Aston Villa 1-1 Crystal Palace: Jeff Schlupp salvages point for Patrick Vieira’s Eagles

Aston Villa and Crystal Palace both kept their hopes of a top half Premier League finish intact after a pulsating 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

Danny Ings passed up three opportunities for the hosts to take the lead in the first half, but Steven Gerrard’s men finally made the breakthrough when Ollie Watkins slid in his 10th of the season in front of the Holte End (69).

However, the Eagles netted a deserved leveller to earn a point when Jeff Schlupp arrived at the back post to beat Emi Martinez (81).

Villa stay 12th as a result, four points behind 10th-placed Bright with two games to play, while Palace remain a point and a place further ahead.

Aston Villa host Burnley and Crystal Palace travel to Everton on Thursday at 7.45pm. Villa then travel to Manchester City and Palace host Manchester United on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday at 4pm.
