  • Early Bernard goal earns nervy Everton win over Watford

Everton picked up their first win of the season courtesy a first-half strike from Brazilian winger Bernard Duarte.

Silva was impressed with his side's opening half an hour, and the second clean sheet in as many games following the draw away at Crystal Palace in last week's season opener.

After the break, Everton continued to be careless in possession, with Jordan Pickford making a fine save with his face to deny Troy Deeney following a swift Watford counter.

Everton are looking to win five consecutive Premier League home games for the first time since a run of eight under Ronald Koeman in April 2017.

Everton started with plenty of goal, with Lucas Digne delivering a couple of teasing set-pieces into the area, while the Frenchman's free-kick looped off the wall before being gathered at the second attempt by Ben Foster.

Today marks the beginning of the game week for Florida football as they prepare for the season-opener in Orlando against Miami. Earlier this week, new Miami head coach Manny Diaz named Jarren Williams as the team's starting quarterback.

Digne missed a chance to score early after dragging his shot wide but then produced a superb long-range pass to pick out Bernard for the opener - a goal Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster could have done better with.

Last Saturday, Watford faced Brighton & Hove Albion for the first time this year and failed to start things off on the right foot.

Richarlison put another header over the bar before being replaced by Theo Walcott, while former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck came on for his Watford debut to cheers and chants from the visiting contingent.

But the 49-year-old Spanish tactician has insisted the new recruit will not be rushed into action.

Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson has played eight Premier League games against Watford without registering a single goal or assist.
