Crystal Palace predicted XI to face Aston Villa: Viera has big striking decision to make

How will Crystal Palace line up against Aston Villa?

Crystal Palace return to the action this weekend at home to Aston Villa.

The Eagles were beaten in their first game of the campaign at home to Arsenal.

They responded to that loss with a decent draw away at Liverpool last time out.

Here is how they could line up against Villa....

GK: Vicente Guaita

The Spaniard put in a solid performance against Liverpool but couldn’t do anything about the Reds’ goal.

RB: Nathaniel Clyne

He has started both games so far this season at right-back.

CB: Joachim Andersen

The defender was on the receiving end of Darwin Nunez’s headbutt and is thankfully alright.

CB: Marc Guehi

He unfortunately scored an own goal against Arsenal in the last home match.

LB: Tyrick Mitchell

Like Clyne, he has also started both matches so far this term.

CM: Cheick Doucoure

He has made a decent impression so far having moved to Crystal Palace from RC Lens earlier in the transfer window.

CM: Jeffrey Schlupp

The former Leicester City man provides useful pace and power in the centre of midfield.

RW: Jordan Ayew

He tends to get a lot of starts for the Eagles.

CAM: Ebe Eze

The attacking midfielder will be hoping he can cause Aston Villa some problems as he looks to stamp his mark on the 2022/23 campaign.

LW: Wilfried Zaha

He opened his account for the season with a cool finish past Alisson in front of the Kop last time out.

ST: Odsonne Edouard

Patrick Viera has a decision to make as to who to start up front, with Jean-Phillipe Mateta waiting in the wings as well.
