Watford captain Troy Deeney has warned Everton forward Richarlison that he will be the enemy when the Toffees face off against the Hornets in the Premier League on Monday.
Richarlison was on the books of the Hornets last season. He was brought to Vicarage Road during the summer of 2017 from Brazilian club Fluminense while the club was under the management of current Toffees boss Marco Silva.
Upon taking over at Everton last summer, Silva reunited with the 21-year-old in a £35 million deal which could rise to £50 million. Richarlison has so far been one of the outstanding performers for Silva’s troops this term as he has so far gone on to score several goals from 13 League games.
He has also gone on to win himself selection to the Brazilian national team through his performances this season. With home advantage and better recent form, Everton will go into the match against the Hornets on Monday as the favourites to win.
The one player who could be a major threat to Javi Gracia’s side is Richarlison. Deeney has warned his former team-mate that he will be the enemy on the day.
As quoted by the official Watford website, the 30-year-old Deeney said:
“Business-wise it was a no-brainer for the money.
“You can see his potential daily, his enthusiasm for football is up there and he’s now getting the national team looking at him.
“But, I don’t want to talk him up too much because I’m going to have to smash him on Monday!
“On Monday he’s the enemy.”
