Palace began the game in confident fashion, as Jason Puncheon nearly bagged his third goal in a week when he fired an effort just over the bar from 25 yards out.

Villa responded with a solid play but as soon as they entered the final third of the pitch, they struggle to carve out any openings as the Palace backline tightened.

Just before the break, Palace had an appeal for a penalty when Yannick Bolasie went down in the area when he was challenged by Grant Holt, but Howard Webb waved play on much to the frustration of the winger.

Palace had the best chance of the game when Adrian Mariappa raided down the right and dug out a cross which found Marouane Chamakh in the area, but he could only head his effort wide of the post.
