That’s all for now. Goodbye!
It leaves Villa in 19th, three points off Watford and West Ham in 17th and 16th respectively. Everton remain firmly in mid-table.
Heartbreak for Villa, who looked set to be snatching a valuable win thanks to Konsa’s goal, only for Walcott to claim a share of the spoils for Everton, who put in another underwhelming display. The visitors could – and should – have had a second, but El Ghazi missed a glorious chance.
90' + 3' CLOSE! Walcott lashes a low cross into the six-yard box, but Calvert-Lewin was a yard or so behind it.
90' + 1' The assist for Walcott's equaliser was Gomes' first assist in the league since December 2018.
89' That is a lucky escape for Everton, and there will now be another four minutes stoppage time.
André Gomes
87' Gomes has been much more involved in Everton’s attacking play in the last ten minutes and his cross from right out on the left wing was a brilliant one.
T. Walcott
87' GOAL! EVERTON ARE LEVEL! What a blow for Villa, as Walcott meets Gomes’ cross from the left. His header loops up over Reina and drops into the opposite corner, with Konza just unable to do enough to keep it out.
86' CHANCE! That should have been the equaliser! It would hardly have been deserved for Everton, but they could easily have been level. Gomes got in down the left and provided a quality cutback for Calvert-Lewin, but from six yards out he sent his effort wide.
84' The hosts have had just six shots in total, and not one on target.
82' Sigurdsson curls in a corner which both Calvert-Lewin and Keane go up for, but neither make contact. It has been a dismal attacking display from Everton.
80' MISS! Everton are so fortunate not to be further behind. El Ghazi met a looping cross to the back post, but from a yard out, directed his effort over.
79' That is poor from Kean. The youngster runs through a crowd of Villa players but is soon off balance. Instead of attempting to find a team-mate, he elects to go for goal, and blazes a strike way over the bar.
77' Indeed, since his league debut for Villa in January 2017, Conor Hourihane has provided more assists in league competition than any other Villa player.
75' Hourihane has now provided assists in back-to-back Premier League games.
M. Kean
74' Ancelotti has responded with a double change – Kean is on in place of Richarlison.
G. Sigurðsson
T. Davies
73' Sigurdsson is also on, with Davies making way.
C. Hourihane
72' Hourihane delivered a quality cross, and Everton's defence were all at sea. Konsa was alert, though, and got the decisive touch. 
E. Konsa
72' GOOOOAAAALL!!! VILLA TAKE THE LEAD! A free-kick from the right catches Everton's defence out and Konsa is on hand to turn it home. What a huge goal that could be for Villa!
71' Grealish shrugs off Davies, twisting one way and then the other to get a shot off, but three Everton defenders had converged on Villa’s captain and there was no way through.
Ahmed El Mohamady
Yellow Card
70' El Mohamady has become the first Villa player to go into the book.
69' We've reached the second drinks break.
67' The left-footed Hourihane goes for goal, yet directs his effort right into Everton’s wall.
65' Davis does well to hold the play up for Villa and then draw a clumsy tackle from Branthwaite, handing Villa a free-kick 20 yards out.
A. El Ghazi
64' Villa have made a change, with Trezeguet making way for El Ghazi.
K. Davis
M. Samatta
64' Davis has also come on, replacing Samatta.
T. Walcott
A. Iwobi
62' Walcott has also come on in place of Iwobi.
A. Gordon
62' Two changes for Everton, as Ancelotti looks to inject some urgency into his side's display. First, Bernard has made way for Gordon.
Yellow Card
61' Richarlison joins Digne in the book.
59' Chance for McGinn! He goes up for a header in the centre of the area, but can't send it on target, with the ball instead looping up away from goal.
57' Smith is clearly frustrated on the touchline, after Douglas Luiz hoofs a ball harmlessly out of play. Everton could have been there for the taking but his side have been as equally as sloppy.
L. Digne
Yellow Card
56' Digne goes into the book for a foul on McGinn.
55' Everton are unbeaten in 10 Premier League home games. Only their rivals Liverpool are on a longer current such run, while it’s the Toffees’ longest run without defeat at Goodison Park since December 2016.
52' Iwobi finally gets the better of Targett and delivers an inviting cross into the six-yard box. Calvert-Lewin, though, could not react quickly enough to connect with it.
51' Gomes thumps in a free-kick from out wide on the left, with Calvert-Lewin rising to meet it. However, the striker can’t turn his header on target.
50' Villa have now had nine attempts, compared to just three from Everton.
49' Once again, Grealish finds himself with space to shoot from his position in the left-hand channel. He curls an effort goalwards – towards the right-hand upright – but once more he puts too much on it.
47' CLOSE! Grealish isolates Coleman down Villa's left and creates space for a shot. He sends his effort towards the near post, but drags it a yard wide. That's a warning sign for Everton, however.
46' Everton get the second half up and running.
Everton look laboured and stagnant as the season winds down, with the Toffees having little to play for. Villa, meanwhile, must improve if they are to take a big opportunity to secure what could be a vital three points in their bid to avoid the drop.
After a bright start, the first half quickly fizzled out and neither side have offered much threat. Indeed, neither team have managed a shot on target as of yet.
45' + 2' Samatta has been given the all clear to come back on and Villa are back to 11 men. Seconds later, he latches onto Douglas Luiz's pass and gets a shot off, but it trickles straight to Pickford.
45' + 1' An injury concern for Villa, with Samatta down receiving treatment.
45' Grealish whips in a free-kick from the right, but Keane is on hand to clear it, as two it is confirmed there will be a minimum of two minutes added time.
42' Iwobi’s tackle only results in Douglas Luiz getting free in the middle, and the ex-Manchester City midfielder only has eyes for goal – his effort, though, is a poor one which does not test Pickford.
