There's something missing when Aston Villa play at home and I just don't fancy them. I don't see when they're going to win a football match at Villa Park. They seem alright away when teams attack them, but when opponents sit back and they have to attack then they struggle. I thought Everton improved against Hull in the second-half last week and this will be a tight game, but I just fancy Everton. It's weird - if this game was at Goodison Park I'd give Villa more of a chance.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2
Aston Villa v Everton
Roberto Martinez has done a really good job at Everton since taking over in the summer. I hear from inside the camp that they are impressed by the way he coaches - that the sessions he puts on are very good.
After leaving Wigan, Martinez has gone to a bigger club and inherited better players collectively and individually, and he is keeping them at the level they were at. His transfer dealings, in and out, have been excellent too.
Aston Villa gave it a good go against Tottenham last weekend and Christian Benteke made a difference for them when he came on in the second half after his injury.
A lot depends on whether Benteke is fit enough to start on Saturday but, if he does play a significant part of the match, then my feeling is this one will be very close.
Lawro's prediction: 1-1
