Ex-Aston Villa boss John Gregory issues rallying cry on Twitter, predicts result v Norwich

John Gregory believes Aston Villa will beat Norwich City 3-1 this weekend.

Ex-Aston Villa manager John Gregory has taken to Twitter to issue a rallying cry to his former club - and believes they will beat Norwich City 3-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Villa remain bottom of the Premier League table after Tuesday's 2-0 defeat away at West Ham, and sit ten points adrift of safety right now.

With just two wins to their name, it's been a frustrating time for manager Remi Garde, who was appointed as boss three months ago following the departure of Tim Sherwood.

The most frustrating aspect for Garde is that Villa didn't even manage to bring in one new signing during the January transfer window, meaning Garde now has to try and rescue the club with the same squad of players that has struggled so far this term.

This weekend throws up arguably the biggest game of the season so far, as Villa host Norwich City at Villa Park, with the Canaries being the team currently hovering outside the relegation zone.

Now, former Villa boss John Gregory has taken to Twitter to rally the fans together, stating that it's time for Villa to make it happen in their fight against the drop.

Gregory also predicted that Villa would beat Norwich 3-1 this weekend, which would give Villa hope of a miraculous escape from relegation.
