Even the most optimistic of Aston Villa fans will have found their 5-1 opening weekend defeat at the hands of Newcastle a tough watch, and now Villa Park expects a response from Unai Emery's side, who host Everton on Sunday.


Villa were not as bad as the scoreline made out, their praise from the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson is proof of that, but the pressure is on them now to prove that the pre-season talk of lofty ambition was more than just talk.

Though it would be foolish to underestimate anyone in the top flight, a home game against an Everton side that many have earmarked for another relegation battle looks like a good opportunity to get things back on track.

The Toffees were unfortunate to see Michael Keane's goal ruled out due to a soft foul on Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno in last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park, but they were wasteful in front of goal – ultimately paying the price for failing to capitalise on their 19 attempts.

Sean Dyche will want to look at the positives, and Everton did create plenty of chances, but they will have to be more clinical to come away from Sunday's game with a result and to have any hopes of staying clear of the relegation dogfight this term.
