Aston Villa vs Burnley: Match Preview, Kick-off, Team news, and more

About Football Express UK

Aston Villa takes on Burnley in their penultimate Premier League game. Burnley can move above the relegation zone with a win. Whereas Aston Villa would remain on course for a mid-table finish.

Aston Villa have found much-needed stability under Steven Gerrard. Even though they have not produced the kind of results that were expected, they have played good football. Moreover, Steven Gerrard has brought the best out of several players especially Jarrod Bowen who has the same amount of goal contributions as Kevin De Bruyne this season in the Premier League.

Aston Villa looks to be a strong team as they took on Manchester City and almost won it. However, they gave away the game by conceding an own goal. The fact that they took on the table toppers and were dominating them just proves what a great manager Gerrard is. If he continues at this rate, he could be the Liverpool manager in a couple of years’ time.

Ever since Burnley showed long-time manager Sean Dyche the exit door, they have played better football. Not much better, but good enough football to get them above the relegation zone. If they win this game, they will be 2 points ahead of Leeds and would be out of the relegation zone. However, they do face an uphill battle as Aston Villa looks to be in great form. They need to play their best football if they want to stay in the Premier League in the upcoming season.
