Friday Night Football: Aston Villa vs Everton

Friday Night Football: Aston Villa vs Everton - Match Preview and Odds
Match Preview and Odds

The Premier League’s new Friday night football tradition continues this week with Aston Villa hosting Everton at Villa Park. In what is the most played fixture in English top-flight history we at Freebet.com preview the match, offering match odds, team news and betting tips. 

 

Hosts, Aston Villa, are yet to earn a point since returning to the Premier League this season, losing back-to-back games firstly away at Tottenham Hotspur before losing at home against Bournemouth. Dean Smith’s side are one of just four top-flight sides yet to register a point this season. Midfielder, Jack Grealish, is now the holder of a rather unwanted record. Grealish has lost 20 consecutive Premier League games, a run stretching back to the 2014/15 season. 

 

Everton’s defensive strength 

 

Friday’s visitors, Everton, are the only Premier League team yet to concede a goal, following up their 0-0 draw away at Crystal Palace on the opening weekend with a 1-0 win against Watford at Goodison Park. Only Manchester City (13) have kept more Premier League clean sheets than Everton (12) so far in 2019. The Toffees have not started a league campaign with three successive clean sheets since 1912. If you fancy Everton to extend their impressive start to the season then head on over the BetVictor. The popular bookmakers are offering unmatched odds of 7/2 on Everton to win to nil away at Aston Villa on Friday night. 

 

Everton have an extra incentive ahead of their trip to Villa Park as three points will see them leapfrog cross-city rivals, Liverpool, at the Premier League’s summit. Everton have not topped the Premier League table in twelve years. 

 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is set to keep his place up front for Everton ahead of summer signing, Moise Kean. However, the England under-21 international will need to find the back of the net sooner rather than later if he is to retain his place in the Everton starting eleven. Calvert-Lewin has not scored a Premier League goal since March 9th but could end that barren spell at Villa Park. You can back Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score first against Aston Villa at 13/2 with Bet365. Alternatively, you can get on the Everton forward to score at any time at 13/5 with 888sport, Smarkets and Unibet. 

 

Goals galore for Aston Villa 

 

Aston Villa may remain point-less after two games in the Premier League but Dean Smith’s side have scored in both matches since returning to the top-flight. With the game set to be shown live on Sky Sports, viewers will be hopeful of a goal-fest. Get your weekend off to a flyer by lumping on both teams to score at 7/10 with William Hill.
