Iwobi watch Everton win Watford at Goodison Park

Everton got off to the ideal start as the ever-impressive Lucas Digne picked out Bernard on the left, the Brazilian cut inside before firing home in just the 10th minute - his first Premier League goal at Goodison Park.

Super Eagles starman Alex Iwobi could only watch from the Bench as a goal from Bernard secured a 1-0 victory for Everton in their Premier League clash against Watford on Saturday at Goodison Park.

Watford did rally and came close to levelling the contest when defender Craig Dawson's shot hit the bar, however, the defeat was a fifth consecutive Premier League defeat including three defeats last season.

Their first home game of the 2019/20 season saw the visit of Marco Silva's former club Watford, with the Toffees pursuit of the Portuguese in 2017 still being a sore subject for Hornets fans.

"We got an important win", Silva said.


"Keeping a clean sheet is always important even though our mentality is to play offensive football".

Bernard collected the influential Digne's long ball forward and cut in from the left flank before rifling a low right-foot effort beyond Foster in the 10th minute for his first home Premier League goal.

Having been stunned 3-0 in last week's curtain-raiser at home to Brighton, another loss leaves them pointless after their first two fixtures as Everton moved to four, following their draw at Crystal Palace in their season-opener.

"I am disappointed with the result but not the performance", Watford manager Javi Gracia said. "If you don't score in the moment when you dominate the game then you get punished".
