THE TEAM NEWS

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa lost their second consecutive game at home to Bournemouth last week so they will be desperate to get their first points here.
  • Boss Dean Smith is unlikely to make any radical changes but he may be tempted to bring Jota into the side for El Ghazi or Trezeguet.
  • The atmosphere for this Friday night televised match at Villa Park will be excellent and Smith will demand a fast start from his side.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Heaton; Elmohamady, Engels, Mings, Taylor; McGinn, Douglas Luiz; Trezeguet, Grealish, El Ghazi; Wesley

Unavailable: Chester (Injured), Kodjia (Injured)

Doubtful:

EVERTON

  • Everton remain the only team in the league yet to concede a goal as they have made a solid start to their campaign with one win and a draw.
  • They welcome back Schneiderlin after suspension and there is a good chance the midfielder will come back into the side for Gbamin.
  • Digne is expected to shake off a knock to start here while Delph has returned to training and could be available for selection.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne; Andre Gomes, Schneiderlin; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin

Unavailable: Delph (Injured)

Doubtful: Baines (Injured), Digne (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Villa have found that life in the top flight is not easy and this is another tough fixture for them. Everton are looking difficult to beat and while they are not exactly firing on all cylinders going forward, they have the quality to expose Villa here as they adjust to life in the Premier League.
