Villa get the game underway...
The sides are out at Villa Park now, kick off not long away.
As for Villa, they have better team news with Emi Martinez back between the sticks, while the outfield players are unchanged from the side who were defeated 3-0 by Chelsea last week.
So the key team news really is the absence of Jordan Pickford due to a shoulder strain. Seamus Coleman has a hamstring injury and Richarlison is also injured. This means there are full debuts for Salomon Dondon and Asmir Begovic, with Ben Godfrey returning ot the side.
This is the Everton side Rafa Benitez will send out to do battle at 5.30pm.
This is how the Villans will line up...
