Kick-off: 1500, 28/09/2019
Stadium: Villa Park
Burnley are yet to lose to a team outside the ‘big six’ in the Premier League this season and will be hopeful of extending that run when they go to Villa Park.
The Clarets have made a promising start to the campaign without the demands of the Europa League as they had last season and have collected eight points.
Villa start the weekend in the relegation zone as they bid to avoid an immediate return to the Championship and an away win looks good value at 21/10 for our first Aston Villa vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Villa are still finding their feet since promotion to the Premier League and have just one win from their first six matches.
They took the lead at both Tottenham and Arsenal but were unable to hold out, conceding twice in the last 10 minutes of last week’s 3-2 defeat despite the Gunners being down to 10 men.
The failure to control the match despite the numerical advantage is a worry for Villa, with manager Dean Smith saying: “The game became too open with them at 10 men.
“We lost our fearlessness but for some reason we retracted second half and put us under pressure. We scored again and had a good five-minute spell but retracted again.
“The players lost a bit of belief and that is what disappointed me the most. You look at the goals we conceded and they are sloppy.”
Villa have at least found the net in three of their four defeats so an away win and both teams to score is added to our Aston Villa vs Burnley betting tips at 9/2.
Last Villa EPL line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Engels, Guilbert, Mings, McGinn, Grealish, Nakamba, Trezeguet, El Ghazi, Wesley.
Villa will still be without Henri Lansbury (ankle), James Chester (hamstring) and Jonathan Kodjia. Kodjia, who fractured a cheekbone during training earlier this month, had a mask fitted on Wednesday and could return to contention next weekend.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley know themselves just how difficult it can be to get a result against the top teams but they are consistently effective in fixtures such as this.
Defeats at Arsenal and at home to Liverpool were expected but they are unbeaten in their other four matches, having beaten Southampton and Norwich at Turf Moor as well as picking up a point at both Wolves and Brighton.
Against teams that finished 14th or lower last season, Sean Dyche’s men enjoyed eight wins and just one defeat, with all four of their away wins coming in those fixtures.
All four of those victories were 2-1 or 3-1 and although we have tipped Villa to score, Burnley should have the know-how to edge this one and a 2-1 win appeals at 10/1 in the Aston Villa vs Burnley odds.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Cork, McNeil, Hendrick, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
