Aston Villa News and Form – Can Villa get the better of Norwich?

The Villains sunk further into trouble last weekend. They suffered a 3-1 home loss against Southampton. Villa started the game just outside of the drop zone ahead of Southampton on goal difference only. So that was the kind of fixture in which Aston Villa really needed to produce something. That was a golden opportunity to get some crucial points on the board. In their next two games, they will face Norwich and Watford, the only two sides heading into Christmas sitting below them in the table. So this is a massively crucial time of their survival quest.

It is a four-match losing streak that the Villains are on and they have lost seven of their last nine (W1 D1). Their record at Villa Park is W3 D2 L4 but they have lost their last two there. Aston Villa have averaged 1.33 goals per game this season (home and away combined. They have scored in all but one of their last eight, so do have that going for them. But they are in a defensive mess, having conceded at least two goals in each of their last five league outings. Given the run of fixtures they have, it’s getting to the ‘now or never’ point for them.

Norwich News and Form – Can the Canaries beat Aston Villa?

The Canaries could not hold on to a lead that they had earned for themselves at home against Wolves on the weekend. Norwich lost 2-1, which was their third defeat in their last four games (D1). Norwich have taken only one win in their last 13 league outings now and they have gotten cut badly adrift now. They will go into Boxing Day action six points away from safety. With them having only collected two points from their last five games, punters rightly may have a hard time trusting them.

Norwich have a W1 D2 L6 away record this season, their one victory happening at Everton. The Canaries have been terribly goal-shy on their travels, having scored only five goals in their nine road games. They have conceded at an average of 2 goals per Premier League fixture in this campaign. Just 22% of Norwich’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Eight of the twelve defeats which have come the way of Norwich have been by at least a two-goal margin. Norwich have conceded 73% of their away goals in the first half of fixtures.

Aston Villa vs Norwich Predictions

Aston Villa to win: Pressure on then. Aston Villa misfired at home against Southampton on the weekend and didn’t play well. They may find the defence of Norwich has a little more give in it than that of the Saints. Big chance for Villa. Home win.
