Crystal Palace suffered another setback in the Premier League. After a humiliating defeat in the match with Liverpool (0: 7), the Eagles were unable to rehabilitate themselves in the confrontation with Aston Villa.
“Villa” coped with Roy Hodgson’s team without any problems, even despite the fact that the Birminghamians spent the entire second half outnumbered. Bertrand Traore, Courtney House and El Ghazi scored for Dean Smith’s team.
Palace created a minimum number of dangerous chances and failed to hit the gate of Emiliano Martinez.
In a side-by-side match, Fulham hosted Southampton. The teams did not please viewers on the holiday – the meeting ended with a dreary zero.
