Crystal Palace will be absolutely gutted by the nature of that defeat. They drop to eighth with seven points from five matches, with Villa jumping to seventh with nine points. Palace are next in action against Fulham next Saturday, while Villa can turn their attentions to the Europa Conference League, with Legia Warszawa their opponents as they begin their group-stage campaign on Thursday.

Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace

And breathe! It's full-time at Villa Park, and Aston Villa take the spoils after scoring three late goals to break Crystal Palace's hearts. The Eagles went ahead through Edouard's finish on the break, and they still led with just three minutes of the 90 remaining. However, Villa substitute Duran levelled with a ferocious volley before the award of a contentious penalty allowed Luiz to put Villa ahead deep into stoppage time. With Palace chasing the game, Bailey turned in Diaby's cross to add a late third for the hosts. What a win for Emery's men!

Now it's Palace desperately looking to carve out one last chance! They will feel hard done by following the award of that penalty. There should still be plenty more stoppage time to play!

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL! DOUGLAS LUIZ SURELY WINS IT FOR VILLA! The Brazilian stutters in his run-up before sending Johnstone the wrong way, caressing the kick into the bottom-left corner. Villa have snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. 2-1!

THE PENALTY STANDS! Wow – late drama at Villa Park! Richards appeared to get a touch on the ball with his sliding challenge, but after a long review at the pitchside monitor, Darren England sticks with his original decision!
