Everton can now relax after news of Romelu Lukaku’s injury yielded positive results.
After speculations of being sidelined for months, reports said that Lukaku will make it in the pitch within weeks. The Belgian striker suffered an ankle injury after a defensive move during the derby against Liverpool where they were thrashed by a massive 4-0 victory in their opponent’s favor.


With the said incident, Everton’s manager, Roberto Martinez has suddenly joined in the ruckus of securing the signature of another well-known scoring machine, Bafetimbi Gomis.


After the loss to Liverpool, the Tofees cannot afford to lose Lukaku as the competition in the top-flight league becomes fiercer every single day. After Aston Villa, included in Everton’s list of opponents are Tottenham and Chelsea. Both are strong clubs, which are readily capable of lambasting them on the pitch.


Aston Villa

Paul Lambert and his boys look forward to another spectacular performance when they visit Goodison Park for another tight clash against Everton.


Aston Villa is still in high after displaying a major comeback in the derby over West Bromwich Albion. Down by two (2) goals during the first minutes of the match, the club turned the tables around and sealed three (3) successive goals. A penalty from Christian Benteke on the 64th ensured their massive and exciting win.


The said victory enabled the club to remain on the 10th spot of the Premier League table and of course, away from the relegation zone.


Online betting’s top pick: Everton

The Tofees will avoid a repeat of what they had experienced against Liverpool. Expect the club to unleash more attacks and prevent another clean sheet. But there is a high possibility for Aston Villa to force a down the wire match as the club is unwilling to throw the white towel easilly.
