Week 3 of the EPL will kick off on Friday when Aston Villa hosts Everton. The last time these teams met was in the 2015-2016 EPL season. Everton went 2-0 against Aston Villa in that particular season an outscored them 7-1.
Everton got their first win of the EPL season last week when they defeated Watford by a score of 1-0. This was also their first home game of the season and they now will go back on the road.
Everton scored in the 10th minute and got nothing else done the rest of the game. This has to be concerning because they are not finishing with consistency. They had 12 shots against Watford and just 2 of these were on target. They also did not even have majority of possession.
Defensively, Everton looked very good. The only concern is they tend to give their opponent too much possession. Watford had 56% last week and Watford are not exactly a great team. Everton did only allow Watford to take 8 shot, with just 2 shots on target. Do not be surprise if Everton sits back and lets Aston Villa run at them for most of the game. Luckily Villa is not good, so they should be able to hold their own on the defensive side.
Aston Villa lost their 2nd consecutive match last week when they fell 2-1 to AFC Bournemouth.
Aston Villa controlled most of their previous game against Bournemouth, but failed to take advantage until it was too late. They had 63% of the possession and took 22 shot, but only 7 of these were on target and they ended up with only 1 goal. Scoring against Everton will be much harder as they tend to play very defensively.
Aston Villa gave up a penalty kick in the 2nd minute and conceded again in the 12th to go down 2-0 to Bournemouth. This really took the life out of the stadium and ruined the home debut for the Villa side. This next game has the makings of another tight match, so Villa must keep a clean sheet and watch the counter-attack if they want a chance to get their first points of the EPL season.

I do not think Aston Villa can score on the solid back four of Everton, and that will be the difference to an Everton win.
