirallas and he twice has the opportunity to pull the trigger before running into two defenders. Shame.

3' 

This pitch holding an awful lot of water, some players changing their boots before kick-off. Let’s hope the surface leads to some slick passing football.

2' 

Everton setting up 4-3-3, Watford in their change strip of white with black socks, 3-5-2. Both teams shy of goals at the moment.

TEN MINUTES TO KICK-OFF: Watford have lost nine of their previous 10 games at Goodison Park. However, they finally avoided defeat on their most recent visit, a 2-2 draw on the opening day of last season.

19.30

Everton have gone three matches without a win against Watford, having previously enjoyed nine successive victories in all competitions.

19.25

A win on Friday would mean Everton finish the season with 43 points at home, their highest tally since 1989-90 when they amassed 45 points.

Ronald Koeman on Ross Barkley's future (via BBC): "The board is already working for a while to persuade him to stay but it's up to the player. We need an answer before the end of next week or we will sell the player. If you need so much time then you have doubts. I like to work with players who like to stay. We're already trying to get players who want to play in the front positions for next season."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is not sure if Ross Barkley, pictured, will sign a new contract.

Watford have failed to score in five consecutive away league games, losing all of them. It is their longest away run without scoring since a seven-match streak in December 1979.

Walter Mazzarri on his side's poor form (via BBC Sport): "West Ham lost five in a row, West Bromwich Albion lost four; these periods can happen. Of course, I hope for it to not happen, and I don't like it. Let's not forget, when we had a complete squad, we reached seventh in the Premier League. We were 10th for the majority with a fully-fit side. In some seasons unexpected things can happen. We reached 40 points with six games left, and now we will see how well we finish."
