      Join us back for the action at Goodison Park in 10 minutes as Paul Lambert's team will look to overcome a 1-0 deficit. A reminder that no league game involving Aston Villa this season has produced goals from both sides involved. Villa will have to change that to get a result!
    • 0'
      In their six league games over the last month, these two teams have picked up just a single point. Villa have only managed 10 shots on target this season, six fewer than Chelsea's Diego Costa alone. Interestingly, no Aston Villa league game this season has featured goals from both sides involved.
    • 0'
      Paul Lambert's Villa side sit seven places north of Everton in the Premier League table as we near the Christmas period with Roberto Martinez's men having struggled this term winning just the one league game.

      Hello and welcome to live coverage from Goodison Park where Everton are set to host Aston Villa. It's a happy return to domestic football after the international break and today we see two teams looking to kick-start their season after a lacklustre start to the campaign.
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first-half at Goodison Park! Everton in their familiar blue kick-off shooting right to left for the first period. A great atmosphere here in the stadium this afternoon!
    • 2'
      Leon Osman is picked out by the returning Ross Barkley outside the Aston Villa box but is penalised for handball. Everton taking an early control of possession but there are plenty of white Villa shirts behind the ball.
    • 3'
      Early chance for Barkley on his return, he pounced on a blocked Osman attempt but the England international couldn't keep his shot down and sends it well over the crossbar.
    • 5'
      Osman seeing a lot of the ball in the early stages, he drew a foul in the middle of the pitch with the free-kick eventually leading to a failed attack from Leighton Baines down the left side of midfield.
    • 6'
      Lovely link up play between Romelu Lukaku and Barkley down the middle helps the young attacker win a dangerous free-kick outside Villa's penalty box. Barkley wastes the chance sending the shot into the towering wall.

      K. Richardson is cautioned by the referee.
    • 9'

    • 13'
      Gabby Agbonlahor and Aly Cissokho continue to find space down the left for Villa. A cross from the full-back is blocked as Everton break with Coleman down the same side.
    • 15'
      Lukaku finds himself offside from a lofted ball into the box from Steven Naismith, Barkley unleashes a shot before the whistle is blown. Good play from Coleman down the wing in the build-up.
    • 16'

    • 17'
      GOOOAALLLLLLL! It's Phil Jagielka with a nice header past Guzan, a fantastic delivery from Baines with his right foot made it impossible for the England defender to miss. 1-0 to Everton.

      Barkley attacks down the right and tries some stepovers but stumbles over the ball. Villa with possession now.
    • 21'
      Everton are pressing hard on Villa who have the ball deep in the home side's half. Baines makes a good block from an attempted cross from Alan Hutton. Corner to the away team.
    • 23'
      Coleman makes a fantastic run into the box and gifts Naismith with a chance to strike it at Guzan's goal but the Scottish international can't direct his shot on target. Nathan Baker is down injured and play has stopped for the time being!
    • 25'
      Paul Lambert is forced into an early substitution as he brings Irish defender Ciaran Clark on to replace the injured Baker. Play continues as Hutton makes a prompt run inside on his left foot and see's his shot go wide of Tim Howard's goal.

