Predicted Aston Villa line-up to play Norwich: Two changes from Garde

Villa Park

Here is how we predict Aston Villa and Norwich City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 6th February 2016 at 15:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 7/5, Draw 11/5, Norwich 21/10

Aston Villa welcome Norwich City to Villa Park on Saturday with the hosts desperate to get three more points on the board.

Remi Garde’s side are currently bottom of the Premier League table with just 13 points from 24 matches and with 10 points separating them from safety with time running out it is not looking good for the Villans.

That said, Norwich are only two points clear of the bottom three and will know the importance of sealing a victory of their own or risk swapping places with Newcastle United by the end of the weekend.

In early team news, Villa are without Jordan Amavi and Adama Traore due to injury and Jordan Ayew through suspension.

Garde is also unlikely to be able to call on Rudy Gestede, Libor Kozak and Carlos Sanchez who are all rated at only 25 per cent to be fit, although Ashley Westwood and Alan Hutton should be ready.

As for Norwich, they are without the suspended Alex Tettey while there are minor doubts regarding Robbie Brady and Graham Dorrans but both should be available if called upon.
