Aston Villa News and Form

Will Aston Villa get their first points of the season on the board as they play host to Everton on Friday night? They did score the opening goal of their opening game this season, which was out at Tottenham. However, the Villains conceded twice in the last 5 min to end up suffering a 3-1 loss. Defensive errors in their first home game of the season against Bournemouth cost them heavily, as Aston Villa ended up losing that game 2-1. So they can certainly use a lift right about now.

Manager Dean Smith does look to be onto a good thing though and the chances of survival are going to get a good boost when they get all their new summer signings fully integrated into things. There were so many new players arriving in the summer that it naturally could take time for Aston Villa to find their best starting 11 and their form. In last season’s Championship, Aston Villa picked up a home record of W11 D8 L4. The Villains averaged over two goals per home game last season with 74% fixtures at Villa Park going over 2.5 goals. They also averaged over two goals per home fixture. Villa need to get some top flight home form going.

Everton News and Form

After a summer of good signings and strong form at the end of last season, Everton came into the season full of promise. They haven’t quite gotten out of the starting blocks properly  as it has been a quiet start from them. They certainly haven’t lived up to their potential of looking a major threat to the top six. There is time for that to come though after opening with a 0-0 away draw at Crystal Palace.

Everton then took a 1-0 home win over Watford. The Toffees opened the scoring early within 10 min of the start against the Hornets but just couldn’t find the second goal to leave themselves a bit more comfortable. Big summer signing striker Moise Kean is still working his way into life at Everton and has come off the bench in first two games of the season. The huge positive Everton is that they do look very strong in defence.

That is no goal conceded this season and during their run in the last campaign, they were rock solid at the back as well. But they will want to get their goal output going up. Will it start to flow for them in this game against the newly promoted Aston Villa, or will there a trend of low scoring games early in the season continue? Everton struggled to pick up wins away from home during last season’s top-flight campaign. They ended the season with a W5 D4 L9 away record in the top flight.

Aston Villa v Everton Predictions

Everton to win: As if they didn’t know already, Aston Villa are finding out that life in the Premier League is harsh. They are not playing badly but it’s all about those small margins. Everton should have the composure and strengths to grab themselves a narrow win at Villa Park.
