Norwich vs Aston Villa prediction: Norwich 2-1 Aston Villa

The Championship Champions take on the play-off winners.

Just four months ago, Norwich lifted the second division title at Villa Park but a lot has changed since then.

The Canaries have pulled off one of the biggest shocks in Premier League history and are doing ok in mid-table.

The Villans meanwhile have been their own worst enemies, constantly throwing away points from winning positions including last weekend.

Only three players have scored more Premier League goals than Teemu Pukki. The Finn is 3/1 to score first and 10/11 to add to his tally.

Emi Buendía has also been a threat. The Argentine is 9/1 to score first and 3/1 to get his first of the campaign.

Wesley has been Aston Villa’s main man for goals. He is 11/2 to open the scoring and 2/1 to net anytime.

Norwich’s return to the Premier League has not been perfect but it’s certainly been entertaining.

Last weekend, they suffered their fifth defeat of the campaign already, going down 2-0 at Selhurst Park to Crystal Palace.

That was their second consecutive 2-0 away loss as they’d been beaten at Turf Moor by the same scoreline seven days earlier.

But, their home form is much better as they won their first home match of the season and were victorious in their most recent one too.

Back in August, Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick as they eased past Newcastle United 3-1 at home.

Then, a fortnight ago, they beat Manchester City 3-2 in one of the most famous shocks in Premier League history.

Amazing.

The only team to leave Carrow Road with something so far are Chelsea who won 3-2 in Norfolk.

If the Yellows are to survive, it appears it’s going to be because of their home form.

Can Daniel Farke’s men make it three wins out of four at home?

Villa to get their first away win of the season?

Aston Villa’s start to their first season back in the top-flight has been similar to that of their opponents.

They too have lost all three of their away matches, going down at Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Arsenal.

But, last weekend, they extended their unbeaten home run to three.

Despite taking the lead twice through Anwar El Ghazi and then John McGinn, they could only draw 2-2 with Burnley.

That match followed the pattern of Villa not being able to hold onto leads.

In fact, they have dropped more points from winning positions that anybody else in the Premier League, eight: three at Arsenal, three at Tottenham and two there.

They have now amassed five points from their last three on home soil, beating Everton and drawing with West Ham.

But, they are looking to avoid a tenth straight top-flight defeat on the road for the first time since 1925.

Dean Smith’s side are currently in 18th, one point and place below their hosts.

Thus, this is a massive match for both so will there be a winner at Carrow Road?

Daniel Farke could now be without up to a dozen players for this one.

Will the ever-growing injury list catch up with them?

Last weekend, Norwich became just the second team in history to give Premier League debuts to two different goalkeepers on the same day.

Ralf Fährmann, on loan from Schalke 04, started in goal before going off injured soon after with 35 year old Michael McGovern coming on for the remainder of the match.

Despite all of that, regular number one Tim Krul will be back available for this one.

In defence, Jamal Lewis broke his elbow last weekend so joins Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann on the sidelines.

Max Aarons is back from an injury of his own though so will start at right-back with Sam Byram switching to the other side.

Ibrahim Amadou will once again get the nod over Grant Hanley to play alongside Ben Godfrey.

The rest of the team will be unchanged from the side that started at Selhurst.

Moritz Leitner will continue in midfield with Marco Stiepermann and Kenny McLean.

Todd Cantwell and Emi Buendía, who have both shone so far, will be out-wide.

Alexander Tettey, Onel Hernández, Mario Vrančić and Tom Trybull are all injured.

Teemu Pukki will be up front; he scored five times in his first three games this season but has only netted once in the subsequent four.

Can he fire the Canaries to another home win?

As for Aston Villa, Dean Smith is also unlikely to make too many changes.

Tom Heaton has started every match in goal and there is no reason that’ll change.

In defence, Matt Targett made his league debut for the club last weekend and should keep his place ahead of former first choice Neil Taylor.

Frédéric Guilbert, Björn Engels and Tyrone Mings make up the back four.

Mings ranks in the top three this season for blocks, clearances and headed clearances, showing how important a figure he is to this side.

In midfield, Marvelous Nakamba and Conor Hourihane have come into the side recently with Douglas Luiz losing his place.

That extra body in midfield allows John McGinn to play higher up but does mean Jack Grealish is pushed out to the left.

It also means they can play only one out-and-out winger who’s likely to be Anwar El Ghazi after his goal last weekend.

Jota, Jonathan Kodjia and Trézéguet will all miss out.

Up front, as always, will be Wesley.

Can he add to his two goals this season and lead Villa to their first Premier League away win since the opening day of the 2015/16 season?
