Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
Aston Villa must quickly grab points if it does not want to return to the Championship after one season. Starting this weekend when Crystal Palace is the opponent at Villa Park.
At Aston Villa they threw money on the transfer market last summer, keeping in mind that preservation in the Premier League had to be a certainty. Unfortunately for Villa that is not true. The club management of Aston Villa spent almost 160 million euros on players and that has not been a success and not a success. Aston Villa is nineteenth in the Premier League and is already reasonably behind in the safe zone. The Villans have to win against Crystal Palace this weekend if they want to keep an eye on body conservation.
Especially because Aston Villa with two Everton-away and Arsenal-home still faces two tough opponents in the Premier League. The Birmingham club ends the season by confronting West Ham United, one of the other teams that is still fighting relegation. At Aston Villa they have had a tough week. Last Sunday, The Villans lost 2-0 to Liverpool and last Thursday, Manchester United was 0-3 too strong for Dean Smith’s team. Afterwards, it was mainly about the first goal of Manchester United, which unjustly received a penalty and thus took the lead. To be honest, Aston Villa would otherwise have lost to The Red Devils. The problem with Aston Villa is that it plays nice football until it gets a goal against. Then Smith’s whole skeleton collapses like a house of cards.
Crystal Palace has long been assured of body preservation in the Premier League. Roy Hodgson did it again this season with Palace. As we are used to from Hodgson, Crystal Palace did not play spectacular again this season. A lot of good results were achieved and Crystal Palace has been assured of body preservation for several weeks now. That’s all that matters in the Premier League for Hodgson and his men. Also because the 72-year-old Hodgson does not have such a special selection at his disposal in South London.
At Crystal Palace it has not gone as hoped since Project Restart. The Eagles started the resumption with a 0-2 win over relegation candidate Bournemouth. In the four games that followed, Crystal Palace was unable to get a single point. After defeats against Liverpool (4-0), Burnley (1-0) and Leicester City (3-0), the East Londoners lost 2-3 against Chelsea earlier this week. Gary Cahill suffered a hamstring injury against his former club and is unlikely to play for Crystal Palace this season.
