Tip Everton - Aston Villa
Prediction published on January 19, 2022 at 6:29 PM - Modified on January 19, 2022 at 7:29 PM
Everton’s troubles continued with the away loss at struggling Norwich City and they will hope things get better when they play host to Aston Villa. The hosts go to this game on 19 points, in 16th place while Villa have 23 points in 13th place. Everton have managed just two wins in their last 14 matches. They are coming from a 2-1 loss to Norwich which saw manager Rafa Benitez sacked; that was their third loss in five matches. Everton have failed to score in three of their last 10 matches and seven of the 10 have produced over 2.5 goals. Both teams have actually scored in each of their last seven matches. In the Premier League, Everton have one win since October 2021and have lost nine times in that period. They go into this game with just one clean sheet in the last 10 league matches.
Aston Villa are going into this game winless in the last four matches, and they have suffered three losses in that period. They are coming from a positive result, rising from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Manchester United. While a win would have been sweeter, it is the manner in which they picked the one point that will give them a boost. Philippe Coutinho, the new signing from Barcelona scored on his Villa debut and after coming from the bench, he will be expected to start here. Another new signing, Lucas Digne also had a decent game, and will be lining up against former employers. Villa have one clean sheet in five matches, and failed to score in just one of the five matches. Three of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and they’ve scored twice in two of the five matches. In those five matches, Villa have conceded two or more in three, and they are unbeaten in five matches against Everton, winning three.

Conclusion Everton - Aston Villa
Everton’s run in the league hasn’t been great and they are set to have a third manager in a span of two years following the sacking of Rafa Benitez. The new man in interim charge has a lot to do to stabilize the team. One area he will have to focus on is in defence, having managed just one clean sheet in 10 league games. For both sides actually, it has been porous and they go to this game from high scoring outings and we are backing this too to produce over 2.5 goals.
