Crystal Palace is playing impressively at the end of the Premier League this season. However, Aston Villa is no less competitive and has continuously shown a bright face in recent times. Playing at Villa Park, believes that Aston Villa will make a story before the “Eagles”.
Aston Villa have won 13, drawn four and lost 18 of their 35 Premier League games this season to collect 43 points, putting them in 12th place in the table before the last three. Coach Steven Gerrard’s side can still finish in the top half of the tournament when only 4 points behind Brighton’s 9th place and 1 game less. Aston Villa have won 7 points from 3 matches against Leicester, Norwich and Burnley from April 23 to May 7. But they suffered a 1-2 defeat at home to Liverpool on Tuesday.
Of course it’s not a bad result, because Liverpool are too strong at the moment and even Aston Villa did not play badly in that match. The problem now is that Aston Villa have 3 losses in the last 4 home matches and the last 11 matches at Villa Park they have only 3 wins. Coach Steven Gerrard’s team will return to the home ground to welcome Burnley before ending the tournament with a trip to Man City. Aston Villa only got 21 points after 17 home matches this season. Therefore, welcoming Crystal Palace is an opportunity for them to improve their performance.
Legendary Patrick Vieira has impressed since becoming the captain of Crystal Palace in July last year. Under the former Arsenal player, the “Eagles” reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and had remarkable achievements in the English Premier League. Bringing back 44 points through 35 rounds, Crystal Palace is currently in 11th place on the rankings. Crystal Palace’s recent form is also very impressive when it won both previous rounds.
The capital side drew with Leeds, before beating Southampton 2-1 and Watford 1-0 in their last two matches. Crystal Palace will face Aston Villa, Everton and Man Utd in the last 3 matches of the Premier League this season. Coach Patrick Vieira’s team has collected 18 points from 17 away matches in the Premier League this season. However, they have not won at Villa Park since December 2013. Crystal Palace have never finished higher than 10th place in the Premier League.
