Premier League: Stalemate at Villa Park…

The Premier League weekend starts early, with Aston Villa hosting Everton tonight, the most played fixture in English football league history.

The visitors have the opportunity to leap to the top of table with a victory, at least for 24 hours, having claimed four points from their opening two games. That said, they have only scored one goal so far – hardly prolific!

Villa, by contrast, have lost both of their first two games after their promotion back to the big time. Having said this, they played well in spells without really threatening to beat either Tottenham or Bournemouth. The home crowd could give them a push at Villa Park tonight.

We see this as being a defensive battle with not many goals likely. The more adventurous could plump for a goalless game (around 11/1), but we’ll just stick to a draw in case there are defensive lapses.

Recommendation: Draw, 1 pt, at 5/2, widely available
