A busy weekend of domestic Premier League and EFL football action ahead and the action kicks-off tonight with a live Premier League game between winless Aston Villa and unbeaten Everton at Villa Park. This is the first meeting between the two teams since the 2015/2016 Premier League season and the Toffees emerged victorious in both fixtures winning convincingly 3-1 at Villa Park and 4-0 at Goodison. Villa are already finding out how tough life is at this level having lost their opening two games 3-1 and 2-1 respectively, they look like the more inexperienced of the three promoted teams and unless they start setting up more defensively they will likely lose more games than they will win this season, including against a decent Everton team tonight.

Norwich will aim to repeat their comprehensive Pukki inspired 3-0 thrashing of Newcastle United last weekend while Chelsea and new manager Frank Lampard will aim to pick up their first win of the season after being thrashed by Manchester United 4-0 on the opening day and drawing 1-1 against Leicester City last weekend.
Derby against West Brom should be an entertaining, competitive match as both teams have only lost one of their first five games in all competitions. Derby has struggled in their last two fixtures just hanging on for a draw away against Stoke 2-2 and a 1-1 draw against a resurgent Reading at home on Wednesday night, which could hand a slight advantage to the Baggies on this occasion. Promoted Lincoln, who won their opening four games of the season, will look to get back to winning ways against Doncaster at the Keepmoat on Saturday lunch-time after losing their first match of the season against MK Dons on Tuesday night. Doncaster will aim to back-up their first win of the season 3-2 at home against Fleetwood on Tuesday night.
