EPL Aston Villa vs Everton– Match Prediction

Whatever transpires between now and Saturday, when Everton plays their next game, the starting lineup will be very different from the one that faces Chelsea.

The club’s troubles at center back from the previous season have carried over into the current season due to the injuries sustained by Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina. Two of the three starting center backs won’t be available for the trip to Aston Villa because both are expected to miss a significant amount of time due to injuries.

Salomon Rondon, the only known first-team striker who is healthy, will also be up for a start after missing the season’s opening game due to suspension. However, the Blues signing one player and getting close to two more transfers could represent another essential difference.

When Everton plays Villa, they may have added two new central midfielders. After watching the Chelsea game from the directors’ box, Amadou Onana posed for photos with Blues supporters as the club appeared ready to finalize his transfer from Lille.

Suppose efforts to bring Idrissa Gueye back to Everton result in a successful transfer soon. In that case, Lampard will easily allow Onana time to acclimate to life in the Premier League. If both participate, it will be interesting to see if Lampard chooses to start three central midfielders, with Abdoulaye Doucoure or Alex Iwobi – who once again impressed as Lampard utilized his versatility on Saturday – alongside them, or if he chooses to play two there and switch Anthony Gordon, Alex Iwobi, Demarai Gray, Dele Alli, and Dwight McNeil off Rondon, should Rondon receive the start.

Strengthening Everton’s forward options is crucial in light of Dominic Calvert-injury and Lewin’s, and work to do so is ongoing. As a result, what was already anticipated to be a busy week at Goodison Park might get more active still in the lead-up to the game against Villa.

Team Analysis

Aston Villa

One of the five English clubs to have won the European Cup was this one in the 1981–82 season. Additionally, they have won the European (UEFA) Super Cup once, the Football League First Division seven times, the FA Cup seven times, the League Cup five times, and the League Cup. The team is now rated fifth overall in the history of the English top division.


Everton is now ranked third in all-time point rankings and is the second-longest running club in English top-flight football. The club has won nine Charity Shields, five FA Cups, one European Cup Winners’ Cup, and nine league championships.

Aston Villa starts the weekend in 16th place with zero points, just one spot ahead of Everton, who are equally pointless. Aston Villa enters the game off a heartbreaking 2-0 loss to recently promoted Bournemouth the previous weekend. Going to a newly promoted team’s home on the first day of the season can be challenging, but Aston Villa should have performed better.

After a sluggish start, they gave up a goal after just two minutes. After failing to regain control of the game, Bournemouth added a second goal in the 80th minute to secure the victory.

Looking back to last season, that outcome indicates that Aston Villa has lost all five of its most recent Premier League games. Aston Villa’s record in the previous 12 Premier League games is terrible, with only two victories.

Aston Villa has only won one of their last six games played at Villa Park, according to their home Premier League record. In 2 of their last 13 home league games, they have only kept one clean sheet, and in each of their previous three home games, both teams have scored.

Everton travels to Villa Park after losing 1-0 to Chelsea at home on the first day of the season.

Despite being the home club, Everton entered the game as the underdog and remained competitive until they gave up a penalty soon before halftime. Everton was unable to provide any apparent chances to score goals. Therefore that ended up being the game’s lone goal.

With games from last season included, Everton has only managed one victory out of their last 5 Premier League contests. Everton beat Crystal Palace at home last season, but they have dropped three of their previous four league games.

Everton’s away record in the Premier League is dismal, with just one victory in their last 17 out contests. According to trends, Everton has given up two or more goals in eight of their most recent ten away league games.

There are no reported injuries or suspensions for the team or Aston Villa. Ollie Watkins and Emiliano Brenda will hopefully start after sitting on the bench the previous weekend.
Benjamin Godfrey, Yerry Mina, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Andros Townsend are Everton’s long list of injured players.

Following last weekend’s loss at Bournemouth, Aston Villa will recognize that this is a game it must win. Everton appears to be the ideal opponent given their away performance, and while the Toffees could score, we anticipate that Aston Villa will earn all three points.
