CRY
90+3
That's it - Palace secure a great win.
90'
 
Gayle collects the ball just inside his own half and runs at pace before leathering one into the top corner from 25 yards out.
Aston Villa Substitution
Crystal Palace Substitution
85'
A point will suit neither manager but there have been some good performances.

odd aspect to football is a poor game can have many good performances, plenty from #cpfc at #avfc albeit mainly in a defensive spoiling role

80'
Ward shoots just over from the edge of the box as the visitors look to steal the win.
Aston Villa Substitution
75'
Bannan swings a free-kick into the box but Villa clear.
Crystal Palace Substitution
69'
Can either side grab a winner?

Much better at #avfc v #cpfc, still goalless and error-ridden but much more attacking intent inc Bannan hitting post

Aston Villa Substitution
Crystal Palace Substitution
63'
Puncheon lifts the ball into the box but Clark clears.
58'
Agbonlahor gets away inside the box but he shoots straight at Speroni from an acute angle.
52'
Guzan tips a Bannan effort on to the post from outside the box – what an effort.
50'
Bannan whips a ball into the box but Delaney is there to head clear again – he has been superb.
46'
Second period underway.
45+1
And that is it from the first half.
45'
Delph fires well over from 28 yards having won the ball in midfield and charged forward at speed.
35'
This game has been worryingly short in quality as this time Jerome’s pass has too much on it and it is out for a goal kick.
27'
Jedinak makes a yard of space but he loses his footing and Villa clear.
22'
Weimann gets past his man but his cut-back from the byline is too close to Speroni.
20'
Puncheon can't get the required purchase on his effort from 30 yards out and Guzan collects. Chance!
16'
Gabbidon rises to head a Delph cross clear - Villa having the better of it but struggling to create.
9'
Lowton fires a free-kick into the box following a foul on Albrighton but Delaney is there to clear.
3'
Aston Villa are winless in six PL matches on Boxing Day (D3-L3), since a 4-0 home win against Everton in 2005. They have only won two other Boxing Day PL matches, 4-1 at home against Spurs in 1997 and 2-0 at Derby in 1999.

And we are underway.
14:55
MATCH ODDS: Aston Villa (10/11), Draw (5/2), Crystal Palace (18/5).
14:50
STATS: Aston Villa have failed to score in four of their last five Barclays Premier League home games. None of the last 13 matches in all competitions between Villa and Palace has ended as an away win (seven home wins, six draws). No team has picked up fewer away points than Crystal Palace this season (three, level with Sunderland). Villa have won only one of their last 12 Premier League games played on December 26, that a 4-0 drubbing of Everton in 2005 (W1 D4 L7).
14:45
Tony Pulis: "We've got (Dwight) Gayle who could play up (front) but that leaves it thin, that leaves us a little bit short. Gayley's been alright, there's no problems. It's just a very big ask for someone who was playing non-League football only a year ago to come up and play in the Premier League, especially for such a young lad as well. That is a big, big call. When you're in the position we're in, it's tough to get young players to carry the flag for you."
14:40
Paul Lambert: "If you look at the middle of the table, there's nothing in it. One win takes you up a few places. They're two hard games but we'll go and give it our all and try to win. If we play like that, then I'll be more than happy, just get the break and try to get a win."
