Norwich City vs. Aston Villa
Minute Commentary
90' FT: NORWICH 0 VILLA 1
For the third time in nine months Paul Lambert takes his Villa side to Carrow Road and sees them claim victory against his former club. The goal came on the half hour, Libor Kozak netting a matter of minutes after coming on as substitute. Although the points are precious to Villa, they came at a cost, because leading scorer Christian Benteke limped off with what appeared to be a groin injury in the first half and he will likely be sidelined several weeks. Norwich had only themselves to blame for allowing the visitors to keep their first clean sheet in 27 outings. Robert Snodgrass saw a seventh-minute penalty well saved by Brad Guzan and Ricky van Wolfswinkel missed a glorious chance soon after. Villa hit a post through Andreas Weimann and although being on the back foot for most of the second half defended competently enough. It's not often we've been able to say that in recent months.
90' CATCHING THE EYE
Leandro Bacuna, who has just tracked back to make a saving tackle, has been outstanding for Villa today.
90' BEEFING UP THE ATTACK
Defender Michael Turner is staying forward to lead the Norwich attack as they try to snatch an equaliser.
90' STOPPAGE TIME
There will be a minimum of five minutes of added time.
89' GUZAN SAVES THE DAY
A wonderful cross from the left by Garrido hits Hooper on the leg and looks to be flying into the roof of the net. Guzan has other ideas and makes an acrobatic save to tip over the bar.
87' POOR FIRST TOUCH
Villa try to hit Norwich on the counter-attack, but Helenius shows a woeful first touch to try and collect a Weimann pass and the chance is gone.
85' NORWICH BOOKING
Turner is shown the first yellow card of the day for a reckless tackle on Luna.
84' LIVING DANGEROUSLY
The ball bounces dangerously around inside the Villa area before Snodgrass lays it off to Van Wolkswinkel, but his goalbound shot is blocked by Clark.
82' DEFLECTED WIDE
A fierce centre from the right from Russell Martin hits Clark on the knee and luckily ends up in the stand behind the goal rather than past his own goalkeeper.
80' SELFISH FROM TONEV
Villa are not far away from a second. Delph feeds Kozak, who rather selfishly tries a shot rather than playing in the better-placed former Leeds man.
78' VILLA SUBSTITUTION
Villa make another change, with Yacouba Sylla taking the place of Tonev.
76' POOR FROM PILKINGTON
A Ciaran Clark handball gives Norwich a free-kick in a dangerous position on the right. Snodgrass picks up the unmarked Pilkington, who miskicks from near the penalty spot.
73' CLARK HEADS WIDE
Clark rises well under pressure to meet a Banuna corner with a downward header that is only a couple of yards wide. Tonev then produces a tame long-range shot that is straight at Ruddy.
70' HOOPER LOOKS LIVELY
Hooper is involved immediately, making a bright run down the inside-right channel to collect a pass from Fer. The cross is blocked but it gives the crowd some cause for optimism.
69' LUNA LIMPS ON
Luna has a leg injury and his continued participation is in doubt.
68' RELIEF FOR TONEV
A dreadful pass by Tonev presents Norwich with a chance to attack, but the final ball drifts harmlessly across the face of goal.
66' NOT TOO FAR AWAY
Nicklas Helenius sees his long-range free-kick deflect off a team-mate in the wall and drop just the wrong side of the crossbar.
65' CROWD VENT FRUSTRATION
The crowd are critical of Chris Hughton for taking off Redmond. I do not agree, the young winger has flattered to deceive today.
64' DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION
Gary Hooper comes on to make his Norwich debut, replacing Elmander. Anthony Pilkington comes on for Redmond.
62' VILLA SUBSTITUTION
Nicklas Helenius replaces Gabriel Agbonlahor for Villa.
61' GUZAN ESCAPES
Martin plays an excellent one-two with Howson to find space in the box, but he fails to look up before delivering the cross and Clark clears. Snodgrass then plays in a dangerous ball that Guzan claws away.
58' CLEAN SHEET BONUS
With players on such huge Premier League salaries, do clubs still pay clean sheet bonuses? With his side's dire defensive record Paul Lambert should consider paying big bucks for a shutout, but withholding all pay should his side concede. It might focus the minds of his defenders.
57' STILL FINDING HIS RANGE
Not for the first time, Tonev collects the ball and tries an instant shot. Not for the first time it's well wide of the target.
56' A VITAL COG?
I always thought Sebastien Bassong (who limped off earlier) was a key player in this Norwich team. But they won 56 per cent of their matches without him last season and only 26 per cent with him in the side.
54' WELL OVER THE TOP
Weimann has been Villa's best player for me so far today, but will not be proud of an attempted curling shot that clears the bar by a distance.
52' INJURY A PAIN FOR VILLA
Groin strains can take several weeks or even longer to clear up, so that Benteke injury could potentially be a huge blow for Villa as he nets such a high percentage of their goals.
49' HOPE FOR NORWICH
Twice in this dismal recent defensive run of Villa they have got to within ten minutes of keeping a clean sheet. Michael Kightly netted a consolation for Stoke in the 80th minute back in April and Ashley Westwood's own goal at home to West Ham three minutes from time in February also robbed them of a shutout.
