STAT-ATTACK

Head-to-head

It was honours even in the corresponding fixture in October – Paul Lambert’s first meeting with his former employers ended 1-1.

The Canaries have lost only one of the five Premier League meetings between the sides at Carrow Road.

Norwich

Norwich failed to register a shot on target against Stoke last time out (excluding blocked shots). It was the third time that has happened in the last two months.

The Canaries have won fewer games in 2013 than any other Premier League team.

However, Norwich are unbeaten in their last seven league games at Carrow Road (W2, D5).

Only QPR and Reading have a worse record against teams in the bottom half of the table than Norwich (W4, D9, L4).
Grant Holt is standing by to make his 400th career league appearance.

Aston Villa

Villa have conceded a goal in each of their last 19 Premier League games, the longest such run of the season. Their last clean sheet came in a 0-0 draw with Stoke on 8 December.

Only Newcastle (66) and Reading (65) have conceded more goals than Villa (64) in the Premier League this season.

Paul Lambert’s side have lost all 10 league games this season in which they have been behind at half-time.

The only players in the top five European leagues to score more league goals than Christian Benteke (13) in 2013 are Lionel Messi (18) and Cristiano Ronaldo (17).

Benteke has now scored a club record 18 Premier League goals in a season. The last Villa player to score 20 league goals in a season was Peter Withe during the title-winning 1980-81 campaign.
