Everton are preparing to bring on midfielder Ademola Lookman.
As it stands, Watford are heading for their fourth away win of the season. What a job Marco Silva is doing at the Hornets.
Hard to believe £100m was spent on this squad during the summer. It just isn't good enough.
Watford are looking really threatening now and a second goal would put the Toffees out of their misery.
Everton have been poor once again and they deserve to be losing. Who would have predicted this at the start of the season?
GOAL - WATFORD ARE AHEAD!
The visitors launch a counter-attack with Gray dinking a through ball to Richarlison and the Brazilian does brilliantly to round Pickford before poking home from a tight angle.
He missed a sitter earlier but Richarlison has made amends now, leaving Everton with a mountain to climb.
- 2nd Half
Everton start the second half. Unsworth will be hoping for an improved performance from his side.
- End of 1st Half
Goalless at the break. Baines spurned Everton's best opportunity, while Richarlison missed an open net for Watford.
Apart from that, it has been rather boring.
One additional minute will be played at the end of a scrappy first-half.
Watford are growing in confidence and taking the game to Everton as we approach half time. The Toffees need to dig deep now and hold on until the break.
Pickford's decision making was questionable a moment ago, but he does well just now to save from Doucoure's shot from close range.
WHAT A MISS!
Gray out-muscles Jagielka and releases Richarlison who rounds Pickford, but he screws his shot wide of the goal.
Everton's defensive vulnerabilities highlighted once more, but they get away with it this time.
Another free-kick to Everton. This time Baines curls it in and the ball falls kindly for Davies, but his effort is blocked.
Everton win another free-kick on the right channel and this time Sigurdsson's delivery is really poor as it doesn't beat the first man.
This game is really crying out for a goal, or even a half decent opportunity. Can anyone provide a much needed spark at Goodison? Please?

Sigurdsson delivers a teasing free-kick in from the right, but the ball ricochets into the arms of Gomes.
Niasse finds space in the Watford box, but Gueye's pass is too short and the visitors clear.
Groans of frustration can be heard from the home crowd as Everton move the ball back towards their own goal. Be patient!
The game is finally poised as we reach the half-hour mark. Chances have been few and far between, but this yet could develop into a decent spectacle.
Jagielka clears from Holebas' long throw-in, but only as far as Femenia who shoots well over the bar from 25 yards.
Femenia drills a low cross into the path of Gray, but the Watford forward gets his shot all wrong!
Tenacious work from Rooney as he wins the ball back deep inside his own area before finding Davies who spots Gomes off his line and tries to lob the keeper, but his effort drifts over the bar.
Under severe pressure from a number of Everton defenders, Richarlison does well to deliver a cross into the box, but the ball lands into the arms of Pickford once more.
Richarlison is released on the left, but the Watford playmaker is offside.
The game is starting to open up a little, and about time too.
Rooney picks out Baines inside the box, but the Everton full-back side-foots the ball straight at Gomes who parries the danger away.
Should have done better.
Gray tries to backheel the ball to Doucoure inside the Everton box, but Baningime is alert to intercept.
The ball goes out of play and Holebas has another opportunity to deliver a long throw-in. However, it is headed on into the arms of Pickford who easily collects.
Carrillo tries to release Femenia down the channel but his pass is over-hit. Both sides are struggling in attack at the moment.
It has been a low key start, to say the least. Not one opportunity to talk about, nada.
Sigurdsson's cross sails over the heads of his three team mates who were well positioned in the Watford box, and the chance is gone.
Watford win a corner, which Cleverley overcooks and Pickford can comfortably watch the ball go over the bar.
Now Holebas delivers a long throw-in into the Everton box, but it falls favourably to Kenny who clears his lines.
Watford have been the better side in the early stages.
Holebas is again given too much space on the channel but his cross doesn't find Gray and Keane can clear.
A promising move breaks down for Everton as Niasse mis-places his pass to Sigurdsson on the edge of the penalty area.
Kabasele makes amends by heading clear from the free-kick.
It isn't long before Everton form another attack though, but Rooney is an offside position as he receives Davies' pass.
Kabasele does well to intercept Davies' through ball for Niasse, but the Watford defender then proceeds to foul Niasse as he clears the danger.
This is a free-kick in a dangerous area.
The Toffees only have eight points from their opening 10 games and it is clear the players are lacking confidence. How they could do with an early goal here.
Pickford lands awkwardly as he punches Holebas' cross clear and Everton win a free-kick.
Kenny and Richarlison collide, but they will both be fine to continue.
Ninth-placed Watford, meanwhile, will go into eighth place if they avoid defeat.
Everton can move as high as 15th position with a victory today, but it's going to be a tough ask for Unsworth's side.
- 1st Half
Watford get the game underway.
A minute's silence will be observed ahead of Armistice Day.
Morgan Schneiderlin and Kevin Mirallas are not even included on the substitute's bench this afternoon and there are reports that Unsworth isn't happy with how the pair were training.
All is far from well at Goodison.
"I'm proud to be Everton manager," said Unsworth. "But it's not about me, it's about what's best for the club. We need a win for the fans and the players. We all need to come together and win a game of football."
Unsworth has lost all three of his games in charge, so as far as trial runs go, the 44-year-old hasn't been very successful.
There was a marked improvement in his first match - a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the League Cup - but the performances at Leicester and Lyon were pretty soul destroying.
Watford have lost their last two league games, but their record on the road is pretty impressive - Silva has guided his side to three wins in their previous five away games.
It is important Everton make a positive start.
Marco Silva makes two changes to the Watford side that lost at home to Stoke last time out, with Will Hughes replacing Etienne Capoue’s in midfield and Andre Gray taking the place of the suspended Troy Deeney in attack.
A run of five games without a Premier League win has left Everton in the relegation zone. Still without a manager, David Unsworth continues in his role as caretaker and makes six changes to the side that lost 3-0 to Lyon.
Michael Keane returns from injury to take his place in defence, while Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines, Tom Davies, Oumar Niasse and Wayne Rooney all come in for Ashley Williams, Cuco Martina, Morgan Schneiderlin, Aaron Lennon and Ademola Lookman.
