Crystal Palace will be hoping to build on their impressive display at Anfield on Monday, when they welcome Villa to Selhurst Park and get their first three points of the season on the board. Patrick Vieira’s side took the lead thanks to fantastic work from Eberechi Eze, who danced round Fabinho before playing a superb through ball to Wilfried Zaha, who scored his 10th league goal of 2022 with a composed finish.
Then came the Liverpool onslaught, who despite going down to 10-men due to Darwin Nunez’s stupidity, drew level thanks to a fantastic finish from Luis Diaz, but Palace held on to earn a well deserved draw.
Aston Villa picked up their first three points of the 2022/23 campaign on Saturday as rivalries were renewed between Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard at Villa Park. It was just Villa’s third home win of 2022, a relief for the home faithful, even holding off a late Everton flurry which saw them make things interesting in the final five minutes.
Villa do have a much better record on the road however, winning 43% of their away games under Steven Gerrard, compared to just 33% at home.

Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa match stats
Since Palace returned to the Premier League in 2013, nine of the 10 goals they have scored against Aston Villa have come after the 60th minute, while four of the five goals that were scored in the matches between the two sides in 2021/22 were scored in the second half. Aston Villa have failed to keep a clean sheet in their seven Premier League games.
Wilfried Zaha set a new personal best for goals in Premier League season in 2021/22, scoring 14 times in 31 starts and scored the only goal of the game as Palace earned a hard fought point at Anfield on Monday evening. The Ivorian had all three of Palace’s shots on target during the game and was unlucky not to add a second after hitting the post, when it was probably easier to score.
The forward is just one of five players alongside Son Heung-Min, Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne to score 10+ Premier League goals in 2022 and has scored 42% of Palace’s league goals in this calendar year.
