Despite regularly failing to seize their opportunities at Goodison Park – where Everton have taken six points from a possible 27 this year – Carlo Ancelotti’s stubborn side remain in contention for European qualification courtesy of their contrasting results on the road. A first win at Arsenal in 25 years took Everton’s away haul to 33 points from a possible 48 this season and they will leapfrog Liverpool and Tottenham with a second home league win of 2021. Villa, who remain without Jack Grealish, have won only two of their last 11 Premier League games and last won at Goodison in 2008. Andy Hunter
