Watch a Crystal Palace v Aston Villa live stream as the Premier League action continues
Crystal Palace v Aston Villa live stream, Saturday August 20, 3.00pm
Looking for a Crystal Palace v Aston Villa live stream? You're in the right place.
Crystal Palace and Aston Villa face off at Selhurst Park on Saturday, with both teams looking to build on encouraging results in their last outings.
Patrick Vieira’s side travelled to Anfield to face Liverpool on Monday without big expectations, following a run of 10 consecutive defeats against the Reds.
However, the Eagles earned a 1-1 draw on Merseyside to get their first point of the season on the board.
Wilfried Zaha’s opener was cancelled out by a Luis Diaz leveller, which came after Darwin Nunez was sent off for the hosts.
It has been a tough start to the season for Palace, whose draw in Liverpool came after an opening day 2-0 defeat against Arsenal.
They will be targeting a victory on home soil with the visit of Villa, who are coming off their first three points of the campaign.
Steven Gerrard’s side recovered from a disappointing 2-0 defeat at newly-promoted Bournemouth to beat Everton 2-1 last weekend.
Danny Ings and Emiliano Buendia were both on target, before Lucas Digne’s late own goal gave the Toffees a consolation.
Villa had the edge in this fixture last season, winning 2-1 in London before holding Palace to a 1-1 draw at Villa Park in May.
Kick-off is at 3.00pm BST on Saturday August 20 and it's not being shown on UK TV. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, 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 t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
