Lucas Digne’s injury-time free-kick earned Everton a point and denied Watford what would have been a sweet victory over former manager Marco Silva.

Abdoulaye Doucoure looked to have headed the winner after Seamus Coleman’s own goal cancelled out Richarlison’s opener against his old club.  Gylfi Sigurdsson then missed a penalty for the second time this season but Watford were denied their first win at Goodison Park as Digne opened his account for the Toffees with a sumptuous effort in stoppage-time.

Watford fans brought inflatable snakes to taunt Marco Silva but the surest way to torment their former manager lay in the club’s first victory at Everton. It was in their grasp until stoppage time, deservedly so, only for Lucas Digne to produce an antidote for Silva and Everton’s self-inflicted suffering.

“I didn’t see anything,” said the Portuguese. “It is not important to me.” But neither time nor the authorities have healed Watford’s wounds. The club’s complaint to the Premier League about what they think was an illegal approach remains unresolved and while Everton had attempted to repair relations by paying what they felt was over the odds for Richarlison, his £40 million fee now looks money well spent.  

As we entered through the turnstiles, we were greeted by Dave Messenger who was handing out vouchers for £10 for food and drink.  A really lovely gesture from the club to reward those who had made the journey to Liverpool on a Monday night.  The smallish crowd meant that it was like the old days in the away stand, with us able to take any seat we wanted.  So we headed to an empty section further back where we could stretch out and move about in comfort.  Bliss!

If the away end was loud after the second goal, it was ten times louder now as the game entered the final ten minutes.  I felt physically sick as the Fourth Official held up his board to show six minutes of additional time to be played.  Watford were doing well, winning the ball back comfortably and running the clock down at any chance they could.  As the game entered the final minute, a lofted ball towards the Watford goal was handled by Kabasele as he failed to make the header. As soon as the free kick was given myself and all the other Watford fans around me knew what was coming.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Around half an hour into the first period, Miles commented that it was “okay so far”. From someone who’s quick enough with a strong opinion, this was a statement so spectacularly radical that it required a serious double-take. Such generosity can only be explained by the festive spirit, or having spent most of the time playing computer games instead of watching properly. Because the first half, while considerably more competent than its counterpart seven days ago, offered the most dour, relentlessly unrewarding football seen at Vicarage Road since the last time that I wrote a sentence like this. It was “okay” only in the sense that nobody died.
