Everton welcome Aston Villa to Goodison Park in the Premier League this evening hoping to secure their first win in three games.

Carlo Ancelotti watched his side lose 3-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend and they face a relegation-threatened Villa in their penultimate home game of the season.

The Villains overcome Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday to give themselves hope in the battle to avoid the drop and find themselves four points behind 17th place Watford with three matches remaining.

Ancelotti can call upon Mason Holgate and Andre Gomes today but Yerry Mina and Fabian Delph will both miss out.

Jarrad Branthwaite, who made his Premier League debut against Wolves, is in contention while Anthony Gordon is hoping to retain his place in the line-up.

Phil Kirkbride and Adam Jones are at Goodison to provide live build-up, commentary, analysis and reaction. You can sends your thoughts to @LivEchoEFC to get involved in proceedings.

Good Afternoon!


Welcome to our live match centre for the visit of Aston Villa.

Everton really need to put in a performance today, don’t they?

But who will Carlo Ancelotti turn to? Will he mix things up in midfield after the showing at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday?

We’ll find out with team news in shortly over 90 minutes.

In the meantime, why not find out who Phil Kirkbride, Adam Jones and I selected for our predicted line-ups.

(Spoiler: Jarrad Branthwaite, Beni Baningime and Moise Kean all get the nod in mine!)

Feel free to join in the action tonight by sending your thoughts to @SamCarroll0. I look forward to it already!
