Burnley vs Aston Villa Prediction & Match Preview

Burnley vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).

Wednesday’s football game at Turf Moor pits together Burnley and Aston Villa, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. 

Burnley aim to build on a historical 1-0 win over Liverpool, and they are must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Villa. Boss Sean Dyche should have a full squad to choose from. 

The Villans, on the other hand, recorded a routine 2-0 win over Newcastle United in their last league match.

Jack Grealish and Co. are enjoying a season to remember, but beating Burnley at Turf Moor is easier said than done. 

A close match is on the horizon, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Brazil attacker Wesley remains on the sidelines with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. 

In the first half off the season the two teams played out a goalless draw at Villa Park.

Team News:

Burnley lost Charlie Taylor to yet another injury in the second half against Liverpool - the left-back missed out against Fulham and Dyche has conceded that he will probably not be back in time for Wednesday.

Erik Pieters will therefore continue to deputise in defence, while further changes from the cup win should see Nick Pope, Ben Mee and Ashley Westwood all return, but Robbie Brady is a doubt with a knock.

Rodriguez will certainly hope to have done enough to displace Chris Wood up top, but the latter has scored in three of his in four top-flight starts against Villa and will not relinquish his place without a fight.

Villa will welcome John McGinn back from suspension for this tie, and while it would be harsh to drop Marvelous Nakamba after his stellar showing against Newcastle, the Zimbabwean is expected to make way.

Kortney Hause remains doubtful with an ankle problem, but McGinn should be the only change from the side that comfortably dispatched Newcastle on Saturday.

Smith's side are closing in on a deal to sign Morgan Sanson from Marseille, Olympiens manager Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed, and the club are expected to announce the midfielder's arrival in the coming days.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Brady, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Luiz, McGinn; Traore, Barkley, Grealish; Watkins
