It has been a good start for both men so far with Vieira guiding his Eagles to tenth in the table and a seven-game unbeaten run going into this match. Palace can go as high as sixth with a win.

Conor Gallagher has been a revelation on loan from Chelsea while Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke have regularly hit the back of the net in recent weeks.

As for Villa, Gerrard oversaw a debut victory against Brighton last weekend to push his side away from the relegation zone. There is still plenty of work to do however with four-point gaps to both 18th and eighth-place as the weekend begins.
