History of the Aston Villa v Everton fixture

Everton face a trip to Aston Villa at Villa Park at tea-time on Monday, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 94 games played, Blues have recorded 26 wins, and Aston Villa have come away with 45 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Aston Villa's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Villans have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Everton's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Blues have hit 4 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Aston Villa find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 17 points from their 17 matches. Everton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 17 points from 17 matches.
