Norwich City will face Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday in their final game of the Championship season (kick-off 12.30pm).

The Canaries go into the match on the back of securing promotion against Blackburn Rovers last Saturday, with goals from Marco Stiepermann and Mario Vrancic ensuring City will be playing Premier League football next season.

Ticket information

Meet the opposition

Aston Villa currently sit 5th in the table, six points above Middlesbrough in 7th place meaning they  have already secured a play-off place.

Villa drew against Leeds United at Elland Road last time out, with Anwar El Ghazi’s red card in the second half overturned, which makes him available for Sunday’s game.

City come up against a Villa side who have lost just one of their last twelve games in the league, with their last defeat coming against West Brom on February 14 at Villa Park.

Manager Dean Smith was appointed in October 2018 after impressing the Villa hierarchy at Brentford.

Villa’s form has coincided with the return of Jack Grealish who has been a key player under Smith, with the midfielder winning nine of his last 10 Championship games.
