Aston Villa Vs Everton Tips and Prediction
Gerrard and Lampard faced off 34 times throughout the course of their illustrious playing careers, with Lampard triumphing 16 times to 11 for his England teammate.
However, both managers are under pressure to perform at their respective clubs after being given the leeway to make the required adjustments to their teams in the transfer market before of this match.
However, despite goals at each end of the game, the trio was unable to stop Villa from losing 2-0 to newly promoted Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
This feels like a match where Villa need to produce to stop further criticism coming their head coach’s way at a time when there also seem to be problems between Gerrard and former captain Tyrone Mings behind the scenes.
Even though Everton barely avoided relegation last season and opened this one with a loss, everything currently feels much more upbeat at Goodison Park.
Salomon Rondon, a backup striker, has returned from suspension, which is only going to help the Toffees’ lack of a recognized forward against Chelsea.
Everton only lost to a Jorginho penalty in a game where they lost two defenders to injury, so Lampard should be quite content with his team’s performance against his former team.
Lampard needs every member of his team to perform well in a highly anticipated match, even though it may be asking too much for the pair to be particularly significant on Saturday after signing on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
Despite the fact that it is still early in the season, both clubs and their managers are under pressure to start the year off right. At Villa Park, though, we should expect a challenging game that can end in a stalemate with few goals scored.
