The Canaries were feeling in a much better place following their 2-0 midweek victory over Queens Park Rangers at Carrow Road, thanks to goals from Nelson Oliveira and Harrison Reed helped get their previous home defeat to Sunderland out of their system.

However, things were a little more tricky at Villa where Bruce’s highly-fancied side had just one point from their opening three games and they took on City still without a league win to their name.
