“Zaniolo broke his metatarsal and it is bad news,” Unai Emery said in his pre-match press conference. “He was a doubt, but he did the effort to play on Monday because he had pain in his back after the match we played against Lille.

“He did the effort because we tried to use every players. He played 10 minutes and he broke his metatarsal and he will be out of the Euros. It is very sad for him. At the beginning of the season it will be difficult for him.

“Mings, Buendia, Kamara, Ramsey, Tielemans, Cash and Morgan are not available. We will play there being competitive.”

Following their 3-1 win against them in the reverse fixture – Villa are looking to complete their first league double over Palace since 1980-81 – when they most recently won the English top-flight title.
