Crystal Palace 1-2 Aston Villa: Eze returns the only positive for Patrick Vieira after tame performance

While Patrick Vieira’s side were in excellent shape heading into the game, their seven-game unbeaten streak ended rather smoothly.

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

Eze’s return, of course, is a major positive in the long run and a late goal from Marc Guehi gave a fleeting glimmer of hope, but the tame offensive performance will be a concern for Vieira.
