The Clarets are well and truly in the relegation dogfight. Over the years, Sean Dyche has ensured that his team hovers well clear of the drop zone. Their astute defensive displays have seen them get the points whenever necessary. But while other teams around them have strengthened, Burnley continue to reply a lot on subpar homegrown talent. The one foreign export they got in this summer in Maxwel Cornet is their best player by far.

The opposite stands for Aston Villa. Under Dean Smith, they were a team that also relied on English players to propel them to the Premier League. But the additions of players like Leon Bailey, Marvelous Nakamba, and Emiliano Buendia gives them flair and an element of surprise. Villa did not beat Burnley last season and drew at Villa Park. Nothing apart from a win would please their fans this time around.

Injuries: Ashley Barnes, their main man up top, is set to miss this game with a muscle injury. Maxwel Cornet is a doubt due to a knock coming into this game, but we are sure he is fit to make the starting lineup for this match-up.

Covid-19: Defender Dale Stephens is currently recovering from Covid-19, and so is Connor Roberts. It is unlikely they are back to full fitness for the game.

Burnley vs Aston Villa Prediction

The Clarets are not really in good form. Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa, meanwhile, are flying. However, the Clarets have the potential to frustrate their opponents. It will be down to how much Villa can attack Burnley and we believe they have the firepower to win this game 3-0, a result that will keep Burnley well inside the relegation battle for the Christmas period.
