The Aston Villa vs Everton live stream features two sides looking for their first Premier League win of the season — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).
Everton were perhaps unlucky to lose 1-0 to Chelsea in their first game, but suffered greatly from a lack of attacking options. The sale of last season's hero Richarlison, coupled with yet another injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, has left the Toffees light on options up front, although Salomon Rondon could return from suspension against Villa.
On the plus side, the signings of Wolves' Connor Coady on a season-long loan and Belgian midfielder Amadou Onana in a £33 million deal will excite fans who have had little to cheer lately.
Aston Villa's opening match was even more depressing for their supporters, with Steven Gerrard's side losing limply at EPL new boys Bournemouth. What's more, Gerrard appears to have fallen out with star defender Tyronne Mings, stripping him of the captaincy, dropping him to the bench and stating after the game that he will select him again when he "looks me in the eye and shows that he's ready to play."
Both these teams could do with a win, then. Find out if either can get one by watching an Aston Villa vs Everton live stream.
