Alex Iwobi benched as Everton take on Aston Villa

Iwobi made his much-awaited debut in Friday's 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa after replacing Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 61st minute.

Villa struck at the fifth minute of stoppage time through substitute El Ghazi as he squeezed the ball under Jordan Pickford to seal the game.

"Everton started brighter but it was a good performance to get the win", added Smith. "But I always felt we were a threat on the counter".

"Getting your own home outcomes on this league is a vital and getting your first one is huge".

Wesley opened his Premier League account with a smart first-half finish at Villa Park on Friday, the first goal Everton have conceded this season after keeping clean sheets in their opening two matches.

Everton left-back Lucas Digne will be available to play during the game after having overcome a hamstring problem, according to a report published by BBC Sport. "In opposition to Palace we created a number of probabilities to attain and did not and once more right this moment".

Wesley threatened a second aim moments later however this time his shot was blocked by Yerry Mina's sliding problem.

Everton, who could have claimed provisional top spot with a victory, went close to a first-half equaliser but Dominic Calvert-Lewin's strike was superbly cleared off the line by defender Bjorn Engels.

"I am more pleased to get the first points in the Premier League", he said.

Silva tried to spark his team by sending on former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi for his debut along with ex-Juventus striker Moise Kean.

Theo Walcott should have equalised in the 90th minute but the unmarked substitute somehow fired over from close range as he took a hurried swipe at Kean's cross.
