THE PREDICTION

Everton are coming off a miserable loss at Wolves following which both manager Carlo Ancelotti and skipper Seamus Coleman hammered the attitude of the players. They will be demanding a big response here which will be needed if they are to match Aston Villa’s drive and motivation. Dean Smith’s men are fighting for their lives and desperately need a result, but the timing of this game may work against them. Everton have to respond and should do, so despite several absentees, expect the hosts to take the minimum of a point if not all three.
