Norwich sit bottom of the table, their return to the Championship seemingly inevitable. They’ve managed just one draw and one win in their last five games, including losing 0-3 to Newcastle last time out.
A win for Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa would take them above the magical 40 point mark and all but guarantee that they stay in the Premier League. However, they have only mustered one point in their last five matches.
The match will see Norwich boss Dean Smith return to Villa Park, having departed in November 2021. But it could be an unhappy reunion; defeat here could see Norwich relegated if the Watford vs Burnley game goes Burnley's way.
Josh Sargent has recovered from injury to make the Canaries' bench. Aston Villa continue to be beset with injury problems, but Lucas Digne returns here.
Here's how they line up:
Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Digne, McGinn, Iroegbunam, Ramsey, Baily Coutinho Watkins.
Norwich: Krul, Aarons, Byram, Hanley, Williams, Normann, McLean, Dowell, Lees-Melou, Rashica, Pukki.
Both these teams are in desperate need of a win. Find out if either can get one by watching the Aston Villa vs Norwich live stream.
