Match Preview

Aston Villa will be looking to record a second straight Premier League victory this weekend, as they travel to Turf Moor. Emery’s side may a slow start to the campaign, as they were beaten 5-1 in their first away match of the season. However, they have responded to that early set back with two straight wins in all competitions, scoring nine goals and failing to concede in showdowns against Everton and Hibernian.

The Villa boast a strong recent record against the Clarets, as they have won two of their last three away matches against Burnley. That is an excellent return in this fixture, as the Midlands side had previously recorded two wins from their first 29 visits to Lancashire.

Burnley will be playing just their second game of the Premier League season this weekend, as their game against Luton Town on matchday two was called off. The Clarets suffered a heavy 3-0 loss in their opening match of the season against Man City. They will be looking to avoid losing each of their opening two Premier League matches for the second straight season.

Burnley’s recent home struggles would be a minor issue, as they have lost two of their previous three at Turf Moor after going 21 without defeat in front of their home fans. They haven’t suffered back-to-back home defeats in any competition since May 2022.

Burnley vs Aston Villa Prediction

This should be a really interesting showdown at Turf Moor this weekend. Burnley’s recent struggles at home could be a trend to consider, while the Villa have been excellent in each of their last two. Therefore, we will be siding with the visitors this weekend.
