Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has named the side that contains both Emile Heskey and Gabriel Agbonlahor for the final match of the season against Norwich.
It has been a disappointing season for Aston Villa as they have failed to not only score goals, but they have flirted with relegation through to the campaign.
However, they recently secured their Premier league status after the 1-1 draw with Tottenham. They will be facing Norwich, who have exceeded expectations this season, on the final day of the Premier league season. It is expected that this match could well be the last Aston Villa game in charge for manager Alex McLeish.
Aston Villa fans have never accepted him as their manager even when his appointment was made in the summer. However, the fans backlash has only increased during the season due to their extremely poor tactics and style of play. Aston Villa have averaged less than a goal per game and have been rated as one of the worst teams in the division to watch. It has been a similar trait for the teams managed by Alex McLeish. Birmingham city were one of the boring teams in the division prior to being relegated to the Championship under Alex McLeish last season.
Norwich manager Paul Lambert is one of the favourites to take over from Alex McLeish. Despite being the newly promoted team, he has worked wonders with the group of players he has at the club. Striker Grant Holt has become a sensation in the Premier league after scoring 14 goals for the club this season. It is expected that many clubs including Aston Villa will be in for Lambert in the summer. Alex McLeish recently expressed confidence that he will remain in charge of the team next season, but it is unlikely that it will be the case.
