Norwich City hosts Aston Villa
Norwich City hosts Aston Villa at their own Carrow Road in a game from the 8th round of the Premier League. Let’s talk about it a little bit in our English Premier League predictions, shall we?
For the newcomers Norwich City life is hard at the Premier League. Right now they are starting to understand once again how difficult it is in this league. The Canaries are currently 17th in the standings with 6 points, being only one point above their next opponent Aston Villa and the relegation zone.
Norwich City’s current form is far from impressive, too. One win in the last five games and four defeats. Shockingly for many, this win came against one of the strongest teams in the league – the current champion Manchester City. Since their win against the Cityzens, Norwich lost twice against Burnley and Crystal Palace.
For this match at the Carrow Road the Canaries will be without the injured Tim Krul, Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose. Their biggest hope for success remains the Finnish striker Teemu Pukki, who has scored six goals in the league so far.
How we pointed out, Aston Villa are in the relegation zone of the Premier League at this moment. Just like Norwich City, Villa are among the newcomers in the league this season. And this is not easy for them.
In their last four games in the league Aston Villa won only two points. One of them was won in the previous round, when the former European champions met Burnley at home. The game ended with a 2-2 draw. Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn scored for the hosts.
In our English Premier League predictions for the game between Norwich City and Aston Villa we can say that it’s going to be a competitive match. These two teams are performing in a pretty similar way so far, being separated by just one point.
