Comments:

League position: 20th This was Aston Villa's first win in the Premier League since opening day of the season (8 August 2015) so ending their club record run of 19 league games without a win. This was Remi Garde's first win as Villa manager in his 11th game in charge (all competitions). The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel ruled on the following: - Aston Villa’s goal against Crystal Palace on Tuesday 12th January 2016 was in fact a Wayne Hennessey own goal and has therefore not been credited to Joleon Lescott. (Circular 15 – 21st January 2016)

Comments:

League position: 7th Crystal Palace had now failed to score in four consecutive Premier League games for the first time since February 1998. Palace had been unbeaten in their last four Premier League away games (won two).
