Aston Villa welcome Crystal Palace to Villa Park for an exciting clash on a busy day of Boxing Day Premier League fixtures.


Villa's fantastic season continued apace last weekend as they made light work of West Brom, winning 3-0.

Palace however, will still be licking their wounds after they were demolished by Liverpool, shipping seven goals in the process.

Villa are currently nine points off the top of the league but, with two games in hand, could be right in amongst it sooner rather than later after the Premier League Christmas and Boxing Day fixtures.

Palace will simply be hoping to bounce back straight away as they look to make inroads into a congested table.
