    Crystal Palace to Continue Good Form with Win Over Aston Villa

    There are three fixtures to be played at the traditional time of 3pm in the English Premier League on Saturday afternoon including the match between Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

    The game will take place at Selhurst Park and the hosts begin the weekend in 10th place on 16 points while the visitors are in 15th place on 13 points.

    Crystal Palace come into the match on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw at Burnley last weekend. The Eagles open the scoring after only 8 minutes but found themselves 2-1 down 20 minutes later.

    However, two goals before half-time ensured Crystal Palace went in ahead at the interval. It took only 4 minutes of the second half for Burnley to score the equaliser and that is where the scoring finished.

    That result means Crystal Palace are undefeated in their last 7 Premier League matches. They have won only 2 of those 7 fixtures, with the victories coming away against Manchester City and home against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The remaining 5 games have all ended level including 3 of their last 4 at home.

    Crystal Palace are undefeated when playing at home in the Premier League this season, picking up 3 wins and 3 draws. Trends show Crystal Palace have scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 8 home Premier League fixtures.

    Aston Villa make the trip to Selhurst Park having defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at home in the Premier League last weekend. It was the first match in charge for new manager Steven Gerrard. It appeared as though the game was going to end without a goal until Aston Villa broke the deadlock in the 84th minute and added a second goal 5 minutes later.

    It was a crucial result for Aston Villa who were on a run of 5 straight defeats in the Premier League. Their away form shows 3 successive defeats, with the losses coming at Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Southampton.

    In fact, Aston Villa have lost 5 of their 6 away Premier League fixtures this season, with the only victory coming at Manchester United.

    Conceding goals has been a problem for Aston Villa, especially when playing away from home. Trends show Aston Villa have conceded in 11 of their last 12 away Premier League matches and have conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 6 on the road.

    Team news and Crystal Palace have Nathan Ferguson back in training but he is unlikely to feature in this game. James McArthur is the only other player set to be unavailable to Patrick Vieira.

    Aston Villa travel without Bertrand Traore, who may return next week. They also have doubts over the fitness of central midfielder Douglas Luiz, who is recovering from a hamstring problem.

    This is a tough second assignment for Gerrard and Crystal Palace look strong this season. Villa have been poor away from home and The Eagles could come out on top, scoring at least 2 goals in the process.
