Who was your Everton Man of the Match in the game against Aston Villa? Grade the players and manager on how they did.
Rafa Benitez was short Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Jordan Pickford and Seamus Coleman all due to injuries, while James Rodriguez continues to be exiled from the squad despite proclaiming himself fit to play.
Asmir Begovic came into the lineup and was joined by Ben Godfrey out at right back, with Alex Iwobi playing at #10 and Salomon Rondon getting his debut start at striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
The Blues were in the game until about the hour mark, trading chances with the hosts, but an explosive spell from Villa not unlike the kind that Everton used to accelerate away from Burnley on Monday night saw them concede thrice in a matter of minutes and effectively end the contest as a spectacle.