    • 26'
      N. Baker is done for the day. C. Clark is his replacement.
    • 27'
      No clear cut chances as of yet at Goodison Park but Everton are looking more likely to score. Lukaku looks out of sorts though as he can't find a way through the Villa defence and a goal-kick is given!
    • 29'
      Brilliant team play from Villa with Charles N'Zogbia having a shot blocked from inside the box. Cleverley, on loan from Manchester United is heavily involved with some nice first time passes.
    • 31'
      Gabby Agbonlahor getting frustrated on the left wing, he's crowded out by the Everton midfield as Baines attacks down the left. The ball falls for Naismith who shoots with his left but Guzan stands strong to save!
    • 35'
      CRUNCHING TACKLE! Agbonlahor goes in very heavily on Baines in his left back position, the Villa winger is booked for the wreckless challenege. Possession back with Everton as Gareth Barry dictates the play in midfield.
    • 35'
      Last ditch defending from James McCarthy. The midfielder slides in to make a goal saving tackle after Hutton made a quick break down the right wing. Baines was the man at fault after being caught out by a trademark Aston Villa counter-attack!
    • 36'
      G. Agbonlahor gets yellow.
    • 37'
      Baines sends another left-footed delivery into the Villa box towards the big Belgian Lukaku but Ron Vlaar is on hand to clear. Baines, who has created more chances than any other Premier League defender this season, is finding a lot of space on the left wing.
    • 39'
      GOAL-MOUTH SCRAMBLE! Baines' wicked pass from the left finds Barkley who laid a perfect ball for Coleman to strike on goal. Villa survive the onslaught and somehow end up with a goal-kick!
    • 41'
      Hutton is off the picth for the moment with an injury as Villa launch a long directed pass towards Benteke. Everton clear and Coleman has the ball down the right for a throw-in.
    • 43'
      Cissokho concedes a free-kick for a foul on Coleman as Everton push for a second goal just before the break here in front of the home support! It's been a dominant half from Martinez's men.
    • 45'
      Villa cannot penetrate the home defence with Cissokho failing with a cross on the left thanks to good defending from McCarthy. Lukaku tries to break through the middle but is unusually pushed off the ball!
    • 46'
      The second half has started at a reasonable tempo, a sea of blue shirts makes it an intimidating target for Villa to attack! Benteke holds the ball up well in the box despite heavy pressure from the defence, he loses out and Everton take possession yet again with Baines on the left.
    • 46'
      We are back underway at Goodison Park! Everton will be hoping to kill off this game as soon as possible but from the first half action it is quite clear that Aston Villa are capable of hurting the home side on the counter attack!
    • 47'
      Everton score a goal through R. Lukaku!
    • 47'
      GOOOOAAAALLLLLL! Lukaku scores only his third goal of the season after taking a nice pass from Barkley on the left. He fought past the Villa defence to slot home and make it 2-0 to the home side!
    • 48'
      G R. Lukaku Assist L. Baines
    • 48'
      The assist came from R. Barkley.
    • 48'
      Goal to Everton, scored by R. Lukaku!
    • 49'
      McCarthy feels hard done by as he is penalised for a strong tackle in the middle, Villa cannot make anything of the set piece though as the attack fizzles out.
    • 52'
      N'Zogbia tries to spark his side into life with a strong run down the right side, he cuts in but sends in a poor delivery towards Benteke. Lambert will be worried about the lack of creativity coming from the Villa midfield!
    • 54'
      Another series of overhit crosses from Villa's wide men before the Everton centre backs are finally put under some form of pressure. Benteke climbed highest to header towards goal but he hits the crossbar and is ruled offside!
    • 56'
      Villa starting to press higher up the pitch now which will please their manager. Everton are comfortbale on the ball though with Barkley and Osman working together down the middle. Barkley gets crowded out eventually as he tried to make the return pass!
    • 58'
      Agbonlahor is floored by Barry down the centre of the pitch, the referee played the advantage as Villa continued to break with N'Zogbia but Everton hold firm yet again!
    • 60'
      Osman feeling confident now cuts in on his right foot on the edge of the Villa box and unleashes a tamed shot straight at the towering figure of Guzan. Villa can't get a grip on the game and are relying on counter attacks to catch out the home side!
    • 61'
      G. Barry gets yellow.
    • 62'
      Superb hold up play from Benteke in the Everton penalty area as he flicks the ball over three different defenders while keeping his balance. The work from the striker comes to nothing as another poor cross from Agbonlahor ends the attack.
    • 63'
      SI A. Weimann SO L. Baines
    • 63'
      C. N'Zogbia is done for the day. A. Weimann is his replacement.
    • 63'
      Lambert looks to turn things in his sides favour by bringing on the skillful Andreas Weimann to replace N'Zogbia. Everton preparing a change of their own!
    • 65'
      BARKLEY SUBBED: The England midfielder's return from a long term injury comes to and end as he is replaced by Steven Pienaar. Everton back in possession with McCarthy and Barry sweeping up any possible danger.
    • 66'
      SI S. Pienaar SO L. Baines
    • 66'
      R. Barkley is replaced with S. Pienaar.
    • 67'
      Pienaar makes an instant impact since replacing Barkley as he finds Naismith with a nicely weighted ball over the Villa defence but the Scottish attacker is crowded out by both Clark and Cissokho. Penalty appeals from the Everton players but there wasn't much in it!
    • 69'
      Lukaku win's a free-kick directly in front of the Villa goal after a strong run forward. The Belgian takes it himself and sends into the Villa wall. Villa clear and break with Benteke!
    • 71'
      S. Naismith gets yellow.
    • 71'
      Everton have one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League this season but they easily deal with a set piece from the substitute Weimann on the left. Howard comes out to collect and the danger is gone!
    • 73'
      A rare spell of possession for Aston Villa as they push for a goal to get them back into this game. Cleverley quickly pushes forward with some good movement as the ball is picked up by Richardson and he has a shot from the left wing saved by Howard!
    • 76'
      G S. Coleman Assist L. Baines
    • 76'
      L. Baines gave the assist.
    • 76'
      S. Coleman has found the target for Everton!
    • 76'
      Everton score a goal through S. Coleman!
    • 76'
      GOOOOAAALLLL! Coleman scores a tap in on his return to the Everton first team after he is picked out wonderfully by another fantastic delivery from Baines, this time on the left side with his favoured left foot! 3-0 to Everton.
    • 78'
      The home side are cruising now with a three goal advantage, Pienaar has been very lively since coming on for Everton. It was the South African who won the free kick which led to Coleman's goal!
    • 80'
      Villa attempting to get something out of this game by bringing on veteran Joe Cole to replace Benteke. The away side have rarely threatened Tim Howard in the Everton goal, there's a clear lack of creativity with the absence of Fabian Delph in midfield!
    • 81'
      SI J. Cole SO L. Baines
    • 81'
      C. Benteke is done for the day. J. Cole is his replacement.
    • 82'
      Villa asking a lot of Cole in these late stages at Goodison Park. The former England international attempts to play through Agbonlahor but is blocked off. Everton back to dominating the play!
    • 84'
      Pienaar getting involved again on the left, the playmaker helping the home side keep possession as Villa look like they have ran out of steam with the end of this game rapidly approaching!
    • 86'
      Martinez decides to bring on another striker, Samuel Eto'o replaces the impressive Naismith. The Cameroon international will be hoping to bag his third league goal of the season against a tired Villa defence!
    • 87'
      SI S. Eto'o SO L. Baines
    • 87'
      S. Naismith is replaced with S. Eto'o.
    • 88'
      Clark arrives at the front post to header just wide of the Everton goal after an inswinging corner found the Irishman. Eto'o gets his first touch in the Villa box but is crowded out. The atmosphere at Goodison has died off with the result virtually assured!
    • 90'
      Villa will have three additional minutes to endure at Goodison Park! Another Irishman, Darron Gibson makes his return from injury and is introduced to the game, he replaces one of the goal socrers Luakau.
