Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa

Recap of Saturday's game between Crystal Palace and Aston Villa: The Eagles trailed after just five minutes before coming back to win 3-1 at Selhurst Park with three straight goals.

For far too long, the only offensive strategy employed by Crystal Palace was to "get Wilfried the ball and just stay out of his way."

Palace has a fantastic creative counterbalance to Zaha's tempo and direct style in Eberechi Eze.

Intentionally slow and lumbering, but swift over short distances, a tight-alley dribbler with superb timing for passing and quickly changing direction.

There is no end to the threat they represent to the right back and center back when he goes wide and Zaha tucks inside (or vice versa).

Nightmares. Odsonne Edouard will score a good number of goals because he is close to Zaha and Eze, but he benefits the team most when he drops in between the lines as a facilitator.

Just three victories (3W-3D-8L) and two losses (3L-8L) have been recorded by Aston Villa in their previous 14 Premier League games dating back to last season (Norwich and Burnley)
