In one of the most crucial Premier League matches of this festive season, Aston Villa meet with their fellow strugglers Norwich City at 3pm this Thursday afternoon.
The Villans have very fond memories of the last time they faced the Canaries earlier in the campaign, thrashing them 5-1 at Carrow Road, though one would feel that Daniel Farke’s men aren’t going to roll over so easily on this occasion.
Despite not being halfway through 2019/2020 yet, this meeting is already a relegation six-pointer as both sides find themselves in the relegation zone with Dean Smith’s men in 18th and the visitors in 19th and three points separating them.
Neither team are in much form whatsoever and you’d have to go back to 25 November and 23 November respectively to find their most recent league triumphs.
Can either of them stop the rot in the Midlands and deliver their fans a slightly belated Christmas present?
