      Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Predictions

      Aston Villa saw their horrendous form transferred from the Premier League to the FA Cup at the weekend when they failed to beat Wycombe Wanderers in the 3rd Round.

      This means they will have to play a replay against the League Two side, which will be an unwelcome distraction from their fight against relegation.

      This made it 16 games without victory in all competitions for Aston Villa, and nine of their last 15 Premier League matches have ended in defeat for Remi Garde’s doomed side.

      Aston Villa are already 11 points from safety at the bottom of the Premier League table, and seven points separates them from the 19th placed Sunderland.

      Crystal Palace managed to progress in the FA Cup with a 2-1 win over Southampton, with that result ending their three match winless streak in all competitions.

      They had failed to score in these three matches, but only one game ended in defeat for Alan Pardew’s impressive side. I think their good performance at St Mary’s on Saturday will have put a new breath of life into the hard to beat Crystal Palace side.

      Crystal Palace have won four of their last eight matches in all competitions and only lost once, a run which has taken them to an impressive 7th position in the Premier League. They are only five points adrift of the top four as well.

      Crystal Palace have won three of their last five matches against Aston Villa, drawing once and losing once on the way. But this is a much better Crystal Palace side and a much worse Aston Villa side than we have seen in recent years.

      This makes a Crystal Palace victory look all the more appealing, and excellent odds of 6/4 for an away win make it an even better backing. I’m also going for a 2-0 correct score prediction at 11/1.
