Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Prediction: Premier League

Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back to winning ways this weekend as they return to action following the international break. Crystal Palace will be the visitors on Saturday, as they look to extend their unbeaten streak to three matches.


Premier League Preview 

A lot was expected of Aston Villa before the start of the season, with some even predicting that Unai Emery’s side could make a shock charge for a Champions League spot. However, Villa will need to respond as they take to the field in front of their home fans on Saturday after being hammered by Liverpool in their most recent matches before the international break. 

The West Midlands side was outclassed from start to finish at Anfield, and they fell behind inside three minutes. They found themselves 2-0 down after just 22 minutes, with Liverpool’s third being added ten minutes into the second half. Villa managed to record just 36% of the possession, and registered just three shots on target. However, their home record under Emery is impressive, and that could be hard to ignore when considering the most likely winner this weekend.

Crystal Palace will be delighted with the start to the season that they have made, as they currently sit seventh in the standings. A victory for the Eagles this weekend could see them end the weekend in the top four spots in the Premier League standings. 

Palace have gone two without defeat in the top-flight, and they picked up a second victory of the season before the international break, as they landed a 3-2 win over Wolves. Odsonne Edouard scored twice in that victory, while Eberechi Eze also found the back of the net. 

Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Head to Head 

Villa won this exact fixture 1-0 last season, but were beaten 3-1 at Selhurst Park. There has been only one away win in the ten Premier League fixtures between these sides, with that coming as the Villa picked up a 2-1 win at Selhurst Park in November 2021. 

Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Prediction 

Crystal Palace have enjoyed a fine start to the new season, and their quality on the counter-attack will make them dangerous at Villa Park. However, we expect to see a response from the Villa this weekend after their no-show against Liverpool before the international break.
