Full-time: A pulsating encounter ends Crystal Palace 3-2 Aston Villa as Roy Hodgson's side came from behind twice to take maximum points.
90'+4
Villa win a controversial free-kick and if this goes in Hodgson will be fuming. No need to worry though as Konsa heads over the bar.
90'+3
Close! Targett crosses for Davis but his header comes off his shoulder and the ball drifts over the bar. Was that Villa's final chance?

GOAL! Crystal Palace 3-2 Aston Villa (Tyrick Mitchell): Palace are ahead for the first time this afternoon! Mitchell grabs his first senior goal after Villa failed to clear from Zaha's cross. Eze's shot is mishit and it falls into the path of the 21-year-old who bundles it over the line!

Off the woodwork! For the second time this afternoon Palace are denied by the crossbar! Everyone is expecting the cross but Eze goes for goal, whipping his shot towards the far post but he can only watch as it smashes off the woodwork.
81'
Zaha and Eze link up, with the former teeing up the latter but Konsa is there to make the block.
80'
Grealish is looking sharp as he rides a couple of challenges before feeding El Ghazi, as Villa win another corner. Ten minutes remaining, can either side grab a late winner?
77'
Villa come again in search of a third. McGinn crosses to the back post where Grealish drills a volley back into centre but Kouyate mops up.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 2-2 Aston Villa (Wilfried Zaha): Palace are level once again! Zaha drives down the left flank, carves inside and fires a shot at goal. It takes a deflection off Elmohamady, wrong-footing the goalkeeper and yet again Villa let a lead slip.

Watkins runs onto McGinn's through ball but Butland makes the save. It wouldn't have counted as the offside flag is raised.

Yellow card! Yet another foul on Grealish and this time Ward goes into the book, as Villa win a free-kick close to the corner flag on the left. It comes to nothing.
68'
Block! Eze drives forward menacingly, opens up his body and curls a shot towards goal. Hause anticipates it and makes an important headed block to keep Villa ahead.
66'
He's barely on the pitch two minutes and Grealish has already won Villa a free-kick, this one on the left flank. It's comfortable for Butland to deal with as he rises highest to claim the delivery.
