Everton and Villa vanquished in Swiss warm-ups

Everton and Aston Villa both suffered defeats on their pre-season tours of Switzerland today.

Making their first outing since returning to training, the Toffees went down 1-0 to FC Sion, with Villa beaten 2-1 by FC Zurich on the final match of their trip.

Everton were missing a number of big names through injury, while goalkeeper Tim Howard and the club's African contingent had yet to return from their summer breaks.

An inexperienced line-up was second best throughout, the hosts deservedly winning through a 58th-minute goal from Didier Cretterand.

The midfielder played a neat one-two to open up the Everton defence before calmly finishing past Iain Turner.

Everton substitute Kieran Agard should have restored parity straight away but his header glanced wide.

Villa, who begin their Intertoto Cup campaign next week, were made to pay for conceding two penalties in Zurich.

Steve Sidwell made his debut following his move from Chelsea but otherwise it was an unhappy afternoon for the tourists, who fell behind early on when Martin Laursen felled Florian Stahel in the box and Almen Abdi converted the penalty.

Gabriel Agbonlahor looked to have levelled almost instantly but his volleyed effort from Marlon Harewood's right-wing cross was offside.

Agbonlahor got one that counted in the 17th minute, powering his way into the box and slotting a low angled drive beyond Johnny Leoni.

Villa wasted more than one chance to take the lead, partly thanks to some excellent goalkeeping from Leoni.

And they were made to pay when Zat Knight brought down Admir Mehmedi with 11 minutes remaining and Abdi slotted home the winner.
