BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Substitute Jeffrey Schlupp scored an 81st-minute equalizer as Crystal Palace secured a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa in a match between two midtable teams in the Premier League. Three minutes after coming on, Schlupp finished from close range to cancel out Ollie Watkins’ 69th-minute opener for Villa. Villa’s late push to reclaim the lead proved in vain. Patrick Vieira’s Palace and Steven Gerrard’s Villa are in 12th and 13th places, respectively. They are a point apart.
