Aston Villa expected 4-3-3 v Norwich: Neil Taylor starts in two changes
By Amir Mir
Aston Villa could make two changes to the side that takes on Norwich in a Championship clash on Saturday afternoon.
Prior to the international break, Steve Bruce’s side picked up a valuable 2-0 win against relegation strugglers Wigan.
Now, Jordan Amavi and James Bree could be axed for the weekend fixture with Scott Hogan and Henri Lansbury possibly replacing them in the starting line-up.
Bruce could stick with the same backline that kept a clean sheet during their last game with Mile Jedinak once again partnering James Chester at the back.
Nathan Baker might not be fit for the encounter, therefore, Jedinak might continue in his new role with Alan Hutton and Neil Taylor also contenders to start.

In the middle of the park, Lansbury could return to the starting line-up after coming back from injury a fortnight ago.
The former Nottingham Forest man will be tasked to provide the creativity if he starts alongside Conor Hourihane with the more defensive-minded Gary Gardner another possible starter.
In the attacking third, Hogan could lead the line after scoring his first goal for the club against Wigan last time out with Jonathan Kodjia possibly dropping out wide.
Winger Albert Adomah might occupy the other wing with the Ghana international expected to provide the service for his lone striker.
In other Aston Villa news, Steve Bruce has told Tony Xia to buy this Real Madrid player.
