Everton target Doucoure scores but Pereyra’s performance surely tempts Silva

Roberto Pereyra picked up two assists against Everton last night.

Marco Silva met his former club Watford last night in a game that ended in a 2-2 draw.

Everton needed a last minute free-kick from Lucas Digne to level things up against Watford, despite leading and missing a penalty in the game.

Silva has already shown that he is not shy about raiding his former club.

In the summer, he brought Richarlison to Goodison Park and he has been considering a reunion with Abdoulaye Doucoure, according to The Mirror.

And Doucoure’s headed goal, which put Watford 2-1 up last night, would have caught Silva’s eye.

Roberto Pereyra has enjoyed an excellent year for the Hornets and he continued his fine form last night by sparking a turnaround.

The 27-year-old played a central part in the equalising goal. His shot beat Jordan Pickford comprehensively and he was unfortunate to see it rebound back off the post, although it hit Seamus Coleman and went in afterwards.

And then Pereyra set up Doucoure’s goal with an excellent lofted cross to the back post.

The Argentina international is exactly the type of player Everton need; a versatile attacking midfielder who is comfortable with either foot and can play anywhere behind the striker.

Silva should be considering a reunion with the ex-Juventus man after scouting him firsthand last night.
