Everton v Aston Villa: Can Villa do to Everton what they did to Liverpool?


Bookmark and Share

Everton were the big winners in midweek. While Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool all drew, a brace from Leighton Baines against West Brom ensured the Toffees moved to within a point of fourth placed Spurs.

Today they entertain relegation-threatened Aston Villa, with Paul Lambert desperate to lift his side back out of the drop zone. The visitors were simply awful in the first half at home to Newcastle on Tuesday, but came out all guns blazing in the second half and were unfortunate not to pick up a share of the spoils.

Everton and Aston Villa have played out some great games down the years. The two sides bring the best out of each other and most recent meetings have ended in draws, but Everton start this game as red-hot favourites.

Villa head to Merseyside though looking to do to Everton what they did to Liverpool. They beat the Reds 3-1 at Anfield, with Benteke and Weimann on top form. Villa's last defeat at Goodison came in 2006 when James McFadden, Leon Osman and Tim Cahill (2) ran riot and Villa fans will always remember the day Ashley Young broke Everton hearts in the dying minutes to seal a 3-2 win.

Everton have only lost once at home during this campaign and have the bit between their teeth, but can they get the job done and consign Villa to another defeat?
