Aston Villa welcomes Everton in a first game from the third round of the Premier League
Aston Villa welcomes Everton in a first game from the third round of the Premier League. The newcomers from Birmingham will try to win their first points for the season, while Everton will aim for a second win. Let’s take a look at this clash in our English Premier League predictions.
Since being promoted to the Premier League, Aston Villa are not having the best possible start of the season. The former European champions kicked off their campaign with a defeat against Tottenham, which was followed by a home loss from the hands of AFC Bournemouth.
The game against Bournemouth at the Villa Park started pretty bad for the hosts, because after just 12 minutes of playing the visitors already had a two goals lead. Joshua King opened the score for Bournemouth from a penalty kick, while Harry Wilson doubled the lead. Twenty minutes before the end Douglas Luiz scored one goal for Aston Villa, but until the end of the game there were no more goals.
In the same time Everton kicked off their campaign with four points from two games played. After a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace in the first round, Marco Silva’s boys celebrated their first win for the season. The Toffees hosted Watford at the Goodison Park and achieved a 1-0 win. The only goal in the match was scored after just ten minutes of playing, when Bernard put the ball in the net after an assist from Lucas Digne. It was Everton’s first goal for the season.
It’s going to be really interesting to see how this game between Aston Villa and Everton will go. Some might say that the visitors are the obvious favourite here, but in same time Aston Villa are aware that they have to start winning points already. We expect a very intense game in our English Premier League predictions.
