With Joachim Andersen scoring an own goal in the first half, Aston Villa defeated 10-man Crystal Palace 1-0 to win the Premier League. The returning Wilfried Zaha had an early goal disallowed for offside by video assistant refereeing. Still, the home team eventually took the lead when Joachim Andersen stuffed Matty Cash's low cross into his net. Unai Emery's team had an early scare. After Cheick Doucoure was given a second yellow card for a late challenge on Calum Chambers, Palace's problems worsened after the hour mark.
Patrick Vieira's team couldn't get back on track as their struggles in front of the goal continued. The defeat extended Palace's nine-match winless streak, but Vieira's team remains six points above the relegation zone. They haven't won a game in 2023, and their worrying slide toward relegation continues as they play Man City and Arsenal in their next three games, which can decide their fate.
