Opinion: 2 Good Changes Gerrard Made In The Second Half That Helped Him Beat Crystal Palace

Aston Villa fans will be pleased with the move to sign Steven Gerrard to replace Smith Dean. Note that Aston Villa beat Crystal Palace 1-2 at Selhurst Park in London. This means that Steven Gerrard won two games in a row with Aston Villa.

However, the main highlights of the match were Targett's goal, Crystal Palace's pressure, VAR's response to Luiz's red card and Aston Villa's defensive composure. Therefore, this article will focus on two good decisions Steven Gerrard made in winning his second match as Aston Villa's manager. Take a look!

1. Getting Started with Ashley Young.

The decision to start Young against Crystal Palace paid off. Remember that Young adds a lot to attack and defense. He was the creator of Aston Villa's first goal. On defense, the supporting player made some important interceptions in the midfield.

2. Changing the 4-4-2 formation in the second half to absorb the pressure from Crystal Palace.

In the second half, Steven Gerrard replaced Ramsey with Luiz. This decision is commendable because it helped Aston defend more compactly. Luiz's promotion allowed Aston Villa to move from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2.
