Aston Villa has slipped out of European position and is now hoping to put its top-half footing right when it visits Crystal Palace early Sunday (start time 7am ET on NBCSN and Online via NBCSports.com).
Villa’s claimed just one of six available points in dropping to 11th on the table, seven points behind seventh-place Tottenham.
Palace’s 41 points are good for 13th place, and the Eagles have seen Wilfried Zaha back on the score sheet while Villa could welcome Jack Grealish back to the starting lineup after a long absence.

Dead rubber? Please. If Newcastle 3-4 Man City taught us anything we should be in for relatively carefree entertainment. And Christian Benteke could be key for Crystal Palace against his old team. Crystal Palace 3-2 Aston Villaaz
