Everton v Aston Villa team news

Everton: Fabian Delph remains a concern and may miss this clash, while Andre Gomes sat out the loss to Wolves on Sunday.

Yerry Mina lasted just 31 minutes at Molineux before being subbed off with a muscle problem, and may be omitted here. Mason Holgate could return from a knock.

Aston Villa: Matt Targett returned to action last time out against Crystal Palace and should start here in place of the injured Neil Taylor.

Kourtney Hause missed the last game with an injury in the warm-up but could be back for Thursday, but Wesley and Tom Heaton are not expected to make the squad.

Our prediction: Everton v Aston Villa

It really is now or never for Villa who beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at the weekend. They desperately need a repeat performance of the win over Everton from earlier this season, where they were clinical on the break.

Defensively Villa have been out of sorts this summer, but Everton themselves have managed just four goals since Project Restart.

This should be a tight game and we shouldn’t be surprised if it ends with the points shared.

Our prediction: Everton 1-1 Aston Villa

(Draw to 1-1: 13/2 at Bet365)
