Norwich manager Dean Smith faces his former side Aston Villa just 36 days after being sacked by the Midlands club as the Premier League TV schedule intensifies this week.


Smith – who led Villa back to the Premier League and inspired a terrific campaign last time out – appeared to have organised Norwich in his opening matches.

Steven Gerrard's hot start to life at Aston Villa has seen them start to look upwards as opposed to over their shoulders.

Our prediction: Norwich v Aston Villa

Villa have won two games against awkward opponents and narrowly lost two games – to Man City and Liverpool – since Gerrard's arrival.

The signs are very much looking up for the Villans and Gerrard will encourage his men to turn the screw against relegation-battlers.

Norwich have given themselves a glimmer of hope, but until they start scoring goals regularly, they are only heading to one destination.

Our prediction: Norwich 0-1 Aston Villa (7/1 at bet365)
