Crystal Palace 1-2 Aston Villa: Eze return only positive for Vieira

While Patrick Vieira’s side had been in excellent form heading into the game, their seven-match unbeaten run came to an end in rather meek fashion.

Matt Targett exploited Palace’s problems from set-pieces by scoring within the first fifteen minutes after the home side failed to clear their lines from a corner and, while Palace enjoyed a lot of the possession, failed to convert that into anything meaningful.

Eze’s return, of course, is a major positive for the long-term and a late Marc Guehi goal did provide a fleeting glimmer of hope but the tame attacking performance will be of concern to Vieira.