41' Villa’s win against Crystal Palace last time out ended a run of 10 Premier League games without a win; they’ve not won consecutive league games since October.
39' Gomes sends in the cross, which is hit towards the near post, but Douglas Luiz is on hand to cut it out and concede a corner. Gomes again takes the set-piece, but no attacker got close to getting on the end of it.
37' Everton work it out from the back, with Digne then bursting forward from left-back. His options are limited, but the defender draws a foul, handing Everton a free-kick around 35 yards out.
35' Grealish gets another chance to run at Everton’s defence, and this time gets a shot away. His effort may have been on target, but it takes a deflection and sails out for a Villa corner.
34' Gomes does well to hold off a challenge and slip it wide to Digne. His cross is blocked, but the full-back keeps up the pressure and finds Iwobi. However, he slices his strike well over the bar.
32' Neither side has had a shot on target so far.
31' Excellent defending from Branthwaite, as he manages to steal the ball ahead of Trezeguet and the draw a foul, relieving the pressure on Everton’s line.
29' After a bright start, Everton have rather faded as an attacking force, with Villa getting a foothold. However, with Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin, the hosts have plenty to offer on the counter.
27' Grealish has been on the fringes of things so far, but takes control as he looks to drive his way into Everton’s area. He gets the better of Gomes and Coleman, but Davies gets across to ensure the playmaker’s path to goal is blocked.
25' Villa are looking to secure their first league double over Everton since 2000-01, following their 2-0 win at Villa Park in August.
23' There will now be a break for drinks.
22' Hourihane is no stranger to scoring stunning, long-range strikes, though he gets an effort all wrong on this occasion as he slices a wild strike well wide of Pickford’s goal.
20' Frustrating play from Iwobi, who tries to get the better of his marker but only results in putting himself on the back foot. Keane is on hand to help out, punting the ball up to Richarlison, but his touch is a poor one and the Brazil international then concedes a foul, relieving any pressure.
18' Branthwaite’s first involvement is to go into an aerial challenge with Mings in Everton’s area. He wins the ball, doing well to get it clear, but takes a knock from the Villa defender on the way down. He will be fine to carry on, though.
J. Branthwaite
M. Holgate
16' Indeed, Holgate will not be able to carry on and, after making his debut against Wolves, young defender Branthwaite will come on for Everton.
16' A worry now for Everton, with Holgate down. The defender had missed the last two matches through injury, and clearly has a problem here.
15' A half-chance now for Villa, as a cross from the right finds Samatta in space. However, the forward had to stretch to meet it, and he sends his header over the bar.
14' OFF THE BAR! Bernard and Digne combine brilliantly down Everton’s left, with the latter passing it infield to Gomes. He drills it straight back out to Bernard, whose cross loops over Reina but drops onto the top of the woodwork.
12' Villa get forward now, with Douglas Luiz sending it wide for the overlapping El Mohamady. The full-back drills in a cross, but Everton’s defence deals with it comfortably.
10' CLOSE! Everton craft their first opportunity – Richarlison arrowing a cross in from the left. Mings just manages to get something on it, and his touch is enough to put Calvert-Lewin off, with the striker only able to send his header over.
9' Everton have certainly started stronger, though Ancelotti will have demanded a reaction from his players after a horrid performance away at Wolves last time out. Villa are having a lot of defending to do at the moment, though no clear chances as of yet.
7' Bernard cuts inside from the left and gets Everton driving forward, with the diminutive winger combining with Iwobi. However, his touch on the edge of Villa’s box lets him down, and the visitors clear their lines.
5' Everton’s midfield has been a problem area for the Toffees this season, though Davies has made a bright start, with the youngster putting himself about in the opening stages. He intercepts a stray pass and feeds Iwobi, but the former Arsenal man cannot pick out Calvert-Lewin and the move breaks down.
3' Everton have won their last three home league games against Aston Villa, last winning more consecutively against them at Goodison Park between 1964-1975.
1' KICK-OFF! Villa get proceedings underway!
The teams are out on the pitch at Goodison Park, with kick-off coming up in a few moments. Stick right here for all the action as it happens.
Just one change from Smith, with Neil Taylor making way for Targett at left-back. Trezeguet scored both goals in the win over Palace, and he starts as part of the visitors’ front three.
ASTON VILLA SUBSTITUTES: Henri Lansbury, Marvelous Nakamba, Anwar El Ghazi, Jota, Frederic Guilbert, Orjan Nyland, Indiana Vassilev, Keinan Davis, Kaine Hayden.
ASTON VILLA (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Ahmed El Mohamady, Ezri Konza, Tyrone Mings, Matt Targett; John McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Conor Hourihane; Trezeguet, Mbwana Samatta, Jack Grealish.
Carlo Ancelotti was furious with his side after Sunday’s 3-0 defeat at Wolves, and he has made four changes in total. Gomes and Holgate return from injury, with Iwobi and Bernard also coming back into the starting XI. Baines, the injured Mina, Gordon and Walcott drop out.
EVERTON SUBSTITUTES: Leighton Baines, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Djibril Sidibe, Maarten Stekelenburg, Moise Kean, Joao Virginia, Jarrad Branthwaite, Anthony Gordon.
EVERTON (4-4-2): Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, Mason Holgate, Lucas Digne; Alex Iwobi, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Bernard; Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Villa, meanwhile, ended their three-match losing streak with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out. Dean Smith’s side are 19th, four points from safety with just four games remaining. However, they have the chance to boost their hopes today against an out-of-sorts Everton.
After three games unbeaten following the restart, Everton have been incredibly poor In the last three matches, losing two and drawing against Southampton. It has left them 11th, six points behind 10th-placed Burnley.