47' BENNETT HEADS WIDE
An early Norwich free-kick from Snodgrass is headed wide by Bennett after Guzan had come and failed to gather.
46' HERE WE GO AGAIN
Norwich get the second half under way.
45' HT: NORWICH 0 VILLA 1
Villa lead at the interval in what has been an absorbing match that has seen both defences stretched by lively attacking play. Norwich will be regretting missing a seventh-minute penalty, harshly awarded for handball against Ciaran Clark. Robert Snodgrass saw his effort superbly saved by Brad Guzan. Ricky van Wolfswinkel then failed to hit the target from three yards out with only the goalkeeper to beat. Villa had been lively themselves up front and Andreas Weimann saw his curling shot come back off the post. But they must have been despairing when leading scorer Christian Benteke left the field through injury. Substitute Libor Kozak had other ideas, though, scoring from close range on the half-hour just moments after coming on to give the visitors the lead.
45' HIGH AND WIDE
I watched a lot of Nathan Redmond during his time at Birmingham. He beats his man before trying an ambitious shot that would end up in the goal once in a thousand if he was lucky. Instead, it goes high into the stands. Seems nothing much has changed.
42' KOZAK IN THE WARS
Delph finds Tonev, who screws a shot well wide. Kozak looks to have hurt his wrist, but he will carry on.
39' VILLA SUBSTITUTION
Bassong has tweaked his hamstring and that is game over for the defender. On comes Ryan Bennett.
38' FINE SAVE FROM RUDDY
Agbanhalor whips in a magnificent dipping cross from the left. Weimann fails to make contact, but Ruddy is still called on to make a wonderful sprawling save.
35' POINTS IN THE BAG?
If Villa could keep a rare clean sheet they'd be on the way to three points here.
31' MORE ON THAT GOAL
The substitute strikes immediately. A terrific ball from Weimann found the Czech striker in space. Ruddy made a magnificent initial save, but then Agbonlahor unselfishly teed up Kozak from the rebound and he made no mistake from close range.
30' GOAL: NORWICH 0 VILLA 1
Libor Kozak gives Villa the lead.
29' VILLA SUBSTITUTION
Benteke's day is done. He makes way for Libor Kozak, the top scorer in the Europa League for Lazio last season.
27' BENTEKE DOWN AGAIN
Benteke comes back on the pitch and collapses after taking two strides. He'll have to come off. Van Wolfswinkel's first-time half-volley is then a whisker wide of the post.
26' BENTEKE HURY
Benteke slips awkwardly under a challenge from Bassong and needs treatment for what appears to be a groin injury. He is limping quite badly. Good news for Norwich, but bad if you have made him your fantasy football captain for the weekend. Oh dear.
25' TAME HEADER
Van Wolfswinkel rises to meet a free-kick from the left by Snodgrass, but the effort lacks venom and Guzan saves comfortably at the foot of his post.
23' PUTTING HIMSELF ABOUT
Could Ricky van Wolfswinkel turn into the new Kevin Davies? Norwich's combative Dutch striker has committed more fouls in the Premier League this season (12) than any other player. It was a statistic the former Bolton striker often topped during his time at the Reebok Stadium.
20' SCARE FOR NORWICH
Benteke combines brilliantly with Agbonlahor before seeing his shot from the edge of the area deflected just wide of the post by the whole-hearted Turner. Vlaar then goes close from the resulting set-piece.
19' VILLA CATCH THEIR BREATH
Benteke beats his man down the left, but the Belgian's low cross fails to find a team-mate and Bassong gratefully clears.
17' GOLDEN OPPORTUNITIES
Norwich have not scored in the first half this season. They're not likely to get two better opportunities than a penalty and a header from little more than two yards out.
15' ON THE BACK FOOT
Norwich are piling on the pressure here. Villa's defence looks very nervous and there have been several occasions when they have inexplicably allowed high balls to drop in the area rather than head them away.
13' BAD MISS BY VAN WOLFSWINKEL
Villa's defence is all over the place here. Snodgrass fails to get on the end of a Garrido cross from the left and then Van Wolfswinkel chests over a Redmond centre from only two yards out. Why did he not head it home?
10' I OWED YOU ONE
Not intentionally of course, but perhaps Mr Foy is subconsciously levelling things up after giving the Canaries a very rough deal at Sunderland last season.
9' CLARK THANKFUL
Clark will be delighted with that save. The award of a penalty against him was a bit harsh considering he was so close to Nathan Redmond when the ball was headed straight at him.
7' PENALTY SAVED
Snodgrass sees his effort brilliantly saved by Guzan, diving to his left.
6' NORWICH PENALTY
Norwich have a penalty for handball by Ciaran Clark.
4' OFF THE POST
Villa go even closer. Agbonlahor tears clear down the left and cuts the ball back for Weimann. His curler comes back off the post, at which point Benteke is flagged for offside as he tries to stab home the rebound.
3' HIGH AND WIDE
Norwich try to respond and Redmond skies a shot into the stands.
2' EARLY VILLA THREAT
Immediately Villa threaten. Agbonlahor finds Weimann, who ghosts past a defender and shoots straight at Ruddy from the edge of the area.
