    Everton vs. Aston Villa: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    benteke weimannEverton (4-2-3-1): Howard, Stones, Jagielka, Distine, Baines, Barkley, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Lacina Traore’, Pienaar

    A miserable Merseyside Derby can be forgotten with a good display against Villa at Goodison Park.  They will however be without Romelu Lukaku, so expect to see new signing Lacina Traore’ lead the line with Ross Barkley ‘in the hole’ behind the Ivorian.

    Aston Villa (4-3-3): Guzan, Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Bertrand, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor

    Paul Lambert’s tactics will depend on the availability of Gabriel Agbonlahor, without the pacey Englishman Villa will probably opt for a 4-4-1-1 with Westwood playing behind Christian Benteke.  Their 4-3 midlands derby win over West Brom will give the Villans alot of confidence heading into the fixture.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    Paul Merson may be a pundit now but look what he did to Aston Villa back in the day!

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    mirallas

    Classified as a midfielder in the Official Fantasy Premier League game, Kevin Mirallas actually plays more like a forward in Roberto Martinez’s 4-3-3 system.  And with his fellow Belgian Romelu Lukaku injured, most of Everton’s craft and guile will come from the pacey winger.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Everton have lost just one of their last 20 Barclays Premier League games at Goodison Park (W14 D5 L1).

    In Aston Villa’s last 10 Barclays Premier League away games they have either conceded exactly two goals (six times) or kept a clean sheet.

    Villa have suffered just seven defeats in their last 25 Premier League away games (W9 D9 L7).

    Aston Villa have lost none of the last seven Premier League visits to Goodison Park (W2 D5) but the last four in a row have been draws.

    Indeed, nine of the last 14 Premier League meetings between the two sides have ended as draws.

    Gabriel Agbonlahor has scored seven Premier League goals against Everton, more than he has managed against any other opponent in the competition.

    Leon Osman has scored six Premier League goals against Aston Villa, more than he has managed against any other opponent in the competition.

    Grant Holt has scored in three of his four Premier League appearances against Everton.

    Everton are looking for their 300th Premier League win, something Aston Villa achieved in midweek against West Brom.

    Christian Benteke has scored in three consecutive Premier League appearances after going 11 Premier League games without one.
