The former Leicester City midfielder cancelled out Ollie Watkins’ goal as Crystal Palace earned a Premier League point at Aston Villa.

Watkins, who had been a doubt for the game after sustaining an ankle injury against Liverpool in midweek, beat Guehi to Lucas Digne’s cross after 69 minutes with his first shot of the game.

Danny Ings twice went close inside the opening eight minutes for Villa, shooting wide following a darting run to the near post, and volleying over from Joachim Andersen’s attempted clearance.

Palace offered a positive response, but Wilfried Zaha’s stinging strike was parried by Emiliano Martinez and the Villa goalkeeper was also equal to Nathaniel Clyne’s low effort.

Schlupp, who last hit the back of the net in the 1-1 draw against Burnley on February 26, has now scored four top-flight goals from 30 appearances. He opened his account for the campaign against Leicester City on October 3, scoring during a 2-2 draw.
