Two sides in contrasting form face off at Goodison Park when a Sean Dyche-inspired Everton face struggling Aston Villa.

Dyche’s appointment as Toffees boss has sparked an upturn in form, with the Merseyside club winning two of their last three games.

He will become just the fifth permanent Everton manager to win his first three home league games in charge if his side claim three points against Villa, and could be the first to do so without conceding a goal, following 1-0 wins over Arsenal and Leeds.

Villa suffered an agonising late defeat to league leaders Arsenal last time out, their third loss in a row following setbacks against Leicester and Manchester City.

Unai Emery’s side have conceded 11 goals in that time, but history is on their side  - the Birmingham club are unbeaten in all seven of their meetings with Everton since returning to the Prmeier League in 2019, and are gunning for a fourth consecutive victory in this fixture.

Kick-off is at 3.00pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Team news

Everton are unchanged from last weekend's win over Leeds, with Sean Dyche naming the following starting 11: (4-5-1) Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman (captain), Conor Coady, James Tarkowski, Vitaliy Mykolenko; Alex Iwobi, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil; Neal Maupay

Unai Emery makes three changes to the Villa team which started the loss to Arsenal: Lucas Digne, Leon Bailey and Jacob Ramsey come in for Alex Moreno, Emi Buendia and the injured Philippe Coutinho. The visitors line up as follows: (4-2-2-2) Emi Martinez; Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Lucas Digne; Douglas Luiz, Boubacar Kamara; John McGinn (captain), Jacob Ramsey; Leon Bailey, Ollie Watkins

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
