Aston Villa vs Everton

12:30 CET / 07:30 ET / 21:30 CEST

Questions have already been raised about manager Steven Gerrard’s influence on Aston Villa after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at newcomers Bournemouth, while Everton put on a respectable performance in a 1-0 home loss to Chelsea.

A good omen for former England midfielder Gerrard, who was appointed mid-last season, is that Villa are unbeaten in six appearances of the game and have kept a clean sheet in each of their three home games against the Toffees in that run.
