On Saturday, Crystal Palace will play host to Aston Villa to kick off the 3rd game in their 2022-23 Premier League campaign. Crystal Palace managed to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield last week, and with this confidence, they will be hoping to pick up their first win of the season. On the other hand, Villa made a losing start to their campaign but they managed to pick up a 2-1 win over Everton last weekend.
Patrick Vieira’s side have emerged with a point from a tough opening set of fixtures which pitted Palace against two of last season’s top five. Steven Gerrard’s Villa have had a far more agreeable schedule against newly-promoted Bournemouth and nearly-relegated Everton but could claim just one unconvincing victory against the latter. Based on how these teams have been playing, this one should be a pretty even contest.
Vieira was able to give Michael Olise a few minutes at the end of Palace’s creditable draw against Liverpool on Monday night but is still waiting on a return for James McArthur. James Tomkins joins goalkeeper Jack Butland on the sidelines while Nathan Ferguson suffered another injury setback earlier in August.
No sooner had Gerrard brought a center-back back into the fold than he lost another. Tyrone Mings looked his manager right in the eyes just in time as the former captain’s importance ballooned following the Achilles tendon rupture suffered by summer arrival Diego Carlos.
While the Brazilian is set to be sidelined for six months, Ezri Konsa is all but guaranteed to restore his partnership with Mings at the back as fellow defender Kortney Hause is continuing his recovery from a knee injury. Philippe Coutinho and Matty Cash were both forced off in the closing stages of Villa’s frantic win over Everton but Gerrard insisted: “We’ll have enough time to get them right for next week.”
