Kick Off – 15.00pm Monday 28th December 2015

Norwich hosts Aston Villa at Carrow Road on Monday in the Premier League, as two of the league’s strugglers meet in a vital clash.
The home side suffered a 3-0 defeat at Tottenham on Boxing Day. Harry Kane opened the scoring for Spurs from the penalty spot, before adding a second goal. Young midfielder Tom Carroll scored the third in the second half.
The Canaries are now 17th in the Premier League table, only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.
The visitors remain routed to the bottom of the Premier League table on just eight points, after a 1-1 home draw with West Ham on Boxing Day. The Hammers took the lead late in the first half through an Aaron Cresswell strike.
Villa equalised in the second half, courtesy of a rather dubious penalty kick, with summer signing Jordan Ayew scoring from the spot. The forward has now scored in consecutive games for the Villans.
The draw means that Villa are now nine points away from safety in the table and looking destined for the drop to the Championship.

Norwich v Aston Villa Match Prediction

Norwich have enjoyed some decent results in recent weeks and this is a must win clash for the Canaries. If Villa are to have any chance of staying up then they need to start picking-up wins. Unfortunately for Remi Garde’s team I can see the home side claiming a narrow win in a low-scoring contest.
