Everton will welcome Aston Villa at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon as both teams look to go all out in search of the three points. The Toffees suffered a 2-1 defeat against Norwich City last weekend which led to the sacking of Rafael Benitez. In contrast, the Villans managed to secure a hard-fought 2-2 draw versus Manchester United in their last league outing. Hence, they will be confident about earning a win on the road this weekend.

Everton vs Aston Villa: Talking Tactics

Everton‘s caretaker manager, Duncan Ferguson will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to stay in the game for as long as they can so that they can grind out a positive result in front of their home supporters.

Steven Gerrard will probably opt for a 4-3-2-1 formation as he instructs his players to create enough chances to win this Premier League clash at Merseyside.

Fabian Delph, Allan and Jarrad Branthwaite are all major doubts for this game. Tom Davies will definitely miss this clash due to a thigh injury.

Everton Predicted XI

Pickford, Coleman, Godrey, Keane, Mykolenko, Doucoure, Allan, Andre Gomes, Gordon, Calvert-Lewin, Gray

Aston Villa

John McGinn will return from suspension for this game but Gerrard will be sweating on the fitness of Ezri Konsa, who is a significant concern for this game.

Aston Villa Predicted XI

Martinez, Cash, Hause, Mings, Digne, McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey, Buendia, Coutinho, Watkins

Key Men


Dominic Calvert-Lewin will once again be Everton’s best hope for a goal up top. Both Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey need to step up and give a good account of themselves on the defensive end of the field if the Toffees are to come out on top this weekend.

Aston Villa

Both Emiliano Buendia and Philippe Coutinho will share most of the creative burden for the Villans in the final third. It will also be a big game for John McGinn who will be eager to impress on his return from suspension.
