Crystal Palace beat Aston Villa 1-0

Crystal Palace beat Aston Villa 1-0

Aston Villa goal chalked off vs Crystal Palace Perhaps the biggest VAR talking point on Saturday in the Premier League occurred at Selhurst Park.

Former Aston Villa striker and current Palace front-man Jordan Ayew scored his second goal of the season with 20 minutes remaining, following a defensive mix-up that allowed the Ghanian to jink through and fire past Tom Heaton.

Kevin Friend adjudged that Grealish had dived in the build up to Henri Lansbury putting the ball in the net late on for Villa, a goal which would have been an equaliser, and replays showed that there was contact.

The sooner sending off had handed Roy Hodgson's aspect the benefit they wanted to interrupt Villa's resistance and keep the optimistic begin that was given impetus by final weekend's win at Outdated Trafford.

Moments later and the £22million summer signing nearly got lucky as John McGinn's cross cannoned off him, with Guaita again able to hold possession.

Until that point, there seemed no way past Heaton, who twice tipped over free-kicks from Luka Milivojevic either side of the break.

Villa, who had been lowered to 10 males following the 54th minute dismissal of Trezeguet after the midfielder collected a second yellow card, have been incensed and protests continued after the ultimate whistle.

Ayew's goal came in the 73rd, collecting a pass from Jeffrey Schlupp before bundling past Tyrone Mings and Grealish and then finishing with aplomb.
