Everton and Aston Villa are both seeking their first wins of the Premier League season

This weekend will see Aston Villa and Everton both seek to secure their first wins of the Premier League 2023/24 season following unfortunate results seven days ago. Villa suffered a brutal 5-1 demolition at the hands of Newcastle, and had to witness their captain Tyrone Mings being taken off on a stretcher just half an hour into the fixture.

They will now prepare to face Everton who lost 1-0 at home to Fulham. The Toffees had a goal ruled out but they are now heading to Birmingham with yet another Premier League defeat, following a season which saw them only narrowly avoid relegation.

Speaking ahead of the match, former Birmingham City star Robbie Savage spoke to Planet Sport to say: “Everton are winless in their last eight Premier League games against Aston Villa and where are their goals going to come from?

“Sean Dyche and his team will feel aggrieved that ruled out goal, absolute nonsense, it should’ve stood. But they go to Villa Park on the back of another defeat in the Premier League. Aston Villa, can they bounce back from that hammering at St James’ Park? They’ve lost Tyrone Mings, but it’s an opportunity now for Pau Torres to come into the side.”
