Aston Villa v Everton: Live Gamethread

Getty Images

Two struggling teams clash at Villa Park but both have new signings in their squad. Robbie Keane has swapped LA for Birmingham for six week (who knows why!?) but has to be content with a place on the bench. For Everton Darron Gibson starts, as does Drenthe (at last) and youngster Shane Duffy - his first Premier League start.

Everton have not beaten Villa in their last 12 atttempts, they badly need that stat to change today if they are to keep themselves in mid-table and away from any bother at the bottom.

Aston Villa: Given, Hutton, Dunne, Collins, Warnock, Clark, Petrov, Albrighton, Ireland, Agbonlahor, Bent

Subs: Guzan, N'Zogbia, Delph, Keane, Cuellar, Bannan, Gardner

Everton: Howard, Neville, Heitinga, Duffy, Baines, Donovan, Gibson, Fellaini, Drenthe, Cahill, Saha

Subs: Mucha, Anichebe, Bilyaletdinov, Stracqualursi, McFadden, Gueye, Vellios

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)
