Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace odds
*Odds correct as of 9:50 on September 14
At the first international break of the 2023/24 Premier League season, both Aston Villa and Crystal Palace will feel content with their starts. Of the two, Villa may feel slightly less content, however, with two wins and two defeats to open the campaign. In their first game it was a heavy 5-1 loss to Newcastle at St James’ Park but the Villains did bounce back. Everton were thrashed 4-0 and Burnley beaten 3-1, lifting Villa up the table. However, their momentum was halted with a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the final game before the international break.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have won seven points from their opening four games in what has been a tricky start to the campaign. The Eagles opened with a 1-0 win over newly-promoted Sheffield United but then lost by the same scoreline to Arsenal. There was then a draw against Brentford but Palace returned to winning ways by beating Wolves 3-2 in a game that really came to life after half time. The Eagles sit seventh and will be hoping the international break is a good opportunity to rest up ahead of a tough run of fixtures.
