Aston Villa vs. Everton 2015: Live stream, TV schedule and team news

New, comments

Aston Villa host Everton in a crucial relegation battle today. Here's everything you need to follow along.

Bennett Berry

Aston Villa, who have played their best football of the season recently, are still very much in peril of being relegated from the Premier League. Two months ago, today's match against Everton at Villa Park looked like something we could hope to win without too much worry. Since then Everton have become one of the most in-form teams in the league with a run that culminated in last weekend's 3-0 walloping of Manchester United.

So today will be tough. But so was playing at White Hart Lane, and so was taking on Liverpool in the FA Cup semifinal. A win here may be all that's needed for safety, but we shouldn't look down our noses at a point either. And with it being retro day at Villa Park let's hope the club channels the 1980-81 team and not the 1986-87 version.
