  • GOOOAAALLL! Villa lead 1-0 just before the break! Grealish is fouled around 30 yards out and Hourihane whips the free-kick into the penalty area, which Palace fail to deal with and it gets all the way to the back post where Trezeguet was waiting and he drills the ball past Guaita and into the back of the net. Huge goal for the hosts.

  • GOOOAAALLL! Trezeguet with his second goal of the game to put Villa 2-0 ahead! McGinn whips a cross into the box, which is headed clear, but only to Hourihane, who feeds Trezeguet in the box and he pokes it past Guaita and into the back of the net from close range. Poor defending from Palace to allow Trezeguet the time to turn and pick his spot.
