Aston Villa dealt midfield blow ahead of Norwich

Aston Villa dealt midfield blow ahead of Norwich

Aston Villa have been dealt a blow on the personnel front ahead of their meeting with Norwich.

Norwich vs Aston Villa

Aston Villa are back in Premier League action on Tuesday evening vs Norwich, facing the Canaries at Carrow Road.

Villa have had a mixed start to life under Steven Gerrard, though they did well to only lose 1-0 vs Liverpool this past weekend, with the penalty given for Mohamed Salah’s goal somewhat questionable.

But, Villa still remain in the bottom half of the Premier League table and need to put together a decent run of form in the second half of 2021/22 if hey wish to mount any sort of challenge for European football.

And, vs Norwich, they probably stand a decent chance of beginning that run. Dean Smith lifted Norwich slightly when he took over, but they are still bottom of the league and have scored just eight goals all season.

Aston Villa dealt midfield blow

Ahead of the Norwich tie, Steven Gerard spoke to the press on Monday.

When doing so, the former Liverpool man provided a concerning update on Marvelous Nakamba.

The midfielder started vs Liverpool last weekend, but has since picked up a knee issue which will see him out vs Norwich.

Gerrard also confirmed Nakamba will see a specialist on Tuesday, which seemingly suggests the issue is fairly serious.

“Marvelous Nakamba will miss the game through injury. He’s recently had an MRI scan which has confirmed a knee issue.

“He’ll go and see a specialist on Tuesday, and we’ll have a further update for you then.”
