Villa have won 13, drawn four and lost 18 of their 35 Premier League matches this season to collect 43 points, which has left them in 12th position in the table ahead of their final three games.
Steven Gerrard‘s side could still finish in the top half of the division but are only three points ahead of 15th-placed Southampton, so a lot could change in terms of their league position before the end of the season.
Villa managed to pick up seven points from their three matches against Leicester City, Norwich City and Burnley between April 23 and May 7, but they suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday.
Gerrard’s side now have back-to-back home games against Palace and Burnley before finishing their campaign away to the champions Manchester City on May 22, which could be crucial in terms of the title.
Villa, who have only picked up 21 points from their 17 home matches this season, beat Palace 2-1 in the reverse match at Selhurst Park earlier this term, while they also recorded a 3-0 victory when the two teams last locked horns at Villa Park back in December 2020.
Villa will again be missing Kortney Hause and Leon Bailey through injury, but Jacob Ramsey could be in the squad, having recently returned to full first-team training with his teammates.
Ollie Watkins is expected to shake off the ankle problem that forced him off against Liverpool, and head coach Gerrard is unlikely to make many changes from Tuesday’s fixture.
Fresh from agreeing a permanent move to the club, Philippe Coutinho will again feature in an attacking position, while Douglas Luiz and John McGinn should be joined in midfield by Marvelous Nakamba.
Palace will have to make a late check on Marc Guehi, who was forced off against Watford last weekend, so James Tomkins is on standby to feature in the middle of the defence.
Nathan Ferguson remains a long-term absentee due to a thigh problem, while Vicente Guaita is a major doubt due to the injury that forced him to sit out the victory over Watford.

Vieira has plenty of options for change, but the side is expected to be similar to the one that took to the field for the first whistle against the Hornets, with Wilfried Zaha again being joined by Michael Olise and Odsonne Edouard in the final third of the field.

Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne; Luiz, Nakamba, McGinn; Coutinho; Ings, Watkins
