Aston Villa vs Everton: Predictions
Everton will be looking to continue from where they left off from their 1-0 victory against West Ham on the weekend as Carlo Ancelotti’s looks to strengthen his side’s quest for a place in Europe for next season. However, they will be looking to avoid a second league defeat to Villa in the space of just two weeks.
Villa will have to work for the points the hard way on Friday having suffered in their defeat to Manchester United on the weekend with striker Ollie Watkins being shown a red card in the final few minutes of the game to pile on the misery after failing to leapfrog Leeds United back into the top half of the table.
Three points would see the Toffees climb up the table and into seventh spot as they look to fight off Tottenham Hotspur in the race for Europa League football. Ancelotti’s side hold a game in hand over the Lilywhites who play on Sunday against an out of form Wolves.
Questions still surround the availability of Jack Grealish with the English star sidelined on the weekend as his return from injury continues to frustrate. Villa’s results have undoubtedly worsened without the 25-year-old in the side who has been out of action since February.

Aston Villa vs Everton: Match Stats
Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his second goal in the same number of games following a baron run of games which saw the England striker score just once in seven Premier League games. The24-year-old has netted 16 times this season for the Toffees in the league and found the back of the net in the game between the two sides just two weeks ago.
The Toffees will fancy their chances with Villa forced to play without their main striker and potentially without Jack Grealish once again. In three of their last five Premier League games, Everton have been able to keep a clean sheet which has been boosted with the return of Jordan Pickford.
