Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace: Both the Villans and Eagles are within an arm’s reach of a top-half finish ahead of their matchweek 37 clash at Villa Park on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, on Peacock Premium).
Steven Gerrard took over at Aston Villa (43 points) back on Nov. 11, when they sat 16th in the Premier League table. Fast-forward six months, now they sit 12th with 10th-place Leicester City (45 points) just two points ahead with three games left to play. 9th-place Brighton & Hove Albion (47 points) are also within reach with the Seagulls having played one game more than the three sides directly below them. Inversely, 13th-place Brentford and 14th-place Newcastle United (43 points each – 36 games played) could just as easily leapfrog Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Leicester and snatch a top-half finish for themselves.
As for Crystal Palace (44 points), Patrick Vieira has done a brilliant job to not only hold the club together during a period of significant transition, but to perhaps match or improve upon the club’s best-ever Premier League finish (10th, in 2014 -fifteen).
