Will Aston Villa find some form?

Dean Smith’s side have enjoyed a mixed start to this season, amassing four points from their four fixtures so far.

Last weekend, the Villans were beaten 3-0 at Stamford Bridge by Chelsea, Tyrone Mings massively at fault for the second goal.

The scoreline suggests it was a very one-sided affair, but Villa actually accrued a higher xG: 1.37 – 1.35.

Not often that happens in a 3-0 loss.

Before this, Villa lost 3-2 at Watford – looking shambolic for 70 minutes of that one, beat Newcastle 2-0 and drew 1-1 with Brentford.

So, it is very hard to gauge if Aston Villa are actually any good or not.

This is their third season back in the Premier League, surviving on the final day in 2020 but finishing six places higher in 11th last time around.

So, despite the sale of Jack Grealish, the expectation was that they’d kick on this season and finish in the top half, possibly even threatening the European spots.

After this game, and before the next international window, Villa will play Chelsea in the Carabao Cup followed by league trips to Manchester United and Spurs.

This continues a tough run of fixtures, so they’ll be desperate to claim three points here.

Villa are unbeaten in four league meetings with Everton, despite only winning two of their 15 Premier League encounters before this.

Will they continue that little unbeaten streak at Villa Park?

Will Everton continue their unbeaten start?

As for Everton, it may be anathema to say but could Rafa Benítez be winning the fans over?

This summer, the Spaniard became just the second man to manage both Everton and Liverpool.

The first, William Edward Barclay, was manager of the clubs between 1888-89 and then 1892–1896 respectively.

Benítez won four trophies with Liverpool, including the Champions League and, in 2007, said Everton play ‘like a small club’.

Thus, Rafa was never going to be the most popular appointment but, since the games have started, he could hardly have wished for a better start.

On Monday night, the Blues fell 1-0 down to Burnley, but roared back in electrifying style.

Michael Keane equalised with a header just six minutes later, before the Toffees scored twice more in the subsequent six minutes to win 3-1.

First, an Andros Townsend thunderbolt put them ahead.

Then, just 13 seconds after kick off, Abdoulaye Doucouré’s inch-perfect through-ball played in Demarai Gray who finished coolly.

This leaves Everton fourth at the start of the weekend with ten points, after beating Southampton and Brighton, alongside a draw at Leeds.

In both victories over Burnley and Southampton, they came from behind to win, something the Blues had previously only managed twice since December 2017 in the Premier League.

Ten points, ten goals scored and just four conceded; Everton fans can’t ask for much more than that can they?

After this, they will face QPR in the League Cup before a home game against pointless Norwich and a trip to Manchester United.

If their unbeaten record remains intact after that, Benítez’s stock will surely rise just a little bit higher.

First, Everton travel to a ground where they’ve won three of their last six league visits.

This is quite the turn-around as, before this, the Toffees had only won three of their last 29 trips to Villa Park, losing 14.

Will the Merseysiders continue their positive start?

Aston Villa were really hamstrung as Stamford Bridge last weekend by the fact that two key players were unavailable due to quarantine rules.

But, both Emilianos are expected to be back for this one, with Martínez returning in goal at Jed Steer’s expense.

Dean Smith switched to a back three last weekend but that was to match-up against Chelsea, so will surely return to his preferred four here.

Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe could be the odd man out with Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings the usual centre-back duo.

John McGinn and Olympic Gold Medal winner Douglas Luiz will start in front of the back four.

In the more advanced role, the other returning Emi, Buendía, will be looking for his second Villa goal after netting in their last home game against Brentford.

Out wide, Smith has options but Leon Bailey’s mini-cameo at Chelsea last weekend should earn him a start.

The Jamaica international is yet to show his best since joining from Bayer Leverkusen for around £35 million.

On the other flank, Anwar El Ghazi could get the nod over Bertrand Traoré and Ashley Young; Trézéguet is out with a knee injury.

In attack, Smith has tried playing a front two but Danny Ings could lead the line alone with Ollie Watkins missing out.

Ings has scored five Premier League goals against Everton, more than against any other side.

He’s also scored against the Toffees for three different clubs, Burnley, Liverpool and Southampton, so will be looking to make that four here.

Will the Villa Park faithful be celebrating a win?

Everton team news vs Aston Villa

As for Everton, Rafa Benítez switched to a back three/five on Monday, but only after he changed the system did his side vastly improve.

So, it could be all change in front of Jordan Pickford, who’s looking for his second clean sheet of the season.

Against Burnley, Ben Godfrey was the sacrificial centre-back, suggesting scorer Michael Keane and Yerry Mina will keep their places.

In midfield, a key feature of Everton’s play this season has been Abdoulaye Doucouré bursting forward.

The Frenchman scored against Southampton on the opening day and provided an assist at Leeds and two more on Monday.

Allan will continue as the more defensive midfielder but André Gomes could also come in, just as he did on the hour mark last time out.

Out wide will be two summer signings: Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend.

Gray has been a revelation, scoring in Everton’s last three games.

His best-ever scoring season came in 2018/19, with Leicester, when he netted four times, and the attacker can match that already here.

As for Townsend, his wonder-strike against Burnley was his first goal in the Premier League since 19 September 2020 at Old Trafford.

The one-year anniversary of that is the day after this Villa game, so he’ll be relieved that such an unwanted milestone won’t come to pass.

These two will have to continue chipping in because Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently out with an unspecified injury for an unknown length of time.

So, Richarlison will attempt to fill that rather large void through the middle, despite the fact that he prefers to play from the left.

There are more options now, though, after Salomón Rondón made his debut off the bench against Burnley.

Benítez has signed the big Venezuelan three times in his career, after also bringing him to Newcastle and then taking him to Dàlián Yifang in China.

Will Everton’s unbeaten start continue?
