Aston Villa vs Everton Team News
The Villans have fallen to defeat in their first two games of the new campaign after securing promotion back to the top-flight by means of a playoff the last triumph over Derby County in May. Dean Smith’s side spent over £100m throughout the summer transfer window, yet lost 3-1 to Tottenham Hotspur on opening day, before going down 2-1 at home to Bournemouth.
Aston Villa lost their second back to back game at home to Bournemouth a week ago so they will be desperate to get their first points here.
Boss Dean Smith is probably not going to make any extreme improvements however he might be tempted to bring Jota into the side for El Ghazi or Trezeguet.
The environment for this Friday night broadcast match at Villa Park will be brilliant and Smith will demand a fast begin from his side.
Everton’s starting to the year has been undeniable all the more promising, with the Toffees as of now unbeaten and sitting on four points. They have scarcely been productive – Bernard gathered their only goal of the season against Watford a weekend ago – however, supporters will be pleased to see Marco Silva’s recruits people show strength in defence.
Everton remain the only team in the league yet to surrender a goal as they have made a strong begin to their campaign with one win and a draw.
They welcome back Schneiderlin after suspension and there is a decent chance the midfielder will return to the side for Gbamin.
Digne is relied upon to shake off a knock to begin here while Delph has come back to training and could be accessible for selection.
Aston Villa vs Everton Head to Head (h2h)
As two bastions of English football, Villa and Everton have met on numerous events over the course of history. The overall record is all around balanced, with the latter collecting two more wins than their rivals, who have secured the triumph 80 times.
In any case, the Merseysiders have had much the better of it in the last decade. The Midlands side have beaten the Toffees only twice in their 16 latest meetings and have lost five of the last six.
A clinical performance from Everton left Villa staring relegation dead in the face when these two last locked horns. Ramiro Funes Mori, Aaron Lennon and Romelu Lukaku gave the guests a three-goal advantage, with a late Rudy Gestede relief doing little to lift the anguish at Villa Park.

Aston Villa vs Everton Match Prediction
Villa boss Smith knows the significance of this fixture, on the grounds that despite the fact that his squad will at present be light after a successful summer of recruitment, that bubble can blast all around rapidly.
Should they lose to Everton, worries about the capacities of specific signings will be raised, much like what occurred with Fulham the last term. When the team question themselves and certainty is sapped, a slump is simple.
A draw is more than acceptable for Villa; they should go for strength in defence and energy in midfield to get it. Silva’s side surely have the quality to break their adversaries, yet presently can’t seem to demonstrate an incredible edge.
In the event that the Villans carry a bit of steel to the experience and work as one cohesive unit, the Toffees will battle to defeat them.
Villa have discovered that life in the top flight isn’t simple and this is another extreme fixture for them. Everton are looking hard to beat and keeping in mind that they are not actually firing on all cylinders going ahead, they have the quality to uncover Villa here as they change in accordance with life in the Premier League.
