Aston Villa vs. Norwich: Match Preview

Ex-Aston Villa coach Dean Smith’s Norwich City could be the first team to get relegated this season from the Premier League.

The canaries will be getting in with a 3-0 loss against the magpies but things are positive at the Villa Park as they put an end to the bad run of form. 

Aston Villa and their bad run of form

Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa are struggling in the premier league.  Just 8 points above relegation battling Everton, Aston Villa are 15th on the premier league table.

It’s disappointing as Villa has only scored twice in their last 5 games which resulted in consecutive losses.

Talking about players, Lucas Digne is battling out a shoulder injury. While Ashley Young even after being considered part of Gerrard’s plan is still waiting for more game time. Coutinho and Bailey have been silent for a long time and possibly can be replaced by Ings and ex-Norwich Buendia in front.

In their last meeting, Ramsey and Watkins lit up carrow road in a 2-0 victory.

Since December Villa has been able to keep only one clean sheet along with only one win in their last seven matches.

Aston Villa has fixtures ahead with Man City and Liverpool which makes it very important for them to win this match.

Norwich City and their Fate

Appointing Dean Smith hasn’t changed circumstances for the canaries. Almost certain of relegation Norwich has to pull something miraculous to stay in the premier league. With only 5 games in hand, Norwich continues to remain at the bottom of the table. Dean Smith has several players out due to various reasons.

This includes the likes of Adam Idah, Ozan Kabak, Lukas Rupp, and more. The return of Josh Sargent to the matchday squad is a positive for the canaries. The canaries are on the very edge of conceding 70 goals per season which is a record in itself.

Even though all the odds are against them they still should be up for a fight.
