Iwobi’s Everton edge a point closer to EPL safety with draw at Watford

Everton edged a point closer to safety with a goalless draw at relegated Watford.

After a first half of few clear-cut chances, Everton came out strongly after the break and Richarlison’s deflected shot forced a fine save from Ben Foster.

Demarai Gray, who looked lively throughout, fired wide from the edge of the area as the Toffees continued to press. But they could not find a winner.

Frank Lampard’s side remain 16th but are now two points above the relegation zone, after 18th-placed Leeds United lost 3-0 to Chelsea on Wednesday.

The Toffees also have a match in hand on Leeds, and a far better goal difference.

Despite Watford’s first home clean sheet of the season, they stay 19th on 23 points.
