It’s been a season of disappointment for the Toffees and they find themselves in a scrap at the bottom of the table.
But in recent weeks, optimism has grown and there’s a real feel-good factor around Goodison Park.
Everton are one point above the drop zone heading into the Watford clash - but could move further clear of danger should 18th-placed Leeds United fall to defeat against Chelsea.
For the trip to Watford, Lampard will be without key defenders Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey, along with Donny van de Beek.
However, the Hornets - who are already relegated - could have as many as 13 players absent with top-scorer Emmanuel Dennis and talisman Ismaila Sarr confirmed absentees.
That could see Lampard make changes to his side in terms of personnel and formation.
Here’s how we think Everton will start - in a 4-3-3 system having played 5-4-1 formation against Leicester.
