To Win (90mins)
Aston Villa 23/10 
Draw 23/10 
Everton 12/10

A couple of seasons ago a meeting between Villa and Everton may have been decisive in terms of European qualification.

As it stands, only the Toffees are dreaming of Europe, while Villa are hoping to avoid another relegation scrap.

The return of Christian Benteke did little to inspire Paul Lambert’s side as they surrendered meekly against Spurs last time out.

On the flip side, Steven Pienaar made an almost instant impact for Roberto Martinez on his return from injury, scoring just 27 seconds after coming on.

Betting Prediction: Everton
Four of the last five meetings have ended in a draw, but it was the Toffees that triumphed in the corresponding fixture last season and I’m backing them to do the same again at 12/10.
