Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Aston Villa could line up against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Aston Villa will be looking to return to winning ways in England's top flight when they continue their campaign away to Everton on Saturday night.

Dean Smith's side, who currently sit 11th in the Premier League table, will again be without the services of Trezeguet and Morgan Sanson this weekend through injury.

The match at Goodison Park will also come too soon for captain Jack Grealish, who is seemingly finding it difficult to shake off a troublesome calf problem.

Matty Cash was absent from the 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion last time out through suspension, but the defender is available here and should return to the starting XI.

Smith could decide to hand Jacob Ramsey a start over Ross Barkley, while Keinan Davis is in contention to start, having come off the bench to find the back of the net against the Baggies.

Wesley is also now an option, having recovered from a long-term injury, but it seems likely that Ollie Watkins will again lead the line with support from two wide players.

Anwar El Ghazi was on the scoresheet against West Brom and should retain his spot, while Bertrand Traore is likely to feature on the left for a Villa side still chasing a top-10 finish.

Aston Villa possible starting lineup: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Ramsey, Luiz, McGinn; El Ghazi, Watkins, Traore
