Everton v Aston Villa live stream, BT Sport, Saturday 1 May, 8pm BST
Everton will be looking to continue their top-four push when they host Aston Villa this weekend.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are not out of the race for the Champions League places just yet. They probably should be, having recently gone five games without a win, but a 1-0 victory over Arsenal last time out leaves them six points adrift of fourth place with a game in hand on the teams above them. Their run-in does not look too difficult on paper - save for a trip to Manchester City on the final day - but the Toffees cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are to secure a first top-four finish since 2005.
A home game against an out-of-form Villa is eminently winnable, but Everton fans will be slightly nervous given their team’s poor record at Goodison Park this term. Only five teams in the division have collected fewer points at their home grounds than the Toffees, who have the fourth-best record on the road. The pressure is on Everton, as defeat here would surely extinguish their top-four hopes.

Villa are in need of a pick-me-up, having fallen out of the race for European qualification after a downturn in form over the last couple of months. Dean Smith’s side have won only one of their last eight fixtures and slipped out of the top half in the process, having been on the cusp of the top six in mid-February. This has still been a season of progress for the Villans, but they will not want it to end with a whimper.
Everton will be without the luckless Jean-Philippe Gbamin, who recently suffered a knee injury having only just returned from a 20-month lay-off. Michael Keane and Abdoulaye Doucoure are also missing for the hosts.
Villa remain without captain and talisman Jack Grealish, while Matty Cash, Morgan Sanson and Trezeguet also on the treatment table. Long-term absentee Wesley Moraes returned in the 2-2 draw with West Brom last weekend and could be involved again here.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch an Everton v Aston Villa live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
