ON THIS DAY

Steve Bruceโ€™s first ten games in charge had seen him win five and lose twice, a significant improvement over his predecessor.

Goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini made his final appearance for Villa aged 21 before moving on to Atalanta BC for a fee of ยฃ3,870,000 in July 2018.

Gollini had only joined Villa 5 months earlier from Hellas Verona for ยฃ4,500,000 however he was deemed surplus to requirements by Steve Bruce.

Gollini made 20 appearances for Villa conceding just 19 goals.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œI can accept getting beat, what I canโ€™t accept is players not putting their boots on, not turning up.

โ€œWe did not do enough with the ball or without it and we got exactly what we deserved from the game - nothing. I canโ€™t remember a chance, I canโ€™t remember a cross going into their box, and the number of times we gave the ball away was totally unacceptable.

โ€œEverything was set up for us after our late winner against Wigan at the weekend and I thought we would go into the game bouncing, but it never happened.

โ€œNorwich were on the back of a tough run but we didnโ€™t put them under any pressure at all. You have got to play at a certain level if you want to play for Aston Villa and they didnโ€™t come anywhere near to reaching that.

โ€œHaving seen that I can see why the club decided to make a change and bring me in.โ€

Steve Bruce, Tuesday, 13 December 2016.

*Sky Sports*
Tuesday, 13 December 2016

Nelson Oliveiraโ€™s second-half strike handed Norwich a 1-0 win over Aston Villa at Carrow Road on Tuesday night.

The Portuguese strikerโ€™s curled effort from 20 yards out left Villa goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini rooted to the spot and earned Norwich their second win of December - in what was the fifth โ€™10 in 10โ€™ match on Sky Sports.

Norwich were good value for their win after enjoying the majority of possession, while Villaโ€™s one shot on target came in second-half stoppage time.

The win moves Norwich up to eighth in the Sky Bet Championship, while defeat leaves Villa in the bottom half in 13th.

The Canaries headed into the match having lost six of their last seven league matches, while Villa in contrast had been defeated just once in nine games.

However, in a first half of little chances, it was Norwich who looked the stronger of the two sides, and their first opportunity fell to Graham Dorrans, who saw his effort from the edge of the area deflected over the bar.

Midway through the half, a double save from Gollini kept Norwich at bay, with the Villa keeper initially parrying a 30-yard strike from Martin Olsson.

The ball fell into the path of striker Oliveira, but Gollini recovered in time to make himself big and block the second attempt.

Norwichโ€™s greatest chance at an opener fell on the hour mark, but Alan Hutton did brilliantly to get a touch on Robbie Bradyโ€™s strike and send the effort wide after Jonny Howson played him in.

The miss did not matter for the hosts, as two minutes later Oliveira picked the ball up 20 yards out before bending a low effort into the far corner, with Villa โ€˜keeper Gollini not moving.

After taking the lead, it was Norwich who looked more likely to double their advantage, with Oliveira failing to find the target after shooting on the turn.

Jacob Murphy then went close with a drilled effort from the edge of the box, as Villa soon turned to pumping it forward with Rudy Gestede coming off the bench.And Villa did have a penalty shout in the final play of the match, but the referee waved away Villaโ€™s claims after Ross McCormack went down under minimal pressure.

With McCormack on the ground and Villa players appealing, the attention moved away from Jonathan Kodjiaโ€™s blocked effort, which proved to be their first shot on target with the final kick of the game.
