Aston Villa

   

Aston Villa regularly have played a 4-3-3 formation this season, however they've only won one game using it which came on the opening day at the emirates. In the absence of Ashley Westwood they chose a 3-5-2 formation in their last win against Manchester City. The other victory which came away to Norwich saw Lambert set out with a flat 4-4-2 formation.


Despite a tough start, Villa have managed 10 points from their 8 matches which puts them 13th in the table going into this one. Attacking wise, they're nothing to write home about besides Benteke's 4 goals so far in the league though Agbonlahor is yet to score a league goal this season so will inevitably end that on Saturday against his favourite club.


Everton

Everton will go into the weekend in 7th place yet again, despite beating Hull City 2-1. However the distance between Everton and Manchester United in 8th place is 4 points this week meaning Everton can't drop any lower even with defeat. The victory over Hull city brought up our total number of goalscorers to 7 with Mirallas and Pienaar bagging the goals. Only Swansea, Chelsea and Arsenal have more goalscorers.



Thankfully, Steven Pienaar returned from injury to take a place on the bench last Saturday meaning that the only injury concern left is to Antolin Alcaraz. For the first time this season we may see our strongest team. Meanwhile, Aston Villa will be without midfielder Gary Gardner, central defender Jores Okore and winger Charles N'zogbia for our visit.

This will be the 215th meeting between the sides. Aston Villa won the first fixture 2-1 at Villa Park in 1888.

I'm more trusting of fellas when they have my cock in their mouth

I think I'm one of the few Evertonians who doesn't mind them too much.

There are just some teams that get under your skin and annoy the fuck out if you.

Think I've had a dislike for them since that game discussed in the ticket thread.

Also, the years when O'Neill was there they just really wound me up. We'd batter them most games yet never seemed to win.

Their crowd and the media seemed to think that they always just missed out on the CL yet they (nearly) always finished below us who finished about 9 points off it!

On this game though I thought the Spurs fixture today was a good preview for us.

They often pressed quite high up, particularly in the first half, causing a few errors from Spurs.

Once Spurs scored though Villa weren't great aside from 10 mins or so after Benteke came on.

Of course Benteke will start against us so they'd expect more of a threat from the start.

Agbonlahor more so.

Needs filed under "Danny Welbeck". Another player who counts his blessings every night that he's managed to somehow pass himself off as a top player for another day.

Obviously he'll score now.

Agbinlahor always scores past us so that's a given. We need to beat these but I think a draw is on the cards


Simply simply lovely

Villa away is generally a hard game.  I can see a draw with both teams playing well.

Agbonlahor is a decent PL player.

I don't think anyone rates him higher than that to be fair!

That Luna tired badly against Townsend.

Might be a game for Deulofeu to take advantage against later in the match.

That Bacuna isnt even a full back as well, he's a winger.
