Diego Carlos is close to returning from injury, but it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to come in this game. Martinez has taken a lot of criticism for his play in goal, but he’s going to get the start again in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Martinez is still in goal for Aston Villa, and I don’t trust him. The Aston Villa defense is coming off a game where they gave up four goals and they are going to really struggle to defend again in this game. Everton only scored one goal in the last game, but they are going to score at least two goals here. Back Everton on the money line to cash.
