Confirmed: Everton v Aston Villa lineups

Everton Goodison 2

Everton and Aston Villa will take on each other at Goodison Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Toffees will head into this afternoon's game as favourites and the home fans will expect a comfortable win.

Villa are struggling to score goals and are defensively weak, which suggests that the Toffees will be able to breach their backline.

However, Roberto Martinez’s side should not get complacent, as the Villans can make it tough for them if they score an early goal at Goodison Park.

Everton are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 12 matches, as many as seven points behind fourth-place Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Villa currently find themselves at the bottom of the standings with just five points from 12 games, five points behind 17th-place Newcastle United.
