The Aston Villa vs Norwich City Barclays Premier League match is set to kick off Mar. 2, 4:30 p.m. GMT (11:30 a.m. ET), at Villa Park.
The game will broadcast live on Sky Sports 3 and HD in the United Kingdom.
Delayed telecast is available on Premier League Extra Time and DIRECTV in the United States.
Live stream is available on NBC Sports Live Extra.
Villa’s defender Ryan Bertrand is fit to face his former club. Midfielder Ashley Westwood is has also recovered from a dead leg.
Norwich midfielders Leroy Fer and Jonas Gutierrez are out injured with hamstring and calf injuries respectively. Ryan Bennett should be fit for the match.
Aston Villa and Norwich seat side by side in the league table at 14th and 15thplace respectively. Both are on 28 points, and only a better goal difference pips Villa ahead of the Canaries.
The similarities continue. Both sides suffer from a chronic lack of goals. Norwich’s front line is the worse of the two, as the likes of Gary Hooper, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, and Johan Elmander are struggling mightily to find the back of the net. The Canaries haven’t scored more than a goal a game since mid-December.
Villa hasn’t scored in three games, and have an abysmal home record at Villa Park, having only won 12 of their last 51 home league matches.
The match might be entertaining, but goals are not expected to pour in for this fixture.
