Only Chelsea (one) and Liverpool (one) have lost fewer Premier League matches than Palace this season, with the Eagles suffering just two defeats in their opening 12 matches, but they have been the draw specialists, sharing the points on seven occasions, winning only three times.
A total of 16 points from 12 games represents a solid start to the campaign, with the capital outfit currently sitting 10th in the table, just four points behind fifth-placed Arsenal heading into the next set of fixtures.
Patrick Vieira‘s side recorded back-to-back 2-0 wins over Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of their trip to Burnley last weekend, and they would have fancied their chances of collecting another three points against Sean Dyche‘s team.
Palace twice led at Turf Moor, with Christian Benteke (two) and Marc Guehi on the scoresheet, but Burnley scored three goals of their own, as the points were shared in a 3-3 draw.
The Eagles will welcome Villa on Saturday before back-to-back away matches against Leeds United and Manchester United, and it will be fascinating to see what the club can achieve this season under Vieira.
Palace will again be without the services of James McArthur due to a hamstring problem, while Nathan Ferguson is also unlikely to be involved as he recovers from a calf injury.
Vieira otherwise has a fully-fit squad, and it would not be a surprise to see largely the same side that took to the field for the first whistle against Burnley last weekend.
Benteke’s brace will see him feature at centre-forward once again, but there could be a change in attack, with Odsonne Edouard potentially replacing Jordan Ayew.
As for Villa, Bertrand Traore and Trezeguet remain out with thigh and knee injuries respectively, but Douglas Luiz will be back in the squad, having recovered from a hamstring strain.
Gerrard will be tempted to introduce Leon Bailey into the starting XI, but the 24-year-old could ultimately be named on the bench once again, with Danny Ings and Watkins featuring in the final third.

Ashley Young and Anwar El Ghazi are also pushing for spots in the attacking areas, but Jacob Ramsey is expected to retain his position in the middle of the park.
