11th placed Everton and 14th placed Aston Villa will both be looking to break back into the Premiership top ten this weekend when they meet at Villa Park.
Matches between Everton and Aston Villa have produced numerous stalemates over recent years, with six of their last ten fixtures ending in draws. Villa has won three of these encounters, while Everton has achieved a solitary win – and hasn’t won at Villa Park once during this period.
Everton’s last visit to Villa Park saw the Toffees lose 1-0.
Aston Villa’s struggle to find consistency continues, with the club winning two, losing two and drawing one of its last five matches. The club’s see-saw form was highlighted by a sensational 3-1 away win against Chelsea which was followed by a 2-0 loss at home to Swansea.
Aston Villa has scored 7 goals in its last five matches. Defence has done a good enough job at keeping the team ahead, with 5 goals conceded in the same period.
Everton’s form looks somewhat similar, with two wins, two losses and a single win on record for the last five matches – albeit with an absence of wins against top ranked sides.
Everton is struggling up front this season, as is demonstrated by the 5 goals scored by the side in the past five matches. Defence has help up well despite the lack of pressure up front, conceding 5 goals during this period.
Aston Villa looks a worthy favourite for this fixture. Everton doesn’t have a great record at Villa Park, isn’t knocking over top teams, and has its own problems finding consistent form. In the meantime, Villa has a stronger attack, will be more confident in the wake of their defeat of Chelsea, and have home advantage.
History suggests that this match has a good chance of going to a draw. With this in mind our Aston Villa vs Everton betting tip is to take a look at the lay betting markets at Betfair, where a lay bet on Everton will pay off on the Villa win or a draw.
