Rafa Benitez was sacked as manager after a woeful run of just one win in 13 games.

And while the Toffees search for their latest boss, Duncan Ferguson has been appointed in a caretaker capacity.

A cracking atmosphere is expected at Goodison - and even more so because of who is in charge of Villa.

Steven Gerrard spent his entire playing career at bitter rivals Liverpool and now heads to Everton for the first time as a manager.

The midlands outfit showed plenty of heart to come from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Manchester United last time out.

Here is all the key information needed ahead of kick-off.

Everton team news

Ferguson confirmed that Everton almost have a fully-fit squad.

Allan is back in training after missing last week’s loss at Norwich.

Richarlison and Yerry Mina both returned from respective calf injuries at Carrow Road, with the former netting the visitors’ consolation goal.

Both are likely to come into the starting XI.

Fabian Delph and Tom Davies (hamstring) are long-term casualties.

Meanwhile, Alex Iwobi is at the African Cup of Nations with Nigeria.

Villa loanee Anwar El Ghazi is ineligible to play against his former club and will have to wait for his Everton debut.

Marvelous Nakamba and Leon Bailey will also be absent through injury.

Villa are handed a huge boost as John McGinn returns from a one-game suspension. He’s almost certain to come into the starting XI.

It’ll be interesting if Gerrard hands a full debut to Philippe Coutinho after coming off the bench to net the equaliser against Man Utd.

Trézéguet (Egypt) and Bertrand Traore (Burkina Faso) are both at AFCON.
