THE PREDICTION

A fixture backlog sees Aston Villa travel to Crystal Palace, having played Everton at Villa Park just three days previously. It would therefore be understandable if fatigue was to have a negative effect on Dean Smith’s side as this match goes on and the Eagles will be hoping to capitalise. Palace have won just one of their last six Premier League games against rock bottom Sheffield Utd and an Aston Villa side who triumphed 1-2 over Everton at Goodison Park in their most recent away fixture will prove difficult opponents. However, the recent flurry of games in quick succession may catch up to away side at Selhurst Park, therefore Crystal Palace draw no bet looks very much the smart play here with the home team having enjoyed two days of extra rest compared to their opponents.
