Aston Villa are looking for their first win since returning to the Premier League when they face Everton on Friday Night Football this week.
The Villains have endured a tricky adjustment period in the top flight following defeats to Tottenham and Bournemouth.
Dean Smith’s side earned plenty of plaudits for their display against Spurs, but early goals conceded to Bournemouth will have rung alarm bells at Villa Park.
Everton have been airtight since returning to pre-season action.
The Toffees have drawn 0-0 four times in their last six games – including a handful of pre-season friendlies – and won the remaining pair 1-0.
Marco Silva will be delighted with his team’s resilience at the back despite losing Kurt Zouma in the summer, but will hope for greater attacking threat in the games to come.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…
Neither side has been among the goals in the opening weeks of the season.
Villa have exclusively dealt in worldies – courtesy of John McGinn and Douglas Luiz – while Everton’s only strike came from a terrific solo effort by Bernard.
Smith won’t allow his team to start slowly again, meaning this could be a cagey affair with neither side able to truly grab the game by the scruff of the neck.
Prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Everton
