Crystal Palace faces Aston Villa

Crystal Palace faces Aston Villa at the Selhurst Park in a match from the fourth round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our English Premier League predictions.

The mood in Crystal Palace’s dressing room is pretty high after the win against Manchester United in the previous round. Roy Hodgson’s boys performed very well at the Old Trafford and at the end of the game celebrated a 2-1 win.

Jordan Ayew opened the score for the Glaziers, but Daniel James equalised for United. It seemed that the game is going to end with a draw, but in the last seconds Patrick van Aanholt put the ball behind David de Gea’s back and clinched the win for the visitors.

During the week Crystal Palace dissapointed their fans, though. The team got eliminated from the League Cup, losing with penalties by Colchester United at the Selhurst Park.

Aston Villa are currently 16th in the Premier League standings with three points won from the first three rounds. In their last league game the Villans celebrated their first win since the promotion from the Championship. Dean Smith’s boys hosted Everton at the Villa Park and celebrated a 2-0 win in Birmingham. Wesley and Anwar El Ghazi scored for the home side.

During the week Aston Villa enjoyed a very convincing display in the second round of the League Cup as well. The former European champions visited Crewe Alexandra and celebrated an exciting 6-1 win at the Alexandra Stadium. Conor Hourihane scored a brace for the winning side, while Ezri Konsa, Keinan Davis, Frederic Guilbert and Jack Grealish also scored for the visitors.

In our English Premier League predictions we can conclude that this game looks very difficult to predict. Both teams won their last games in the league, so it’s hard to say who is going to win this one.
