Aston Villa is welcoming Burnley to Villa Park in round 18 of the English Premier League. Aston Villa is safe from the relegation, they have nothing to play for, but they surely want to get their fans something to enjoy. Burnley is in the relegation zone, but they are only 1 point behind Leeds, and they need a positive result here.

Aston Villa hasn’t won any of their last 2 games, and overall, their form hasn’t been great. Villa is already making moves on the market, and they have signed Coutinho on a permanent deal from Barcelona. With 44 points, Aston Villa is now in 14th place. When it comes to scoring goals, Villa has been decent with 49 scored goals, but their defense has to be a bit better next season if they want to be competitive. Aston Villa conceded 50 goals so far this season. Steven Gerrard is an excellent young coach who will only become better, but I think when he will be given the chance to sign the players he likes, Aston Villa will become a better team, and with that, they will be more competitive.

As I’ve mentioned, Burnley is still in the relegation zone, and their last 2 losses haven’t helped at all. Before this 2-game losing streak, Burnley was on a nice roll, they have won some games, and that has gotten them close to exiting the relegation zone. Offensively, Burnley is one of the weakest teams in the league, they have scored only 32 goals so far, but their defense has been the best of all the bottom teams in the EPL this season. Burnley conceded 50 goals so far. Cornet is the leading goalscorer for Burnley with 8 goals. There are a bunch of injuries in Burnley right now, and that will significantly reduce their depth, which they can’t afford. Burnley hasn’t been great at all this season, not even after the coaching change, but they can still pull this off. Burnley needs a positive result here, if they don’t get it, they will need the win from their last game, and that will be really hard.

Burnley has won only 2 games on the road so far this season, and I don’t think that will change here. Aston Villa is the better team here with a lot fewer injuries, and I think they will get the win here.
