Everton XI manager Marco Silva should pick against Aston Villa

Premiership Picks

Everton will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they face Aston Villa at Villa Park on Friday night.

The Toffees have taken four points from six available to date with their first win of the campaign coming with a 1-0 success against Watford at Goodison Park last weekend.

Now their attentions turn to a clash against the newly-promoted Villans, who have been beaten in both of their games since returning to the top flight.

Everton manager Marco Silva has plenty of competition for places as things stand, but who should he select against Dean Smith’s side?

We take a look below…

Lucas Digne is fully fit following the knock he suffered against the Hornets last time out, so the Merseyside outfit’s back five picks itself right now following two successive clean sheets.

However, there are decisions to be made in midfield and attack, as Silva looks to find the right formula to bring three points home from the Midlands.

Andre Gomes played alongside Jean-Philippe Gbamin on Saturday, but the returning Morgan Schneiderlin should come in for the latter, who is still visibly getting up to speed with life in English football.

The presence of the Frenchman in the middle of the park also gives Gomes a little more freedom going forward, which could be key on the road.

Bernard simply has to start on the left following his goal and performance against Watford, but Silva should make a change on the opposite flank by bringing in Alex Iwobi for Richarlison, who we said earlier this week should be dropped given his current form.

That leaves Gylfi Sigurdsson in the middle while Dominic Calvert-Lewin gets the nod at centre-forward again despite Toffees supporters on Twitter being hugely impressed by Moise Kean’s cameo against Javi Gracia’s men – the former Juventus man should be saved to come on and stretch the Villa defence in the latter stages.
