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

Everton will be looking to boost their chances of a top-four spot in the Premier League when they welcome Aston Villa to Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

The Toffees, who recorded a 1-0 win over Arsenal last time out, will again be without the services of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jean-Philippe Gbamin through injury.

Michael Keane could recover from the thigh problem that forced him to miss out against the Gunners, but it would not be a surprise to see head coach Carlo Ancelotti keep with the same back four that featured in North London.

As a result, fit-again Yerry Mina is likely to stay on the bench, while Andre Gomes could be given the nod over Tom Davies to feature alongside Allan in the middle of the park.

The manner of the performance against Arsenal could see Ancelotti stick with the exact same XI, with James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson featuring alongside Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in attack.

The Merseyside club's injury problems have eased, with the likes of Bernard, Fabian Delph and Alex Iwobi all available for selection entering a vital period of the season.

Everton have played with a back three on a number of occasions this term, but Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne both impressed in the full-back areas against the Gunners, which could mean another 4-2-3-1 formation on Saturday night.

Everton possible starting lineup: Pickford; Coleman, Godfrey, Holgate, Digne; Allan, Gomes; Richarlison, Rodriguez, Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin
