Aston Villa and Everton will lock horns with each other in the Premier League next weekend. The match between the Villans and the Toffees will be held at Vila Park and is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time next Sunday.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are a big club who did extremely well last season. Things were going horribly wrong under then manager Steven Gerrard, but former Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery changed the entire dynamic. The Villans ended up as high as seventh in the Premier League table last season with 61 points from 38 matches and could play in the UEFA Europa Conference League this campaign.

Villa are expected to challenge for the top six in the Premier League table, but it is going to be hard for the Villans. Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Liverpool, Brighton and Hove Albion, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Brentford and even Fulham all have very strong squads and will make it tough for Villa.

Unai Emery’s side kicked off their new Premier League campaign on a bad note. Villa were hammered 5-1 by Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park in the Premier League this past weekend. It was a very poor display from the Villans, and it was made worse by the long-term injury sustained by central defender Tyrone Mings.

Team News:

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery is likely to deploy a 4-2-3-1 formation against Everton at Villa Park in the Premier League match. Former Arsenal star Emiliano Martinez will be in goal for the Villans. Pau Torres is likely to start at the back due to the injury to Mings. Ollie Watkins will lead the line for Villa. Douglas Luiz will be one of the two sitting midfielders. John McGinn will start for Villa, and so will Lucas Digne.


Everton are a big and established club in the Premier League, but the Toffees have not been doing particularly great for a while now. The Merseyside club almost got relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, and things could be ugly this time around as well.

Sean Dyche’s side kicked off the new Premier League season on a very bad note. The Toffees suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Fulham at Goodison Park this past weekend. It was a very poor display from Everton, who had just 41% of the possession and had nine shots on target.

Everton are lacking a striker at the moment, and the Toffees need to rectify that. While Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still on the books of Everton, he is injured at the moment. Dyche cannot reply on the striker and have to find someone who will score the goals for the Toffees.

Team News:

Everton manager Sean Dyche is likely to deploy a 4-4-1-1 formation against Aston Villa. Neal Maupay will lead the line for the Toffees. England international goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will be in goal for the visiting team. Nathan Patterson and Michael Keane will start for Everton, and so will Ashley Young.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Aston Villa had 6 shots on target against Newcastle United.
  • Aston Villa had 47% of the possession against Newcastle United.
  • Everton took 19 shots against Fulham.
  • Everton had 41% of the possession against Fulham.
  • Everton earned 10 corners against Fulham.


Aston Villa have a much better team than Everton and will also be at home for the Premier League match. While the Toffees will be keen on getting something from the game, Villa will be determined to bounce back from the heavy defeat to Newcastle. It is very likely that the Villans will pick up all three points from the encounter.
