Aston Villa vs Everton preview: EFL Cup predictions, tips, odds and team news
Aston Villa and Everton go head to head in an EFL Cup clash on Wednesday at 7:45pm (UK time).
Aston Villa vs Everton odds
It’s been a far more mixed start to the season for Aston Villa, perhaps owing to now having to balance European commitments. Unai Emery’s side have three wins and two defeats from five Premier League games so far, while they suffered a disappointing 3-2 loss away at Legia Warsaw in their first Conference League group match after cruising past Hibs 8-0 on aggregate in their qualifier. They’ll now look to the EFL Cup for some momentum following, of course, Sunday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea.
As for Everton, they’ll head to the midlands full of confidence following a much-needed 3-1 win away at Brentford. It was the first Premier League win of the season for the Toffees after taking just one point from their previous five games, but you wouldn’t have known it as Sean Dyche’s side played Brentford off the park in a lively, creative performance. Everton had to come from behind to beat lowly Doncaster Rovers in the previous round of this competition, but can they channel their performance in London on Saturday to keep this cup run going?

Aston Villa vs Everton match tip
As mentioned, Aston Villa are enjoying an excellent run against the Toffees. However, after Everton’s win at Brentford, they’ll be full of confidence and it wouldn’t take much for them to cause a shock here. At the very least, expect them to keep up their three-game scoring run away from home going, though Aston Villa have bagged a whopping 21 goals across all competitions so far this season and should have too much firepower.
Aston Villa vs Everton Bet-Builder tip
After a slow start following his move from the Chicago Fire, Jhon Duran is finally finding his feet in English football. The Colombian starlet now has three goals across all competitions this season, including two in the Premier League, one of which came against Everton in August. Duran should fuel a game that promises goals.
