Aston Villa vs. Burnley Match Analysis and Prediction

Aston Villa will be looking to build on their successful victory during the weekend in their midweek fixture in the Premier League. The home side welcomes side Burnley at Villa Park. The match schedules for Thursday with kickoff at 9 pm.

Villa registered a dramatic 1-0 win at Molineux Stadium last weekend, while Burnley managed to ease past troubled Arsenal with a 1-0 win at Emirates Stadium.

Many would not have thought the side with a start off the season on a high note after defeats in six matches. The highlight for the season was when Villa edged past Liverpool in a 7-2 win. There have been moments of brilliance from the side this one, and their last weekend win proved much of this.

However, while the West Midlands outfit only sits 10th on the table after their derby success at Molineux. The side has two games in hand, putting them on the level with third-placed Leicester City on the table. A win this weekend might boost their chances of a top-six contention at Villa Park.

On the other hand, Sean Dyche gained his first win in 2011 at Emirates last weekend against Arsenal. The side received a major boost after Granit Xhaka received marching orders after standing orders. The win was sealed after Aubameyan netted an own goal to land Burnley with three points.
