Turf Moor, Burnley, England
Key Stat: Despite their win at Anfield, Burnley still lack goals – their ten so far is the joint-lowest in the league.
Expert Verdict: Burnley stunned Liverpool in their last league game and then maintained their form by winning in the FA Cup against Fulham too. Aston Villa have returned to winning ways too, however, and there may be very little between these two matches.

Aston Villa are unbeaten against Burnley since returning to the Premier League. Last season, they drew 2-2 at Villa Park before Villa’s New Year’s Day victory at Turf Moor. Wesley and Jack Grealish scored first-half goals for Villa, and Chris Wood’s late goal was not enough to get the hosts back in it. This season’s match at Villa Park ended in a goalless draw, however.
Aston Villa are favourites to beat Burnley and can be backed at 21/20 with 888sport, Betway and 10Bet. The Draw is a best price of 13/5 with Bet365.
Under 2.5 goals is 10/11 with Bet365 and goals have been lacking this season.
Ollie Watkins, up front for Villa, is 7/4 with Betway to score at any time,
Aston Villa are back to winning ways but Burnley will want to build momentum after their Anfield win and, at Turf Moor, should not be discounted.
