Everton vs. Aston Villa prediction: Demarai Gray can cause problems for Villa’s defense.
When Everton travels to Aston Villa for their next Premier League match, they will be seeking to keep up their good form under Rafa Benitez.
The Toffees are a shocking 41/20 favourite with Grosvenor Sport to win, while Villa are 7/5 favourites and a draw is 47/20.
Demarai Gray, who joined Everton for less than £2 million from Bayer Leverkusen, has had a wonderful start to the season and is showing signs of being the signing of the season, according to Tom Phillips of The Inside Track.
Both teams have had contrasting openings to the season, with Villa needing to find their feet in the absence of Jack Grealish, while Everton have had a near-perfect start under former Reds manager Rafa Benitez.
Benitez has had a fantastic start at Goodison Park, and his transfer window business appears to have paid off as he chops and alters his tactics to get the best out of his Everton side thus far this season.
Demarai Gray is a scorer who can score at any time. – 5/18 8/11 for both teams to score