1' HERE WE GO
Norwich have won the toss and decide to attack the goal to our right. Villa get the game under way.

0' PREVIEW
A return to Carrow Road is getting a little old hat for Paul Lambert - this will be a third return to his old stamping ground since walking out on Norwich for Aston Villa before the start of last season. City supporters, though, are unlikely to have forgotten and the Scot can expect some chirping from the Canaries faithful every time he ventures out of his dugout to the technical area. Lambert's best answer to keep the home followers quiet would be for his side to do exactly what they have done on his two previous visits here - come away with a victory. These sides are both struggling in the bottom third of the table, which is a little more surprising in Villa's case since they recorded such an emphatic win at perennial Champions League hopefuls Arsenal on the opening day of the season. Norwich, for their part, have picked up all four of their points at home, but scoring has been a problem. That is not surprising if you have only four shots and see only 32 per cent possession as they did at Spurs last weekend. “It's all well and good camping outside your box absorbing pressure but by the end you're so tired you can't create anything,” goalkeeper John Ruddy told BBC Radio Norfolk this week. “The players we've got and the signings we've made I just think we can be a bit more aggressive in our play and really ask questions of other teams as opposed to making them ask all the questions of us.” Well, Norwich, today could be your day. Villa come here boasting a club record 26 league games without a clean sheet, dating back to a goalless draw with Stoke on Dec. 8. If you can't score against them something is most certainly wrong. Today's game kicks off at 1245BST, so join us around 30 minutes beforehand when we should have the confirmed team news, which will be followed by a match commentary.
0' PLAYERS TO WATCH
Norwich have been struggling for goals so far this season, netting just three in their opening four games. It's not quite how manager Chris Hughton would have expected things turning out when he added forwards Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Gary Hooper, Johan Elmander and Nathan Redmond to his squad for an estimated £16.7 million over the summer. Former Celtic striker Hooper is being tipped for his debut today and we'll see whether he's a natural goal-scorer no matter what the level having scored 31 goals for the Glasgow giants last season. Villa's Christian Benteke certainly has had no trouble with the step up in class since moving from Genk in the Belgium League. He netted again in a losing cause against Newcastle last weekend and has 18 Premier League goals in 2013, three more than the next best, the 15 from Manchester United's Robin van Persie. Benteke might rightly point out that the goalposts are always eight yards (7.32m) apart, whoever the opposition.
0' HEAD TO HEAD
Villa have the better head-to-head record in league meetings between the sides with 21 wins to 16 by Norwich and 15 games being drawn. At Carrow Road, Norwich have 13 wins to five by Villa, with a further eight meetings ending up all square. The corresponding match last season on May 4 saw Villa win 2-1, Gabriel Agbonlahor scoring both goals for the visitors, the winner coming in the last minute after Grant Holt's 74th-minute penalty looked to have snatched a point for the home side. That was the second successful return to Carrow Road in a matter of months for former Canaries boss Paul Lambert, Villa having gone to Norfolk in December and recorded a 4-1 win in the Carling Cup with goals from Brett Holman (21 mins) and Christian Benteke (90) and two from Andreas Weimann (79 and 85). The earlier league meeting between the sides at Villa Park on Oct. 27 had finished 1-1. Benteke had given the Midlanders a 26th-minute lead, but Norwich levelled 11 minutes from time through Michael Turner, the home side having seen Joe Bennett dismissed early in the second half.
0' FORM GUIDE
Norwich start the weekend in 15th place with four points from four games, one more than Villa, who sit just above the relegation zone in 18th. The 2-1 loss against Villa in May is Norwich's only defeat at Carrow Road in 11 league matches in 2013, though they are looking to record successive home wins for the first time since December. If you look back to last November, Villa's away defeats have come at Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea again. They earned 21 points away from home last season and 20 at home, so they are clearly no mugs on the road.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
Elliott Bennett remains sidelined for Norwich as he continues to recover from surgery on a cruciate knee ligament injury, otherwise the Canaries have a clean bill of health. Gary Hooper, who was an unused substitute at Tottenham on Saturday, could start up front following his recovery from a shin problem. Villa lost Jores Okore for the rest of the season when the 21-year-old damaged knee ligaments in the defeat by Newcastle last weekend. Ciaran Clark will likely just get the nod ahead of Nathan Baker in his place. Charles N'Zogbia is unavailable with a long-term injury.
0' MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Taking charge of today's game is Chris Foy, who has been on the select list of referees since 2001. The Merseyside official has only been given one 2013-14 Premier League appointment before today, showing four yellow cards in the match between Newcastle and Fulham at the end of August. Norwich have cause to remember Foy from last season, however, as the only red card he handed out in the league was a rather harsh decision that saw Canaries goalkeeper Mark Bunn dismissed for handling outside his box against at Sunderland. Foy also awarded the Black Cats a debatable penalty in that match, while denying Norwich a more obvious spot-kick of their own after adjudging Danny Rose handled outside the area rather than inside. The referee's assistants today are Stuart Burt and Matthew Wilkes, while Geoff Eltringham is the fourth official.
