Crystal Palace

Last updated: Sat 31 August 2019 08:03
In Brief

Excitement from Old Trafford win quickly suffocated after shameful early exit from League Cup. Sakho and Tomkins remain sidelined. Dann fresh concern.

Looking Back

Palace once again proved that they can be lethal on fast break on visit to Man United, with 2:1 win achieved deep in stoppage time first ever away victory at Old Trafford in Premier League era.

Eagles struggle against sides that sit deep on them though and this proven once again on Tuesday when shameful exit from League Cup suffered vs. Colchester. Home match finished 0:0 and then penalty shootout was lost.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hodgson set to pick Ayew in attack once again after Benteke started in midweek, with veteran Cahill also likely to make second league start at the back.

Still without 2 main inner defenders Sakho and Tomkins. Former back in training, but set to play for reserves this weekend.

Dann has hurt his hand in the League Cup clash and he is deemed doubtful.

Aston Villa

Last updated: Sat 31 August 2019 08:04
In Brief

Confidence growing after back-to-back wins. Captain Chester long-term absentee. Targett and Kodjia also set to miss.

Looking Back

Villains recorded first league success in last round when deserved 2:0 home win vs. Everton achieved. Guilbert, Jota and Wesley the main stars of this game.

Mood got even better on Tuesday when Aston Villa hammered Crewe Alexandra 6:1 away from home in emphatic League Cup success.

Looking Ahead

Coach Smith used 4-1-4-1 shape vs. Everton and he is expected to stick to same formation and probably same line-up too.

Guilbert not only played very well last weekend, but also scored in midweek and he seems determined to establish as main right-back.

Targett was taken off injured vs. Crewe and together with Kodjia won't be available. Chester definitely remains out as he continues rehabilitation.
