After a great performance in front of their own fans against the Citizens and a memorable 3:2 victory, players of Norwich couldn’t do much in their back to back matches on the road.
Firstly they have suffered 2:0 loss against Burnley, but then also got outplayed by Crystal Palace with the same result, conceding from the penalty kick, trying to get back into the match but without success.
They had much more of the ball possession in the second halftime and just when they risked the most, they paid the price of conceding the second goal in the second minute of added time.
Defensive midfielder Trybull (4/0) is injured, as well as goalkeeper Fahrmann (1/0), central back Zimmermann (1/0) and left-back Lewis (7/0). Goalkeeper Krul (6/0) is doubtful, as well as midfielder Vrancic (2/0) for the moment.
Aston Villa is looking better in recent weeks, as the side now surely looks competitive in the relegation fight at least, after two starting defeats early in August.
They come from a 2:2 draw at home against Burnley, despite having the lead twice during the game. However, despite much more of the ball possession, the Villans actually simply couldn’t hold onto the lead and break the game in their favor.
The team is now still inside the relegation zone, having five points out of seven rounds played.
Central back Chester comes back from injury and remains with questionable match fitness for now. Left-back Target and forward Wesley (7/2) are doubtful for now.
Norwich has seen over 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches against Aston Villa.
Goals look very likely in this one since both of the teams to work far better in their offensive parts of the team than what their defensive show reliability early into the season.
Norwich should try with an attacking approach here and should make the game very open, however, they are troubled with injuries, especially in the defense and aren’t to be trusted at the back.
