Everton Vs. Aston Villa: Lineups And Match Open Thread

Eight matches left for Aston Villa. Be the 12th Man.

It's early. I'm tired. The Twitterers are ecstatic, thinking that this is a 4-4-2 formation. I'm not sure why, exactly, considering it's almost the same attacking lineup we've seen from these boys recently. Personally, I think a 4-4-2 is outdated and we'll be overran in the midfield by Everton if Aston Villa are really playing one, but hey, if that's the "English way" and we must do it to avoid the R-word, let's have at it.
