Aston Villa v Crystal Palace live: How to watch the Premier League from anywhere in the world
Aston Villa v Crystal Palace live, Sunday May 15, 2pm BST
Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss to Liverpool by hosting Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s side suffered a narrow 2-1 loss to the Reds last time out. Douglas Luiz gave Villa an early lead but goals from Joel Matip and Sadio Mane kept Liverpool’s title bid on track. Gerrard will have taken plenty of positives from his side’s performance, and Villa know a win here could see them climb into the top half of the table with just one week of the season remaining.
Crystal Palace could also end the weekend in the top 10 if they win at Villa Park. Patrick Vieira’s side secured a 1-0 triumph over Watford last weekend, having beaten Southampton seven days earlier. Palace have already matched their points tally from last season and will be looking to finish the campaign strong in a bid to generate momentum for the next term.
Villa will have to do without Kortney Hause and Leon Bailey for the visit to Palace. Jacob Ramsey and Ollie Watkins will have to be assessed after the knocks, but both players will hope to at least be named to the matchday squad.
Emiliano Buendia will be hoping to return to the starting XI after starting the loss to Liverpool as substitutes, while Carney Chukwuemeka is pushing for his second Premier League start.
Marc Guehi was sent off in the win over Watford with an ankle problem and is unlikely to be involved here. Joel Ward replaced centre-back at the weekend and could continue in that role, with Tyrick Mitchell returning to left-back.
Vicente Guaita is on the treatment table so former England keeper Jack Butland will continue between the sticks, while Nathan Ferguson will not play again until next season due to various injury issues.
Kick-off is at 14:00 BST on Sunday May 15. See below for international streaming options.

If you’re out of the country for a series of Premier League fixtures, unfortunately your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, all you have to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
