Despite a battling but flawed display by Mile Jedinak, Aston Villa’s ace man, they could not head on to win and stop their defeat by Norwich.
The two teams last season, had been relegated from the Premier League in the previous season, and have found it quite tough, since their slip down into the Championship.
However, the Canaries emerged as the victors in the recent game, coming off with a 1-0 win over their opponents, by a goal scored by Nelson Oliveira. The likes of Gabriel Agbonlahor, had been unsurprisingly turgid in the game.
However, one player who performed exceptionally well, and kept on battling till the game came to an end was Mile Jedinak, an Australian International, who recently moved in the summer from Crystal Place.
In the defensive aspect of the game, Jedinak performed creditably well and was able to produce a committed display.
He was so exceptional that he was able to handle seven interceptions, while winning four tackles and making a total of six clearances. In each of these, he had done more than any of the other midfielders on the pitch ever did. Also, he was able to block two efforts sent in by Norwich that was clearly bound for the goal.
However, one flaw in his performance, was in possession. Jedinak was only able to complete 54 percent of his passes, making him the lowest out of all players in Aston Villa’s outfield.
He however, should be commended for his input in the game. Compared to fellow team mate, Ashley Westwood who completed a total of 85 percent but could only attempt 21, in 90 minutes, he had done quite well.
Even though Aston Vila could not go on to win, he has drawn quite some attention to himself.
