Watford’s Premier League season continued with a draw against Everton at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

A win against Everton, since the Watford one in the first meeting between the sides, is still something the Hornets are seeking as we came back to earn a one-one draw.

Clearly eyes remain, as they have done for several weeks, on the FA Cup with our semi-final with Crystal Palace approaching.

Everton of course also have a semi-final too, they play either Manchester United or West Ham.

The first half looked set to end goalless but with Miguel Britos losing the ball to James McCarthy he scored his first of the season to have Everton ahead in the first-minute of injury-time, which would have seen many expect the Toffees to lead at the break.

But not! John Stones’ pass back to Joel Robles forced the Everton ‘keeper to concede a corner with Jose Holebas heading the equaliser from it to earn a point, via a deflection off Seamus Coleman.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 9th April 2016
West Ham 3-3 Arsenal
Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth
Crystal Palace 1-0 Norwich
Southampton 3-1 Newcastle
Swansea 1-0 Chelsea
Watford 1-1 Everton
Man City 2-1 West Brom

These games are to be played.

Sunday 10th April 2016
Sunderland v Leicester
Liverpool v Stoke
Tottenham v Man Utd

I think we can safely now discount Arsenal (three-three) from the title race after an amazing draw at West Ham, which leaves the Gunners too much to do so it is now a straight two-way battle between favourites Leicester and Tottenham.

Aston Villa (two-one) are now, following this latest defeat to Bournemouth, on the verge of having relegation confirmed with Newcastle (three-one) looking as though they’ll follow them after losing at Southampton.

Finally, for a first time this year, Crystal Palace (one-nil) won with the win at Selhurst Park keeping Norwich with relegation concerns, but helped by Newcastle’s defeat, seeing Palace’s survival all but confirmed now.

Chelsea (one-nil) have recovered well from their poor start but suffered a setback, and rare defeat under Guus Hiddink, at Swansea with them now a sound bet to remain in the Premier League for another season.
