Steven Gerrard’s men disappointed their fans on their debut in the new season. On the road at Bournemouth, they were defeated 0-2 and were quite indisposed for the entire 90 minutes. It should be noted that their opponent returned to the elite this season, and many experts characterized them as one of the weakest teams in the entire league. That is why the disappointment is even greater.
Aston Villa kept all important players between the two seasons. There are still Coutinho, Watkins, Ings, Digne, Douglas Luiz, and as the main reinforcement Diego Carlos, who covers the position of central back, arrived from Sevilla. He should bring additional stability and solidity to the defensive line and strengthen it further.
The Villans have an experienced and quality roster this season and should be among the teams in the upper part of the table. They finished the last campaign in a lowly 14th place, and probably the expectations of all employees at the club are much higher for the upcoming one.
Everton players barely avoided relegation last season. They played quite poorly and never managed to maintain good form in continuity, so the results were bad.
This team from Liverpool was defeated by Chelsea 0-1 in the first round. Frank Lampard’s team failed to avoid defeat against an objectively stronger opponent. It is evident that Everton’s game is still not at a high level and this coach will have to work hard so that his players play well.
In addition, two defenders were injured in that match, so Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina will be absent indefinitely. They join Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Andros Townsend, who have been on the absent list for a long time, which is a huge handicap for the manager.
During this week, the club signed two new players. Center back Conor Coady arrived on loan from Wolves, while Amadou Onana arrived from Lille in the defensive midfielder position. Both are expected to make their debuts on Saturday.
These two teams met twice last season, and Aston Villa was better both times. The Villans won 3-0 at home and 1-0 away.
Aston Villa (4-3-2-1): Martinez; Digne, Diego Carlos, Konsa, Cash; Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Kamara; Coutinho, Bailey; Watkins
Everton (3-4-3): Pickford; Keane, Tarkowski, Coady; Patterson, Iwobi, Onana, Mykolenko; McNeil, Gray, Gordon
Although they did not excel at the opening, we expect that the Aston Villa players will play much better in front of their fans and we believe that they will register their first victory in the new season.
