Burnley hosts Aston Villa
Burnley hosts Aston Villa at the Turf Moor in a match from the 21th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Burnley will make a try to shake it off after the defeat they suffered against Manchester United on Saturday. Sean Dyche’s boys hosted the Red Devils, but they conceded two goals at the end of the two halves, which guaranteed the win for the visitors. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford scored for United and this was enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to take the win.
Sean Dyche made some curious decision for the game against Manchester United. He put Jay Rodriguez and Johann Gudhmundsson on the bench, picking them for the second half. It won’t be entirely surprising if the manager decided to bring them back in the starting line-up for the team’s first game in the new year.
At this moment Burnley are 13th in the league standings with 24 points. What’s Burnley’s biggest problem this season is the lack of consistency. They looked pretty solid in the Top 10 in a certain moment of the campaign, but now things are different.
Aston Villa didn’t have a good experience in their last game in the league on Saturday. The Villans paid a visit to Watford at the Vicarage Road, but got crushed with 0-3 by the Hornets. Villa looked totally toothless against Nigel Pearson’s team and it was far from surprising that they lost.
Against Watford the manager Dean Smith left Mahmoud Trezeguet, Frederic Guilbert and Anwar El Ghazi on the bench, but maybe some of them are going to start against Burnley on Wednesday.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the Wednesday clash between Burnley and Aston Villa at the Turf Moor. Both teams need the points, so we think it’s going to be a good fixture.
