Aston Villa v Everton live stream, Saturday 18 September, 5:30pm BST
Aston Villa will look to bounce back from defeat at Chelsea (opens in new tab) as they entertain Everton - who have the joint best Premier League record so far this season - at Villa Park on Saturday evening.
Villa's only league win of 2021/22 came against Newcastle (opens in new tab) in their first home game of the campaign. Either side of that result, Dean Smith's team lost away to Watford (opens in new tab) and drew with Brentford.
Everton have made a fine start under new boss Rafael Benitez. The Toffees produced a scintillating second-half performance to beat Burnley (opens in new tab) 3-1 at Goodison Park on Monday night, having already seen off Southampton (opens in new tab) and Brighton (opens in new tab) and drawn with Leeds (opens in new tab).
Smith has almost a fully fit squad to select from, with Trezeguet, Keinan Davis and youngster Carney Chukwuemeka the only confirmed absentees for Villa.
Benitez remains without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Fabian Delph for the trip to the West Midlands, but the Spaniard will be delighted with the impact that Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend have made since signing this summer; both scored against Burnley, with the latter hitting arguably the goal of the season so far from 25 yards.
The two meetings between the sides last season took place within 12 days of each other in May. Villa won 2-1 on Merseyside, while the reverse fixture finished goalless.
Kick-off is at 5:30pm BST and the game is being shown live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event (opens in new tab) in the UK.

UK TV schedule
Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 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!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
