Stat Pack: Seamus Bidding To Make It 250 For Everton

Everton take on Watford at Vicarage Road this weekend and, ahead of the Premier League clash in Hertfordshire, provides the facts and figures from down the years between the Toffees and the Hornets.


If he plays against Watford it will be Seamus Coleman's 250th appearance for us in all competitions. He'd be the 64th Everton player to reach that milestone.
Tom Davies, on the other hand, will be making his 50th Premier League appearance for us if he plays - the 88th player to reach that figure for us.

Coleman 750
The last time we played a game on 24 February was in 2007 and it was…away at Watford! We won 3-0 on that occasion with Manuel Fernandes, Andy Johnson’s penalty and Leon Osman securing the victory.
We won the last time we met the Hornets - 3-2 at home in November with David Unsworth as our caretaker manager. And what a game it was - 0-0 at half-time, Watford then took a 2-0 lead after 64 minutes, only for Oumar Niasse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin to draw us level and Leighton Baines to net a 91st minute winner from the penalty spot! 

Even then there was still more drama as former blue, Tom Cleverley, missed a 101st-minute spot-kick.

Our full Premier League record against Watford, home and away, is W6 D2 L1 - F21 A11. On a points-per-game basis, that's our best record against any Premier League opponent that we've met five times or more.

Overall, in all competitions at all venues, our record against them is W19 D3 L3 - F57 A30. 
A draw would be the 150th away from home in our Premier League history, in our 495th away Premier League match.
If Watford miss a penalty on Saturday it will be the 100th missed by all of our opponents in all of our away league games. If either Watford or the Blues miss one, that will be 150 missed in all of our away league games.

If that Watford penalty is saved, it will be the fourth one saved this season by an Everton keeper. Jordan Pickford saved one at Hajduk Split in August and against West Ham at Goodison in November, while Joel Robles kept one out against Atalanta again in November.  

Everton keepers have saved three spot-kicks in a season several times before - most recently in the 2009/10 campaign - but we've never had a season where Everton keepers have saved four penalties.

Between us and our opponents, five penalties have been saved by goalkeepers this season. Only once before - in 1904/05 - have six penalties been saved in Everton fixtures.
