OPPOSITION PREVIEW - ASTON VILLA 💜💙 Aston Villa have found life difficult so far on their return to the Premier league after a 3 year absence, after splashing the cash on 12 summer signings, the results have not gone the way the fans have expected as they have 2 losses in their 2 opening games, they are the only of the three newly promoted sides not to get a win under their belts this campaign, which is surprising considering they were tipped by many during pre season to finish mid table, they will need to pick up wins soon or opinions of them will change and they could become the 'new Fulham' as many have also predicted due to them being the 5th highest spenders in Europe, which could backfire if their new recruits fail to gel with the rest of the squad.

🔷️ PREVIEW: Aston Villa (A) 🔷️
🏟 Villa Park
It's match day three and two big clubs with rich history go head to head - Aston Villa and Everton at Villa Park.
Aston Villa have had a alright start to season, although their results would suggest otherwise. Their style of football has been consistent since their last season in Championship - playing to the strengths of McGinn and Grealish. However, Grealish's last twenty games have also been losses in the Premier League which is a worrying statistic for Aston Villa.
Everton have had a good start to the season with fantastic defensive displays against Crystal Palace and Watford however Aston Villa are a truly attacking team and will be the toughest attacking threat yet. The attacking options for Everton have also improved against Watford as Bernard, Kean, DCL and Gomes created amazing opportunities. However Sigurdsson and Richarlison - the two best players from the previous season - have yet to have a "7/8" peformance.

Tonny Bruins Slot (Former Barça assistant coach): "De Jong can play in Busquets' position, but he doesn't have the defensive level of Sergio. He has exceptional quality, though. He could play Xavi's role, too, but he's more Iniesta.”
“His profile is to drift to the left and his vision can be taken advantage of in the final third. He can add something extra playing in a team with players like Lionel Messi, the greatest. He doesn't lose the ball, he has great vision and, I repeat, a great touch.”
