Aston Villa could not be playing Crystal Palace at a better time and welcome the Eagles to Villa Park desperate for three points.

Villa are deep in the relegation mire and need victory here to try and catch the likes of Watford and West Ham above them.

They come into this clash with just four Premier League fixtures remaining and trickier opponents still to come.

And while Palace will not be pushovers, they have lost four games on the bounce and have little to play for.

Roy Hodgson will be desperate to get his men back to winning ways after a galling 3-2 defeat to Chelsea last time out, but Villa could take charge here.

Aston Villa v Crystal Palace team news

Aston Villa: Jack Grealish proved his fitness with 90 minutes against Manchester United in midweek, so any concerns of a foot injury sustained against Liverpool appear to have abated.

Full-back Matt Targett could miss Sunday’s game with hamstring trouble.

Crystal Palace: Gary Cahill suffered a hamstring injury against Chelsea and could miss the rest of the season. Mamadou Sakho will likely fill in, alongside Scott Dann.

Martin Kelly could be on the bench on Sunday after returning to training this week, having not played since January because of a calf injury.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Crystal Palace

Villa have endured a miserable summer on the whole but will see this game as a great chance to secure three points given Palace’s current form.

However, one boost for Hodgson is the return to goalscoring form of his two most lethal players—Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke.

Expect the Eagles to channel much of the play into these two stars. If Villa can keep them at bay then they could well pinch this tie.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Crystal Palace

(Aston Villa to win 2-1: 9/1 at Bet365)
