Aston Villa host Everton in a Premier League fixture on Sunday that has already been set back one day due to Covid-19

Villa’s squad has been affected by a Covid-19 outbreak at the club that resulted in the youth team playing against Liverpool in last week’s FA Cup tie.

Manager Dean Smith will be hoping to have the majority of his players back for this clash, with Villa looking to move closer to the top six.

However, Everton are on the up after winning five of their last six Premier League outings – which includes Tuesday’s 2-1 triumph at Wolves.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti still has aspirations of keeping up in the title race but the Toffees could find it difficult here on Sunday.

Aston Villa v Everton team news

Aston Villa: It is not known how many players have been affected by Covid-19 in the Villa camp in recent days but manager Smith will be hoping to have the majority of his players back.

After all, that was the reason for Villa not fielding a full-strength squad against Liverpool last time out, while their midweek game against Tottenham was postponed. Forward Wesley remains sidelined with injury. 

Everton: Dominic Calvert-Lewin may miss this tie with a hamstring injury after also sitting out the win over Wolves.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti already has Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Allan sidelined.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Everton

Villa’s preparation for this game may end up being non-existent due to coronavirus affecting at least nine members of the squad, and so Smith’s side could be somewhat unorthodox on Sunday.

This clash has already been pushed back in the hope of it being able to take place – and that will likely only help a well-rested Everton in their preparations for the encounter.

Villa are in good form but Everton have rediscovered their groove following a pre-Christmas blip and should be good for at least a point here.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Everton
