Everton vs Aston Villa Live Stream, Betting Odds, Match Preview – Martinez to come unstuck at Goodison?
Its Everton v Aston Villa, with the latest live streaming schedule as we bring you the latest betting odds and match preview from Goodison today.
Fourth from bottom Everton will go in search of only their second win of the season when they welcome Aston Villa to Goodison Park later today.
Roberto Martinez men have made a slow start to the season, losing three times already in their first seven games. Those defeats have come in their last five games with Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Manchester United all managing to pick up three points against the toffees.

A porous defence minus the talents of Seamus Coleman in recent weeks has proved costly with the club conceding 16 goals already, a league high. Those defence is likely to be tested again this weekend against a young pacey Villa side that plays on the counter, something Martinez is all too aware of.
“I think we all know Aston Villa are probably the last team you want to play at home. They are a really, really strong team away from home,” he said in the build-up to the game on Thursday.
“We all know how difficult it is to go the Britannia Stadium. Then they went to Anfield and got a really impressive result there.
“We know they’re really hard-working, very dynamic and carry a real threat with the likes of Christian Benteke, Charles N’Zogbia, Andreas Weimann and Gabriel Agbonlahor.”

If so they will join John Stones (ankle) and Kevin Mirallas (hamstring) and long term absentee Ross Barkley in the stands.
Villa meanwhile have worries of their own with Fabian Delph (shoulder) and Philippe Senderos (thigh) both doubts although the return of Ron Vlaar and a first start since April for Christian Benteke should compensate for the absence of the injured pair.
Villa have slipped from 2nd to 10th in recent weeks following 3 straight defeats. The club have conceded 8 goals during that run with their last goal coming in the 1-0 win over Liverpool in September.
