The Academy gave him the win – Norwich 0-2 Aston Villa

Sports news about Football Club Aston Villa

Aston Villa won by two goals against Norwich City on their visit to Norwich, thanks to points from Jacob Ramsey and Ollie Watkins and took their fourth win in six games with Steven Gerrard at the helm. Why is the victory for the academy? Not only because of Ramsey’s goal, but also the assistance of Carney Chukwuemeka in the second goal. The new coach gave Villa’s young talents minutes of play and the players pay him with good returns.

The meeting did not look easy after the defeat against Liverpool. Not because of the result, but because of the lack of attack that was shown in the last match. Of course, the rival was another and nothing less than the last in the table, but in front was an old acquaintance: Dean Smith, former manager of Aston Villa until the arrival of Gerrard.

The Villans were quick on the ball and dominated the first half. The first goal came from a quick counter – it seems to be a lethal weapon for this team – in which Watkins unloaded for Ramsey and the young talent of Aston Villa unfolded a memorable run, leaving players in the way and finishing crossed when he entered the area. Second goal for Ramsey in this Premier League and very good participation in the game.

Gerrard will have to put his head in the game against Burnley, but he will be calm because he grabbed a team that was two points from the relegation zone and today, he commands a squad that once again was hungry to enter the European competition zone.


Norwich: Krul; Aarons, Kabak, Gibson, Williams; Gilmour, Sorensen, McLean; Placheta, Pukki, Cantwell.

AstonVilla: Martínez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Ramsey; Buendía, Watkins, Young.
