Aston Villa vs Norwich City Match Preview
Norwich City have improved considerably away from home since the November international break and look worth keeping on side when they visit Aston Villa.
As the stats above reveal, from late summer through to the autumn Norwich simply could not buy a goal on their travels and were losing game after game. But whatever manager Daniel Farke did during the November hiatus, it has made his team more of a threat.
The Canaries returned from the break with a 2-0 win at Everton and while they lost narrowly away to Southampton, they then ended Leicester’s nine-match sequence of victories by holding the Premier League’s second-placed club to a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium.
Admittedly, Norwich now have to try and overturn their worst result of the season, which was a 5-1 home defeat in early October against Villa, whose triumph in the Championship play-off final enabled both of these clubs to be promoted last term.
The problem for Villa is that since that big win in Norfolk, they have gone right off the boil and had suffered three consecutive league losses heading into the last weekend before Christmas.
The gap has certainly closed between these teams over the last few months, as it needed to for Norwich, and with their away form now much better, the visitors could pull off an upset here.
