After four games of the 2021/22 Premier League season, there are five teams still unbeaten with four of those tied on 10 points. Everton are one of those four teams, having won three and drawn one game so far, only behind early league leaders Manchester United on goal difference. The Toffees’ fans may have been sceptical over the appointment of Rafa Benitez over the summer due to his Liverpool links, but the Spaniard has Everton scoring for fun, with only Man Utd (11) netting more in the Premier League this season. Everton started the season with a 3-1 win over Southampton in which they came from behind and were not derailed by a 2-2 draw with Leeds, recovering to beat Brighton and Burnley either side of the international break.
Hosts Aston Villa, meanwhile, haven’t had the greatest of starts and currently sit 11th. Dean Smith’s side didn’t have a relatively tough start to the new campaign on paper, opening with a trip to newly-promoted Watford having spent the summer bolstering their squad with quality. However, they were shocked 3-2 and despite a 2-0 win over Newcastle the following weekend, Aston Villa are yet to really get going. Another negative result against a newly-promoted side came before the international break as Brentford left Villa Park with a point, and they returned by losing 3-0 to Chelsea – though that result wasn’t too fair to Aston Villa who had caused the Blues problems.

Aston Villa vs Everton: Match Stats
One of the main men behind Everton’s start to the season is Demarai Gray, who finally looks at home at Goodison Park after his previous Premier League struggles with Leicester. After drawing a blank in his Everton debut, the Englishman has gone on to score in each of his past three league matches, including the final goal of the 3-1 win over Burnley last weekend.
While Everton fans will be happy about their start to the season, the Toffees have also been fun to watch for the neutral. Three of their four Premier League games so far this season have seen four goals scored, including two 3-1 wins and that thrilling 2-2 draw with Leeds.
