So no matter what happens, we're all agreeing not to panic. Right?

Right. Good.

Uh....who is Derrick Williams?

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:

  • Yohan Cabaye. Villa weren't especially good at closing down Everton's midfielders, and that could be deadly with Cabaye pulling the strings.
  • Vurnon Anita. I'm a big fan of the kid and thought he was great at Ajax, but he had a rough day against Chelsea. If he's exposed, maybe Villa can get something going down the right.
  • Remember how Pienaar scored that goal three minutes in because no one closed him down at the edge of the box? Yeah, can't let anything like that happen against this team.
  • Lambert switched up the tactics against Everton; does he go with yet another new approach?
