Well, Aston Villa looked dead and buried given we couldn’t capitalise on our better games since the restart of the Premier League, but against Crystal Palace the stars seemed to align for us.

Having seen a favour from VAR, Palace’s opening goal was scrubbed out and we slowly began turning on some style and a Trezeguet brace gave us a very well deserved victory on the day to keep slim hopes of survival alive.

Too little, too late, who knows but it brightened up the weekend for sure.

Completing the top five best performers on the day in their system were Pepe Reina (7.76), Conor Hourihane (7.69), John McGinn (7.60) and Douglas Luiz (7.48).

Extra mentions for Ahmed Elmohamady and Jack Grealish who also scored above 7.
