Crystal Palace vs. Aston Villa  Prediction and Match Preview

Crystal Palace play host to Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon looking to build on their excellent draw at Liverpool earlier this week.

While Palace currently sit in 16th position in the Premier League table, Villa have moved up to ninth spot courtesy of their victory over Everton.

Match preview

Odsonne Edouard scores a penalty for Crystal Palace against Norwich City in December 2021

Despite Zaha excelling down the middle against Liverpool, Vieira may decide to move the long-serving attacker back to his usual role on the left flank.

That would allow either Odsonne Edouard or Jean-Philippe Mateta to come into the team, while Michael Olise is also pushing for an opportunity in the final third.

Joel Ward could drop out of the team after featuring in a back five at Anfield.

Gerrard will call upon either Calum Chambers or Ezri Konsa to take the place of Diego Carlos in the middle of the defence.

Buendia is in line to replace Philippe Coutinho, but the central-midfield occupants should remain the same with Douglas Luiz staying among the replacements.

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Clyne, Anderson, Guehi, Mitchell; Doucoure, Schlupp; Olise, Eze, Zaha; Edouard

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Chambers, Mings, Digne; McGinn, Kamara, Ramsey; Buendia, Ings, Watkins
