Aston Villa play host to Norwich City at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 3 of the 26 games.
The last time the two teams met at Aston Villa was more than a decade ago, in October 1994, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
