Aston Villa vs. Everton: Premier League – Match Preview

Aston Villa will be looking for their first points of the season when they host Everton on Friday evening.

Two early goals cost Villa against Bournemouth last weekend, with Joshua King and Harry Wilson scoring the goals.

Douglas Luiz pulled one back late on, however they couldn’t rally to earn a point.

Everton have claimed four points from their first two games of the season, edging past Watford last time out.

Bernard’s early goal was the difference and Everton remain the only side yet to concede a goal this term.

Match history
Everton have won six of the last eight league meetings against Villa, including both games in the 15-16 campaign.

Team news
After back to back defeats, Villa could make a few changes, with Frederic Guilbert and Jota in line for starts.
