Welcome to our Everton vs Aston Villa preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Everton are in 9th place in the League. Their 3 losses this season have been against Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. In other words teams that are disputing the top positions in the Premier league. They now need to step it up and try to move up the table. Aston Villa are having their worst season in years. But their last Premier league match offered some hope as the held Manchester City to a goalless draw. Five consecutive losses preceded that and explains why they find themselves at the bottom of the league. They need to come away with at least a point from this match.
